Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Cloud Drive

This is really helpful to me since I can easily share my files and pick them up wherever I go. It's super helpful because I have multiple computers, and I always need to find a flash drive to put it on. Also, since you get unlimited storage, you never have to worry about cluttering your computer with unnecessary files. As a packrat, I hate having to throw away files and with the cloud that's not an issue of mine anymore.
  • This is really portable since you can also use it on your phone.
  • It's very easy to use and learn how to use so you don't have to spend unnecessary time trying to figure out how to use the software.
  • It's very easily accessible since it's right on your computer or online.
  • Honestly it's not that well advertised so not many people know about it.
  • Also, since it's Amazon people might be wary about it costing too much money when there are free resources such as Google Drive.
  • It's had a positive impact in terms of being quick and easy whenever I want to store/access files.
  • It also was super useful to be able to use this on my phone. I'm able to access presentations on the go which helps me prepare for meetings.
This is about the same as Google Drive except I don't feel it's as organized or looks as nice as Google Drive does. It could do a lot more in terms of making it more visually pleasing and make it look more organize. It doesn't stack up to GitHub in the sense that it's not good for instant code sharing, which is what GitHub is really for (with its collaboration with SourceTree).
It is suitable all around for quick file storage. Not very useful for collaboration code projects. There are other software that's useful for that occasion.
