    Prior to iOS8 being released I noticed several entries for old iOS apps (that I'd deleted long ago) were being displayed in Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup. When I tried to delete these entries I was unable to. Now, I've updated to iOS 8 (and OS X Yosemite) and I no longer see these entries when managing iCloud Drive storage however when looking at ~/Library/Mobile Documents on my MacBook Pro I see directories for these same long gone iOS apps, see below. Does anyone know how to clear these out? If I delete the directories they are just re-downloaded/synced from iCloud. If I turn iCloud off and back on they come back.

    $ find . -d -mindepth 2

    I'm having the same problem I think. I have app data saved on iCloud drive from years ago that I can't seem to be able to remove
