Apple and Microsoft have just announced a brand new iCloud app for Windows available in the Microsoft Store. The new store app brings iCloud storage to Windows 10 using the same on-demand technology as OneDrive and integration of browser bookmarks and photos. It also syncs mail, calendar, contacts and tasks with Outlook.

This looks like a great app for iPhone users to bring together content stored in iCloud into Windows 10.
