Tutorial Description

iCloud Drive opens up iOS to previously unimagined flexibility.

No longer constrained by individual document silos, iOS 8 introduces a system wide Document Picker that gives you almost free range when browsing files across multiple applications.

Except there is no "File Manager app" for iOS - all file access is mandated by the use of the Document Picker which currently is not available through all apps. Developers need to update their applications to access the Document Picker.

However, some applications are now updated and available, so this episode gives run a run down of the current status, and provides you with some examples of how apps can save and open documents using the Document Picker.

I also take a look at how apps can interact with other apps, as well as access third party storage services, all using the Document Picker.

You may need to watch this episode twice!

The full tutorial covers:

  • Introduction
  • iCloud Drive and Pages
  • Extensibility with Apps
  • Extensibility with Storage Providers
  • Example Applications
