    iCloud doesn't appear to be in any of my apps. I can't save any Pages or Word documents to the cloud. Any ideas?

    From what I've seen so far, it's limited to the Apple iWork apps at the moment.

    Hopefully more to come soon...

    Open an app, such as Pages, on the Mac.

    Go to Save As, and then from the dialog box, drop down the "Where" and icloud should be one of the options.

    Make sure you have the latest update for iWork.

    I have "documents & data" ticked in my iCloud preferences. But iCloud is just not appearing in the finder, thats why its not a saving option on anything.

    I am however still using iWorks 08

    icloud doesnt appear in my Finder, which is somewhat of a disappointment

    but I think updating your iwork apps will solve your immediate problem

    iCloud does not show in the Finder. It will show as part of each individual app. Try opening TextEdit and see if you have it there. It requires iWork 09

    Ahh ok, that explains why its not working. Text edit works with iCloud alright.

    I'll have to think about updating iWorks to the new version of it. Would it work if I just purchased Pages 09 as an individual app from the appstore instead of getting the entire new iWorks package?

    Thanks for your help guys btw

    Preview and TextEdit have iCloud support built in. The only problem is there is no way to access these documents on mobile devices. A big oversight by Apple, in my opinion.

    The update to iWork enabled iCloud support on my boxed copy of iWork.
