MobileMe Syncing through .Mac SDK
 
Hi there,

is there any chance that we get MobileMe-Syncing as a MobileMe-Plugin (through the .Mac SDK)? And how are the iPhone-App plans? Do we get those notifications by the notification-framework?

Regards,

There are a few reasons we've avoided the MobileMe syncing (vs syncing over WebDAV to MobileMe). One is that we've experienced reliability problems with MobileMe syncing; we've had problems with our own syncing as well (it's a hard problem), but at least we're in control of it and able to address the issues. We also want finer granularity control over the syncing process. And another is that we want generic WebDAV syncing anyway, in order to support other hosts, etc., so that reduces the benefit of using the MobileMe APIs. (Which we do use for iCal syncing, though that has been rather problematic.)

If you can describe what would make MobileMe API syncing more desirable than our solution for your needs, perhaps we can address any shortcomings.
