Microsoft is rolling out another update to its SkyDrive Windows Phone client today. Not a huge amount has changed in the latest version but it does bring some welcome graphical changes.
The logo has been updated to now fall in line with that seen on the web and on the desktop version of the client, gone is the swish and onwards with the ‘flattening’. It is also adhering more to the Metro feel, dropping the rather dull skeuomorphic yellow folder icons and replacing them with their authentically digital counterparts. Yes, that means blue squares to you and me.
Out with the skeuomorphic and in with the new!
Besides the cosmetic differences, I don’t see too much else here that’s changed. Some have been hoping that multiple files could be uploaded at the same time but this does not seem to be here. I look forward to seeing the client enable this feature, so I may upload full size images to my Skydrive, rather than make do with the automatically downsized and uploaded versions.You should automatically get the update notification on your phone but if you cannot wait to get the update then just browse for it in the marketplace and once found you should then see an option to update.
You can download SkyDrive from the Marketplace. Have fun, if you come across anything I missed please let me know in the comments bellow.
