Microsoft has released a native iPhone and iPod touch application for its SkyDrive cloud storage service, allowing users to access files from SkyDrive while on the go as well as uploading photos and videos from the iOS device. The app provides access to all of a user’s personal as well as shared SkyDrive files along with a section for quick access to recently-used documents. Users can also share a link to any file via e-mail, create new folders and delete files and folders from directly within the app. SkyDrive is available from the App Store as a free download. Hotmail, Messenger and Xbox Live accounts each include SkyDrive as well, or users can sign up for a free account directly at SkyDrive.com.

Cracking app for sharing files that are a bit too large to email. The only drawback is that you cannot bulk upload to the drive so if you have multiple photographs for example, that you wish to share you must upload them one a a time.

Nice start, but the one photo at a time upload limitation is a killer.  DropBox is still the defacto go-to in this area.  No file size limitations (unlike skydrive), better file format preview support, “Open In X” support, etc all things the SkyDrive app lacks.  Still, a start.

Skydrive compresses your photos during the upload as well. Dealbreaker for me unfortunately because that 25 gb storage looked useful until I found out about this :-(
