The SkyDrive team have added a nice update to the Windows 8/Windows RT SkyDrive app today. The updated app has live tile notification so it will show you things like document files names of new document and thumbnails of photos recently added. While it’s not a major change it’s a nice addition to the service, the updated app should be rolling out some time today.
Starting today, the SkyDrive app from the Windows Store will start showing you notifications on the live tile when you add new files to your SkyDrive. Now the tile for the SkyDrive app will be useful for more than just launching the app, by providing at-a-glance info on what’s going on in your SkyDrive. Whenever you add new files to SkyDrive, the app tile shows you relevant details. If you add a document, you’ll see the document name, along with when it was added, and what folder it’s in. If you add photos, the tile gives you a nice view of those photos.
