Even though SkyDrive users were very happy with Microsoft’s cloud storage client, they went the extra mile and developed a better tools for work purposes. Those who need to save documents in their cloud account at work or in school can now do so with ease, by using Microsoft’s SkyDrive Pro app.

Microsoft has just released SkyDrive Pro for mobile devices, so users of Windows 8 or iOS can download the app and use it just like before. We are glad to see this service expanding to other platforms, as the user base of mobile devices is very large.

SkyDrive Pro app Available for Windows 8 and iOS


The SkyDrive pro app can be now downloaded for free from the Windows Store for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, as well as on the iTunes Store for the iOS version of SkyDrive Pro. Keep in mind that if you plan on using SkyDrive Pro on iOS or Windows 8, you will need an Office 365 or SharePoint Online valid account.

SkyDrive Pro has received a number of upgrades for its debut in the mobile world. For Windows 8 and WIndows 8.1 users, it has a much better integration with the other apps that they have on their computers and an overhauled user interface that looks much better and allows users to organize their files easily with different filters and criteria.

Sharing files is also very easily done in the SkyDrive Pro app, but one feature has not been added: offline support for files. While Windows 8/8.1 users will say it’s not that big of a deal, as they can use the desktop client, other mobile users, including those that use Windows RT are hoping for this feature to be added shortly.


Interestingly enough, SkyDrive Pro for Android is not yet available. We don’t know when it will be released but we hope that Microsoft has not forgotten the biggest mobile platform. We will update you as soon as we will find out when the SkyDrive Pro Android app will be available.

We hope to see Microsoft’s SkyDrive Pro app on all the mobile platforms and with even better features than it has now. They are already on the right path and with a few additions of features, Microsoft SkyDrive and SkyDrive pro will be common names when it comes to cloud storage.
