Sorry to piggy-back on this thread, but I'd rather not create a new one for my similar question...
I'm just curious if I'm missing something with iCloud, but I can't see where it fits for me. I'm firmly a Gmail user (including contacts and calendar). I have an iPhone but no iPad, so don't need apps/data synced between any devices. I don't particularly care to upload my photos to a stream (I'd be fine with it, but ultimately I'd want them all backed up locally with all my other photos). I won't be using iTunes Match.
So, the only feature I can see that appeals to me is perhaps the automatic backups of apps/data. But, since I need to sync my music locally anyways, I still need to sync with iTunes, so is there a benefit for me? I guess there's a difference between syncing and backing up, and I've noticed my iPhone backups take up a decent amount of local space.
I guess I *think* I want to turn on iCloud but not without a reason
Thanks for any tips.

It's nothing earth shattering though if you're firmly a Gmail user and happy with your sync options there. It's just nice to have as an option.
