I can view the contents of many different types of files in IOS 6 but not those saved in iCloud.

Of course Calendar, Contact, Notes etc sync automatically via iCloud. I can even see the filenames of files in iCloud, but I can't read the contents of these files.

I dont néed Pages and Numbers apps on my iPhone, but I would appreciate a Preview app if Apple decided to provide one. There doesn't seem to be an app in the App Store which will simply read documents saved in iCloud.

If Apple provided this function in IOS 6 (7?), I would not need SugarSync or DropBox.
