Can someone please make a feedback report to Apple for a checkbox that makes it so the app does NOT have to be open. That is just so stupid and moronic of Apple to take away the one reason icloud works so great all over the world for all of us. The reason - sync in the background directly without having to have an app open all the time.
True, like some sort of background refresh for the photos app. I reach home, My iOS devices connect to my wifi, and start updating themselves in the background. I would quite like that.
