SkyDrive apps for Windows Phone 8 and Android updated, allows for selective syncing of foldersBy Ron on Thursday, Nov 15th, 2012 at 10:29AM
Its already been six months since Microsoft released the first SkyDrive sync apps for Windows Phone and Android, and now Microsoft is proud to announce new updates to these apps as well as how the company has doubled the amount of storage being used on SkyDrive.
"With today’s release, you can now select which folders from SkyDrive are synced – making it easier to use SkyDrive with laptops or tablets with small drives. You’re in control. If you’d like to keep all your photos and documents in SkyDrive but only sync a folder of your most important documents to your laptop, you can do that – even if your desktop is syncing the full set," Microsoft stated in an official blog post. Users can even select sub-folders to sync to SkyDrive. Users can now share easily too by simply right-clicking and selecting Share.
The SkyDrive apps for Windows Phone 8 and Android have both been updated to feature performance improvements and visual updates. The WP8 SkyDrive app features "all-around performance improvements and some visual updates to better fit Windows Phone 8" and the ability to search SkyDrive files and folders, as well as control photo upload and download size. The SkyDrive Android app features the ability to upload all file types from SD card, rename SkyDrive folders and files, and have custom sort orders. The updated apps will be available within the next 48 hours. Hit the download link below to grab it.
