    First, I need to say that I'm so pleased that Apple finally included an iCloud Drive app within iOS. I have been wanting to use iCloud Drive this way since it was introduced last year. I have basically all of my photos, documents, pdf's, etc backed up on iCloud Drive in just various labeled folders. Being able to now access them and view them from within an app on my iPhone is terrific.

    All of my files are synced up in iCloud Drive on my rMBP but they are not all synced on my iPhone. What I mean is, some of the pictures I click on in the various folders are viewable immediately and others need to download first.

    1) Why is that?
    2) How can I force all of the photos to just download without me having to click each photo?
    3) Does this mean the documents, pdf's and photos are actually downloaded onto my iPhone?
    4) Dumb iCloud Drive question: are the files still stored on my rMBP?

    I too have a question. Can you upload folders from Yosemite to icloud drive?? You can't in mavericks and am wondering if this feature has been added.
