CloudOn, the service which lets you edit Microsoft Office files on your tablet, has updated its iPad and Android apps with support for the iPad mini and Nexus 7 as well as the ability to save to Microsoft's SkyDrive.

The iPad app is now on version 3.0 (free, iTunes), which sees CloudOn introduce support for the iPhone 5, the iPad mini and the iPad Touch, while there is also now the functionality for saving to Microsoft's SkyDrive. The news means that users can now save their Word, Excel, PowerPoint files to Dropbox, Box, Google Drive or SkyDrive.

At the same time, the Silicon Valley app developer also rolled out a new version of its Android app (free, Google Play). The update sees the software now support Android 4.1 and tablets that run it like Google's Nexus 7, while SkyDrive saving is also available.

Furthermore, the update brings about another new feature for Android called FileSpace, which allows users to see a log of all the activity on all files including edits, notifications and notes. This functionality has been with the firm's iPad app since October.
