iCloud still a massive headache for developers »

Jumsoft blog:

Right after iCloud was first released, we started getting requests to incorporate an iCloud feature into Money for easier syncing. That really seemed to be a great idea, and in a way it still does. We started working on it immediately and ran into problems not much later. After many months of constant issues, we thought we saw a light at the end of the tunnel when Mountain Lion and iOS 6 came out, because we finally managed to build a Money version with an operational iCloud sync. However, as we can see now, it was a bit too early for champagne.

Apple has got to get this sorted. Not for any consumer facing reasons, but rather to enable developers to provide good syncing on Apple’s platform. If Apple can get devs on board with iCloud sync, it not only provides goodwill, but also further locks developers into their ecosystem.
