    I have noticed a lot f games introducing iCloud saving options and such. In one instance Doodle Jump has it and I can see the save data in the manage storage section of iCloud in the documents section.

    On another hand I have several Cut the Rope titles and Scribblenauts and they also have iCloud saving, and it works perfectly, but I have yet to find where these are actually saving.

    Does anyone know this answer? Is there anyway short of deleting and reinstalling the app to verify its working? I've checked everywhere I can. I have even deleting my iCloud "backup" and it still works, but where? Lol

    Thanks in advance!

    Wait, iCloud saves? Does this mean that my progress will sync between iPhone and iPad? :confused:

    Yes, for instance like doodle jump, when the icloud save function is on you can see that data saves in the Documents & Data portion of my icloud settings. However with Cut the Rope Experiments its also saving on iCloud but I cannot find where its saving anywhere.

    Its not in my itunes backup as I have not actually backed up to iTunes in quite some time, and I have deleted my "iTunes Backup" from iCloud and it is still saving on iCloud in a non seeable place because after I delete everything I have on iCloud, delete the game, reboot the phone etc. I redownload the game and it picks up right where it left off.

    I just wanna know how to verify where they are going so I know they are there lol

    I thought those game save themselves to the 4-kilobyte-per-app Game Center database.

    It saves it in the Keebler tree where all of the other cookies are kept.

    Seriously? You plan on saving the world with Doodle Jump, are you? Lighten up. It is a thread about games.

    Who said anything about saving the world? Your right, it's a thread about games not cookies.
