SkyDrive gets a Windows 8 look-and-feel, Android app coming soon
After giving its free e-mail service a new Windows 8-inspired coat of paint with Outlook.com—which has seen more than 10 million users sign up already—Microsoft has turned its attention to cloud storage service SkyDrive. Over the next 24 hours, the company is rolling out a new "modern" interface for SkyDrive's online component.
While Outlook.com didn't add many new features—behind the scenes, it's pretty much identical to Hotmail—SkyDrive has picked up a bunch of new capabilities in addition to its new appearance. In the Web front-end itself, SkyDrive is now searchable, including the ability to search for text within Office documents. File handling has been streamlined, giving users the ability to select multiple files and drag and drop them to move them between folders. Sorting is also smarter; there are new ordering options and a facility to save sort options on a per-folder basis.
