Microsoft Rolls Out Major Update of SkyDrive Cloud Storage

eWeek: Microsoft has launched the first major update for its SkyDrive cloud storage service since the end of 2011. “Today, we’re updating SkyDrive with a new, more modern web design, refined SkyDrive apps for PCs and Macs, a new SkyDrive app for Android devices, and improved developer offerings,” blogged Microsoft’s Chris Jones. “While there’s always more to do to improve our products, 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.”

Key new features in the upgrade include a redesigned interface with a contextual toolbar and thumbnail multi-select, faster performance, a new Android app, API improvements and better search capabilities.
