Microsoft Adds Live Tile Support For SkyDrive Windows App
Now the tile for the SkyDrive app will be useful for more than just launching the app, by providing at-a-glance info on what’s going on in your SkyDrive. Whenever you add new files to SkyDrive, the app tile shows you relevant details. If you add a document, you’ll see the document name, along with when it was added, and what folder it’s in. If you add photos, the tile gives you a nice view of those photos. It's certainly a nice feature, and Live Tiles in general are one of the standout items that help differentiate Windows RT and Windows 8 from the crowd. Will more companies write their apps to support live notifications? One can hope.
