When I create a document in Pages on my iPad (using iOS 5) it automatically pushes it to the iCloud/iWork.  Where I can then open it on my laptop and edit it.

 

However, When I create a document in Pages on my laptop, it WON'T push to my iPad the same way.  Is there a reason iCloud only works going one direction?  I've even tried using the "Share" button to save directly to iWork/iCloud, but it still won't show up in my iPad.  (And going to www.icloud.com/iwork site on my iPad doesnt actually work, for some reason.)

 

(I am running OS Lion)

 

Explanation, please?


iPad 2, Other OS, iOS 5

    I am having the same problem. After updating, all my Pages documents vanished from Pages on both my iPad 2 and my iPod touch 4. I checked settings and saw my documents are stored on iCloud but I am unable to access them. Nothing works.

    The short answer is that the Mac part of the iCloud Documents in the Cloud service is not really working yet. We assume a future version of iWork for the Mac will include true integration.

     

    There are some workarounds.

    I am having the same issues with iCloud. It pushes the documents from iOS devices (running iOS 5) but not the other way round when you are updating in Mac. For that, I need to open iCloud.com in safari and then upload the file from local drive.

    Apple should integrate this feature with iWork suites so that we can work seamlessly on multiple devices (including Mac/PC) as can be found in iCal.

    I am having the same problem. Pages on my iPad and iCloud is just not communicating it is very frustrating.

    The problems mentioned in this discussion were solved when OS X 10.8 was released, along with updates to Pages.  If you are still in 10.7, that is the fix.  If you are in 10.8, I suggest you start a new discussion with more details about what you are doing and what is not working.
