CloudMe offers users better convenience with an online desktop. The desktop is available from any device or computer with an internet connection. File storage features allow users to upload files to CloudMe where they can be organized with dedicated folders for music, videos and photos. Calendar features are also available that allow users to share schedules and create separate calendars for school, work and more. Calendars can be viewed together with overlays for better scheduling control. MP3 files can be played through CloudMe and organized into play lists that can be shared with others. CloudMe users can also chat through the application and with MSN users while sharing files from their desk tops. There are many things that CloudMe can do to make life easier and more convenient.
CloudMe was created by Xcerion and launched in September of 2007. Xcerion was founded in 2001 and includes CTO Marcus Bristav, President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel Arthursson, and Vice President and CFO Jonas Thornholm. Today, Xcerion has offices in Stockholm and Seattle. CloudMe used to be iCloud, but changed its name after some differences with Apple.
CloudMe brings together many valuable features that can make life much easier for its users. Multiple calendars can be created to build separate schedules that can later be overlayed so the user can review their available time slots and commitments all at once. CloudMe also allows users to chat through their system or with MSN users. Files can be shared and many other general organizational tasks can be completed using CloudMe. The application provides a well rounded selection of functions that works in a private or professional environment.
The CloudMe website appears professional, with an eye-catching blue and black color scheme highlighted by hints of green and wispy white. Full color images provide a vibrant snap shot of CloudMe desk tops and the personalization available on the application. A list of clean navigational links can be found across the top of the homepage along with a drop down link that allows the user to switch between languages. Available languages include English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Taglog, Svenska, and many others.
The CloudMe sign up link may not be readily apparent to a new user. Just under the login fields in the top right hand corner is a small blue link that reads “Sign up” (beside the “forgot your password” link). Clicking this takes the user to CloudMe’s clean registration form. The clutter free form asks for a username, first and last name, gender, password, email address and optional public profile setting. After filling out the form the user can click the light blue “Sign up” button at the bottom of the form to complete registration. Loading the new account may take a while.
CloudMe users can create an account for free. There are no subscription requirements or other fees for signing up. The site does not list a premium paid membership, either. For now, users can access all features on CloudMe for free. The site also includes a small shop that sells tech items and account upgrades. Currently only one item is available for sale. Users can purchase an extra 100 GBs of storage space on CloudMe for around $40.
CloudMe is a helpful tool for almost anyone. Users can organize their personal life with MP3 play lists, activity and work calendars and more. Professional users can also use CloudMe to organize schedules and contact clients and business partners through MSN or CloudMe’s chat feature.
