Is mobile me an unnessary programme?

  john bunyan 15:37 01 May 2015

I have posted this on the Apple Help, but as I have a Windows PC perhaps here is a better choice.

I have W 7 and latest I tunes. I have an iPad and several I phones used by relatives. On my start up is "Mobile me". Is this needed, or should I uninstall it? Mr Google seems to think so but maybe others will comment? I also have Outlook as e mail.

The programme shows in start in misconfig and is in Programmes and features in Control panel. Has iCloud replaced it? Will iPhones synch etc without it?

Yes it is John so you can uninstall it. Support for MobileMe was discontinued years ago.

Thanks; Odd that iTunes update did not remove it.
