What do you think of iCloud for document storage?
Authored by: robogobo on Aug 15, '12 03:40:30PM

The solution for iCloud and document storage in OS X is very simple, and already exists in Aperture. Aperture has two methods of dealing with files, managed and referenced. Inside the application, you don't see the difference. It works pretty much the same way with each method. But under the hood, you either allow the app to manage the files inside a library, or you manage them yourself, and the app references them. That means the user decides how to store the files, and the app keeps track of their location. Best of both worlds. Apply this model to the whole of OS X and all the problems go away.
