Gaming apps go to the iCloud

Ever wished you could get your games from your iPhone on to your iPad? Or on to your iPod touch?
With the launch of the iCloud service by Apple, there's at least a fighting chance that you might be able to do just that.
Unveiled at WWDC - the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference - iCloud is a way of connecting different devices together to share files.
It is not a cloud computing solution in the traditional sense, as files do not have to be stored on a server somewhere.
However, it should allow Apple devices to function as though they were part of the cloud, when files do need to be transferred from one to another.
"This is the cloud the way it should be; automatic and effortless," Apple says.
"iCloud is seamlessly integrated into your apps, so you can access your content on all your devices."
Look out for more details in the run-up to the launch of iCloud across iOS devices in the autumn.
