    The iCloud backup of your iPad does not include everything on your iPad, only certain data files. The rest of the files are on your computer already or are part of your App/iTunes/iBooks downloads which are NOT counted against your 5GB's of free storage.

    For instance, I have about 55GB of files on my iPad, however my iCloud backup total is slightly less than 1GB.

    Here's a list of the files that are included in the iPad/iCloud backup:

    Hope that helps!

    Good find! I have the magazine sitting here (and their app, which is pretty good BTW) but hadn't gotten to it yet.

    As it mentions, I've been backing up to both iCloud daily and iTunes about once a week or so. Here's a list of what items are backed up to iTunes (Vs iCloud):

    in is not in the print version. It is from an app for the iPad from Macworld. It is a news updater done daily Monday thru Friday covering Mac, IOS, Buisness, Creative and other headers. Well worth a look

    Yep, they do a great job. I really look forward to the Macalope's weekly column. I read that if nothing else!

    Careful. My Kindle app took up a whopping 2.7 GB on iCloud, and I was down to 800 MB left. I disabled the backup for Kindle and now have plenty of cloud storage left. The Kindle books have their own cloud storage so I don't think they need this redundancy. I have a few hundred books, but several are enhancecd books that take up a lot of space.
