Visual Tour: Microsoft SkyDrive For Android
The app's default view is tiled, similar to the "modern" (a.k.a. Metro) tile design used by Windows 8. The tile view provides few details about files and folders. If the file is an image, you're given a thumbnail of the image. If the file is a Microsoft Office document, all you'll see is an icon indicating the Office app used to create the file.
You can see a lot more information about your files by viewing them in list mode. Tap the list icon--the first of the five shortcuts in the upper right of the screen--to see (above) the full file name, file size, modification date, and shared status, although not file extensions.
The remaining four icon shortcuts after list, from left, let you do the following:
- Upload a media file.
- Create a SkyDrive folder
- Refresh SkyDrive's files and folders
