Upgrade to iOS 9, there's a new "iCloud Drive" app that will let you view its contents.

Previously, only apps explicitly written to be compatible with iCloud Drive could view/write files to it.

Arbitrary files can be added to iCloud Drive from Finder on Mac OS X or Explorer on Windows (if the iCloud control panel is installed), or through the web interface at
