Recently, Microsoft relaunched SkyDrive as OneDrive due to some legal issues with the SkyDrive name. The launch was followed up by some promotions offering users with extra storage space, as well as the launch of the dedicated apps for various mobile platforms, including Android, iOS and Windows Phone. If you’re a Blackberry user waiting for a dedicated OneDrive app, the Canadian OEM has released it in the Blackberry App World known as “Connect to Microsoft OneDrive.”

The app is not compatible with the entire Blackberry range, but only the ones running the latest Blackberry 10 OS, including Blackberry Z30, Z10, Q10, Q5 and the luxurious Blackberry Porsche Design P9982. As the name suggests, the app give users the ability to connect with their OneDrive account and get access to their files stored in the cloud from their Blackberry device. 

“Connect to Microsoft OneDrive is a free application that allows you to create an online space to store your files so you can access them anytime and anywhere. Share your files with others, all from your BlackBerry 10 device,” the app description reads.

One of the most notable feature of the app is the ability to automatically back up pictures and videos you capture using your Blackberry device, as well as the ability to share your documents saved in the cloud. Here’s a list of features you will get with the Connect to Microsoft OneDrive app for Blackberry 10:

  • Automatically back up pictures and videos you capture on your device.
  • Share important files and documents.
  • Comment on or edit documents while you’re on the go.
  • Seamlessly and easily work with your online files on your device.

If you’re a Blackberry user (Seriously?), head over to the Blackberry App World and grab the app.
