Microsoft Office 2013 has plenty of new features and serious design, UI changes. The importance of cloud has increased and Microsoft has given all users with Microsoft account, free skydrive cloud storage of about 7 GB. In Office 2013, we can save our files, documents, presentations directly on the cloud instead of local drive. When we go to save menu in office applications like Word, we get option to save the document to skydrive directly from there. But, what about other similar services like Dropbox, Google Drive.
