    Do gift cards allow for recurring charges? I wasn't aware they had that capability...or does it just apply it to the Apple ID, and pull from the applied iTunes gift card balance first before charging CC on file? I've never actually bought an iTunes gift card before in my life, LOL!

    Any charge of any kind will pull from a balance on your AppleID before it taps a CC on file... so yes, recurring charges will tap the available balance...

    Good to know. I was always curious about how people were paying for recurring charge stuff with no CC or debit card on file (IE: my nephews when they were younger). Now it makes sense...

    It is when companies like Mega and ADrive offer 50GB for free and Firedrive offers 20GB for free.

    Apple's pricing is a bit... High compared to what you get from other competitors. OneDrive gives you 30GB for free. Google gives you 15GB on Drive.

    Flickr is the best place, IMO. You have 1TB and with their newly refreshed Apps and Website, it's kind of amazing. You can just have the Auto Uploadr set up on your Mac to upload from your Photos Library and it will get everything and skip duplicates. Then, when your 5GB gets full you just go into your Photos Library and clean it out. Pretty spiffy solution, IMO.

    It's what I plan on doing. I had the 200GB iCloud Plan, but I downgraded it to the Free 5GB plan.

    The Flickr iOS app is really really good now, too, and has non-destructive Ediitng like Photos. Really the only thing iCloud Photo has that's good, comparatively speaking, is a thick client desktop App (and that doesn't even matter if you use something like Lightroom).

    FWIW all of those mentioned cloud services offer auto back-up of photos as well ...
    Now saying that I still pony up 99 for the extra 20GB's for the wife and I (actually $1.98 if you want to get technical)...

    Does Flickr have a file size limit? Dropbox does not, but others do.

    I try to keep my free 5 gb in iCloud for my current phone back up. For storage of photos, videos, gifs, png images, Documents, and notes, I use Box, Dropbox and OneDrive. The larger videos go in Dropbox because there's no file size limit. Between the 3, I have 83 gb of storage. That will last me a long time. And then there's Google Drive which I have but don't yet use. I don't know much about Flickr. [ Goes to Google Flickr]

    1. By using Microsoft OneNote, which is free for Windows, OS X, Windows Phone, iOS, Android, and Web @ Outlook.com

    2. You don't, you create Notebooks in OneNote.

    3. See #2. You then Create Section Groups, Sections, Pages, etc. in those Notebooks for your Notes.

    To the person above regarding File Limitations. The only File Limitation worth considering with Flickr is the Video Limit. 3 Minutes @ 1080p resolution. Flickr is, at heart, a Photography services, not a YouTube or DailyMotion replacement ;-)

    I do that in Box. I create the note in the Box app. It's a Box feature I like and use.

    Yeah, they do. But the problem I have with iCloud Photo Library or an app is they will use your free 5 gb of storage that I use to back up what is currently on my phone. If I back up and use iCloud Photo Library or their app, I would need to buy more storage from Apple. That's what they hope you'll do. The way it is, I have 83 gb of free storage with another 15 gb with Google Drive. I'm a tightwad.
