Microsoft® SkyDrive to have desktop apps for Windows®
In a report published by Brazilian website Gemind, Microsoft may launch SkyDrive desktop applications for Windows. Dedicated apps for Mac OS X are also in the offing. Gemind carried screenshots of paid storage options that are likely to be introduced for SkyDrive Cloud service along with the Windows and OS X apps. The paid storage options that will be offered include plans for 20GB, 50GB, and 100GB.
According to Gemind, it will cost you $10 to get 20GB storage space, $25 for 50GB, and $50 for 100GB. Analysts believe that SkyDrive software for Windows will be different from Windows Live Mesh that can be used to sync files from Windows-based computers and Macs in a 5GB Cloud.
If rumors are to be believed, Microsoft might merge SkyDrive and Windows Live Mesh. Presently, Microsoft has apps for Windows Phone and iPhone, with a free Cloud storage space of 25GB.
