What do you think of iCloud for document storage?
Authored by: jsk on Aug 14, '12 05:58:37PM

I think the question misunderstands what iCloud is for.

Services like Dropbox (which I use all the time) let you store your files online and access them from anywhere, on any machine. iCloud (which I can't use, my Mac isn't brand new) is NOT designed to do that. Its real purpose is to sync the file you're working on to your (and only your) devices. And only those devices that are logged into your account. File sharing is pretty much a non-starter.

Useful for keeping your iPhone or iPad up to date, but pretty much worthless otherwise.

It sure beats the iTunes way of sync'ing everything!
