iOS9 has really improved the ability for iOS Apps to interchange files and documents, but it's still very confusing.

In this episode, I take a look at iCloud Drive on iOS and the Mac and try to explain how it all works. I also take a look at local storage options in various apps on iOS to explain just what is a Document Provider, as well at how the system wide Document Picker can be used in many different scenarios.

The full tutorial covers:

  • iOS History
  • iCloud First Principles
  • iCloud Drive Folders
  • Apple Apps
  • Local App Folders
  • Document Picker
  • Other Cloud Services
  • Dropbox
  • Using Box
  • Using Transmit
  • iCloud Drive on the Mac
  • iCloud Drive on the Web
  • Other Approaches

Great show since it helped reduce the confusion. Found out about PDF expert and Transmit as well. How would you compare PDFpen to PDF Expert?

I like that I can speed the video by 1.5X. Is there a way to add 10 second back button?
