Interesting, but that hasn't been my experience.I placed images in my upload folder and they now appear on my iPhone, but do not appear on my new iPad. Both devices have iCloud and Photo settings matched to use iCloud for Photostream.
Any ideas why they're not showing up on my iPad but are on my iPhone?
Update: It seems if you have your cellular data enabled it won't stream photos. Once I turned off my cellular data link, the photos appeared- must have needed a "wifi ONLY" connection?
