Microsoft adds camera backup feature to SkyDrive on iPhone and iPad

Microsoft announced that it’s updating the SkyDrive app for iPhone and iPad. According to the company announcement, the app brings a new feature called: “camera backup” that adds ability to upload photos and videos automatically to Microsoft’s SkyDrive from any iPhone and iPad, which apparently was a highly requested feature.

This new functionality can be configured to upload content only when connected using a Wi-Fi connection and iOS users also have the option to send images in full resolution or compressed using a metered connection.

The software giant additionally improved the SkyDrive integration and Office Mobile to make it more native to iOS7. One of the changes Microsoft is including in this update is the ability to documents to open directly on Office Mobile or OneNote, instead of using Quicklook viewer.
