New poll: What do you think of iCloud for document storage?
Authored by: Jwink3101 on Aug 14, '12 10:32:22AM

I understand Apple is trying to move away from the file-system type interface but that doesn't work here. For example, lets say I am working on a big project with text documents/notes, spreadsheets, presentations, audio recordings, etc. I would keep them all in one folder since they are all related. However, there is only a weak notion of folders in iCloud and, since the documents are tied to the program, there is no way to interconnect the folders between applications.

I know I am geekier than the average user, but do they really find the file system that confusing? And if they do, this is still a pretty poor way to move away from it.

No kidding. Back in the day, Apple was the champion of the document-centric approach to computing. Now it's all about the app.
