Apple makes MobileMe faster and shinier

Not to be outdone by the Apple TV, MobileMe is the second product to have received a minor update today. After a little downtime in the wee hours of dawn, MobileMe rose from its ashes with a redesigned login page, featuring a prominent news blurb at the bottom of the page and a fancy new graphic.

Although that's the most visible change, it wouldn’t have been nearly enough to merit its very own blog post. Cementing its rightful place were the other subtle changes, such as a more responsive Calendar app, several fixes related to Mail and how it works with Contacts, and other performance improvements throughout the suite. Check out this support document to get a handle on all the gory details.

Apple was also kind enough to remind us that MobileMe works best when you have the latest and greatest software installed on your Mac or Windows based PC, as well as your iPhone/iPod touch. And you know what? For once, they are right. It took a long time but I think MobileMe is finally there. It has weathered the storm and become all that it set out to be. MobileMe subscribers, do chime in with your valuable opinions and let us know whether or not you’re happy with the service.
