SkyDrive APIs for Docs and Photos—now ready to cloud enable apps on Windows 8, Windows Phone and more

With the announcements on Windows Store we
wanted to share new work we were doing to help developers on Windows, Windows
Phone and other platforms use SkyDrive in their applications. A few months ago
as part of the preview of Windows Live for Windows
8, we announced the availability of the developer preview, the next version of
the Live Connect APIs and the newly created Live SDK. A major
change to the API was to address feedback we’d gotten from developers about
access to SkyDrive. The primary change for SkyDrive was providing the ability
for applications to fully access, upload and share documents, photos and videos
from a user’s cloud storage in SkyDrive.
