I haven’t used any of the iCloud API yet, but I’m guessing it is not this simple for data retrieval. I may have to try out this service for some of my future apps.

There is still a lot of work to be done building tools for iOS programming. All the free stuff in GitHub is great, but the projects can disappear. Backend services that you pay for, like parse, will be a growing market.
