    Any help would be appreciated.

    Many thanks.

    I have this problem too.

    All the settings seem to be correct, but nothing shows in the iCloud app.

    I thought the iCloud app would work like Google Drive, tap on the app and all cloud photos are there. But there's nothing. Clearly something is wrong in settings or whatever or it makes the iCloud app no more than screen decoration.

    I know I find the whole cloud thing to be one of life's mysteries, but Google Drive and Box do at least try to accommodate my permanently bewildered state.

    If anyone has any help for myself and vegas33139 it would be good...

    Unfortunately, the iCloud Drive app does not work in the same manner as other drive storage apps, but hopefully that'll change with iOS 10. As stated via an iMore Blog tutorial, it's merely "turns the DocumentPicker interface into its own app".

    Hey Vegas, I've had a look at Box cloud storage and Google Drive.

    Box doesn't seem to have an easy way to transfer photos back to iPad or iPhone, or creating folders that I can find. Seems a bit limited.

    Google Drive has an app for iPhone and iPad, and is so easy to use. To transfer photos to iPhone or iPad just long press the photo and choose save image. That copies to device photos. Making folders is easy too. Create folder then just long press on photo and drag to the folder.

    Hope that helps till Apple let us use the iCloud app for photos.

    I use Box all the time. It's all there. I have folders and subfolders. I can save photos back to the camera roll. It's my favorite cloud storage app. Love the Notes feature.
