Apple Announced iCloud Drive, Will Take On DropBox and Google Drive
At WWDC 2014, Apple has announced a new service, the iCloud Drive which very much similar to off Dropbox and Google Drive which we use today. It can be used to store your documents and all apps which you use on your device will be stored as a folder on iCloud Drive and you can access it via Finder.
All of your files will be sync across your OSX, iOS and Windows devices. If you are not using any iCould enabled Mac’s then you can just drop files in it so that it will be sync across all devices. Your apps can share files, which means you can access and work on the same file across multiple apps.
Once Apple’s co-founder Steve Jobs said to destroy Dropbox with iCloud, but at that time cloud storage wasn’t that big thing which is now. Apple fans will be happy with this feature but one thing which is not in favor of iCloud is its price, it much more costlier than Dropbox or Google Drive.
As Apple has launched iCloud for Windows too, it will be interesting to see is Apple opens up its iCloud API for mobile phone developers so that they can develop apps for Android too.
