The Good SkyDrive has a sleek, Windows 8-style interface and dead simple controls.
The Bad Lacks the capability to move files between folders and edit documents from the app. No security features.
The Bottom Line If you're a Microsoft SkyDrive user, then by all means, download this attractive and useful app. Just don't expect to use it for editing Office documents.
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.
OneDrive's Android app gives you the same sleek cloud storage as theand iOS apps, albeit with a few less features. Still, it's easy to use and sports a clean design. Also, if you have a Windows 8 PC, it's easy to access the OneDrive files you upload from the app thanks to the OneDrive integration in the operating system. The Android app is free to download, and users get 7GB of free storage. You'll need a Microsoft account to get started.
