Apple has released updated versions of the Keynote, Pages and Numbers iOS apps, adding support for iCloud's Documents in the Cloud feature. iCloud now backs up documents automatically and syncs versions between the iWork apps on iOS and the Mac.
OS X Mountain Lion is required to sync documents between the Mac and iOS versions of Keynote, Numbers and Pages.
Keynote/Numbers/Pages 1.6.1 works with iCloud to make presentations automatically available between your iOS device and Keynote on your Mac*. Changes made to a presentation on one device are instantly available on the other.
*Requires Keynote 5.2 or later installed on OS X Mountain Lion
Apple has been working on removing the hierarchical file system for several years, something that should make finding files easier for computer novices. Apple's marketing specifically highlights this as a feature: "You don’t have to manage your documents in a complicated file system or remember to save them to a special folder."
Keynote, Pages and Numbers are universal apps, available for $9.99 each on the App Store.

I like my organisation of documents into folders and sub-folders.
Don't get too excited, the functionality is still crippled. Since so many features still don't work on the iOS version, the implementation still results in duplicates of your files and they do not end up synced with one another.
It only works if you limit yourself to what the iOS versions can do and no more. Obviously the functionality of the iOS version is unacceptable on a full fledged operating system. So right not it doesn't "just work" and actually kind of sucks.
No thanks, iA Writer is even more feature limited than Pages.
I think it's an insult to people to assume that an average person cannot understand how a hierarchical file system works, since it's exactly how we organise documents and our thoughts naturally, whether using folders and cupboards or our brain. I am not sure who at Apple thinks this is a good idea, but I have 10 GBs of documents and storing them without a hierarchy would be plain silly.
Wow, put stuff into a folder, remember where you put it. Really difficult and expert level of computing knowledge is required for this. Of course a flat structure of thousands of documents is MUCH better. :confused: :rolleyes:
Seriously, where did Apple get the feedback that storing stuff in a folder is too difficult? User surveys at the Midvale School for the Gifted? I like a lot of things about Apple, but this is insulting to anyone with an IQ above a slow chimpanzee.
A search index does not replace a good folder structure, it only supplements it. Keeping stuff organised based on related information such as one project is a natural thing that humans do.
