    For the time being, don't even bother trying to get the MBP to sync documents. It doesn't /can't do it, even with the latest OSX update.

     

    However, it's my understanding that, if you don't upgrade your OS, you won't be able to get  Mountain Lion and it's iCloud ability. Search iCloud and Mountain Lion - there is a lot of information about this out there right now as Apple gives out free updates so everyone can get Mountain Lion.

    Over 32000 views presumably because of the failure of apple products to all sync: macs and iOS devices. Will this result in a decision by Apple to respond?

    Apple actually has responded by incorporating this feature into Mountain Lion.  Apple's failure is not so much in not having this feature ready to go for Lion but in misleading us into believing that it would be a part of the original roll out of iCloud when it was not.

    I just went thru the apple site about Mtn Lion. It has the same 'propaganda' as Lion had. How do we KNOW Mtn Lion will actually do what was promised. That is sync documents between all my Macs and allow syncing of documents created on Macs, not just those created on mobile devices. Also how about documents created on Keynote?

    Very, Very dissapointing.  I had an iPad and I recently converted to a MacBook Pro because I believed people when they said that Apple products integrate well.

     

    I also bought numbers on both my iPad and Mac just to find out they don't do exactly what they said they would do. 

     

    Apparently Apple expects all of their users to understand that when they says the Mac version of Numbers "integrates with iCloud," they mean "you can download a file from the internet and edit it.  You can then re-upload it (maybe) to be used on your other devices."

     

    I hope some Apple employees are embarassed by this.

    I am using mountain lion right now and just tried to save a document in pages but there was no icloud option, i had to upload it using the web option and there is some iwork beta thing u can use the web as well for sharing... Still not incoropating the icloud into the desktop versions, i did notice in text edit there is a direct icloud save feature, however, i dont know of a textedit app available on an iOs device... And no, im not talking about notes, i know that usies an icloud like function already and that works well too, but its pages and the other iwork apps we would like to work with the icloud feature they say is available...anyways, i am just using a developer preview of mountain lion so maybe in the final release they will incorpoate that feature, however, i just dont see it happening... also, i think its more of a PAGES feature that needs to be added, not mountain lion... we shall see in the next coming days/months...

    Well, having bought my iPad I installed Mountain Lion on my Mac and it makes no difference at all. Syncing still not working with iWork docs - for me at least - and I hate the Lion operating system. It is supposed to save changes automatically in pages, for example, but so often I have lost those changes altogether. And you can't do a 'save to' any more, only a duplicate which is much more fiddly.

    TownMouse33 and wattabing, are you actually using Mountain Lion (10.8)? It's not officially out until later this month. The current version, Lion (10.7) doesn't claim to sync iWork files.

    Oh dear! No I haven't got Mountain Lion. How confusing. I must have assumed Lion was just shorthand for Mountain Lion! But I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that I had to install Lion on the Mac before it would work at all. Do you think Mountain Lion will solve the syncing problem, then? And will I be able to upgrade for free?

    yes i am using mountain lion and like the other post say, the icloud featuires are not working the way we wpould all like them to be working... I guess they will eventually work this way, but it doesnt seem like it will work because of mountain lion, i think we will need an iwork update, each individual program will need to update and include an icloud saving feature and a way to access the files through icloud seamlessly, not through a website or some other workaround, we just want it to be there, like adcertised...

    Oh - what a pity. It is a scam, really. I don't know how they can promote iCloud the way they do when this very basic feature doesn't work. But thanks for your help - its nice to know I'm not alone with the problem!

    Well, TownMouse33, the feature works fine between my iPhone and my iPad, for whatever that's worth. They have announced better integration when Mountain Lion is released later this month. As wattabing mentioned, they may also have to update the Mac side of the iWork apps.

     

    wattabing, if you are running the beta of Mountain Lion, I don't think you are supposed to be discussing it in an open forum like this.

    Well then, it does look as I if the problem is syncing between MacBook and iPad. Most annoying as for me that's a really important feature but one that doesn't work very smoothly. Oh dear. Back to the drawing board . . . Thanks for your help and informative comments.

    iCloud Document Library

    The iCloud Document Library is a convenient, consistent way to access your iCloud documents across all your Mac computers and iOS devices. To find an iCloud document, just open its app. The iCloud Document Library shows your iCloud documents for the app with the most recent one at the top.

     

    So I guess with the final Mountain Lion it will work!
