Microsoft Launches SkyDrive for iPhone

Microsoft yesterday launched SkyDrive apps for both iPhone and Windows 7.5 Phone. Now SkyDrive users can access their files from these smartphones and share them with others. SkyDrive is Microsoft’s all-in-one cloud service, a place for users to store their documents, photos and videos without using disk space on their devices. It’s Microsoft’s equivalent to Apple’s iCloud  and Google Docs.
 
With today’s release for Windows Phones, SkyDrive functions have been expanded. Previously, users could only access photo files and Office documents in SkyDrive on their phones. With the new standalone app, all files and folders are now accessible in SkyDrive, an important feature to “SkyDrive power users,” Microsoft’s Mike Torres said in a blog post.
 
But the real news comes for iPhone owners who use Windows computing systems. Microsoft has a long history of adapting its software for iPhone  and Mac users, including apps like Bing, Messenger, OneNote (with SkyDrive sync), Skype and its Microsoft Office suite. Android? Not so much.
After downloading the free SkyDrive app for iPhone, mobile users can access their SkyDrive files, as well as create folders, delete files and share links to files and folders, according to Microsoft. The app is available in 32 languages from the App Store.
