8 Cool Cloud Tools For iPad

Your iPad was built for the cloud. Check out some surprising things the iPad and cloud can do together.

Apple's recent unveiling of its iTunes Radio music streaming service is tacit admission that cloud-based jukeboxes are the wave of the future, not its still-profitable iTunes business model of selling individual songs and albums. Ironically, Apple's well-stocked App Store has many cloud-based alternatives to iTunes, including Amazon Cloud Player, Pandora Radio, Rdio, Spotify and very soon Google Play Music All Access.

These apps might appeal to people pondering a switch to a non-Apple tablet. For instance, Microsoft said recently that an iTunes app for Windows 8 won't arrive "any time soon." This news poses a problem for iTunes aficionados switching from the iPad to a Windows RT slate. Why? Windows RT can't run traditional Windows desktop software, which means RT users can't use the iTunes for Windows program.
