Microsoft,the tech giant, today launched it’s cloud storage based service i.e. Skydrive for the Android users. This app will enable Android users in sharing files, storing files, accessing files on the move, working together online, sharing photos, etc.
Earlier this month, Microsoft gave its SkyDrive cloud storage service a complete design overhaul that brought it in line with the look and feel of Microsoft’s Windows 8 Metro UI. With that launch, the company also promised to launch first official SkyDrive for Android app soon and eventually its now available at Google Play store. The Android app joins Microsoft’s Windows Phone and iOS apps for SkyDrive and offers virtually the same features. To use the app, Android users need to run Android 2.3 and above.
It is assumed that the company’s main motive of creating SkyDrive apps for its competiting platforms, iOS, Android and OS X, is to penetrate deep in market by associating more and more customers to try out SkyDrive.
SkyDrive directly competes with some of its alike softwares i.e. SugarSync, Dropbox, Google Drive and Apple’s iCloud by providing many distinctive features like free storage of up to 7 GB, cheaper additional space as compared to other softwares, seamless working with Microsoft Office across PC, Mac, and weband many more .
