3 Missing Cloud Implementations In Mobile Technology

I like the mobile technology that surrounds us. I’ve gotten to the point where I wouldn’t function to the same level without my phone, and I don’t even think that’s a bad thing – hey, if a couple of years ago we could have carried our desktop PCs around with us, I bet everybody would’ve jumped at the opportunity. In previous articles, I have talked about how much the mobile industry has advanced by implementing cloud computing. While this is definitely true, it’s still quite a long way from being perfect. Here’s what is left to be introduced, in my opinion:

Backing up app data. In the past few months I went through a couple of Android phones. Unlike the older iPhones, where you had to manually install every app on your phone after going through a software update or switching your phone, this time it was a lot easier: I just had to sign in with my Google account and the apps I had on the previous installation started to pour in from the cloud. The only way I would improve on this would be if all of my app data synced as well – and apps have started to do this by syncing your account with the cloud. However, we’re not there yet, and for a ton of apps you simply lose all of your data.

A proper file management system. And I’m not talking about the files on your phone. I want the stuff from Minority Report, a system where you just “throw” files from one screen to the other. This point is beginning to be true, though, as there are some apps that are already available which kind of do this. But I’d like a more in-depth implementation into the software!

Better yet, better PC integration. And I don’t mean just file management. I’m waiting for a time when your phone will become an extension of your computer, a unified solution which makes your mobile gadget a small extension of your display. This would be easily achievable with cloud computing, and it would make life so easy – got to go somewhere? Grab your phone and don’t even stop what you’re doing on your computer.

Basically, what I’m trying to say is this: we’ve come very far until now in terms of mobile computing, and most of that progress has been due to the cloud. In my opinion, we’re just three steps away from living the way ‘80s and ‘90s Sci-Fi envisioned us, and I think we only need a bit more time to get there.
