The Cloud
Submitted by Cellcom
Consider the number of internet-connected devices you access on a daily basis? Smartphones, laptops, tablets, desktops, e-readers and more - Americans own an average of four digital devices. Accessing photos, documents, and music across these devices is easier than ever thanks to the cloud. The cloud is an elusive topic for some people, but chances are you’re already using it.
The cloud refers to information being stored on servers accessed via the Internet, rather than solely on a particular device. Consider your email – you may have the option to login to a website, use an app on your phone or have it synced with a desktop application. You can easily access it across many devices because the information is stored on a server, not on your device.
The same concept can be easily applied to documents and photos via services like Dropbox, Google Drive, Box and Microsoft OneDrive. By uploading your files to a cloud service you can access them anywhere and collaborate easier than ever. These apps offer varying amounts of free storage at sign-up and have plans to add more storage as needed. There are also apps designed to sync specific tools across devices. For example, Evernote lets you sync to-do lists and notes and Spotify lets you listen to your favorite music.
Besides convenience, the cloud should be utilized to back up things like photos and contacts on your smartphone. By regularly syncing your device, you won’t need to worry about losing important contacts or priceless photos if your device is lost, stolen or damaged. Apple and Android offer ways to sync your contacts, photos, apps and more. You can also explore some the apps already mentioned for additional options.
