It might feel like your cloud, but the people behind it make all the difference
This week is all about the cloud and how mobile users like you and me use it, abuse it, love it and hate it. Yes, it's possible to do all these things at the same time. The "Cloud" means different things to different people at different times. Maybe you use Google Drive or Office 360 for document collaboration — that's the cloud. Maybe you use Evernote to store the things that you need to keep track of to make life easy — that's the cloud, too. So are you game saves in iCloud, or your Movies you bought from Samsung or HTC, or the music you stream from Google. The cloud is complicated.
Because things can be so complicated, some cloud service providers are better at things than others. It's hard to get the technical details just right, then add forward facing things so that users feel comfortable. Google's working on that with CARDS CARDS CARDS everywhere, Apple is revamping their look and feel, taking away some of that rich Corinthian leather look, and newcomers like Samsung and HTC are just beginning to find their stride. It's good that things stay fluid, and hopefully each iteration is better than the next.
But everyone has a favorite. It's human nature to have preferences, and even if you're like us here at Android Central and Mobile Nations as a whole and use multiple cloud service providers, you still think one company does it better. Tell us in this week's poll. You'll find it in the sidebar to the right, or embedded after the break.
Before we leave, a quick look at last week's results.
It looks like Android Central readers favor the HTC One, with the yet-to-be-announced phones like the next Nexus or the Note 3 coming in a close second. Good thing every choice was a great one, right?
