    Default iCloud, My Family and Devices.

    Hello all,

    This is my first post. I am trying to get my family organized now that everyone has a iPhone, iPad, MacBook and or PC using iCloud.
    I am not sure how to get started so i am going to Jump right in.
    In my house and at our jobs we have many computers using Microsoft Outlook 2007
    Each family member has a there own APPLE ID and Itunes ID (which are the same)
    ME-- Apple ID and iTunes Store ID are the same.Devices- iPhone 4S, iPad 2, Computers with outlook.
    Wife --Apple ID and iTunes Store ID are the same.Devices- iPhone 3gs, Computers with Outlook.
    Son--Apple ID and iTunes Store ID are the same.Devices- iPhone 3gs, Computers with Outlook.
    Daughter--Apple ID and iTunes Store ID are the same.Devices- iPhone 3gs, Mac Book Pro, Computers with Outlook.
    What I would like to have is each person having thier own iCloud with one calander named after them. For Example Mom Dad Son Daughter.
    I would then like to set up all the devices to see all of each persons stuff.
    Is this possible?

    Hi let me start by first saying thank you for your service .. My dad served 30 years in USN ..

    As for your question it sounds like you everyone already had there own iCloud ID so they already have there own calendars .. Try going to and see if there is a share option And you can select what email address to share it with.

    If not I dont think there is a way ..
    If I'm wrong someone will chime in ..

    On a side not just to share all your devices can share one apple id with one payment method while still having diff iCloud addresses .. That way if you buy one app all your devices can have it vs having to buy it 4 times..

    Thanks

    1. You can share your calendars via google docs we do this at our house
    2. Or Icloud
    3. You don't have to have the same itunes account to share downloaded apps, just log out of the store on the phone and log in as your spouse/child and go to the purchased apps section and you can download their purchased apps as long as you know their password that is what my wife and i do.


    edit: no idea why my formatting isn't working.

    For the iDevices, it's pretty simple, you simply add each person's iCloud account to each device and choose only the Calendar option for syncing. That gives everyone's iPhone/iPad everyone else's calendar.

    As for Outlook, Apple has a tool for that:

    Son's iCloud Calander
    Daughters iCloud Calander

    Does sharing a calendar (using the web interface of each iCloud account and clicking on the little radio waves icon on the right side of the calendar) allow all the calendars to show up on the PC? Or was that idea already shot down? I would think someone else's shared iCloud calendar would show up in your iCloud calendar on the web interface, but I'm not sure about Outlook or iOS devices. (I don't have any shared iCloud calendars with which to test.)
