I have not been able to make this work yet!! Have tried several times, restarting iCloud, checking & unchecking the boxes, etc....I finally just went back to Dropbox for my sync/sharing needs.

I was excited to give this a try as a solution to replacing my iDisk, so I dropped a 3GB folder into the Mobile Documents folder per these instructions. 48 hours later, I was notified by my internet host that my MetroE line had been uploading 12Mbit for two days straight (almost 200GB of data). I deleted the folder and usage went back to normal. Clearly, putting items in this folder is not something Apple has sanctioned.

Creating folders in this directory, even when sync is on does not appear when one goes back intro the cloud. This entire story/tutorial needs to be done again showing the END. They kept the end out because when he goes back up onto the iCloud - nothing work!

Is it possible to share files using the public folders "drop box" ?, if so how does the preferred recipient access it ?

Tried this, but can't access my files through iCloud. I don't own any of the iWorks programs so am I at a loss?

Is it possible to access this information on Apple's iCloud website?

If we put a document in the mobile document folder, does it appear in our ios iworks apps too?
