Apple iCloud

It is great if you are a die-hard Apple user. It integrates virtually every aspect of Apple products among different devices, making it super easy to share things. It fails pretty hard when tasked with other product types (such as Microsoft), and I have found it rather difficult to manage since it seems to take over so forcefully.

Every time we have a new client we send a consumer notice out that allows clients to easily “acknowledge” receipt by virtually signing the form. Likewise for all residential and commercial leases and agreements of sale, PDFfiller has been a lifesaver. What used to be a major time suck to complete a simple form, for example, a seemingly simple task which should have been the easiest part of completing a sea always took a tremendous amount of time, because PDFs are simply not editable. Contracts would need to be filled out with pen and paper. They were hard to read, required scanners and/or fax machines, and took tons of time away from more productive income-generating activities. PDFfiller finally solves all of these problems for us.

Pros

Apple iCloud

  • Apple iCloud integrates beautifully with the entire Apple ecosystem. Whether you are using a MacBook, iPhone, and/or iPad they will all sync at a moments notice through iCloud.
  • As a company, Apple has a strong reputation for security. Many cloud storage providers share huge amounts of user data, however, Apple prides themselves on avoiding that.
  • Even though Apple iCloud is optimized for Apple devices, data stored on the cloud can be accessed through a web browser on a computer running essentially any operating system.

PDFfiller

  • Its user interface makes it a very easy-to-operate app. Without having adequate technical knowledge any user can operate it easily.
  • It works very fine on adding text on any part of a PDF document and It also allows users to delete pre written text from a pdf file.
  • It can also convert PDF files in other office formats with good quality.

Cons

Apple iCloud

  • You will constantly run into issues where iCloud is optimized or available only for Apple's own product line. That's frustrating.
  • Apple's Mail app and service are just beleaguered by the likes of Gmail. Perhaps even Zoho does better than them on the web.
  • iCloud seems optimized more for a mobile user, so desktop apps & services feel a bit force-fitted.

  • Manually resending the document was a feature that seems to have been taken away.
  • Templates for Send To Sign letters. I basically have to type the same information over and over again each time. I was hoping that it would save it but it doesn't seem to have that function
  • Signer cannot save the document once it has been signed. I have to make sure that there is a note within the email that states that I will send them a copy.
  • Wish it had a way to send me a copy of the email I sent.

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.

Apple iCloud overall performs well for me. Obviously, it is more suited for the pure Apple/Mac environment (as I believe OneDrive is for the pure Windows environment). However, it has worked well for me as I added Windows-based systems to my business. Since I initially had only Apple/Mac devices and computers I give Apple a high-five for making the service available to Windows-based and multi-based environments so that I didn't have to migrate my files.

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 gives pretty miserable support unless you pay a lot to have the support packages. Usually, it is more helpful to do a Google search of the issue, but at that point, it isn't product support, it's just me doing the job myself. Other programs seem to have much better, and free, support.

PDFfiller is awesome. We felt like we struck gold when we found it because of all of the times we burned hours trying to work around the limitations of PDF files and editing capabilities. Real estate is a very document-heavy industry so a regular part of our lives involves getting documents prepared, executed, and filed. PDFfiller is a tool that allows this part of our job to be way breezy, saving our office time and money.

Alternatives Considered

Apple iCloud

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.

I have used other editors such as Adobe Acrobat and, in my opinion, for the money Adobe costs, if the need is just to edit pdf I would go with PDFfiller. It is a really easy tool to use. It's learning curve is not that steep and it does pretty much everything I need from it.

Return on Investment

Apple iCloud

  • Awesome for when I get a new device and just want to set it up like I had it before
  • Great for keeping data synced between all devices
  • Forces me to stay in the Apple ecosystem and use their apps even if there are better alternatives

  • A positive impact is that you can create your files without problems and also add watermark to avoid plagiarism or misuse of information.
