Apple iCloud

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.

Pros

  • Store documents and photos- I think this is pretty self-explanatory.
  • Allow for simpler collaboration- a few of us have started using Pages and Notes on iCloud.com to work on a few projects together. This isn't always as simple in Microsoft Office, I've found.
  • Set reminders- iCloud.com has the Reminders app that we've used as a quick, dirty system to remember to make calls or follow up with one another. It's cut down on the number of sticky notes on my desk and in my notebook.

Cons

  • The Notes app in iCloud.com lacks the same functionality as iOS/Mac, in that it doesn't recognize when you've inserted a table into a note.
  • Pages, Numbers, and Keynote aren't as up-to-date as their iOS and Mac counterparts.
  • The level of editability (adding colors, etc.) isn't there in iCloud Drive like it is with Google Drive.

It's so seamless that I can't imagine another product doing a better job synchronizing all of my devices. I simply do not think about it at all. Everything happens behind the scenes and I'm confident that Apple keeps my data safe and secure. I'm a happy customer as far as this is concerned. I have not had a bad experience with this service.

Usability

These are the reasons why I really enjoy Apple iCloud:
  • Cross device ease of use
  • The ability to easily monitor the amount of space used
  • Extremely easy to upload documents and pictures
  • It is able to be accessed from a browser, which means that it can be accessed from any device with an internet connection

Alternatives Considered

NCommand was awful. It didn't work well for us, things went missing and tended to be clunky. iCloud has been great with a cleaner interface, more options to collaborate on a document within a single URL, and just being all around simpler. iCloud also hasn't gone down and been inaccessible as often as NCommand would.

Return on Investment

  • Negative benefits. There was a significant expectation, followed by frustration.
