SkyDrive – Microsoft’s very own personal cloud storage solution, has been quite a pleasant experience since its conception over 6 years ago. At the time, SkyDrive was more of an experimental service to separately sign up for. In April, 2012, SkyDrive became available for every single Microsoft account whether you use it or not, and is now deeply integrated into Windows 8. Sure, it doesn’t seem any better on non-Windows systems than other cloud storage system, until now. SkyDrive for iOS has brought forth a much needed feature – for me, at least.
Whoa! What a keynote it was. It has been quite some time since we saw iOS grow immensely from its previous version – about 9 months ago. Really, has it been only 9 months? Here I was wondering what it was Apple could ever do to improve on the already fantastic iOS. For all intents and purposes, iOS seemed to have hit a plateau. That was until today when iOS 7 was finally revealed to the developers at WWDC and all of us who bothered to watch the keynote speech. Wait till you find out all its news, can you?
Well we can’t. Here are the highlights on iOS 7.
After making a custom stylus for capacitive screens, I decided to go try the same on devices other than my own. At present the only touchscreen device I own is a Nokia Lumia 800 that I couldn’t use it both as a camera and the test device. The iPad mini would make a good testbed, if I had one. So, a friend offered to let me use his device to test out the stylus. He also helped me make the video and I thank him for that. As soon as he decides to stop being anonymous you’ll know who to thank too.
