In our never-ending quest to find the perfect cloud storage solution, Microsoft’s SkyDrive is officially a desktop app for Windows and Mac. The free app went live this morning and will provide a native desktop interface for those files you have to access everywhere, for a price.
Yes, I said it’s a free app, but it will cost you. Before today, if you had a Live account you could have netted a cool 25GBs of cloud storage with SkyDrive. Today, Microsoft not only announced the inevitable release of their desktop app but also the new limitations – 7GB of free storage. Sure for the vast majority of people, 7GB will be more than enough but that’s a big step back in terms of what was available just a day ago (editor’s note: It looks like my account has gone from a 25GB account to a 7GB account).
In either case, we’ll reserve our opinions on the app itself until we get a chance to kick the tires a bit.
