Does iCloud Drive work as a local "My Documents" for iOS?
With iOS having no local user accessible file system like a "My Documents", is iCloud Drive the "new" My Documents?
I know that iCloud Drive can be accessed from iOS, and on the desktop form factor from a Windows or Mac system.
Perhaps from decades of using a My Documents like implementation on Windows or Macs, a local file system concept is cemented in my mind to the point where to me it feels like iOS is limited and has less capability compared to Android, BB10, or Windows Mobile OS's that have a local file system.
So, what is your experience with using iCloud Drdive as the replacement for iOS not having a local "My Documents".

Thanks for the helpful responses. I just realized that I should have been more specific in my original question and the thread topic. I should have included "Drive".
iCloud - iCloud Drive - Apple

It depends on the app, but most can use iCloud as a "My Documents" type of folder. Built in apps like mail can use it like my Documents. Other Apple apps like pages/keynote can as well. Any 3rd party app can be coded to access it, but some older ones haven't implemented it yet. It's definitely a bit more clumsy than a file folder though, you can't really re-organize things easily for example.
