Default Question about iCloud, what can I store there?

So my 6gb iPhone 4 is slowly getting filled up and I noticed that I have almost 5 gbs of space on iCloud.

What exactly can I store there? Can I download games directly from iTunes to iCloud? Can I store entire games on iCloud?

Games that support it just store your progress so you can delete the game and then install it again later without having to start over.

So only save data, that's it?

Yes only data, no apps.

Technically all your apps are saved on iCloud, as well as music, photos, emails, contacts, documents, device backups, settings, browser tabs, books, etc.

In regards to games, yes, but also everything listed in the iCloud sub-menu of Settings: email, contacts, calendars, reminders, safari (how vague), notes, passbook, photo stream, documents & data and you can use it for 'Find My iPhone'.

iCloud is extremely unreliable, I honestly wouldn't use it as an option to store your game data.

Another question: how would I make a game save to iCloud? I recently got Sky Gamblers Storm Raiders but I want to remove it cause it takes space. The iTunes info says the game has iCloud support but I don't see SGSR data in my iClod storage

I have to insist: the iCloud backup only saves your app data, not the actual apps. It makes sense to save space in iCloud itself. Indeed if you restore then it downloads apps from App Store. More info here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4859

You cannot unless game has specific "Save to iCloud" feature. More info: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1288074
