    I thought of something. Maybe some developers can make an app that uses Documents in the Cloud to sync an entire folder of the user's choice on their Mac or PC onto their iOS device in the background, useful for many different file types as well as having file management, open in... functionality, documents viewer, etc. (As usual). If any of you are developers making this kind of app, I sure would love to buy or download it and please tell me. So I would be able to view all my documents with them updated automatically instead of having to favorite Dropbox files one by one. Thanks! What do you think of the idea? Or am I talking nonsense? Or am I saying what was already an idea of yours (developers) out in the open? (I am not a developer, please forgive my ignorance). (And I am not sure this is the right forum to say this).

    Although i dont have good reader, they say its icloud enabled. And u can sync your documents with your mac if you go to your ~/library/mobile documents. I guess you can create shortcut for it in the Finder sidebar and u can drop any files to it and sync like dropbox!

    Anyone care to try? Otherwise i am also looking for icloud enabled app which syncs files with your Mac or PC.

    iCloud does have an API that allows these types of apps and I'm sure we will start to see them soon on both OS X and iOS.
