  1. Ability to download a folder on the Windows Phone app

    I use Onedrive for many things, including for hosting my music on the cloud. It allows me to quickly download some music on my phone from the cloud. Today I realised that it is not possible to download a folder from the WP app, only files. So in my example, I had to open the folder (an album), to select all the songs in it, then to download it.

    Not a big deal, but it made me realize it would be an easy improvement to allow the user to download the folder directly.

    • Choose "Sort By" default in OneDrive

      Being able to change the default option for sorting folders by name, date, etc. yourself. Currently I have to go to each folder and choose how I want to sort the contents but would like to set a default (for example name ascending) and it will always show files within each folder in the same way

      • Option for turn on/off transparent tile.

        Some of us want transparent tile, but some prefer blue tile, including me. There should be an option to turn transparent tile on/off.

              • Application design

                I am sorry to say but the new design has not improved the experience as it should have. The hamburger menus is still there which is annoying. I should not have to explain this to a design team. But here is the thing. Android does not have any menu other than the hamburger menu where all options are stacked. Windows phone has the '3 dots' menu already. Adding the hamburger menu makes it confusing and more importantly look like an android knock off. We windows phone users are disappointed. Please fix it fast!

                  • think about the integration with Skype, WhatsApp ,Contacts ,and other apps.

                    We know that Onedrive is seamless integration with Office ,Windows 8.1, Photo,Outlook,Calender...

                    but what about other Microsoft products and other apps in windows store for example:

                    1-are we need more integrity with Skype ?
                    2-are we need more integrity with internet explorer to save the history and favorite ? becouse maybe the system down or hacked how can we backup the pages from internet explorer ?
                    3-are we need more integrity with WhatsApp ? of course we need like the integrity between WhatsApp and Icloud in IOS.
                    4-are we need to backup the contacts from IOS and Android to help…

                    • no material design button

                      As an application of this type you don't change between OneDrive business and OneDrive personal every second and you don't see the used storage every second, I'd make another swipe screen with into the graphic of used storage, the title will be " OneDrive personal" or " OneDrive business" and the button to switch to the other OneDrive. In my opinion the button in material design and the tile of the app home page are just wasted space. Plus make the transparent tile.

                        • Lock Screen

                          Integrate OneDrive to the Lock Screen.

                          I like the option to show random photos or collages of the instagram and facebook app. But the majority of my photos are in OneDrive.

                          You could/should add a similar option, where I select some folders and the app show random photos in those folders in my lock screen, or create a collage with them.

                          • Allow one drive to sync to Windows Phones.

                            Give us the option Allowing one drive to sync to Windows Phones like it does on a desktop. You gave us the ability put a 256 GB sd card in our phone let us use it. Also give option to allow Onenote to sync everything onto Windows Phone, instead of having to open every notebook section and wait for it to download. Some of us don't live in a big ol city with gigibit connection.

                              On ios moments, geo tagging is amazing... Rather than just London for rxampe it will say St pauls Cathedral, London. OneDrive and windows phone just shows city location.

                                • password protection

                                  There's a four digit password on my OneDrive app that secured access to my personal files. But I just came across the online album option in Photos that doesn't require the password to access my OneDrive photos folder by folder. That kills the privacy. Also, the password on OneDrive stays on Windows Phone app. Written synced with laptop, there's no password there. My files are free to view. No logout either. Please fix asap. Privacy is always the top concern.

                                  • Bring back animations to the app

                                    The new update has no WP flip animations when diving into folders. They were great for usability, a visual metaphor for going deeper into the folders and flipping back up from them. Now it's just clunky as the interface changes with no animation. Another lovely backwards step brought over by your Android loving staff? Why don't you just get it over with and go work for Android if you love bad design so much?

                                        • Add the option to Uninstall Onedrive from Windows Phone.

                                          Please add the option to Uninstall Onedrive from Windows Phone. With only 5 GB free storage for WP users, it will be a very useless app. As I' m gonna use a third party app like BOX, Mega or Dropbox (still have to decide) it gives me OCD to have 2 apps of the same kind.
