Moments ago we brought you the news that SkyDrive might be set to drop a new application for Windows and Macs that will allow users to have Dropbox-like functionality with their files. That application is available now.

According to Microsoft, this is what the app can be used for:

  • Access your SkyDrive right from Windows Explorer—photos, documents, and all your other important files.
  • Quickly add new files to SkyDrive by dragging them to the SkyDrive folder.
  • Easily organize your files and folders in SkyDrive, just like any other folder.
  • Connect back to your PC if you forget to put something in SkyDrive.
