Being a user of Dropbox for a good while, my hope for Icloud would be an accessible "cloud" backup for the Ipad but it is not. I just added storage to cover some important apps but wish I had spent the money with Dropbox for more storage. If you only have one Apple device it really isn't much good except for a complete restore IMO. I have a Touch and an Ipad 1 in addition to my Ipad 3 but I don't really care that they are synched. In fact, my Touch and Ipad 1 are used primarily for music and I don't use the same apps. For my husband who has an Iphone and Ipad it does keep Contacts, photos, Notes synced but to be truly useful it needs to act as a backup, accessible (I know, others see this as redundant) to restore an individual app if issues arise. I'm a longtime Windows user so much of Icloud is just not applicable for me. I'm hoping that Icloud will be revised in a more useful way.
