In case anyone wants to know a way to share a photo stream between two different iCloud users and their iPhones/iPads or what not..


---------

Let's say there is a husband and wife each with an iMac and an iPhone (keep it simple).

Create three iCloud accounts
Husband - husband@me.com
Wife - wife@me.com
Family - family@me.com

On the computers and the iPhones, set up family@me.com as the iCloud account. This will enable sharing of photos (plus, anything she takes will appear on his iPhone and both computers, and vice versa). In addition, you can do something like set up a family calendar or reminders if you like. Turn email sharing off (as well as anything else you don't want shared such as reminders, calendar, contacts, etc).

Then, on the iPhone, under the mail,contact, calendar settings, add a new account. For the husband, it will be his iCloud account. He will enable to calendar, email, contacts, etc. It can also be set up on the his computer, although it looks like for some reason the calendar is having problems.

Then, the wife will do the same with her iPhone and her computer. Now they both have a iCloud email, contacts, calendar, reminder, etc that are unique and not shared, but they also have a shared photostream.

(It works better with iOS devices and not as well with the iMac. On the iOS devices, you can add an account and set up sharing of bookmarks and such - on the iMac you can only enable mail, contacts, calendar.)

I have been doing this for the past week and a half, and it works great.

Yay, I figured out a way my wife and I can share photostream across devices and computers, but still have separate email and contacts.

I still am trying to figure out exactly what to do with Google+. I like it, just not sure how to make best use of it.

I think it would be much easier to use if you could import feeds. But then, maybe there is a fun challenge there in making it relevant without all of that. My thoughts on it are still evolving.

Just posted review of two apps on the iMore forums! "Buy Me a Pie" - a grocery list app, and "Pocket Check-Up" - a medical wellness app. Check them out!

Or maybe it's just the right combination of verbose people. I follow two people who keep up a steady stream pretty much 24/7.

I need an iPhone app that will post to google+, Facebook, and twitter. Any suggestions?

I'm hoping TweetDeck gets an update for G+.
