Android users now got more cloud storage options, Microsoft has rolled out its cloud storage service SkyDrive app to Android devices. Now we got to make a choice between the popular Dropbox, Google Drive and SkyDrive. The SkyDrive app for Android is similar to the mobile apps for Windows Phone and iOS and is a key part of making sure SkyDrive files are accessible and sharable from all devices.
SkyDrive is a cloud storage service from Microsoft, the place to store files so you can access them from virtually any device. With SkyDrive you can upload and manage – documents, photos, and other files, plus the files other people have shared with you. With SkyDrive you can also share your files and photos – send a link in email or in another app. If you are an existing Microsoft SkyDrive users ( MSN, Hotmail user also) then you will be getting 25GB of free cloud storage space and for all new users signing up for the service will get 5GB of cloud storage.
“In building the new SkyDrive app for Android, we wanted to ensure we kept the same intuitive design of all SkyDrive experiences while also making use of Android design patterns and conventional interactions, so this feels natural for people with Android phones. In this release, SkyDrive is available for Android phones with access to Google Play. 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“. said Mike Torres, Group Program Manager, SkyDrive Apps on the official Windows Team Blog.
