Apple iCloud

iCloud is well suited for folks who are primarily working on the Apple platform. It is also a good choice for folks who are very concerned with privacy & security concerns around other platforms. Notes sync and multi-user sharing are good, especially for a basic/easy to use scenario. But for pro users, it doesn't come close to the Google Docs family.The photo backup is good for personal users, but storage is expensive in Apple's universe.

MediaFire

MediaFire is suitable for individual users that want to store and maybe share files. It has a good initial space in the free version that can be enough for most users. The same applies for small teams that want to store documents (text, presentations) and share it between members (FileDrop features can help increase collaboration and productivity). If you have a big team or want to store big files you have to upgrade to the business or pro version (the price is interesting).

Pros

  • Notes app sync across devices. Easily the only thing that iCloud does really well. It is super helpful.
  • iCloud allows seamless and good backup for desktop files from the Mac to the web.

  • FileDrop feature. This is an amazing functionality that increases collaboration among our team. People can drop files in a specific folder related to a project and we can keep it organized.
  • Mobile Apps for Android and iOS. The apps works pretty well and you can carry your files everywhere.
  • Regular and Instant Uploads - MediaFire checks for the exact same file in the cloud. If it finds it, the upload will be instant. Otherwise, it proceeds with regular upload.
  • Multiple Upload Types - Basic, Flash and HTML5

Cons

  • The user interface of the web version of iCloud is in need of a facelift.
  • Sometimes it seems like sharing large files from iCloud to other users who are not using iCloud can be problematic. I've had people report to me that they were unable to view the information that I shared with them.
  • iMessages on Mac needs to have more efficient keyboard shortcuts.

  • Ads in the free version
  • Size limitations per single file

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

Apple iCloud is very easy to use. Even without prior exposure a new user can quickly learn the ins and outs of Apple iCloud. Like many of Apple's products, Apple iCloud is very intuitive. I do think that the folder organization through the online user interface could be improved, but I'm normally on my Mac so it doesn't really impact me

Performance

Apple iCloud8.3
Based on 12 answers
Apple iCloud generally works pretty flawlessly when using it within the Apple ecosystem. There have been a few times that I have noticed the online user interface of Apple iCloud to load rather slowly. I would imagine that this also depends on other factors such as, internet connection quality and the type of stored data that's being retrieved

Alternatives Considered

Apple iCloud works on mobile devices, tablets, and computers. We are an all-apple school so using iCloud was a no brainer in comparison to using google for password management.

The only pro in MediaFire against the others is that it has a very good price.

Return on Investment

  • Minutes saved in the classroom have been priceless
  • Critical password information saves time and increases school security
  • We still need to use google for document sharing
Michelle Kelly profile photo
  • It has allowed me to easily share files with clients and friends
  • No computer client does make things a little slower/more complicated to upload to the cloud
  • Allows me to easily work on a project with someone else and recover a previous file in case of mistakes
