So I painlessly updated both my iPhone 4 ad iPad 2 to iOS 5. One of the features I was most excited about was Photo Stream, and wouldn't ya know, it's not working. Neither is wifi sync. Yes, I have both turned on. I've taken a few test photos with my iPhone and none of them are showing up in photo stream on my iPad. It's driving me nuts. Anybody have any idea how to get this stuff working?

SN: is anyone haven troubl downloading/updating apps? Certain apps (ie Facebook) will not download. When I try on my devices it just sits there with the loading bar doing nothing. I get popups saying unable to download at this time. I also tried downloading through iTunes and I get a network error (3259 I believe). But my network is fine, and again, it's only certain apps.

There are quite a few people experiencing problems with iCloud functions still. Have a little patience - there are some bugs to iron out still. Have a look here iCloud system status link

Have you enabled Photo Stream on your Mac app also? WiFi Sync and Photo Stream are "just working" here flawlessly! I'm well impressed :-) Something else to see my iPhone "just there" in iTunes without any physical connection!

After upgrading to OS 5, Photostream seems to be working for me.

However, 2 movies I purchased on my PC via the iTunes store were downloaded to iTunes on my PC but I still can't figure out how to find them on my iPhone4 or my iPad2... Anyone got any ideas? Is the cloud overwhelmed?

Photo Stream is not just working for me . . . very buggy at this point, but I do have iMessage and find my Friends working.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

I'm on a PC, not a Mac. But I have everything enabled in iTunes that should be for WiFi Sync, didn't see anything for photo stream though.

PC shouldn't affect anything. I set up my wife's iPad with iOS 5 on her PC after getting my iPad updated on the iMac, and both were painless (other than the understandable server slowness).

I have only seen the photo sync options on the IOS devices and iphoto for Mac OS. I have not seen a PC centric way of accessing your pics. They aren't even viewable on the icloud website so I assume there is simply no PC support for that particular feature at the moment.

Just noticed something interesting on the system requirements page:

PC
■Microsoft Windows 7 or Vista (Service Pack 2 or later)
■iCloud Control Panel 1.0
■iTunes 10.5
■Outlook 2007 or 2010 (recommended for Contacts and Calendar)
■Safari 5.1.1 or Internet Explorer 8 or later (for Bookmarks)

I have yet to see this control panel for download. Looks like there may be more PC integration coming in some form.

-MikeM

edit:
More digging found this in the icloud website help link:


Add photos from your Windows desktop to your Photo Stream


From your Windows desktop, drag any photo to the Photo Stream Uploads folder you chose in the iCloud Control Panel.

Thanks. This will help with getting photos I take onto my PC, however, I'm still having the same issue. Take a picture on my iPhone 4 and its not showing up in the Photo Stream folder on my iPad 2.
