SkyDrive app for Android coming in a few weeks

SkyDrive app for Android coming in a few weeks
So let's say that you are one of those people who really enjoy using Microsoft's SkyDrive and its 7GB of free storage allowance, but Google's Android is what powers your tablet or the smartphone in your pocket. There's exciting news for you: Microsoft confirmed that an official SkyDirve app for Android is currently being developed, so you won't have to use those third-party clients anymore.

The Android SkyDrive client will be similar to the existing ones, available on iOS and Windows Phone. It will allow users to browse the files in their personal cloud, as well as to upload new ones straight from their mobile device, either from apps that have SkyDrive integration, or straight from the client itself. Sending download links for files in the cloud will also be possible. 

SkyDrive for Android is not available for download yet, but it will be within a few weeks. An announcement will be made via the service's Twitter feed, so keep an eye on it in case you are interested.

Damn we're only getting SkyDirve? I thought we were getting SkyDrive. Misleading title is misleading.
