Microsoft adds camera backup feature to SkyDrive iOS app

While we are still waiting for Microsoft to come up with a new name for its SkyDrive cloud storage service, the company has been busying updating its features. Today brings word of a new version of the SkyDrive iOS app that added a welcome new mode: camera backup.

Basically, the new version lets iPhone and iPad users automatically upload any photos and/or videos on their device to their SkyDrive account. The feature can be adjusted so that the uploads happen only when the device is connected to a WiFi network and images can be sent at full resolution or at a reduced file size to save on cell data.

In addition, there's been some changes for Office Mobile for iPhone and OneNote for iOS. Microsoft says, "With this update, when you're using Office Mobile to select a recent doc from SkyDrive, you can open it directly in Office Mobile or OneNote, instead of the Quicklook viewer that we offer today. After you make edits, you can save your changes back to SkyDrive."

The SkyDrive website has also added a way to preview how any photos will look when shared on a Facebook page. Microsoft says, "when a user shares one or more photos, they now have the option of creating a new Facebook picture album or adding the images to an existing one. If a new one is made, the user can name it and establish which of their Facebook friends can see it before the images are shared."
