compare that to an android phone or a windows phone where there's nothing like it out of the box. a decent backup on android requires rooting.

I don't use iCloud for Documents, but I'm thrilled it syncs Contacts, Photos, Calendar, etc.,. Makes everything a breeze.

I like the IDE but I wish I could use it for more like saving games so I don't have to restart angry birds every time I get a new iPhone...

I am still learning about iCloud. I use it for Calendar, Contact, and documents for Pages and Keynote. I also use DropBox for storing pictures, small video clips, and documents.
That is OK to make fun of my poor english grammars just because you are bullying deaf people.

Use icloud constantly. Great for backups and live syncing of information. I often change something and go to do it within a few mins on computer and its already updated.

The let down with all ios devices and Apples current online services is file management and creation.

I like it but my problem with it is lack of access to what's in it. Every time anyone has a problem with their phone members here and geniuses tell you to restore as new. In that case what use is it?

I have a message bug from iOS 6 and I can't delete 1.7gb of message data out of the cloud without hacking the back up image. If Apple offered a way to just access that I could just delete them from my phone.

Better yet, let me TURN OFF message data from being saved to iCloud just like I can turn on/off everything else!

Oh well

Apart from the occasional quirky behaviour I'm pretty happy with it. I sync between iPhones, iPads and 2 Macs. My only really annoyance is notifications and badges not updating between devices.
