Platform to store test restuls

2021-03-31

Ios test result storage was made easy with this platform.

Pros

we use icloud to store our test results on daily basis. As we are heavy on IOS testing, we use icloud to store results directly from the test devices.

Cons

No need to worry about integration to any other tool. stored data can be accessed anywhere anytime by anyone.

Safety and efficiency with a modern look

2021-07-24

Best of all is being able to create hidden folders and make sure only I have access.

Pros

Its main points are the security of stored files, without any risk of being stolen by third parties.

Cons

So far I have nothing to complain about. I didn't face any problem or had something unforeseen with icloud.

There are better services for less

2021-05-04

I don't mind paying the base fee for base to protect the data stored on my phone, but I wouldn't use it for anything more than that.

Pros

iCloud automatically syncs and stores my e-mail, music, images, documents, etc from my iphone, which is especially handy when I break or loose my phone.

Cons

File organization and management is difficult to use and not user friendly.

Pleased With iCloud Services

2021-07-09

My business benefits a great deal from iCloud considering I am using/accessing a large number of client files at any given time.

Pros

I like the fact that it has real-time data syncing and the fact that it backs up both of my devices with the same files.

Cons

I don't have anything that I don't necessarily like with iCloud. I've had no issues, no security problems and no accessibility problems.

Cloud storage from Apple

2021-05-04

I have an easy time while using this software in managing my data online and securely stored it on cloud storage.

Pros

Everything stored on my iPhone like contact number, photo, video, audio and document can be backed up to the cloud storage easily by iCloud. I can access my files on my phone directly from my computer without having to transfer it manually from my phone to my computer.

Cons

I am concern on iCloud security as there are many news of people that has their iCloud account been hacked and their data is compromised.

iCloud is simply the best

2021-07-31

It allows to access data from either a computer or mobile device, and it is the best feature when you are away from your usual home base.

Pros

It is simply the best platform when it comes to storing files and data on the cloud with great security features.

Cons

Life is good when you have good internet connectivity but when you are in some remote area with low signals, the photos won't load and makes your hair pull. I encountered this situation a couple of times and I was pretty annoyed. So be mindful. The monthly storage subscription fee is low but still, it costs.

Mycloud MySecurity

2021-07-24

My experience from shifting android is like just wow very cool i really very happy and satisfied while using icloud over any platform i know its expensive while we upgrading to storage but i think it's worth coz the security and and access that it's provide i think no any company can beat so if you're like me who cares about privacy and safety i definetly suggest to shift iCloud

Pros

Yeah i am very very impressed while i am switching from android but man the icloud is just wow i can easily login everywhere and access and also manage my data too much easily and i am govt servent so i need full of security coz many files are sensitive so it helps me more and my all apps data including third party apps was very greatly stored so i can easily switch to any iPhone with only just login my icloud with all data

Cons

Coz is just like it giving 5gb free storage so i think its not enough like me if it was 10gb so i think its better, some android apps integration is not possible in iPhone coz its privacy and security issues , so except this 2 things i don't think so you get any trouble

Aging with very few features

2021-06-03

I have used Apple products for over two decades and was an early adopter of iCloud. Over the most recent years I have used their apps less and less and opted for Google Apps instead. Find my Iphone is still very useful.

Pros

Its great to be able to access data from your Apple devices online and Apple was one of the first to really pioneer cloud access for the consumer.

Cons

It seems like iCloud is just getting old with very few feature improvements or updates. The UI is stale and no one wants to use any of Apples office applications anyway since the stink.

iCloud provides a great cloud solution for Apple users, but is not designed for business use.

2021-07-28

However, the iCloud feature-set has been relatively stable for nearly a decade now, with features being added or tweaked, but not removed.

Pros

In addition, iCloud is more than just cloud storage, as it provides a robust suite of apps and tools including: Keynote, Numbers and Pages; Email, Calendar, and Reminders; iCloud Keychain (a password keeper); Find My device support (allowing you to find your lost or misplaced Apple devices); mobile device backups, and iCloud Drive which is akin to Dropbox or Google Drive.

Cons

While iCloud can be used in a business environment, it is very much designed for personal use as there is no central management console to manage multiple users.

A Great Way to Maximize storage

2020-06-26

Pros

I mean the fact that I can store all of my data on iCloud is great and I love that I can access all of it from all my devices.

Cons

The one thing I don't like about iCloud is the fact that it has all my data is known and I have to keep upgrading my storage space all the time.
