Loom is a new service that lets you store any photos or videos in order to free up precious storage space on your iPhone or iPad. The best part is that you've then got one unified library that's accessible across all your devices. Loom is available for both iOS and OS X.
If you don't live in the United States but make use of Apple's online storage system, iCloud, US authorities could technically obtain and view your information without your consent. Actually, this doesn't just affect iCloud, but any cloud storage service such as Dropbox, Google Drive, and any other service that is based in the United States.
