rentzsch.tumblr.com: Using ownCloud for Contacts and Calendar Syncing (instead of iCloud)
Fortunately both OS X and iOS also support CardDAV for contact syncing and CalDAV for calendar syncing. I decided the time had come for me to make the jump and host these services myself, for myself.

Fortunately I read about Alex Payne’s Sovereign project when he announced it and I remember it had contacts and calendar support. I looked into it a bit more, and discovered those services were provided via ownCloud.

The Problem With iCloud | TightWind
iCloud’s promise is a dream: your contacts, calendar, backups, songs, documents and application data are on all of your devices, whenever and wherever you need them. No need to worry about moving files from device to device on a flash drive or emailing them or any of the other crazy stuff we used to do. All of your stuff, always there when you need it. If that were completely the case, it would be a no-brainer for me. I’d implement iCloud syncing immediately, because that idea—never having to worry about where my stuff is again—is one of those ideas that makes my heart flutter with excitement.

Unfortunately, that’s not the case.

Developers dish on iCloud's challenges | Macworld
With services like Dropbox, Google Docs, and even IMAP email, users today expect their data to remain up-to-date and available on every device. iOS users want conflict-free access to their data—whether it's documents, in-game progress, or other details—on their iPads, iPhones, and Macs. Apple aims to satisfy that user need with iCloud.

With iCloud, Apple promises developers that they can keep their users’ data in sync. But while a steadily increasing number of developers are implementing iCloud support within their apps, its adoption rate still seems surprisingly low overall.

Are developers hesitant to embrace iCloud? And if so, why?
