iCloud: It’s a little buggy, but it can really happen.
Apple is known for keeping Android users out of its “fenced garden”. The company has only a few official apps in the Google Play store: Beats, Apple Music, Apple TV, Tracker Detect, and Move to iOS. However, Android users can still take advantage of a few iCloud services without a mobile browser. It’s not a flawless experience, but here’s how you can use Cloud on Android smartphones.

How to use Android Cloud

Using iCloud on your Android device is very easy. All you have to do is go to, or enter your existing Apple ID details or create a new account, and voila, you can now access iCloud on your Android smartphone.

From here, you should see shortcuts for iCloud web applications available, including Email, Photos, Cloud Drive, Notes, and Find iPhone. You can also manage your iCloud account by going to Account Settings. Here, you can also see how much storage you have available on one website that is easy to navigate.

What can you do and not be able to do?

In my experiment, its performance on Android was a bit shoddy. In theory, you should be able to access all of the above mentioned web applications as you would in any desktop browser. Unfortunately, that was not the case with me.

The keyboard will quickly disappear from the notes application after it appears, so I could not type anything, and Reminders will not appear as an option.
On the other hand, I was able to view, upload, download, and share photos from it for good. Collecting photos into albums also worked seamlessly, and I was able to easily hide and expose images.

Get an iPhone and it works perfectly.
All in all, there is still much to gather, but it is a good start. If you are using an Android device next to your Mac, iPad, or iPhone and want to take advantage of Apple’s iCloud services, this is your best shot for the foreseeable future. We do not see Apple upgrading to the traditional Android app. Anyway, hopefully it will expand on this iCloud mobile web experience to create more complete user experience – and much less.
