    the sync process from iphone to icloud stores the documents in your Mac in a hidden location :

     

    ~/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~pages/Documents

     

    If you use Pages for Mac  to save your files there, it will be instantly show up on icloud.com and also on your iOS5 pages.

     

    Each iCloud enabled app on iOS5 has a folder in "Mobile Documents" like com~apple~numbers , com~apple~keynote..

    But this does not make any sense at all? Apple cant have "overlooked" that there are Macs out there? iCloud is not a cloud service at all I realize now after trying for several days get it to work. At its best, it sync files between iPhone and iPad....

    Well, this is horribly crappy and it really is a huge letdown, because I was really looking forward to being able to work on documents in iCloud from my Mac and ditch Dropbox + GoodReader once and for ever.

     

    I will have to keep using them, unless Apple realizes that there is a world beyond iOS and there are many people who create Keynote Documents (in my case) on a Mac because it is easier and more powerful. I am glad I was not using iDisk because if this handicapped iCloud is what is going to replace it, then it can go the way it came for all I care, because I am not going to use it for my files.

     

    Really, Apple, just update iWork for Mac and make it work with iCloud. Right now, it can only update to iWork, and it is not even the iWork that is within the web iCloud interface. It's absolutely preposterous and it makes no sense.

    I have been unable to drag and drop files into iCloud using Safari.  I checked my Library, and my Mobile Documents folder is empty.  Any thoughts?

     

    Cheers!

    Did it ever occur to you that direct integration with iWork on the Mac was in Apple's plan all along, but the required updates simply weren't ready in time for the launch of iCloud last week?

     

    Delaying the launch of iCloud to wait would've meant delaying the launch of the iPhone 4S, which would no doubt have had a much bigger knock-on effect than just releasing Mac iWork updates whenever they are ready.

    Never mind.  I figured it out.  You have to create a document on your iDevice first, then the upload option becomes available in Safari.

     

    Cheers!

    I really hope so ! But, nevertheless, why all the fanfare if it is not working on the Mac yet? I really hope you are right

     

    Also:

     

    Phil: I managed to drag and drop using Firefox. I have not tried it on Safary but it works on mozilla's browser

    Julian, I hope you are right about the required updates for iWork on the Mac not being ready. And I also hope that they are working on it at present. But it wouldn't have hurt if they had clarified that point when they launced iCloud. It certainly would have been appreciated and saved all this confusion and heartache to the iCloud users. Perhaps Apple figured that this situation would hurt their business less than making a public announcement about it at the time of iCloud launch.

    Avatar, iDisk is still around. It is enabled at Finder > Preferences > Sidebar. At least on my sevaral Macs there are, with contents intact.

  • MrTrue Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    But why not communicate to customer this? Actually you start to get tired of all this miscommuncation, and the only timeyou hear something its on the annual mega hyped launches. Its impossible run professional operations and planning with this kind of communication.

     

    Do you have a link to this planning? Or you only know as you work for Apple?

  • babsbunny1909 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I don't have one of those files.... in my library

  • AvatarAustin Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I just realized my Mac doesn't have the latest version of iWork. If I upgrade would iCloud work?

  • johnfitz Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Tommy IDISK is not available on my mac, and accessing me.com only opens the find your iphone app. Ironically mobile me is still accessible from my windows computer but I can not upload anything to it, and for the record my mobile me is a paid up account, that i can not access in any shape or form.

     

    It seems like icloud and ios5 can not distinguish between itunes ID and paid up me.com email, and it makes you set up a new me.com email and then uses that to access everything except Itunes. Its a complete mess.

     

    I still have my data on a windows machine, but Lion and ios5 calendars, contacts email, and bookmarks, are a complete mess.

     

    I hope nobody loses valuable data attempting to migrate everything to Icloud.

     

    Apple should just fix it, or cancel it, its dangerous to valauble data at this stage.

  • Tommy Peters Level 1 Level 1 (40 points)

    You're right John. I can't upload new content but previous content is readable. 

  • xjoshua Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    @johnfitz

     

    when you access icloud.com, click on the little cloud button on the left and you will access to other iCloud Apps
