When you use iCloud to store documents from apps like Keynote, Pages and Numbers, they get saved to your Mac's hard drive as well. Getting at those documents through the Finder, however, is something of a chore. Luckily a resourceful coder has come to the rescue with a handy little utility that makes it easy to get at the local versions of your iCloud files.
Plain Cloud from Cooking Robot shows a list of the apps that are saving data to your iCloud account, and then gives you one-click access to those documents. Each app in Plain Cloud's list shows how many documents have been saved to iCloud, and when you click one the hidden Finder folder where they're stored dutifully opens.

This is remarkably handy if you ever want to copy a file that's been saved to iCloud to a different place on your hard drive, or maybe to a thumb drive so you can later move it to a Mac that doesn't have Internet access. I copy files from the iCloud folder on my Mac all the time since I don't want to resort to email to myself just to get a copy on an external hard drive.
Along with being really useful, Plain Cloud is also free, which just so happens to be my favorite price.
