Fix iOS SpringBoard home screen crash
Authored by: keirthomas on Apr 19, '13 06:18:38AM

I totally agree, Kirk.

I use Pages on my Mac and on my iPad. I really want to be able to edit documents on both -- I want to work on my Mac, then grab my iPad and edit there instantly. The first problem I had was knowing if and when documents synced. Sometimes it would take a minute or two -- I'd open Pages, and 60 seconds later I'd see the "updating" animation appear. Unlike DropBox there's no status symbol alongside documents so I had no idea IF a doc had synced apart from guessing at the date.

Sometimes I messed up and began editing a document before the sync happened. Then Pages would complain I had two versions of the document. One thing Pages can't do is compare docs! So I had to save both the docs to my Mac's hard disk and use Microsoft Word to compare them. Crazy!

iCloud in Mountain Lion is Apple's second attempt at iCloud after it was introduced in Lion and it STILL doesn't work. I suspect that, like most old tech companies, Apple just can't do online services. I find this really hard to understand but there you go.

Right now to edit docs I use Google Docs via Chrome on my Mac, and the Google Drive app on my iPad. This works as it should but the editing features within Google Drive are extremely primitive. There's no Tab key, which is a real annoyance.

Although I do find useful things like Preview and TextEdit's iCloud storage. I can see the point there -- create something, then just close the app. It'll be there when you need it next and there even if your computer is reduced to cinders in a fire.
