Microsoft Cooks Up Native Android SkyDrive Client
Microsoft’s SkyDrive can be a pretty useful cloud-based storage solution, so long as you keep things limited to docs and media. We’ve been fans of the service for some time now, though just how appealing things actually were could vary based on your platform of choice. With Android, for instance, there wasn’t a native client available from Microsoft, forcing you to track down third party solutions. Now that’s all changing, upon an official SkyDrive app arriving at the Play Store.
All the basics you’d look for are here: you can upload and download your own files, share and retrieve files with other users, and manage your collection. If you’ve got a whole mess of photos saved up that you’d like to upload all at once, the app support bulk uploads. There’s also a recently-used list to give you quick access to documents you’ve recently been editing.
It may be a little late, but we’re just glad to know it eventually arrived. If you’re running Gingerbread or later, SkyDrive 1.0 is available for you to check out now.
