Lost in a Cloud: Somewhere over the rainbow


I share Pietro’s frustration with iCloud. With storage anchored firmly to individual apps, it’s sometimes hard to find your stuff. I’ve persevered, but I’m going to say now that I prefer storage arrangements in a file system that I can understand. Dropbox take a bow.

For weeks I have been trying to organise my blog posts in iCloud using Byword. It’s been a frustrating routine: Open file, rename file, move file. And when it has been moved there is no folder structure to keep ideas, finished posts and current posts separated. Confused? I am.

You wouldn’t mistake iCloud document storage for anything other than a Version 1.
