OneDrive opens up for third-party apps
Microsoft’s cloud service OneDrive got updated to version 4.1.3, currently available for Windows Phone 8.1 devices. The update looks small, but it is indeed very significant as OneDrive opens up for third-party applications so users will soon be able to access and save files directly from other apps to the Cloud. Of course, OneDrive’s openness means that all interested developers will have to tweak their codes using the Windows Phone APIs and update the apps in the coming weeks or months.
Microsoft believes that the future in the Cloud is bright and that’s why the company is trying to integrate OneDrive into Windows Phone. You can update OneDrive to version 4.1.3 which also got some bug fixes and performance improvements. The new version is currently available for those of you who have installed the ‘Developers Preview’ build or have bought one of the new Windows Phone 8.1 handsets on the market – Nokia Lumia 630 or Lumia 930.
OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive) lets you store and share files, documents, photos and more. Once you’ve uploaded files to the cloud they can be accessed on all devices as the services is available for all platforms including Mac, PC, Android and iOS.
