How does the electron cloud model differ from the Bohr model?

The electron cloud (Schrodinger) model is the current model.

The electrons are in no set order or "orbit", but they can be predicted, though only to a particular uncertainty.

In the Bohr, an older model, the electrons are found in predictable amounts in set orbits. This model, though possessing some errors, still finds its uses today in its agreement with atomic line spectra.
