SkyDrive for iOS 3.0

Microsoft recently released a major and long-overdue update to its SkyDrive app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. And while the improvements in this release are no doubt notable, the big news here is that the update happened at all. As you may recall, Apple and Microsoft were involved in a poorly-disguised dispute that caused this app update to be delayed several months.

SkyDrive for iOS 3.0 is available now from the Apple App Store. According to the official description, it offers the following updates over the previous version:

Support for the latest iOS devices. SkyDrive 3.0 supports iPhone 5 and iPad Mini.

Works better with photos. Now you can download full resolution photos to your iPhone or iPad and control the size of photos you upload and download. And photo metadata is retained when you upload to SkyDrive.

Supports other iOS apps. Improved support for opening SkyDrive files in other iOS apps

Supports uploading files to SkyDrive from other apps. Improved support for uploading files to SkyDrive from other iOS apps

Updated app icons and user experience visuals. Hey, it’s been a year.

Other bug fixes. There are also many other small changes, bug fixes and performance improvements. Hey, it’s been a year.
