I'm sure I'm missing something really obvious, but I have absolutely no idea how to upload files and music to iCloud. To answer the immediate questions:

-I have the most recent version of OS X

-I have the most recent version os iTunes

-I've set up iCloud in Sysem preferences, logged in and all, and everything seems to be fine.

I simply have to idea how to upload files or music. I'm sure it's something really simple, but I can't figure it out on my own. Please help!

Thanks,

Jellyfrank

    Hi.

     

    If you are in the UK, iTunes in the Cloud is only for your itunes store purchased music so far. iTunes match is US only for now until later in the year or possibly early 2012.. Or until the record companies in the UK are happy!

     

    Secondly, to move documents into the cloud, foot

     

    Http://www.icloud.com and log in.

     

    Select the documents button (far right) and then select the settings (cog wheel) in the top right hand corner. It brings down a drop box and you can add certain documents depending if you are on the 'pages/numbers/keynote' sections.

     

    Think of them as three folders...

     

    Pages tab accepts word, pages, PDF documents etc.. 

    Numbers tab accepts excel, numbers documents etc

    And Keynote tab accepts keynote, PowerPoint docs etc.

     

    More will "apparently" be available.. But it's not like an iDisk whee you can put anything you want in there.

     

    If you have an idisk and still wanna access it..

    Go to www.me.com and you can use it till 30 June 2012.

     

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the link, I had no idea how to get to the iCloud view. I don't see a gear icon, though, it just says to download iwork for ios.

    I went to www.icloud.com/#iwork did a drag and drop.

    To speed access to iCloud I added iCloud to the Bookmarks Bar. Then you can select from Mail, Contacts, Calendar, iWork or Find My iPhone.

    Also, like imanog said...just click the gear thing and select the file from your hard drive.

    Same here, there is no gear icon, no action icon, no nothing on the iWork portion of iCloud.  just adds to buy the iOS versions.  I konw there is no Mac-to-Mac syncing across iCloud (idiotic), but does this mean you can't even use it to STORE documents?  If so, 5GB seems like 1,000x too much splace, since only my email gets stored there.

     

    Am I missing something?

    iZap: I appreciate your link, but it looks nothing like anything I get from iCloud.  No gear, no image saying "No Spreadsheets [or anything else]".  Nothing even vaguely like the image you sent, except for the buttons that say "Learn More" and "Get [program] for iOS"....

    You must have an iOS5 device and also keynote,numbers and pages mobile versions ( all 3 make up the "iwork for iOS" suite  ). Once you have these apps, you can upload documents ( iwork09 and MS Office formats ) with Safari to www.icloud.com/iwork like this picture below.

     

    If you refuse to buy an iDevice or refuse to purchase the iwork mobile apps, then you only see advertising where the storage manager is supposed to be in icloud.com .

     

    Note that Mac Desktop iwork is not cloud-capable, therfore the mobile apps are needed. Cloud works only with iOS office file sync across multiple idevices, not from and to Mac. The Browser is the gap-filler ..

    So you are telling me that Apple close Mobile Me one of there best feature and product and one of the first to have that concept and I Cloud has less capability, when every is trying to go hardware free, I have been a Mobile me user for years, this is A.. backswords at all level, Icloud is a great idea but very minimalists compare to Mobile Me

    I am not happy about this either. I would have prferred to keep paying $99 a year and kept what I have. To me this is useless, especially since I use MS Office and have doucments I like backed up. For example a copy of my passport since I travel a lot internationally. SInce then I moved the an outlook.com emial. MS gave me a 25GB acoount, and Skydrive can be used on iOS, Android, WIndows, Mac (Mountain Lion) etc. I have found it to be the best, multi platform, etc. I have a dedicated folder to the skydrive on all my macs. I can upload anything. As a dihred mac fan, I cannot belive MS has one upped apple. check it out, and I hope you enjoy.
