Apple has already outed its plans to bring iOS apps like Notes and Reminders to OS X later this year, and it looks like those apps are now heading to, as well.

As spotted by 9to5Mac, Apple is testing two alternate versions of its iCloud website for developers — one called "beta" and one called "dev" — that adds those two iOS apps in web app form.

In order to use the beta version of that site, Apple notes that users must have a developer account, although developers have noticed that it's not up and running just yet.

This is the latest developmental blip to crop up on the site in recent days. Earlier this week, Apple was spotted testing iOS-style banner notifications on the site; however, it appeared to be a nothing more than a placeholder. The change comes exactly one month away from when Apple holds its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WDC). Last year's show marked the introduction of iCloud, which launched alongside iOS 5 last October.

The question remains about how much more Apple will add to So far, it's been mainly a carry-over from what was available on MobileMe and .Mac before that. Nonetheless, Apple has added to it with things like access to iWork document storage. The addition of these other apps could hint at more to come.

CNET has reached out to Apple for more information, and we will update this story if we hear back.
