Beta Preview Of iCloud For iOS 6 With New Reminders, Notes, Calendar And Find My iPhone Web Apps

Back in May Apple launched a beta version of iCloud’s website that was only up for a small amount of time. While this beta version of iCloud’s website was only up for what seemed like moments screenshots of the website spread around the internet that hinted Apple would be adding Notes and Reminders web apps for iCloud.

After Apple launched this beta version of iCloud’s website I began checking the site off and on to catch when it would become fully functional. Sure enough, today I visited and to my delight it allowed me to login with my developer account.

Upon logging into you will be presented with seven icons, four of which will have a beta banner in the left hand corner of them – Calendar, Notes, Reminders and Find My iPhone.

The web version of Find My iPhone looks very sharp, and includes a battery life indicator for your devices so that you will know how long you have to actually find it. Interestingly enough, it looks like Apple has decided to stick with Google Maps for Find My iPhone rather than using its own technologies mixed with Tom-Tom.

As for the Reminders and Notes applications they are pretty much a replication of the iOS versions. You can add Notes and Reminders in real-time just like you would be able to on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.

Last, but not least the Calendar application is just like its iOS counterpart, and functions that exact same way. To be honest, it is really impressive how Apple was able to create such stunning replications of these stock iOS apps on the web.
