Mac OS X "It's no longer possible to write a single app that takes advantage of the full range of Mac OS X features. Some APIs only work inside the Mac App Store. Others only work outside it. Presumably, this gap will widen as more new features are App Store-exclusive, while sandboxing places greater restrictions on what App Store apps are allowed to do." Anybody surprised by this, here's the clue stick. Please proceed to hit yourself with it.

iCloud API is not App Store related, though.

Yes it is. iCloud is tied to the AppStore on both iOS and OS X. The mechanism, by definition, is curated. The fact is that there is no way that Apple is going to let unsanctioned apps put data on their iCloud servers, nor should we expect them to. They are not Dropbox, after all, nor do they claim to be.
