While Microsoft's SkyDrive is nothing new but around since 2007, so far it lacked a desktop client to automate synchronization, as Windows Live Mesh does. However, today Microsoft announced the release of SkyDrive for the Windows desktop (preview) which allows to view and manage personal SkyDrive files and folders directly from Windows Explorer on Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista with this new preview app available in 106 languages worldwide. Furthermore, Microsoft has updated its Windows Phone and iPhone apps which now allows to delete, rename, and move files and providing access to a full set of sharing options for all files and folders.

Furthermore, Microsoft is bringing SkyDrive to the iPad, with all the same capabilities available on the iPhone, plus support for the new iPad retina display.

Interesting enough, there's still no official Android app available from Microsoft but somehow HTC managed to get its nose into the SkyDrive API and is exclusively offering a SkyDrive integration for its latest range of HTC One smartphones.

Furthermore, Microsoft has introduced new SkyDrive paid storage plans (+20 GB, +50 GB, +100 GB) so that power users who need more storage can easily add more at competitive prices (US$ 10/year, US$ 25/year, US$ 50/year).

Cheers ~ Arne
