Review: iClouDrive for Mac easily syncs files across all your Macs using iCloud

Store your important files and folders in one place on your computer and have them sync to your other devices.

iClouDrive for Mac restores the features of the now defunct MobileMe's iDisk, which allowed users to sync files from computer to computer. This app will be especially useful to users with multiple Macs.

Installation and setup were a snap and the app opened with a dialog box appearing, which explained how iClouDrive for Mac works, and let us know that we needed to enable Document & Data sharing in our iCloud preferences pane. Once we confirmed that this feature was enabled for our iCloud account, we continued on with the setup. Another dialog box appeared telling us that an iClouDrive folder was successfully created in our home folder, and that all documents stored there would be synced using iCloud. We then installed this application on another machine, using our same account. Finally, we dropped some files into the folder on Mac A, and within minutes they appeared on Mac B. We then deleted files off of one computer, and watched them disappear off the other just as quickly.

iClouDrive for Mac performs only one task, but it does it well. Users who work on multiple Macs would do well to take advantage of the free 5GB of iCloud storage using this application.
