What do you think of iCloud for document storage?
Authored by: robleach on Aug 14, '12 08:42:45AM

iCloud Document storage... It's a solution without a problem. I suppose if you want an alternative to google docs, it's good, but I think most people see this as either a replacement of iDisk or an alternative to google docs and will judge it that way. In that light, it pales. It's too limited and I think people would be afraid to convert to using it for fear that non-mac people wouldn't be able to collaborate on document editing (despite the fact it may be able to do that). It can't do image file, website files, etc.. Plus, you have to pay for the software to use it. I paid for MobileMe and was more than satisfied. I could keep any document on there. As soon as iDisk went away, I started using Dropbox and I continue to use google docs. I don't see any reason to use iCloud document storage, especially since it will likely eventually be discontinued and I'd be stuck with a mess on my hands and a mad scramble to figure out a replacement. With the advent of Lion and the removal of tons of features I used every day and the elimination of MobileMe and the features that went away with that, I've started to become very cynical of Apple and trying to diversify my software reliance so I don't get burned so bad like that anymore. So I will shy away from iCloud document storage.
