Probably you already know what cloud storage can make your day easier or maybe you still do not have a better picture how this web service play an important role in your everyday life. I will share with you my little experience for cloud storage.
My wife bought me an IPhone5 for my birthday present and I was like “Thanks dear, I love it !” The first thing I do is take a few pictures and load the phone with few songs from iTunes. When I check through the settings, there is a iCloud service. This is how I begin to dig deeper, how the cloud storage works.
With Apple single sign on ID, I can access my pictures and songs from my MacBook, iPod or iPad. I can access my important document from anywhere I go. The experience was so cool when I first use iCloud service, although I didn’t know what’s going on behind the device. If you own an Apple device, perhaps you already one of the member among the cloud community without you notice it. Go to apple.com/icloud to learn more about cloud storage.
iCloud by far is the most convenient way to share your photos and videos. You can share to the exact people you want them to see. Just create a shared album and invite them to add their photos and videos. This group can comment on the photos and videos. Everyone in the group can access the shared album from any apple device at any time.
