Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Cloud Drive

We use Amazon cloud drive to store and share content between members of the team. It acts a useful tool in conjunction with other systems to collaborate on projects and share.
  • App based auto sync and sorting of photos
  • Ease of use
  • Accessibility across multiple devices through the use of apps and browser support
  • Over simplistic at times - could have some more features
  • Possibly have the ability to lock documents to prevent further editing if using collaboratively/sharing
  • Internal document management has become much smoother
  • More secure than internal storage solutions
I use this product in conjunction with other products to store information. As a storage solution it performs as expected, it's use as a business application could be open to improvement mainly due to the lack of collaboration, lock off of files, etc. However, its photo storage is unparalleled in ease of use and visual display.
Trello, Google Analytics, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)
As a place to personally store photos and documents I cannot fault Amazon Cloud Drive. There are better tools out there for business use, but [there are] benefits from its simplicity to not do anything overly complicated.

Using Amazon Cloud Drive

The system is very easy to use and it's use of apps for almost all devices and hardware makes it even easier to manage and store photos and documents. I highly recommend this as an easy to use solution for novices!

  • Photo Sync - download an app and automatically store photos
  • Sharing documents
  • Locking documents for editing - impossible
Yes - The mobile interface is through the use of apps and is very easy to use. There are separate apps for photo storage and document storage each having their own set of features such as auto sync for photos and document previews, etc.
