Microsoft updates SkyDrive for Mac

Microsoft updates SkyDrive for Mac

 

Devoted mac users may still think of Microsoft as an enemy due to that whole “Mac vs. Windows” thing.However,it would’ve been a lie if we said that the guys from Redmond don’t listen to us.Last month Mac SkyDrive was released and it had one really annoying fault,that the company has fixed in an update rolling out now.

According to the Windows Blog,a new version of the SkyDrive application for Mac and Windows will be coming out “over the next week or so” to add up to the recent update to the Windows Phone version and a bug-fix update coming to iOS shortly.The nice thing about it all is that for Mac and Windows users there is nothing to download – the updates will appear just like magic,when the time comes.

For many Mac users on OS X Lion, the biggest change is probably one of the smallest for Microsoft to make: “SkyDrive for OS X Lion no longer shows an app icon in the dock when running,” the blog notes. “We’ve definitely heard the feedback that it wasn’t necessary.”

Also,the Mac SkyDrive folder “now updates quicker and more reliably when changes are made on other devices,including SkyDrive.com,” and Microsoft has raised the ceiling on the total number of files that apps can create there.In case you didn’t know there was a limit – yes,there used to be one – 150,000,and now it has increased to 10 million!This should unblock some power users from easily adding lots of files to their SkyDrive folder.”

Unfortunately, heading to the SkyDrive apps page downloads the exact same version from April 18 — users should be keeping an eye out for build number 16.4.4111.0525, which is the one that will automatically update itself, assuming you’ve got SkyDrive running, of course.
