Document-Based iCloud Problems

Max Seelemann:

The most problematic part for us was understanding Apple’s NSFileCoordinator APIs and the many issues we had with it. The thing is: it looks simple, the methods are certainly simple and the documentation is written in a simple way -- but it’s use is everything but simple. In retrospective, we get the impression that the whole system seems to have been tested for Apple’s standard use only. That is, a user-managed single layer of folders, with occasional opening, saving and renaming of a few monolithic files. Pages, Keynote, traditional document-based apps. However, while the underlying APIs are designed and documented for broader use and more advanced situations, they soon start to fail if being used like that.
