Microsoft has released SkyDrive apps for the Windows Phone Mango and the Apple iOS platforms that allows users to access, share or remove files stored in SkyDrive folders.
The Windows Phone and iOS apps allow SkyDrive users to browse all files and folders regardless of file type. It also allows users to grant view-only or editing permissions for individual files or folders by using the same 'share a link' option found when accessing the service at SkyDrive.com.
Windows Phone Mango has already integrated aspects of Windows SkyDrive into the Office and Picture hubs, but does not allow users to browse through all the files stored in their drives.
"While the support for SkyDrive on Windows Phone is extensive, Microsoft believes you should have access to your personal content no matter which device you use," the company said in an announcement on Tuesday.
The mobile apps also let users fully manage folder structures within SkyDrive, allowing deletion and creation of folders, projects, photo albums or individual items.
The releases build on improvements to SkyDrive announced at the end of November, which added things like 'app-centric sharing', file management options and an HTML 5 upload tool. It had previously used a Silverlight uploader.
The apps are available to download from the Windows Phone Marketplace and Apple App Stores. The Windows Phone version is available in every region where the devices are sold, Microsoft said and the iOS version is available in 32 languages.
On Monday, Microsoft also announced that an iPad-compatible version of OneNote is available to download, bringing new features to the tablet. The company also released Microsoft Lync forWindows Phone Mango at the same time.
