SkyDrive app arrives on Android
SkyDrive, Microsoft’s cloud storage and file management system, has now arrived on Android’s Google Play store in a free app with the Modern (formerly Metro) UI. The SkyDrive application works on Android devices running 2.3 Gingerbread or later.

With SkyDrive for Android you can upload documents and images, manage them in folders and share with others online. To view and edit documents, though, you’d have to rely on third-party office apps you have installed on Google Play.

At first sight, we do like the looks of the SkyDrive app, but it seems that functionality is still a bit limited. Still, it’s a nice first step toward bringing Microsoft’s cloud system to other platforms. With its Google Play debut, SkyDrive is now on three platforms - Windows Phone, iOS and Android.
