Skydrive-logo-200.png is a Microsoft service that allow you to store files into a cloud in order to be automatically available from your phone and computers. You can share large files and photos or documents with your friends or collegues. Although the service is available for many platforms such as Windows, Mac, iOS, Android all you need to access to your content is a web browser.
This article is focused on the most interesting feature, the mobile access.

Live Connect

Live Connect provides developers a set of controls and APIs that enable applications to integrate sign in with the user’s Microsoft account and enable users to access information from SkyDrive, Hotmail, and Messenger. At time of writing these APIs are not included by default on Windows Phone SDK.
