  1. Allow OneDrive sync to removable media on Android

    The android app cannot see the sd card on android phones. I keep music, photos, etc on the sd card which OneDrive can't access. This makes OneDrive unusable. As a note, dropbox supports sd.

    • Support for multiple personal OneDrive accounts in mobile app

      at the very least, it would be a little more helpful if you had a "switch accounts" button on the main menu that saved usernames of other personal accounts to make it easier to sign out and into a different personal account. Free Gmail on the web does it that way.

      • Show full file/folder name

        I know lots of apps use the ellipsis/three dots (...) when the text reaches a character limit, but I think it's a little annoying when you have to go to the properties of the file/folder just to see it's full name. Just make a new type of view (detailed view?) or make it as an option in settings.

        • Enable fingerprint as passcode

          Please enable finger print unlock as pass code instead of standard pass code, just like drop box does. No offense! It's just my suggestion.

            • Sorting default

              It would be nice if the android app would use the same sorting default as the one set in our OneDrive on the web. As of right now, we have to sort every folder manually since the app's default is by icons.

              Would also be nice to set a default sorting for the app with just one tap that would sort it all from the root to the last subdirectory.

                • Add options of wifi-only and pause (all) for uploading

                  Sometimes, one needs to upload big but not urgent files so it's just not worth it to use too much cellular data, so then the wifi-only option would be great. And in the same circumstance of not urgent files uploading, pausing the upload temperarily for some urgent need of quick network usage is also convenient.

                    • Enable open all file types

                      Currently OneDrive for Android has an artifical limit on what files you can open. It would be very useful if that block was removed so that any file can be opened as long as there is an app installed that supports that file extension.

                      For example, currently you cannot open *.kbdx files even though you have keepassdroid (http://www.keepassdroid.com/) installed that handles that file extension. keepassdroid is open source so you can check its manifest (https://github.com/bpellin/keepassdroid/blob/master/AndroidManifest.xml) to see that it properly registers to handle *.kbdx files and you can verify that it works by opening such a…

                          • Make Android onedrive pdf viewer better or remove it

                            Hi,

                            Trying to work with pdfs stored on onedrive through the Android app is incredibly frustrating.

                            There is a giant black bar at the top with nothing other than a back button and a large orange circle for annotation tools. This makes seeing the pdf very hard as these UI elements get in the way.

                            Also there is no search capability.

                            Either make this viewer better or remove it so we can use some other android pdf viewer. Actually we should be able to use any other pdf viewer and there is no way to do so currently and this…

                              the thumbnails in the android app for pictures are too big. it would be better if you can change the size or the count per row. instead of 2 big pictures 4 small pictures.

                                • Separate folders when automatically uploading from multiple sources on mobile

                                  Within the Android app, OneDrive suggests you backup photos from multiple apps/folders/sources on your phone. This is a good feature to keep everything synced with the cloud, however it is very disorganized to throw all of these files in the base Camera Roll folder. Each source (every app/folder) should have it's own folder within Camera Roll. They all have different naming conventions, so it's difficult to dissect which photo came from which app.

                                  • Allow opening files with associated apps

                                    Currently if you try to view or open a text or html file in the Android app, you get an error, e.g. with the html Viewer:

                                    Webpage not available

                                    The webpage at file:///data/data/com.microsoft.skydrive/no_backup/stream_cache/useraccount/146089/default.htm could not be loaded because:

                                    net::ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND

                                    Looks like a p0 scenario to me and I am surprised it doesn't work.

                                        • Reduce memory usage while running in the background

                                          It is a bit silly that OneDrive for Android uses on average 64MB of RAM when just sitting idle in the background.

                                          OneDrive support even refused to answer why it needs to force itself to stay running in the background all the time so if it actually isn't needed the high memory usage is even worse. Forcing an app to remain running all the time if it isn't needed is called "one of the worst memory management mistakes an app can make" in the Android SDK documentation.
