Review SkyDrive

Evgenii Kostrov
8.8Excellent
Convenient interface, stylish design, completely free
No significant shortcomings
Let us introduce to you the official application from Microsoft allowing to store documents, photos and other files at the cloud service SkyDrive. This service is very popular among the users due to the fact that access to the uploaded files can be obtained from virtually every device if you have at hand the internet and even an ordinary browser. Owners of smartphones based on Windows Phone are even luckier as they will be able to use this cloud service with comfort in any place where there is the internet connection.

Start using the service

To start working with the program, just install the application and sign into your account using the same data that you use at the Windows Phone store. The SkyDrive application has a very nice interface and easy navigation through the available folders. Initially, each user is provided with 7 Gb in a cloud free of charge and believe us, it is more than enough to upload all the necessary documents and files.
Right when you first start the program you will see several folders among which there are ones intended for documents from Microsoft Office, for the mail and for the gallery. Also, there is a shared folder into which you can transfer documents and give access to them to your friends or acquaintances. The great thing is that today there are many third-party applications ready to work with the cloud service of SkyDrive. For example, having installed UC Browser, you can upload files not only to the browser but also in SkyDrive, and at this he folder with uploaded files will be created automatically.
Users of Windows Phone 7.5 will find this software in general extremely necessary as for them it will be way easier to set a song on an incoming call or a photo to a contact through the cloud service of SkyDrive. At the very least, if there is no computer at hand. The application allows to search files by name ,which means that you will not face any difficulties in finding a document, looking through it and even beginning to edit or send it via e-mail.

Interface and useful features

Depending on what interface of the main menu you choose, the screen will display the tiles with the name of folders alone, or complete information on the number of files, allocated space and the level of access (private or for everybody). If being at the main screen we make a swipe to the left, we will find ourselves in an online notebook that will always be with us and prevent us from forgetting something.

Resume

In the same notebook there is a section named "Quick Notes" with which you can create, for example, a shopping list or a trip plan. The wonderful thing is that you now do not have to change the data after the implementation erasing items. It is enough to put a check mark in front of each one, and it becomes clear that this paragraph does not require attention anymore. The online notebook can be synchronized with multiple devices allowing all yur family members and friends to keep being abreast of changing plans.
