Easy to use, with smooth file syncing, but still not the best storage for business use

Overall Satisfaction with Apple iCloud

In my organization, we have flexibility to work from different locations. We have many employees working from home. Employees have their individual accounts. They have their own storage where they can keep documents for their projects.
  • Made it easier to work from home
  • Modest price
  • Being able to access documents and contacts across any device
  • Can be be slow
  • No purely business version created
  • For Apple Users (not the best tool for Windows Users)
  • Increased efficiency
  • Makes doing business faster
  • Cut down on risk (by having the backup of the files, projects created)
Good price for Dropbox, which currently offers 1 TeraByte (TB) for $10 a month. The cons of Dropbox is that the folders cannot be uploaded directly via the Web ap. When it comes to Apple iCloud, I definitely prefer the easy to use interface over Dropbox.
It works great if you are an Apple devices user. In our company, developers who are working on Macs, are finding it really useful. When it comes to Windows users, probably, there are better cloud storages.

Using Apple iCloud

Its a good tool, which still needs some development.
I think icloud should work on making it easier to share the files between all devices, not only 'Apple universe'.
There are a lot competitors on the market at the moment, like Dropbox, Google Drive, or OwnDrive, which offers more options at the moment, so i hope Apple will take it into consideration.
