Review: CloudMe creates a mobile desktop in the cloud for your iOS device

Store documents, music, videos, and more in the cloud from your iOS device.

CloudMe is a well-made cloud storage service for your iOS device that connects your documents, pictures, videos, and more with your computers for quick and easy access. While not offering substantially more storage than other services, the app is well designed and offers a number of features that are well-suited to the needs of a business professional backing up files to the cloud.

If you don't already have an account, you can create one for CloudMe directly in the app. It only takes a minute and you will be given a custom URL to access your account on a Web browser away from your device. The app then creates a virtual desktop where you can see folders with videos, images, documents, and more. Creating a new folder is easy and CloudMe is added to the menu for saving files from e-mail attachments and in other apps that support the save menu. Combined with automatic picture uploads, a built-in media player, and numerous syncing options, CloudMe is designed with mobile devices in mind. It works great, looks great, and operates at a high level when moving large volumes of files.

While it doesn't have the name recognition of other cloud storage services, and server speed was noticeably slower than some other alternatives (though not all), CloudMe's mobile platform is very well designed, and works quite well with both the iPhone and iPad to back up your important files for access on any other device you own.
