Verizon Cloud comes to iOS, 500 MB for free
The Verizon Cloud application which was released in beta for Android last month has now been published to the Apple App Store as well, enabling iOS users to take advantage of Verizon's Cloud-based services.

On Android, Verizon Cloud allows you to sync a bunch of things like contacts, messages, logs, documents, music and video. However, on iOS, it will be a bit more limited because it won't allow you to sync your contacts, text messages and call logs. Everything else should work just as well. The service comes with 500 MB for free, though if you're really into it, you can upgrade to 25GB ($2.99 a month) or even 125GB ($9.99 a month).

Of course, Verizon Cloud doesn't bring anything new to the table, as users already have access to a number of other services that do the same thing and are even more versatile. Still, you can download Verizon Cloud for iOS by visiting the source link below!

^This. Your better off using a different cloud storage solution, at least then you'll get more than half a GB. I have a little system of putting my media in Dropbox, pictures in Skydrive, and my files (docs, pdfs, etc) in Google Drive. Right there that's more than 24GB of free space (2 for dropbox [not including referals], 7 for skydrive[though, some got grandfathered into 25GB, and 15 for Google Drive). Hell, there's a ton of ways to get more storage than what Verizon is offering. Even new comers into the game like Copy are offering 15GB's free (with 5GB for each referral, link for those who want to try it [https://copy.com?r=GNIwOD ]). TBH, it seems to me, Verizon doesn't even care about being competitive in there offerings.

iCloud gives users 5gb free. This a palsy amount from Verizon.

Unless the amount is having muscular tremors, you meant paltry.

So, you're admitting you have an Android tablet? Oh, my bad. It was your friend's...right.

Pointless. You can do the same with iCloud or other Android based services with more storage capacity. Another way for Verizon to stuff a self branded crapware app on phones to collect more usage data from it's customers.

Hey Verizon, why don't you keep your cloudy cloud, and we'll stick with Skydrive and Google.
