Steve Jobs: MobileMe will get better next year

Apple boss responds to quibbles over MobileMe.

MobileMe hasn’t quite been the raving success Apple had hoped, hampered by its £59 per year price tag and a raft of syncing issues that put it well behind Google’s free suite of killer cloud services.

However, Steve Jobs thinks his offering is about to turn the corner. The main man at Apple has responded to a MacRumors reader’s complaints about the service in another unsurprisingly terse email.

The initial message said, “I desperately want to stay inside of Apple'e ecosystem as much as possible. However, MobileMe is making it very difficult for me to do so. Unreliable/unpredictable syncing, creating duplicate entries (sometimes scores of them), etc. It's almost unusable… Please tell me it well get better, and soon?”

Jobs’ one line reply? “Yes, it will get a lot better in 2011.” So, there you have it folks. MobileMe is being primed for changes next year. After the Find My iPhone feature recently went free, could Jobs and co finally be plotting a gratis service to rival Google?
