I am creating text documents on my Mac using TextEdit, then pushing them to the iCloud.  Since there is no TextEdit on my iPhone, I was hoping Pages would be aware of my docs. Guess what, it isn't. (Pages to pages works fine). 

 

Am I doing something wrong or this is yet another stupid iOS/iCloud thing? 

 

I do not want to use Pages, as I want my docs to automatically be plain text, not convert or export, etc.

 

I am also aware I can use Dropbox and many other 3rd party apps to push any file I want to iDevices and back, but why should bother?  Apple should do it the right way. This entire iOS/iCloud paradigm that you don't have access to files, only "documents" and have to do something complicated to share docs across apps is the stupidest idea ever

 

 

Thanks in advance.
