Microsoft Unveils SkyDrive Apps for iPhone and Windows Phone

Windows Live LogoMicrosoft unveiled a version of its SkyDrive cloud service for Windows Phone and the iPhone. The move, Microsoft said in a blog post, comes as people increasingly need access to files on-the-go.

The most recent version of Windows Phone, known as Mango, included deep integration with SkyDrive via the Pictures and Office hubs, allowing for the sharing of photos via text, email, or IM, for example.

Phones running Windows Phone 7.5 can now download the SkyDrive app from the Windows Phone Marketplace and do just that. For those on iOS, the same app was also released in the App Store.

[advt]The SkyDrive updates were a reaction to its recent self-reflection on the state of its cloud services, which found, for example, that fewer than 10 percent of college students considered using SkyDrive for their shared documents, even though most of them started and ended the documents in Microsoft Office. One of the revamped aspects of SkyDrive is to make it more “app-centric,” where files can be worked within the context of the application, and not just SkyDrive.
