SkyDrive has slowly worked its way into my collection of backup apps since I first started using the service. In desktop mode I'll probably stick with the SkyDrive folder, but I do like the Windows 8 app when on the Start screen. It's likely a "must" backup and sharing app for SkyDrive users on tablets and other mobile devices where there is no folder mode.

The most popular Windows 8 apps of all, by an order-of-magnitude, are the ones that get rid of Windows 8 so that it looks more like Windows 7. Sad.
