So I was wondering how you manage your digital life and having things connect with each other?

Like being on Apple it's simple, you have your productivity apps, online synching and all that under one account. But I have a MacBook Pro, Android phone and a Windows tablet, so how to I get as seamless experience?

What I use the most is Pages and Photos on Mac and mostly I just want them to be on my other devices also. So I'm thinking going more with Google, like use google docs and photos but I don't really like them not having desktop apps.

What echo-systems do you use on which platforms?

use Office365 instead - they have apps that run on everything :)
I looked into it! But! There is no photos app really, not like both apple and google has and office isn't as much tied to other services if you don't use hotmail. Easiest would be if I just bought an iPhone haha, but I'm so disappointed with Apple since awhile so will wait till they get their shit together. My OnePlus 3 is old but is still way more compatible with my MacBook than even the newest iPhone.XD (mostly because of type-c)

Since photos and documents are in the cloud I don't see what the benefits to have desktop apps are. Google is probably the best option. I don't know what Apple has to offer
I have seem other services that uses Google Drive to store files. So there is a benefit to use Google to store files online

Mostly it's offline use and an app is usually nicer to use than a website. But yeah I'm leaning towards going Google. Looking at that Google one thing and have 200gb storage.
