Microsoft releases SkyDrive cloud storage app for the iPhone and iPod touch


Well, technically you didn't need the app for that; you could used the URL to access your Skydrive account as well. But the app does make it easier....

iUnarchive (not Lite) also connects to SkyDrive and adds the following features:
- native iPad UI
- upload multiple files at once
- preview of a lot more file types
- the option to open a file with another App
- many more Cloud services (including DropBox)

This is very useful to me. It hosts my Skydrive files that I already have there and allows me to upload files from my iPhone (and iPad 3 when I get one). This is great. Way to go Microsoft. Something I can use!!!

Very great post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to mention that I have truly loved surfing around your blog posts. After all I'll be subscribing in your feed and I hope you write again soon!
