Review

SkyDrive is simple, sleek, and well-integrated

Editor's note: On February 19, 2014, Microsoft changed the name of SkyDrive to OneDrive and added a few new features to the Android, iOS, and Windows Phone apps. We've updated this review with our impressions of those new features.

Microsoft's cloud storage service OneDrive gives you a place to store photos, videos, documents, and other files in the cloud, so you can access them from anywhere, on any of your devices, regardless of the platform they're running. Like competitors Dropbox and Google Drive, OneDrive keeps the files you store in it safe in case your phone is lost or your computer hard drive fails.

The OneDrive app for Windows Phone is the best mobile version of the service available. That's because OneDrive features are baked into the Windows Phone operating system, and with the app, saving, editing, organizing, and sharing files in OneDrive is seamless. The app is free to download, and users get 7GB of free storage to start.
