Microsoft Announces SkyDrive Mac and iOS App

Microsoft Corporation has announced a new application for the SkyDrive storage service for Windows 8 and Mac OS X. SkyDrive is considered a competitor to Dropbox and iCloud. You can upload files to SkyDrive as easily as using drag and drop from your desktop to the cloud. Google is rumored to be working on a cloud storage app of their own.

SkyDrive for Mac is the easiest way to access your SkyDrive from your Mac. When you install SkyDrive, a SkyDrive folder is created on your computer. Everything you put in this folder is automatically kept in sync between your computers (Mac or PC) and, so you can get to your latest files from virtually anywhere… Almost 70% of Mac users also regularly use a Windows PC. Since we want every customer to be able to rely on SkyDrive to access files anywhere, it’s important for SkyDrive be wherever they are.

Microsoft has also updated their iOS SkyDrive iPad app to support Retina Display.

The SkyDrive Mac app lets you access the storage space straight from Finder. You can upload photos, documents, and other files from Finder through the Mac app.
