To say that many Maximum PC readers and staffers have a hate on for Apple would be an understatement. They hate the hype. They despise the rabid fanboyism. They shudder in a seething rage at the thought of paying the Apple tax for any of their hardware. That said, there’s also a lot of PC users who, despite their undying affection for Windows-powered rigs, own an iPhone or an iPad and still manage to look at themselves in the mirror every morning. It’s for these braves souls that we recommend iCloud, our Browser Extension of the Week.
As any iOS Device user will tell you, your purchase of an Apple product comes along with a free iCloud account that provides a number of services including email, a calendar, address book and Find my Device and document storage--all of which can be accessed from any web-connected iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or web browser. The iCloud extension for Chrome is elegant enough that you’d never know.
After installing it to your browser, users need only click the iCloud icon to open it, and then select what service they want to access. Simple, easy to use and to the point, this is a no BS extension designed to make the life of iCloud users easier--a feat it easily achieves.
Be sure to check back with us every Thursday for another edition of Maximum PC’s Browser Extension of the Week.
