We knew it was coming and here is the SkyDrive app for Android. Just a few weeks back Microsoft gave SkyDrive, its online cloud storage service a complete UI overhaul making it more usable. With that Microsoft also said that an Android app was in the works. The app is now available on the Play Store and works with Android 2.3 and above, while Microsoft maintains it works best with Android 4.0 (ICS). It offers the same features as its counterparts on Windows Phone and iOS. More after the break.
The Android app gives you easy access to all of the documents you’ve stored on the service. There’s also a list of recently opened documents however the app does not seem to cache files for offline viewing. You can open files with other android apps and also upload files to your SkyDrive.
Microsoft has been pushing SkyDrive and OneNote on all mobile platforms, in order to cater to a larger audience. It makes sense as SkyDrive offers 7GB of cloud storage which is more than its competitors Google Drive, DropBox, Apple iCloud among others and additional storage is available cheaper as well.
