I use TextEdit to store a number of notes for me, and now my Mac is in Apple repair, I can't access them.

  • How can I use a PC to access these notes?

  • Is it possible to use an iPad mini to access these notes?

What I've done so far

  1. I logged into http://icloud.com and didn't see my documents under any available application.

  2. I installed the iCloud app for PC and although I see the ability to sync "Mail, Contacts, Tasks with Outlook" and sync "bookmarks" and "photo stream" ... none of them are "text files".


You can't.

TextEdit files can only be accessed from TextEdit (That's how iCloud storage is made). Therefore you'll need a Mac connected to your iCloud account.

Go to https://developer.icloud.com and click on documents. You will find com~apple~TextEdit and you can download files but can't upload files.

  • Doesn't this require a (free) developer account? – nohillside Nov 17 '13 at 18:19
  • No, it has nothing to do with apple's developer account and works for every iCloud account. – Duvrai Feb 24 '14 at 11:25
