iCloud

Multi-device cloud content storage

4.5/5 (14 reviews)

iCloud provides a secure, online platform for document and data storage that can be accessed at any time, from any device. You can use iCloud to access rich media such as TV shows, songs, photos, apps, books, and movies from all your mobile devices. You can also use the iCloud to get access to important word documents and presentations, which can be shared across applications and among devices.

iCloud also records your browsing activity in Safari, memorizing your open tabs and sharing them across your Apple devices. The app will also sync your bookmarks from Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer among your Apple devices.

You can also use iCloud to store all calendar, contacts and email data. This data will be automatically updated whenever you make a change, such as creating a new calendar event or deleting an email.

Furthermore, the iCloud app can be used to store important personal data such as passwords and credit card pin codes. The device locator and remote wiping options ensure that your data is kept safe within the iCloud app.

Share this content with friends and family using the new Family Sharing features. Parental permissions can be set up through Family Sharing so that kids need to "ask permission" before they make Apple purchases.

 Great product for backups

Minimum storage is too low. I use iCloud to backup all my files on my Apple devices. Incredibly seamless to use. Great platform, makes the file transfer process very easy for new users.

Great Product

11/08/2017

Pros

Amazingly simple to use. If you have Apple products, it's as simple as using any other hard drive on the device.

Cons

The collaboration features are lacking severely. iCloud has a lot to be desired when compared to it's competitors.

Love it

10/08/2017

Pros

Love being able to log in from any device - even non iOS devices. Easy to use regardless of file type. Very efficient customer support.

Cons

Sometimes runs a bit slow when using from a windows laptop - but not sure if this is due to Microsoft or Apple.
