Pros

It's inexpensive, easy to use, secure and accessible from anywhere. Just perfect when you have several Apple devices.
I really love the simplisity and the integrations that icloud provides. If you have an iphone, mac or any other apple product or several - icloud is a best cloud solution for you.
This is a great example of how iOS users are so loyal to their Apple devices. ICloud works great and ensures your entire house is synced up and really makes life a lot easier.

Pros

Works great for those with little server experience to those who are avid users of FTP software. Personalization is great.
This is a great solution and helps us streamline a very important process.
What I like about SmartFile is that is easy to use and provides powerful features for companies that rely on FTP as part of their business.

Cons

I hate that I can't edit documents in the cloud, the UI is confusing, especially when trying to share your data with the family members on your plan.
You will experience non-stop synching issues once you get a large iCloud drive or photos library, and since it is designed to "just work" there are no controls or settings to stop it.
It get's pricey on the higher spectrum of storage requirements and given all the competitors it is hard to justify paying that much.

Cons

The automation of our file upload to the site is hit or miss.
Uploading and downloading can be painfully slow at times. And no, its not our internet.
It's a bit hard to understand the Automation rules and manage the notifications each user receives.
