20 March 2013Black Pixel:
As far as sync is concerned, we knew we would likely need an alternative to Google Reader as early as last year. At the time, the option that seemed to make the most sense was to embrace iCloud and Core Data as the new sync solution of choice. We spent a considerable amount of time on this effort, but iCloud and Core Data syncing had issues that we simply could not resolve.
Black Pixel has some of the smartest Mac developers in the world and in July last year, they hired Michael Jurewitz. Jurewitz was Apple’s lead developer evangelist. If Black Pixel can’t workaround the issues with iCloud and Core Data, other developers don’t stand a chance.
iCloud is broken and Apple remains mum.
