After the promise comes the news. Microsoft announced today that the official SkyDrive app for Android phones is available for download from the Google Play store. With the coming of SkyDrive’s Android app, you can have everywhere-anywhere access to your documents in the cloud via your smartphone.
The Android app is now part of the trinity with the earlier launches of apps for Windows Phone and iOS, so Skydrive now covers all the common smartphone OS we use. The SkyDrive blog says that the new app is designed to work best with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)—though it’s also fully functional on Android 2.3 and above.
The screenshots show the interface of the app has been designed keeping in mind the natural order we use to interact with our mobile apps. Your documents, photos, and other files can be organized into created folders and shared. You can just as easily access files others have shared with you. Also, there is a linear view of recently used documents that cuts short the browsing time.
For multimedia – you can choose multiple photos or videos to upload from your phone. You can share them with others as a link in an email or using another app. Microsoft seems to have got it right with an interface that looks functional as well as aesthetic. What do you think?
