Continuing with today’s line of app updates, Microsoft has posted a new version of its SkyDrive client for the iPhone and iPad. The update brings the app to version 4.0, and includes a handful of improvements and an all new design for iOS 7.

The client itself allows you to upload photos, videos and other files to Microsoft’s cloud service. And today’s release adds Camera Backup for automatic media uploads, improved integration with Office Mobile for iPhone and OneNote, and more…

Here’s the full change log for 4.0:

– Camera Backup for automatically uploading photos and videos to SkyDrive
– Improved integration with Office Mobile for iPhone and OneNote, including the ability to edit Office documents
– New look and feel for iOS 7
– Bug fixes and performance improvements

I happen to love the design of iOS 7, so I’m digging SkyDrive’s new look. But those that are getting tired of the all-white spaces and flat graphics may not find it so appealing. All of the usual iOS 7 elements are here, right down to the simpler icons.

Obviously, this app won’t do you any good if you’re not using Microsoft’s SkyDrive service. But for those that are bought into the ecosystem, this looks like a solid update. If you’re interested, you can find the SkyDrive app in the App Store for free.

For those that aren’t already using the service, Microsoft offers 7GB of free space and charges just $10 per year for 20GB of storage. More info here.
