iCloud.com wins web app Photos and new background image

Along with the launch of iOS 8.1, Apple today also implemented some news in the iCloud.com.

The first one is quite visible: a new background image. It is worth noting that this same image is available on iPads and iPhones / iPods touch running iOS 7 minimally.

Another new feature is the Photos web app (Photos). For it to appear, however, I need the user to enable the iCloud Photo Library feature (iCloud Photo Library) in Photos and Camera Settings, on iOS 8.1. It is good to keep in mind that the feature is still in testing (beta), so problems can happen.

When you activate it, your entire photo library will be taken to the cloud and available on all your devices, in addition to iCloud.com.

There, the user can browse all the photos (either by “Moments” or “albums”).

By clicking on a possible to mark it as a favorite, download or delete the file once and for all remembering that, when you do this, the deleted image from your library and will no longer appear on any device. Let's hope the web app evolves and, one day, allow some kind of online editing (even if it's basic things).
