Apple Wins Cloud Media Usage
I was recently shopping for a new cell phone and explained that I wanted to stay with the android system. The salesperson asked, Are you using the cloud? Huh? Guess not!
He went on to explain that by using the cloud I could sync my music, books or videos on all my devices at once. Hmmm, I like that idea! If I enter an appointment for the dentist while at their office, my cloud will make sure all my devices make note of that appointment. I no longer have to go home and enter it on the calendar. SWEET!
According Strategy Analytics the 2,285 internet users were surveyed in October 2012. 27% used Apple’s services. 17 % used Dropbox, although they have no associated content ecosystem. Amazon’s Cloud Drive came in at 15%.
Looking to the future, cloud services is expected to growth exponentially Currently, however, barely 45% of the respondents indicated that used any cloud service to store their media.
Today’s chart from Statista ranks popular cloud media services by their reach among American internet users.
