    It seems to be possible now. With good reader (make sure it's the new one!!) I can transfer files to the iCloud section, evict them from the device so they are only on the cloud. Before I coulf not access on iCloud.com or pc, now both are there. So for doc storage it seems to be a good solution.

    Unsure if any other apps can do this? Apps like documents 5 can access drive and export to it but there is no way to evict a file which seems to be the key part.

    And either more or a separate storage bucket. They should have set it up so your photos get stored in a separate 5GB bucket instead of the main iCloud 5GB where regular backups are. Maybe I'm being greedy LOL..

    I have over 50GB on Dropbox for free though.
