OneDrive, formally known as SkyDrive, is Microsoft’s cloud storage solution. It ties in neatly to Office 365 and Microsofts full desktop Office applications which makes this an attractive option for business users. Apps are available for Windows OS, Android, iOS and Mac. In fact, OneDrive is the only cloud storage option that offers full Windows Phone support (for obvious reasons).

The OneDrive app adopts a very minimalist UI, making it very easy to navigate. The main screen lists your folders and files while a basic navigation lives at the bottom.

In order to edit your documents, mobile and tablet users have the option to use Microsoft’s Office apps in conjunction with OneDrive, but to do so would require an Office 365 subscription as well. Without that, you can only use the OneDrive app to view your content. Those using the web version of OneDrive can make basic edits from within the browser.

What you get:
To get you off the ground, Microsoft gives you 15GB of free space, although existing Office 365 users get 1TB at no extra cost. 100 GB will set you back $1.99 (£1.24) per month, 200GB costs $3.99 (£2.50) and the 1TB option is priced at a very respectable $6.99 (£4.38) per month, making this the cheapest 1TB storage option in this article.
