Skydrive gets a makeover
Hotmail recently became Outlook with a whole new look and feel to it. Now Skydrive has had a similar makeover.
SkyDrive now has a new, more modern web design, refined SkyDrive apps for PCs and Macs, a new SkyDrive app for Android devices, and improved developer offerings. These updates bring SkyDrive out of preview and ready for a billion users – in time for the upcoming releases of Windows 8, the new Outlook.com, and the new Office.
- SkyDrive.com – New, modern design for desktop and tablet browsers with instant search, contextual toolbar, thumbnail multi-select, drag-and-drop organization, and HTML5 sorting
- SkyDrive for Windows desktop & OS X – Faster uploads for people around the world and tons of bug and performance improvements under the hood
- SkyDrive for Android – A new app that lets you access, upload and share from Android phones
- SkyDrive for developers – Apps built using our SkyDrive API can now store or access any type of file in a person’s SkyDrive, plus there’s a new, easy-to-use file picker API for websites (similar to our file picker for Windows 8 apps)
You can now quickly search for a file anywhere in your SkyDrive, including the content of Office documents such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint. There is a contextual toolbar to make common actions and commands easier. You can select multiple files in thumbnail view, rearrange your photos the way you want, and drag and drop files and folders.
