  2. Add a Clear cache button for android

    I use this app often and the cache gets bigger. Having to go into the app info and deleting everything there and having to re setup all my settings is a pain.

  4. Enable One Drive App on Android (and I Phones) to open Outlook Items (emails saved - and with attachments or not)

    One Drive application on Android does not allow opening of Outlook Items (i.e. emails saved, whether with attachments or not), stating "Sorry there are no apps installed that can open this type of file". One Drive accessed via web works perfectly allowing saved email to open and then attachments as well. Surely, should be basic requirement that One Drive app (on Android - and my guess same point on I Phones) should allow opening and viewing as well. Otherwise lose core functionality when on the move. Should also ensure can open email itself and then any attachments to that email…

  6. Make it possible to transfer photos to SD card

    Why we cannot move photos to SD card instead of internal storage because my storage on my phone is 32mega bytes and it's almost full you can't even move apps to SD card or I'm just not smart enough to do it.

  8. Enable pinning folders

    I use onedrive for cloud storage on my android. I would like to be able to pin specific folders, especially the camera roll, instead of having to repeatedly navigate through three or for extra folders.

  11. Allow me to exclude folders from synchronisation on mobile app

    Currently the android Onedrive app attempts to synchronise all my onedrive folder leaving me no option to exclude some of them. This means that my phone very quickly will be filled to the brim with about 800 Gbs of pictures. Please let me exclude folder from sync on mobile

  12. continuous video play

    I would like to have the ability to play videos continuously, as a slideshow works for photos. I hate having to prompt each video to play, especially if it is a serious of short videos taken with the same subject.

  16. Battery usage

    Recently I noticed a steep drop in my device's battery reserves. Upon reviewing battery usage statistics in the Settings menu it looks like OneDrive is, for some reason, using 21% of my battery's charge, even when the app isn't actively being used, or even launched. That's more than the OS, more than the screen - more than everything else on the device.

    While I've been fairly impresses with Microsoft's Android offerings, this is unacceptable. To see if it makes a difference to battery usage I've gone ahead and turned photo/video autoupload off. Next step is to remove the app from…

  17. How to launch Onedrive app from my app in a specific folder?

    Hey guys what's up?

    So as I said in the title. I'm trying to launch onedrive app from my app in the folder created by my app. How can I do that?

    PackageManager pm = getApplicationContext().getPackageManager();
    Intent intent = pm.getLaunchIntentForPackage("com.microsoft.skydrive");
    intent.addFlags(Intent.FLAGACTIVITYNEW_TASK);
    startActivity(intent);

    This code will launch the OneDrive app.

  18. Keywords

    It will be very nice to improve the display of keywords. At this time, when having a lot of them, it's not very easy to navigate, and it's not very fast.
    We could imagine a kind of tabs with alphabetic letters, or an index on the side to accelerate the move in the very long page of all the keywords.
    Many thanks!
