iCloud is also great to keep access to photos synced across devices. Ex: I can snap a photo at a job site and have access to that photo on my desktop when I return to my office. I can then drop the photo into a document that is stored in iCloud and have instant access to that document on my iPad at a client's office later in the day. Seamless transitions make life much easier.

Koofr works as a kind of system for data filtering, which interconnects the company's clouds through different pages and services, which helps to be used in processes of information collection of any kind, and that is on different platforms so that accessing it is easy. Saving all kinds of information in the cloud of our preference is something simple to achieve if we use Koofr as the main backup software, since the platform allows us to run the largest possible number of backups depending on the plan. So, it is useful for the management of massive backups in several clouds. It adapts very well to the formats of mobile devices, which allows us to access our information stored in the clouds regardless of the site in which we are working, and lets us work in conjunction with file sharing platforms also from cell phones.

If I'm away from home, and set an appointment using my phone, that appointment automatically updates real time to my home laptop and vice-versa. It stores files (e.g photos) nicely Once it's set up, it's fairly easy to use. Read full review When using Koofr we generally evaluate the analytics of each cloud we decide to work with to store data, and based on this, we can choose whether to use it or not depending on its level of security and information encryption - since we want to access the data easily, but without having problems with intrusions. The platform allows us to make comparisons between the quality of one service and another so that we can know which clouds are the most convenient to work with, and depending on the results, these are interconnected to our other clouds in a short time. The scope achieved through Koofr is very extensive: we can schedule backups in the cloud well in advance, so it is completely unnecessary to carry out such copies without the need to run the operations manually. In terms of adaptability capabilities to office software, Koofr is perhaps the best structured service to store in the cloud the documentation work that is managed through platforms such as Microsoft Word, which requires higher levels of complexity in terms of document configuration. The plans that Koofr offers can be configured depending directly on the level of space required, so prices vary in relation to the amount of information that needs to be sent to the cloud, leaving aside the fixed monthly payments for a predetermined amount of space. Read full review Cons Customization - iCloud is great at the stuff it does well. But it lacks features that some competitors (in Google Drive or Dropbox) do really well. API support for third-party apps is really great for some other people. Remote use - Managing or accessing information from iCloud while not on one of your logged-in apple devices can sometimes be an issue. From a work computer for example. It doable, but the experience is much less user-friendly. Ability to edit documents on the cloud similar to google docs or some other competitors Read full review The connection and saving capacity that we will have from Koofr depends directly on the type of plan we choose to work with, and this can make it quite difficult to upload a certain amount of large or heavy formats to several clouds at once. Koofr's platform is not sufficiently adaptable to streaming services generally, and this makes it difficult to work with cloud copies of the streaming presentations we make on platforms like Twitch or YouTube, which limits our ability to view them in the future. If you work with many devices, the Koofr platform usually presents problems to synchronize them all, and displays the information in the cloud depending on the connection speed of each device involved, which causes that some do not have the same accessibility to the information as others.

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.

While it may be great to use with other Apple products, I find it's an absolutist-style workflow to be debilitating and to lead to many problems. When you sign into the cloud, it completely takes over your device in many ways that you don't notice at first until there is a problem.

Occasionally, large files that haven't yet been synced require a few minutes to pull down but I've rarely noticed delays. It does a good job of keeping data cached on my local machines while updating them with changes from other machines transparently.

Apple customer service is fantastic. iCloud is built with Apple in mind and its design is extremely intuitive and user-friendly. Additionally, whenever our team has encountered issues, the speed of Apple support has been more than timely in addressing our issues and solving our request. We have encountered relatively few issues in my time with the platform and this only improves our overall score for those who keep the platform stable.

Apple does offer an alternative to Office & the Google Docs family but trusting to use it with both internal and external parties is tough. Google is more universal and easier for 3rd parties to collaborate with. Apple works well for a closed internal group that is native to Apple's ecosystem. Google offers more storage space than Apple
Read full review Return on Investment If I lose track of my credentials or my continuing education documentation, I could end up not being able to renew my certification. This would lead to a major loss in revenue. Time is money and having all of my required documents easily accessible in iCloud saves me time and allows me to work more efficiently. My Apple devices were certainly not cheap purchases. iCloud has allowed me to maximize my productivity through synchronizing my work no matter which device I'm working on. Read full review There have been no drawbacks when calculating the company's overall ROI. Because we have generally expanded our storage capacity with Koofr, we have been able to work better. The gains with Koofr have been varied, as they depend directly on the amount of work to be stored in the cloud, which seasonally turns out to be small. Read full review ScreenShots
