Command Guru, an Italian software house that develops applications for iPhone, iPad, and Mac OS X, has started an iCloud Petition that allows existing MobileMe customers to vote for the features they want transitioned to the new service when it goes online this fall.
It had already been confirmed (sort of) that Apple was planning to hear customers out and consider keeping the most requested MobileMe features when transitioning to iCloud.
The people at Command Guru
decided to help, so they kicked off this petition
for future iCloud subscribers in which they can vote for their favorite MobileMe feature, such as iWeb Publishing, Gallery, and iDisk.
The developer acknowledges that Apple’s guidelines for the shift to iCloud “will kill a few synchronizing goodies like keychain, System Preferences and Mail.”
“Other services, like the Photo Gallery, iDisk space and iWeb publishing functions, will be terminated as well, and the users will have to find alternative solutions within June 30, 2012,” reads their report.
They even mention Tim Cook’s statement on the possibility of keeping some features: "Apple is open to it if there is enough feedback on the subject."
They then lay it out for MobileMe users, saying, “Command Guru has just launched the iCloud Petition. Anyone can check the services they would like to see integrated within iCloud and contribute to construct enough feedback, thus helping develop second thoughts at the Cupertino summit.”
The form can be found here. All you need to do is type in your email address, tick one or more features that you want to see moved over to iCloud, punch in your name at the end (just like you would with a formal letter) and hit send.
The message won’t go straight to Apple, of course. Rather, Command Guru will be posting timely updates on how the initiative is going.
Hopefully (for MobileMe customers) Apple will be watching.
