SkyDrive users can now access the service directly from their Gmail inbox, saving email attachments to their SkyDrive or sharing files from it. This is all thanks to a collaboration announced today between Microsoft SkyDrive and Attachments.me.
SkyDrive offers some great advantages over some other cloud storage services. Most notable is its integration with Office Web Apps. Once Office documents are saved to SkyDrive, people can easily view and edit web-based versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. Attachments.me's SkyDrive integration allows users to have all of the documents they receive in email automatically sent to a folder in SkyDrive.
"Many of our users are professionals in offices that use a lot of Microsoft products," says Jesse Miller, CEO of Attachments.me, "When Microsoft announced that SkyDrive was going to be integrated with their new suite of Office Web Apps, it became obvious we needed to integrate with them."
The SkyDrive integration is an addition to the current cloud storage integrations offered by Attachments.me, including Dropbox, Box and Google Drive.
"We are happy to have Attachments.me as an early partner with SkyDrive,” says Harrison Hoffman, SkyDrive product manager at Microsoft. "Their integration will be extremely useful for our Gmail and Google Apps users."
Attachments.me is developed to make the sharing of files in email better for both the sender and the receiver. For the sender, it allows users to share files from their cloud storage solutions, without ever leaving their inbox. They also allow users to easily share large files. On the receiving end, users can setup rules to have their email attachments automatically sent to cloud storage, organized by filetype and sender. The Attachments.me application is available as an extension to Google Chrome or Firefox, and as an iPhone application. It is already used by professionals all over the world.
