SkyDrive For Android: Squirrel Stuff Away On Your Phone

SkyDrive For Android: Squirrel Stuff Away On Your Phone

Android users who opt for Microsoft’s cloud storage solution can rejoice, because Microsoft has just rolled out the SkyDrive app for Google’s mobile operating system.

What does it do?

SkyDrive for Android lets you view, share and add new content to your SkyDrive account from your phone. You get 7GB free a year, and after that it’s $10 per year for an additional 20GB, $25 per year for an extra 50GB or $50 for an extra 100GB.

Why do we like it?

Microsoft has a great storage solution in SkyDrive, and it’s already accessible through a number of places — iOS, Windows Phone, Mac and Windows. Now, as Microsoft assured it would, the app has landed on Android. It’s designed to work best with Ice Cream Sandwich, but it’s compatible as far back as Android 2.3. A few of the pluses are you can upload multiple photos and videos from your phone at the same time, and you can share your stuff through email. On top of that, you can still get to your SkyDrive documents through other apps. Great to see a fully-baked app delivered on time, as promised.
