Clearing up the iCloud Drive confusion: No, there's no iCloud Drive app on iOS!

The launch of iOS 8 brought with it the launch of iCloud Drive, and... a whole lot of confusion. Apple stated during the WWDC keynote that while iCloud Drive was coming to both the Mac and iOS, there would not be a standalone iCloud Drive app. That's not a problem with OS X Yosemite because it's built right into the Finder, but iOS doesn't have a Finder either, so the only way to access iCloud Drive on an iPhone or iPad is through an app like Numbers, Keynote, Pages, or an App Store app. Cue the internet pitchforks and torches.

Note: As of iOS 8, Apple has replaced Documents in the Cloud with iCloud Drive. So if you've updated, you can check out our guide on how to set up and use iCloud Drive instead. If you're still using iOS 7 or below, continue on.
