Skydrive 2.0 released for Windows Phone just in time for desktop app rollout

Microsoft is taking its cloud storage app Skydrive to a new place today — the desktop — but in order to do so it had to flesh out its existing Windows Phone mobile app. Skydrive 2.0 launched over the weekend, expanding its functionality to coincide with some backend changes Microsoft has made for easier link sharing.

More importantly, the app has been beautified, making it easy to look through folders of images, documents and music. You can set permissions for files and folders from within the app, too, a long-requested feature for Office collaborators.
