    Why isn't there an app that gives me access to Windows Live Photo Gallery and/or skydrive? There are apps for Picasa (which should be built into Android) and Flickr, but not Windows Live Photo Gallery. These two services are free, offer more storage than competitors, and are just as full featured as it's competitors. I would love an app that gave me access to these two services.

    Right now I'm using Picasa for my photos because I can access them from my EVO with an app. I would much rather use Live Photo Gallery for the storage (and no upload limits for free) but I'm not because I can't get to them on my phone.

    Does anyone know if anyone is working on something like this? If so I would pay money.

    I live in hope (no matter how delusional) that Microsoft are working on something like this .

    It only makes sense for them to integrate on every platform they can.

    Hope you are right ... I particularly want them to integrate an Android multi-touch OneNote syncing to Live Apps. I know Evernote is pretty good but I am totally absorbed in the OneNote universe and find myself copy and pasting things from Evernote into Onenote ... clunky solution.

    The goal for microsoft, google, and apple is to ft u tied into their particular ecosystem. Given google's openness they probably wouldn't block a microsoft app.

    I just think 25gb of free storage is awesome and would love to be able to use it more effectively.

    Me too ... Microsoft actually have all the ingredients of a killer cloud operation, they just seem to make it clunky at the last minute. Personally I would like to sync across multiple cloud solutions and utilise the best of breed in each. I never was one to wear any one designer head to toe and like to be able to pick and choose. Time will tell.

    I agree. I read an article somewhere about how microsoft has all of the ingredients to have the "killer cloud" but need to polish it a little to integrate it better and make the interface a little cleaner. I liked the integration of the Kin with the Studio, and I wouldn't expect them to have something like that in a non-microsoft product, but at least an app or two that allows some integration would be awesome.

    Our team is bringing OneNote to other platforms by developing our own note taking application, which is compatible with OneNote. It's called MobileNoter, versions for iPhone and iPad are already available and Android version is now in development. We are also going to release an Evernote-2-OneNote file converter soon.
    If you need any additional information or want to participate in Android version beta-testing, please let me know.
