SkyDrive rebrands to OneDrive
SkyDrive updates to One Drive with new storage bonuses and monthly plans
After a court battle, Microsoft had to rename its cloud service SkyDrive and the changes are now rolling out to Windows Phone devices. The old SkyDrive shows a new update available for download and after installation the app transforms into OneDrive, which is the new official name of the Microsoft’s cloud storage service. Alongside the re-branding, OneDrive brings several enhancements and bug fixes.
OneDrive comes with new thumbnail view and improved shared files view. From now on, users can share multiply items at once and pin folders to the Start Screen. OneDrive also lets customers open files using third party applications.
OneDrive offers new storage bonuses. For each user referred to the service, you will get 500MB of bonus, but not more than 5GB in total or up to 10 users. You will get 3GB of bonus space if you enable camera roll back-up to save photos automatically. For all of you who want more space, additional cloud storage is available for purchase. Plans start from $4.49 per month for 50GB (or $25 annually) up to $11.49 monthly or $100 annually for 100GB.
