SkyDrive for Windows Phone gets 2.0 upgrade

On Sunday, Microsoft released the first non-beta version of Skype for Windows Phone users. That's not all the company was up to in terms of new Windows Phone software releases. Microsoft also uploaded a 2.0 version of its SkyDrive cloud file storage app for Windows Phone devices as well. It's now available for download via the Windows Phone Marketplace.

In terms of new features, the page on the Marketplace web site doesn't point out anything specifically that's been added in the 2.0 version of Skydrive. WPCentral.com notes that the Skydrive update does allow users to delete and move multiple files at once, which is something that a lot of frequent SkyDrive users will appreciate. Also, the 2.0 version lets users manage their SkyDrive permissions for folders and files directly from within the Windows Phone app.

Another new feature in the new app version lets users choose friends in their phone's People Hub to share SkyDrive files and even allows users to give editing privileges to those friends. Finally, the 2.0 version of the app has some user interface changes for dialogs and menu choices.

A couple of months ago, there were rumors that Microsoft was developing some Windows and Mac apps for SkyDrive but those apps have yet to materialize.
