Access SkyDrive From Any Android Smartphone And Tablet Running Android 2.3+ Or Later.

Folks, if you are looking for a nice, dependable and easy to use online file storing (and sharing) service, I am highly recommending Microsoft’s SkyDrive. With SkyDrive you will get 7 GBs of space for FREE and can opt in to purchasing additional space if need be. This service continues to get better and better all the time and has become my main online file storage service.  I encourage you to visit the link above to learn more about SkyDrive.

As this service continues to evolve, Microsoft recently made announcement that a SkyDrive app has been developed exclusively for Android 2.3 or later.

So, if you have an Android based phone or tablet AND you are a SkyDrive user, this app is a must-have app.  I have been testing it on my Toshiba Thrive Tablet and it has performed flawlessly. I even have SkyDrive setup to access the files (and drives) on my main PC anywhere I have internet access (see recent article, Access Any File You Need From Your PC From Anywhere With The NEW SkyDrive). This option alone is like having my main PC tethered to my tablet.

With SkyDrive for Android, you can now easily access and share files on the go. You can also upload photos or videos from your phone to SkyDrive.

• Access all of your SkyDrive content including files shared with you.
• View recently used documents.
• Choose multiple photos or videos to upload from your phone.
• Share your files and photos – send a link in email or in another app.
• Open your SkyDrive files in other Android apps.
• Manage your files – delete, or create new folders.

  1. Love Skydrive! I am up to 25gb of free storage.
    Also use Dropbox and Google Drive. All three are friendly with my Android phone. Great article Rick! Take care and keep up the great articles!!


    1. G,

      Hope you are doing well… I still jump by your blog to see if anything is happening!

      SkyDrive is awesome… I too took advantage of the 25 GB offering when it came around. Google Drive (thumbs up) and Dropbox (thumbs up). Also, I don’t know if they are still offering it, but Box was giving away 50 GBs if you signed up and logged in to their service via your Android device.

      Good to hear from you….



      1. Doing great Rick. Real busy at work so not much time for blogging. Spent all summer on the weekends cutting firewood for the winter. Just got done last weekend with that.
        I got some GB’s with Box for running through android but I think I only got about 5gb doing it. I have more than enough cloud storage between the 3. I’m still a little leery of putting important stuff in the cloud and prefer multiple backups here at home.

        Take care!


  2. Skydrive on Tablet is missing the Create and Upload buttons which I have when I use skydrive on PC.
    Why is this?
