    I guess out of all of yesterday's announcements, the ones that interested me most were those related to iCloud and integration with ML and IOS 6. I am confused though - in the keynote they demonstrated ML Preview and it showed how you could put a PDF file in iCloud. But what do you use in IOS 6 to view that iCloud PDF file? Also, I haven't heard anything about integration of iCloud in ML Finder. Will I be able to access my iCloud files in Finder? I typically use Finder to launch Pages and Numbers as well as Preview. Hope someone has some answers to these two questions.

    Thanks. I had completely forgotten about iBooks. I use Readdle to read pdf's now. Too bad about no Finder integration. I guess this is part of Apple wanting us to think apps and not files.

    Is this confirmed, that iBooks will let us annotate and sync PDFs with Preview.app?

    I don't know that it is confirmed, but obviously if Apple is putting iCloud functionality in Preview, there has to be an IOS app that lets you view the files. iBooks is the only Apple app that lets you read PDF files.

    True enough, though they'd have to seriously improve the functionality of PDF manipulation in iBooks for it to work.

    My fear is that there'll be some features that are only for OSX-OSX, with iOS left behind (in the same way that OSX was left behind for a while with iWork docs)
