Sorry, just realized I posted this first in the wrong area, so forgive the cross-post.

My problem is that, despite my being up-to-date with Yosemite (Mac) and IOS 8 (iPod Touch/iPhone), and having put the new iWork on everything, I can't open Pages documents in IOS 8 that I have edited on the Mac. I can see them listed, but there's no response when I try to open them. Sometimes I see "Updating," other times I don't, but in neither case will a document I tap on open up in IOS 8.

Do you have your iCloud drive activated on your Mac, iPod Touch, and iPhone? And are the iWork apps loaded on all three devices? And finally, are you signed in to iCloud with the same Apple ID on all devices?

Yes to all

Yes, I have the current version of iWork on everything, I'm logged in with the same account, and I do indeed *see* the documents on, for example, the iPod Touch. It just keeps saying "Updating" and never finishes. There's a little line across the bottom of each document icon that looks like a progress bar, though it's so small it's hard to be sure.

I'm having the same problems. However the pages documents do eventually sync ... sometimes takes over half an hour or more. Very sketchy ... sometimes they update even as I am typing, sometimes they don't appear on other device for hours. Weird.
I'm really disappointed with iCloud drive so far ... wish there was a way to go back to simple iCloud. All my documents synced quickly and reliably between MacBook Pro and iPad and iPhone.

Give it time guys. The iCloud drive is working albeit slowly. Hopefully with today's update to iOS 8 (8.1) that will speed things up somewhat.
