    Hidden in the settings menu of the just-unveiled iOS 9, today it was found that iCloud Drive will be getting its own dedicated app experience with the newest iteration of iOS.

    The app, hidden by a "Show on Home Screen" command in the iCloud Drive section of settings, will allow users to interact and manage all of their saved files within iCloud inside of the app.

    The specific setting for turning on the hidden app lies in Settings > iCloud > iCloud Drive. Once users decide to turn on the "Show on Home Screen", the app will show up on their home screen alongside their previously downloaded apps.

    FINALLY!!! They should seriously turn this into a dropbox competitor. Dropbox pricing is ridiculous.

    And wonder why could they not deploy this simple implementation along with the launch of the iCloud Drive..

    Can they now put toggles in to allow people to turn off the other stock apps that they don't want? Seems like doing that would make a lot of people happy!

    Now just add a Windows folder sync client and this could compete with Dropbox. But not without it.

    As an aside, why are they hiding this and setting it not to show by default? /facepalm

    Well this could solve the whole lack of attachments (outside photos and videos) since iOS The Beginning.

    There is a iCloud drive sync client for Windows already.

    As for them not showing it by default, I'm assuming they believe this only appeals to 'power users' who would be able to find out about it themselves. a bit weird though

    They need a setting like this for most of the native apps

    Still don't get why Apple sometimes doesn't mention major features like this while spending an awful amount of time presenting things like the news app...

    A consolidated app handling all the different file types in iCloud Drive on iOS was one of the main discussion points lately.

    Massive
    This along with multi tasking makes the iPad more easy and effective to use

    very bad design and so annoying they seem have given in to all those morons who want an apple dropbox service.
    those services are wrong and Apple was already on the right track, what a shame.

    whoever things the future are 'folders' to organise your digital life can just as well go back to Windows 95.

    they just couldn't crack it.. yet?

    How do you currently sync files with your iOS device?

    I just put them all in a folder on the last page of all my apps but it would be nice to not have to do that
