 How to setup iDrive on iPhone

Apple’s iCloud has iPhone pretty well backed up: Photos magically appear on to several Photo Stream devices (including my desktop Windows PC), music is available in iTunes wherever we are, and the phone’s settings and apps are also backed up. But videos aren’t covered by iCloud, sharing options are limited, it doesn’t give you precise control over all your backed-up files, and there’s just no single place where we can get to everything we have stored in the cloud that is why we set up iDrive on iPhone and iPad (free for 5GB, $49.50 a year for 150GB), which addresses each one of these concerns and more.

Before you set up iDrive on iPhone and iPad you can also check on iTunes IDrive is also available on the iTunes App Store, and there are also Windows, Mac, Android, and Windows Phone clients. You get 5GB of storage free, and a very reasonable $49.50 per year gets you a full 150GB. (With Google Drive you’d pay $59.88 for just 100GB, SkyDrive offers 125GB for $50, and SugarSync costs far more at $99.99 a year for 100GB) The IDrive app is a small 11MB download that refreshingly doesn’t ask for your location or pesters you with yet more notifications.

To get an account, you’ll need an email address and a password. But sometimes we found the flaws at the point. We should deviously try using a simple 4-character password, in fact, a common name, and IDrive had no problem creating an account with this. Even Yahoo Mail won’t let you create an account with such a weak password, so we recommend that a service designed for securely storing your sensitive data enforce stronger passwords.

Its a great thing over Apple’s that they built-in iCloud Photo Stream backup. You can specify that all the photos clicked with the device get automatically synchronize to IDrive Photo Stream, its an advantage to pick which pictures you want to be upload. And surprisingly, SugarSync, a previous Editors’ Choice, can’t even back up your contacts and calendar entries, not to mention your videos.

We never need to backup photos clicked on my iPhone or iPad anymore, since  Apple has iCloud’s which included Photo Stream. The Apple I icloud gives the back up our music, photos, contacts, and documents.
