I know it sounds stupid but it is simply user-friendly. The best thing about iCloud is that being PC-Free it truly defines the meaning of being wireless with mobile handset and being able to do everything right from the pocket anywhere and anytime.

To cut a long story short iCloud provides allows info and data to be updated online in the free 5GB of cloud storage provided upon signing up. Through iCloud one can store photos, calendar, documents, mail, settings and app data. Moreover music playlists and iTunes can be modified, uploaded and streamed through this hard drive in the sky. If you have any pirated version of song on iTunes then Apple will replace it with a genuine one.

PC Free further integrates native apps and functionality features available on the previous iOS 4. The following are the apps that receive added functionality.
