How do I get into iCloud to see what's there?

Re: How do I remove files from iCloud?

Files are stored in iCloud when you use an iCloud-enabled app, and choose/use the option to save your data/file in iCloud. For example. If you use the Contacts app on your iPhone or Mac, and have enabled Contacts to store them on iCloud, the contacts will be in iCloud. If you use the Text Edit App and when saving a file, picked to save it in iCloud, it would be saved there.

To see what's there, you open you iCloud enabled app.. For an App like Contacts, if iCloud is enabled, all Contacts are in iCloud. To remove one from iCloud, you just remove it from Contacts. To remove all Contacts from iCloud, you turn off iCloud in the App settings. You will be asked if you would like to keep a copy of your contacts on your device, otherwise, they will all be erased. For apps like the Text Editor or Numbers, you open the app, and browse your files that way. There are also things like Safari Bookmarks or iPhone backups could be there. You have to check your iCloud settings on your device (Mac, iPhone, etc) for each of the apps that you use to see if iCloud is enabled. There is no single way to browse all of your files on iCloud at the same time - it's doesn't work that way.

There aren't many apps that use iCloud, and virtually all of them are Apple apps. You probably don't have much stuff there.

Icloud totally sucks! Why here is the thing... When you enable iCloud in iPhone and steam video or photos through Apple TV, all that stuff gets in the screen saver, when you try to delete all those images, from device, they simply deletes from devices... Not from iCloud. Now you got stuck with those images for ever on iCloud. There is no way to cleanup stuff.... I'm tiered of this shit!

All that stuff only goes into the Apple TV IF you enable iCloud on the Apple TV, enable Photo Stream on the Apple TV and setup the screensaver to use your iCloud Photostream photos .. none of things things will work until you go in and make it happen.

Secondly, you can easily delete the images from iCloud.. if the photo was already downloaded to your Apple TV (or other device) you can easily delete it from there as well.
