Free cloud storage is all the rage. If you want to upload a school or work document, or share a simple family photo album, there’s no need to spend money on an expensive paid service. Most people don’t need terabytes of storage to sync and share files. Many cloud services can fit your needs, with a cost of zero.
Backing up your data is important for any iPhone user. This can be done using iTunes and iCloud. iTunes handles the local backups, and iCloud handles the cloud backups. However, not everyone wants to use iCloud, due to concerns about the privacy of data stored on Apple’s servers. It can also be easier to use the same service to back up iOS devices that you use to back up desktop computers, and iCloud doesn’t support Linux or Android.
CloudMe is a European cloud service whose main claim to fame is being protected by Sweden’s strict privacy laws. The service was originally established by the Swedish company Xcerion as iCloud.com, combining the company’s cloud desktop service with a cloud file storage service. In 2011, Apple bought the trademark, and the service was split in two as CloudTop and CloudMe.
