OneDrive is the naming the software giant has adopted for its app. The new naming comes to coincide with other of MS’s products and services offered now and from now one. Like the former app (SkyDrive) – OneDrive offers 7 GB of free storage space for every new user. It is the kind of service that competes with Google, Dropbox and others.
Among the features brought the new app there is now the possibility to automatically upload your photos to the cloud. It is a feature that the competition has been offering for a while. Still Microsoft is willing to throw in an extra 3 GB of storage to anyone activating the service. There are also 500 MB to gain for any referral. The app works fine, looks OK and seems fast enough not to trouble users working in professional areas. You can now get it from the Play Store.
