Last month we expelled preview versions of SkyDrive for Windows as good as OS X Lion, along with large updates to a iOS as good as Windows Phone apps. We additionally voiced a new, some-more stretchable approach to personal clouded cover storage which allows energy users to get one some-more paid storage up to 100GB.
It’s been an implausible month since! Our idea was to set up a clouded cover which seamlessly connects your files to a apps as good as inclination we make use of each day, as good as we’ve been anxious with a reply so far. In only a couple of weeks, some-more people were regulating SkyDrive apps than have used Mesh. People regulating SkyDrive for Windows or Mac have been right away a most intent users – syncing files opposite multiform devices, sharing with SkyDrive.com, as good as operative together with Office Web Apps. At a same time, we go upon to attend as good as reply to your feedback opposite forums, blogs, Twitter, as good as Facebook.
We not long ago rolled out an refurbish to a SkyDrive app for Windows Phone which bound a couple of teenager bugs, as good as we have a tiny bug-fix-only refurbish to a iOS app upon a approach as well. Today we’re additionally starting to pull updates to a SkyDrive apps for Windows desktop as good as for Mac, which will crop up automatically upon your Personal Computer or Mac over a march of a subsequent week or so. You don’t need to do anything, as a updates start automatically in a background.
Here have been a couple of of a improvements as good as fixes in a updates:
- SkyDrive for Windows desktop will energy a cold brand new underline in a arriving Windows 8 Release Preview, accessible a initial week of June. Right from a Photos app in Windows 8, we can fetch photos stored upon your alternative PCs which have SkyDrive commissioned – no make a difference where we have been or how most terabytes of photos we have stored upon a Personal Computer we have been accessing. We’ll have some-more to contend about this shortly, so stay tuned.
- SkyDrive for OS X Lion no longer shows an app idol in a wharf when running. We’ve unequivocally listened a feedback which it wasn’t necessary.
- Your SkyDrive printed matter right away updates some-more quick as good as reliably when changes have been done upon alternative devices, together with SkyDrive.com.
- The extent upon a series of sum files in a SkyDrive printed matter combined by a apps has been lifted from 150,000 to a whopping 10 million! This should unblock a little energy users from simply adding lots of files to their SkyDrive folder.
- We done lots of not as big bug fixes to urge altogether reliability.
Our first idea via this preview duration for a desktop apps is to unequivocally spike a fundamentals. This equates to we wish a synchronization routine to be quick as good as dependable, as good as for your SkyDrive printed matter to “just work,” so which it simply feels similar to magic.
By a way, if you’d similar to to see if you’re using a ultimate build, we can see a set up series by clicking Settings (in Windows, this is in a right-click menu for a SkyDrive complement tray icon, as good as upon a Mac, it’s upon a focus menu) as good as afterwards About. The set up series to demeanour for is 16.4.4111.0525. But again, if you’re still using an comparison set up (if a final 4 numbers have been reduce than 0525), there’s zero we need to do. You’ll get a refurbish automatically in a subsequent week or so, supposing a SkyDrive app is running.
Thanks for all of your await as good as good feedback over a final month!
