Windows Phone's SkyDrive cloud service now open to third party apps, HandyScan has first dibs
Microsoft's cloud service SkyDrive is generous with its 25GB of free storage, but until now only the default Windows Phone apps could integrate with it. When you took a picture with the camera, it can get directly uploaded to SkyDrive for safekeeping, for example, or when you create or edit a document with the mobile version of Office, you could share it with others on SkyDrive.

The software giant, however, rehashed the API of SkyDrive recently, and is now giving third party developers a way to integrate the SkyDrive cloud functionality in their apps. This will certainly open the floodgates, and you will quickly see alternative apps to back up your contact, texts and email, stream music and vids, collaborate on documents, or save content for later reading, among numerous other possibilities.

HandyScan is the first app that jumped in, as it only makes sense for an OCR application to be able to upload the scanned docs and translations directly to Windows Phone's default cloud service.
