Microsoft has updated its SkyDrive App for Windows. The new features include a visual notification… users simply click the white SkyDrive icon, to easily check if their SkyDrive is up to date. If there are more files to download, SkyDrive will notify you how much and for how long.
Microsoft also announced the new SkyDrive logo… which it claims is a more consistent experience…
We designed SkyDrive to provide Windows customers access to important files anywhere. With the upcoming release of Windows 8, the time was right to redesign the SkyDrive logo. The refreshed logo is a natural evolution of the work we’re doing across Microsoft to deliver a more consistent experience across all of our products.
Microsoft has already “Metrofied” many of its logos… so this was no surprise at all.
