SkyDrive API updated, lets 3rd party apps access it

Microsoft has just added some improvements to its SkyDrive service, making it play nice with 3rd party apps. SkyDrive, which is one of the key selling points of Windows Phone platform, now grants non-Microsoft apps full access to SkyDrive, allowing them to upload and share all kinds of files.

This should allow the development of much richer WP apps that don’t take a lot of space. And since the Microsoft platform refuses to allow user replacement of the microSD cards (where available), storage is quite valuable there.

We even got the first app to make use of the new SkyDrive functionality. The free document scanner dubbed HandyScan lets you upload scanned documents to the cloud.
