    Dear all,

    My iPhone got destroyed. Among other problems, I need to recover text files I had there, supposedly stored in iCloud.

    The app I used is plaintext (version 1).

    Can anyone help me please?

    thanks
    Luis

    Some more info on the issue:

    -- I already went to iCloud.com, and the app "plaintext" is not in the list there
    -- I go to iCloud.com and then to iCloud Drive, and plaintext is not there either

    -- when I go to System Preferences--> iCloud and then choose "manage" the app plaintext is there, but all I can do is delete documents and data, it seems I cannot access them first

    -- finally, I wonder if I borrow an iPhone, insert my SIM card and log in with my apple-Id, would I be able to access my documents and e-mail them to me?

    thanks for your help
    Luis
