You need iWork for iCloud? Sticking with Gdocs/Dropbox

    I'm amazed that you have to purchase iwork on the imac and then purchase the separate app for ios devices... This is beyond deceptive and greedy.. Why can't documents in the cloud work like dropbox and Gdocs, I dont want to be forced to buy iwork, I rather Microsoft Office. Will there be a fix for this? I really thought this whole icloud thing would work like dropbox, I guess not..

    It's only in iWork now, but the API is out there for other vendors to add iCloud support to their software.

    But I wouldn't hold my breath for Microsoft to add it.

    I don't see where on icloud.com you'd be able to access those documents.

    As far as I know, iCloud will only support syncing "Documents" between third party apps on different iOS devices.

    IMO that's totally useless.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again - they managed to make MobileMe look good.
