    Forgive me if there is another post on this-I checked, and did not see one.

    I am trying to weigh out the use of iCloud and whether it is something that I need. I understand some of icloud benefits from the posts here, but still have questions.

    If I use dropbox to sync pictures and photos from my apple devices to my PC--do I really need the cloud?

    I see that some of the clould service has been working when I buy an app for my ipad and than it wirelessly syncs the same thing to my ipod touch--that is cool and will continue that.

    If I don't use the cloud to back up photos, apps, docs, music---will I still need to continue backing up my devices with itunes on PC?

    I like to have everything on my ipad when I need it. I bought a 32 gb ipad which is plenty for me. I don't have any music on this device-that's why I have my ipod touch. Maybe have a few movies-but once I view, I will delete it so as to not take storage.

    I am concerned that if I have everything on the cloud and I am somewhere with no wifi service it would not be of benefit to me.

    Am I thinking right on this? :eek:

    Well it's free as long as you don't go over the 5GB limit (which as a bonus doesn't include music, etc which has been purchased from iTunes) so, what do you have to lose......just give it a go.
