  1. Don't look up databases that don't exist in the background

    In adb I can see that onedrive is constantly trying to acces /data/user/com.microsoft.skydrive/files/aria/offllinestoragelow.db and offlinestorageimmediate.db even though they don't exist. Stop that.

  2. When OneDrive detects a new image folder, actually say the name of the folder in the Notification

    The feature to ask if you want to upload a folder that has photos in it is already there, but I think OneDrive should specify what the name of the folder is

  3. Show free and total disk space

    Make a tool to show how much I have disk space free and total.
    At least my Android phone app does not give any information

  4. Disable hamburger button animation for Navigation Drawer

    I want to make you aware that you made an oversight by not disabling the hamburger button animation for the Navigation Drawer. There is a bug in the design libraries which causes this animation to be enabled by default.

    I will post two paragraphs from an article hosted on a third-party site in which Roman Nurik (A well known Design Advocate that works for Google) explains that an animated hamburger button should not be used for a Navigation Drawer at all.

    "One of the solutions Google came up with between pre-L and L designs was the spinning arrow animation. As…

  5. Layout

    There is no clear distinction between folder icons and file icons in the app especially in grid layout. A simple blue vector with a count for its contents on top should suffice for folders

  7. syncing the smallest size photo or video first.

    I want OneDrive has an option to chose the syncing order. Beside default order of syncing (FIFO, the first photo taken is the first to be synced), I want to sync the small photo first then larger ones. I move a lot and Internet connection is not always stable. But the more photos synced the better for me. I often record a short clip (~500MB) together with taking lots of photos. But syncing clips always delaying syncing photos.
    In an explicit situation where a clip is syncing and other photos are taken, depending on the progress OneDrive may drop the…

  8. enable auto update option for voice recording.

    We record voice or a call for a reason, that is as much as valuable as our pics. So if there is a option to choose uplode voice recording, that will be more awesome.

  10. Jump to a date few years ago...

    Onedrive app: possibility to jump to exact day few years ago, instead of scrolling down to find those photos. My finger is almost killed now!

  11. Rename File on Upload - Android app

    Would be nice if one could rename a file before it is uploaded. Basically some apps generate files (invoices for example) with same anmes and if you need to generate 2+ files, OneDrive will fail to upload the second+ because of the name. So give us the opportunity to rename the file before it is uploaded is very important!

  13. Differentiate the additional folders in camera upload

    It's great to include those additional folders with camera upload, but sometimes apps label those folders with the same name and it's hard to tell which folder is for what app. Either having a way to preview what's in each folder or having the full folder location added to the list would be fabulous.

  14. The "upload your photos to OneDrive" was *incredibly* annoying

    The "upload your photos to OneDrive" was incredibly annoying.

    I mean, if I wasn't already doing this on another service, perhaps it was a good idea. But popping up each day, without a way to say 'never annoy me again' in the notification bar? Really annoying and negatively affected my opinion of OneDrive

  16. I cannot upgrade to 50GB

    I can't upgrade to 50GB because my country is not listed in the credit card application, it's show only United States. And they offer 1TB, this is not my recommendation for huge size, only I ask for 50 GB and USA IS stuck in my billing application.

  17. Open to last viewed directory.

    It always opens to Pictures, so i always have to navigate back to the Document directory. It would be better if it just opened to whatever you were viewing last, or at least allow an option for this in the settings.
