Wednesday Microsoft debuted OneDrive, a revamped version of its cloud storage service (formerly called SkyDrive) that permits you to store files outside of your computer or smartphone, so that they’re accessible from any device connected to the Internet. With the news, the company also added a few new features to its OneDrive apps for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.

All three apps now automatically upload the photos and video you snap with your phone to OneDrive, so you’ll always have a backup. The mobile apps also get video transcoding, which means that when you play videos you’ve saved in your OneDrive account on your computer, the video will adapt to your Internet speed so it plays smoothly without much buffering.

Stay tuned to CNET for a full review of OneDrive for iOS, as well as updated reviews for the OneDrive apps on Windows Phone and Android.
