Are you missing shared folders from your friends on the SkyDrive iPhone app?

SkyDrive is a pretty awesome file sharing and sync tool available for free from Microsoft.  

With Windows 8 around the corner, this and the new Outlook.com mail service are going to be more and more popular.   Anyway, I recently replaced Dropbox and Sugarsync with Skydrive mainly because I am sure that this service from Microsoft is better and will be far more popular with the masses ongoing….

But I had one problem, related to people Sharing their SkyDrive account with me.   No matter what, when they shared it would show up on the web app –  but not on the iphone app.

If you too are missing folders in the “Shared with me” section of the SkyDrive iPhone app, then you might want to take a look at this thread on the Microsoft Answers forum.   As you can see, for me the fix strangely enough was to change my Microsoft Account from the @hotmail.com domain to the @outlook.com domain and relogon.

Weird…   but a workaround fix all the same!

 

EDIT:  Microsoft have informed me on the thread that this is not a fix, but on the three tests I have done it has fixed it each time.   Take from that what you will 🙂
