CloudKit Dammit!

I just learned that the new version of Drafts will be using CloudKit and will drop Simperium sync. So if I choose not to upgrade my iPhone and want to try the iOS-8-only version of Drafts on my iPad, I will not be able to sync my drafts between the two devices.

I use Drafts pretty much daily, and I have written God knows how many Dropbox, Evernote and URL actions for it. Not only that, I keep it as a notes repository, storing snippets that I will never act on. Kind of like people use nvAlt.

I could choose to only use Drafts as a place to take actions on drafts, i.e., send text to other apps -- and use a Dropbox text editor for storing notes. The big changes that Greg Pierce (the developer) has in store look so enticing that it would be difficult for me not to try it out on my iPad.
