Visual Tour: Microsoft SkyDrive For Android

Android apps have the very useful built-in ability to share data with other applications and services. My Android apps added SkyDrive as an option after I installed it. However, as you can see in the two screenshots above, my Documents To Go app was unable to send a file to SkyDrive. SkyDrive's error message claimed that the file name had characters that it does not allow. I had no problem uploading the same file to Dropbox.
