Simple conversions from Acrobat PDF docs that have been created by Word, Excel, etc., probably do not need this program. But if you are ever faced with anything more than simple, straightforward conversions, this program is definitely worth it and will save hours of work. I have not found anything else that even comes close.

It seems to work very well for small group collaboration much better than it does for larger groups or more complex projects. The other (minor) thing, is that while working across locations, there isn't a chat function, which would be huge when working on documents that work off info that others have. While at the same location, working on a small project iCloud works great for us. The other issue is that some of our Android users can't do some of the same things their colleagues using iOS can while on the go.

Cons

  • It's a little challenging to edit the row breaks.
  • Sometimes selecting all the pages in a document is cumbersome. "Select all" with custom conversion does not always choose all pages.

  • Basic iCloud gives 5GB free per account - but that really needs to be per device. It is way too small when you have multiple devices.

It is a very necessary product if you are using Apple devices. If you are then you should utilize it.

It does what it does behind the scenes. Whenever you do use the interface online, its functions are very simple to use

Alternatives Considered

None, except for conversions in Acrobat.

Dropbox is a fine product. The thing that makes iCloud shine is its deep integration with Apple and Apple's legendary support. Finally, we are confident that Apple will be fully committed to privacy and our data remains safe. But, none of this is to denigrate Dropbox in any way.OneDrive isn't nearly as reliable. It seems to come and go. Also, Microsoft has had a rough past in losing customer's data (see Danger Pink, etc). And they aren't very trustworthy with privacy.
