Microsoft SkyDrive Updated With New Apps, More Storage

Google’s cloud storage offering is rumored to be launching today and it looks like the competition is trying to beef up their services in anticipation. Microsoft has updated their SkyDrive cloud storage with new apps and more storage for new users.

First time users can get up to 7GB free storage, and you can buy more if you need it. SkyDrive is offering packages ranging from $10 a year for 20GB to $50 a year for 100GB.

You can access SkyDrive from most web browsers, and MS also offers apps for Windows, OSX, iOS, and Windows Phone. The iOS and Windows Phone apps got an update yesterday. You can now upload multiple photos or videos at a single go as well as share files via links. You can also manage your account from inside the app, including creating new folders and deleting files.

Google Drive to Launch Next Week w\ 5GB Free Cloud Storage

Google’s cloud storage solution is tipped to go live next week, and some of the apps and supporting information have already leaked.

The Next Web is reporting that Google Drive is likely to launch next Tuesday where it will be joining Dropbox, Amazon, Apple, and others in a very crowded market. Like its competitors, Google Drive will offer a free entry level service with 5GB of storage. That’s more than Dropbox’s free plan, but it’s also less than what Amazon offers (where you can get 20GB of storage for under a dollar)

Speaking of apps, Google Drive is rumored to have apps for OSX, Windows, iOS, and Android. What’s more, the OSX app has already leaked. TechCrunch found and installed it last night. It doesn’t work, of course, but the app does exist.
