Microsoft update SkyDrive for iOS, adds automatic photo and video uploading

Microsoft have updated the iOS version of the SkyDrive app. The update adds automatic uploading of photos and video to Microsoft’s SkyDrive service mirroring the feature of the Windows Phone version. It’s great to be able to take a photo and then have it automatically copy to SkyDrive and you can view the photo on the TV via the Xbox One SkyDrive app. Also the integration with the iPhone Office app has been improved and it has a new iOS 7 look and feel.

It good to see Microsoft make SkyDrive work well across mobile platforms, it makes it switching from other cross platform systems like Dropbox much easier. You can find the app in the iTunes Store.

• Camera Backup for automatically uploading photos and videos to SkyDrive
• Improved integration with Office Mobile for iPhone and OneNote, including the ability to edit Office documents
• New look and feel for iOS 7
