Skydrive gets updated for iOS with photo uploads and increased security

Microsoft has finally updated Skydrive on iOS and in the process made it iOS 7 friendly and allows automatic photo uploads over wifi or using mobile data.

If you’re concerned about SkyDrive storage space, then you can ask the app to automatically resize photos instead of uploading originals. The app also enables an additional feature for those using Windows 8.1 and an iPhone. SkyDrive automatically pulls out any text captured in a photo using OCR, and the built-in Smart Search in Windows 8.1 will surface that text in search results.

If you’re an Office user then there’s also some improvements for opening up documents from SkyDrive on iOS. You can now select a document and open it directly in Office Mobile or OneNote, instead of loading a viewer inside the app. The app now supports the new two stage sign-in interface that Microsoft is using.
