SkyDrive for iOS gets updated, automatic photo upload now supported
Now, iPhone, iPad and iPod users running iOS 6.0 or better can set their app to automatically upload photos to SkyDrive. It is not enabled by default however, and if you do turn it on, you might want to be running data on Wi-Fi since the app will upload all existing camera roll photos.
For those that have unlimited data, you can set the app to allow it to use the cellular data connection. It can also be restricted to Wi-Fi only. This is a handy feature for people that may have a whole bunch of stuff on their iCloud storage but do not want to pay for more space. SkyDrive offers 7GB of free space (compared to 5GB for most competitors), and the iOS app can even be configured so that it will resize photos taken, thus maximizing available space.
The change log does not stop there. In addition to the normal “bug fixes and performance improvements” that just about any updated app goes through, the SkyDrive app has better integration with Office Mobile for iPhone and OneNote, allowing the ability to edit Office documents. The look and appearance has been freshened for iOS 7 users too.
The question to ask now is how long might it be before we see this feature enabled on the SkyDrive for Android application.

Wow! If only I could have done this on every conceivable platform 3 years ago using Dropbox! Oh wait, I did. MS is once again late to the party.
