Microsoft’s Official SkyDrive Application Made Available for Android

Starting right meow, Microsoft’s official SkyDrive application is available on Google Play for Android devices. If you’re unfamiliar with SkyDrive, think of it as Dropbox or Box, but made by Microsoft. Once signed in to your Microsoft account, you’ll be given access to 7GB of cloud storage and it also allows for instant upload for easy access of files on multiple devices or computers. 

Play Link

It’s the first day of release, so we’re going to hang in there until Microsoft pushes out some other features that will make it more desirable.

    Where on earth is instant upload for android? Btw, sugarsync is great but too expensive and no document editing. What is keeping me from google drive there is no option for offline folder synchronization (on iPad I can do it with goodreader and skydrive (and or sugarsync).

    SugarSync much better

    What good is 7GB?

      If it comes with Microsoft involvement, “no good” is the answer

    Can you stream video on skydrive from the Android app like you can with WP? If so, Pornopalooza 2012!

    One of the best features of Skydrive is the “fetch” feature. I’m going to assume (can’t try it at the moment) that won’t be enabled in the Android App, but I believe it is available on the WP app – if not now, definitely by the time WP8 is released. Microsoft takes heat, but Skydrive is pretty solid honestly.


    I just downloaded the software for windows and after i installed it i had to jump through so many hoops (authorization, verification, email response, code verification) I deleted the damn thing. 7 gig? Really?. Typical Microsoft intrusion. I thought they were going to ask me to mail in a stool sample next.

      Yea I also hate security. I’d rather get hacked.

    “Meow what is so damned funny?”
    “I could’ve sworn you said Meow.”
    Foster: “Do I look like a cat to you boy? Am I jumping around all nimbly bimbly from tree to tree?”
    Man: “No, no.”
    Foster: “Am I drinking milk from a saucer?”
    Man: “No.”
    Foster: “Well do you see me eating mice? Now you stop laughing right now.”
    Foster: “Meow, I’m gonna have to give you a ticket on this one.”
    Foster: “…no buts Meow. That’ the law. Not so funny Meow is it?”

    Foster: “MEOW!”

    50GB at Box, 25GB Dropbox, and 50GB at sugarsync. But I missed out on live. Oh well.

    Anyone know if you can download your stored files to your device? Dropbox has been the only one to let you that.

    • There should be an icon with a down facing arrow pointing towards an underline. That will download any files stored on your skydrive.

    Everyone calm down meow.

      meow I think I’m going to download this!

      • Bigwavedave25

        Alright meow, we’ve all had our fun. Naa…

  • How Many times are you gonna fit Meow into the Blog Posts today? As of meow I would guess thirteen. Meow that would be amazing.

    Great timing, my uni has given us 25GB SkyDrive’s this semester since they’re integrating with MS more. That being said, I wouldn’t use SkyDrive over either Google Drive or especially DropBox if I had to choose.

    • Why?

      • moe6

        Not that I post nude shots on any of my clouds or anything like that, I’m just very embedded within Google’s stuff and have been using DropBox since they started up

        • That’s understandable. I personally never got DropBox and I had SkyDrive before Google Drive became available.

    Glad i jumped in early on and was able to nab the 25GB they were offering before lowering it to 7GB’s.
