Two parts to this week's tutorial - PopClip and iCloud Web Apps.
PopClip is a brilliant utility that mimics the popup that appears when you select text in iOS, but on your Mac. As well as allowing you to copy and paste, it now also allows you to install extension to do all sorts of things with the selected text.
I take a look at the basic operation of PopClip as well as exploring some of the more useful extensions such as integration with Sticky Notifications and Google Translate
iCloud Web Apps are just like the standard apps you find on your Mac and iOS device - but on the web! Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Find My Phone and iWork have now been joined by Notes and Reminders. So now even if you're away from your Mac or iOS device, as long as you have an internet connection and a standards compliant browser, you can access your data from anywhere. As well as taking a brief look at all of the apps, I also point out some tasks that can only be performed from the Web Apps.

I covered the OSX 10.7.2 and iOS5 upgrades last week, but only skimmed the surface of what iCloud brings to the Mac.
This week I explore some the new iCloud features in depth but specifically looking at the impact on the Mac.
This week's members tutorial guides you through the minefield of the OSX 10.7.2 upgrade for your Mac, the migration from MobileMe to iCloud and the upgrade of your iOS devices to iOS5.
As well as the installation, migration and upgrade processes, I also take your through some of the stunning new features of iCloud and iOS5.
PopClip & iCloud Web Apps tutorial is also available to watch in Issue 5 of the ScreenCastsOnline Monthly
This issue is available for individual purchase as a back issue in the ScreenCastsOnline Monthly Magazine iPad App
