Apple’s vision of the cloud makes native apps better. Others see the cloud as a substitute for native apps.
I keep thinking of the ways the iCloud file storage API will help with native applications on iOS and OS X. Seeing what having a Dropbox can do for mobile development something full interagted with the OS is pretty cool.

Just so you know Apple didn’t copy Dropbox for this feature, they copied Ubuntu One and CouchDB.
