I’m pleased to report iCloud Drive document syncing is loads better with the latest updates. This morning I spent 30 minutes moving between my iPad and Mac on a large numbers spreadsheet and both devices were keeping up. In short, iCloud document syncing is manageable again. Third party apps, like Drafts and Mindnode, are also seeing the benefits of this update. If you’ve been waiting, or had a bad prior experience, update your Mac and iOS devices with yesterday’s updates and give it a try for yourself.
I too concur that iCloud syncing is now working back to normal in the iWork suites on iOS with the 8.1.1 update so if you have been having issues, this latest update is certainly a positive one.
