The SkyDrive has just announced the finalized API for the service, allowing developers to easily up and download photos, documents and videos to the service.
According to Omar Shashine, Group Program Manager for SkyDrive, HandyScan is the first company to take advantage of this new feature, allowing users to upload their scanned pictures directly to SkyDrive.
The free version features:
It also comes in a paid version which ads PDF conversion, emailing options and the ability to restore backups. The app can be found in Marketplace here.
Of course the most desired usage for SkyDrive would be music streaming and it seems Microsoft knows this, as they specifically do not support uploading MP3s to the service, supporting simple WAVs only. Bizarrely they do support video uploading and downloading in H.264 and .wmv format.
Music files can however be downloaded, if one do not mind using Microsoftâ€™s unoptimised tools for uploading the files to the service.
Microsoft is however calling for developers to create apps which take advantage of the new locker in the Sky. Besides music streaming, what else would we want Developers to create for the service? Let us know below.
