Existing users will see the app name changed automatically, new users can sign up for the free service at or register with the whole Microsoft personal free cloud suite of Outlook for email, calendar, contact and OneDrive.

The free cloud storage can be used to store, to share, or to co-author as “one place for your photos, videos, documents, and files across all your devices”. In addition, with the mobile app on iOS, Android, Windows Phone, users can earn 3GB for using the automatic camera roll back-up feature, along with 500MB of extra space for each friend referral… If that is still not enough, there are monthly paid plans for 50GB, 100GB, and 200GB.
