If you own a Mac running OS X Mountain Lion and use an iPhone or iPad running iOS 6, iCloud is a great way to access certain kinds of files and documents across all your devices. For many users, they'll just start off creating documents in iCloud whether they're on their Mac or iOS device. But what about all those documents that are already on your Mac that you'd like access to on your iPhone and iPad?
As it turns out, you can kick them over to iCloud pretty easily. Here's how:
Keep in mind, as with anything, only apps and document management software that support iCloud integration will work with this. For this example, we'll be moving a document from Pages that's stored on the hard drive, to iCloud. Pages supports iCloud on both Mac and iOS.
That's all there is to it. The document you've moved will now be available cross-platform in their respective apps. While this isn't a perfect solution, it works for now. One of our iOS 7 wants is a much needed file management system across all devices, iOS and Mac. Until then, this should help ease some of the pain when it comes to dealing with older documents.
