skydrive-iconFollowing the recent OneNote launch for iPad, Microsoft is moving on with another major release – a native SkyDrive app. SkyDrive is Microsoft’s answer to cloud storage services such as iCloud and Dropbox, and they’ve now launched a designated SkyDrive app for both iPhone and Windows Phone.

The new SkyDrive app is especially useful to those who already use SkyDrive, and can now access all their files and folders from anywhere they go. Through the mobile app you can access your documents, music, videos and pictures, and share them with other people. You can also manage files, create and delete folders, and more.


Understandably, the Windows Phone app is somewhat more integrated with the service. Windows Phone users can automatically upload pictures taken on the device’s camera to SkyDrive, and share files from SkyDrive through text messages, e-mails and IMs. The iPhone version is available in 32 languages, and shows that despite the work on Windows Phone, Microsoft knows where most of their users are.

If you’re a regular user of Dropbox, Box, or other services, you might like to know that SkyDrive is offering 25GB of free storage. This is compared to Dropbox who offer 2GB and Box who offer 5GB.
