Microsoft SkyDrive App Now Available on Android With 7 GB of Free Storage

Aug 31, 2012

Microsoft's cloud storage solution SkyDrive is finally available on Android. Just log in with a Microsoft account – this can be an old Hotmail account, or the account used to log in to Xbox Live – and then all of a user's SkyDrive is available. From within the app, only photos and videos can be uploaded, though other types of files can be uploaded through Android's default sharing dialogue. The app conforms to standard 4.x design, using Roboto font and some Holo design elements.

In a world where Dropbox has become the most ubiquitous service, and where Google Drive is an integral part of Android 4.x devices, why check out SkyDrive? Well, they're offering 7 GB of storage for free. With all this free cloud storage, we might not ever need to have an actual hard drive ever again! Our files will be available everywhere! Well, until the servers go down or get hacked, because technology is a fickle beast. The official SkyDrive app is available for free from Google Play
