Apple iCloud is a document management software offering from Apple. It includes features such as access to music, photos, calendars, contacts, and documents, and it is built into every new iOS device. iCloud review not written by a techie!I personally use iCloud because I am the benefits administrator and a number of my vendors have apps that can be accessed via a smart phone. I also check my work email and have documents on my phone. A number of office positions in our company are in the same situation. I feel like it provides an extra layer of security.,iCloud is an excellent service that provides automatic backups of iOS devices and also syncing for photos, music, calendar, contacts, and documents. iCloud syncs images across your iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Windows PC. iCloud works with Macs, Windows PCs, and iOS devices and it automatically backups data for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.,With iCloud there is no web interface for photos or music. iCloud features for different functions such as photos can be confusing to set up. You can't just upload any and all files. You need other storage solutions to work in conjunction with the iCloud.,8,I really can't cite any true ROI numbers in terms of this product from a company standpoint, but personally it provides a true sense of security and can be a major time saver.,None,UltiPro, Benefitfocus, WebEx Meetings,,,Security Personal peace of mind Safety,To share information between devices,8,No,Price Product Features Product Usability Product Reputation Third-party Reviews,There wasn't really a selection process. It was just an addition.,So much of what this product does is seamless and doesn't require you to really do anything like backups. The syncing also happens automatically.,There's a lot of rules, settings, and options for using Photo Stream, and it can take a while to figure out how to use it. You can only sync date from specific apps.,8Well Synchronized With Apple iCloudApple iCloud does data backup seamlessly. I'm already using an iPhone, iPad, AppleTV and a MacBook. Apple iCloud keeps them all synchronized. I can access my photos, contacts, calendar, notes, etc., on all my devices with the confidence that they're all updated. Simply put, once I selected to do iCloud, I don't think about synching things up anymore. It's just done behind the scenes.,Synchronized Calendar Synchronized Contacts Synchronized Photos,Would like the ability to have a folder on the desktop to auto upload to iCloud Drive Would be nice to be able to share links with people like Dropbox for file sharing within iCloud Drive Unclear how to not synch select photos,9,Built into Apple devices.

For Apple devices this is what should be used for your device backups.

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.
