  1. Upload randomly stops

    When uploading lots of photos from an android phone, it takes a lot of time because the upload is not continuous, it stops for a few seconds up to several minutes very often.

  2. Make One Drive Android do what you claim it does & what it's whole purpose is.

    OneDrive should sync files on Android to OneDrive just as it does on a Windows PC. I need to use a third party app to do this. I use OneSync - once installed and configured, I've forgotten about it and it flawlessly syncs my files everytime I charge it. Everytime I use a file on my PC that is synced from Android I first feel grateful to OneSync and then think how Microsoft deceived me.

  4. Stop making suck apps

    Everything about Microsoft sucks. I follow instructions and I either don't see what they say is there. Or it doesn't work as written.

  8. Free up space when files are no longer "kept offline"

    When you mark files as "keep offline" in the official Android app, it'll download the file to your device. But when you unmark "keep offline", the storage space is not freed up. Only way to free it up is to delete all app data in Android's settings, or uninstall/reinstall the app.

  11. Create the option to turn it off, not sleeping, but off, so that I can choose what to save and when.

    It feels like I dont have control of the app and it is just syphoning my pics and docs out of my phone.

  12. Add basic photo editing functionality

    We all take a picture and edit a little before sharing it to social media. That's why OneDrive for Android should have some basic editing functionality like markup tools, crop, filters, perhaps some advanced functionality like increasing exposure or decreasing contrast
    Well, I agree we can do this using a third-party app, but OneDrive doesn't sync the updated image if it was replaced, so any changes I made to the original image, it doesn't reflect on OneDrive i.e my other devices.
    Besides, it takes some extra steps which are annoying.

  13. Update photos as they are replaced with a modified version by other apps

    Since OneDrive for Android doesn't have any functionality to edit photos, often I use other apps e.g. Gallery Go by Google Photos to edit my photos and replace the original one with the edited one. But OneDrive doesn't sync the latest image. It remains the same. I mean Your Phone app does sync the latest image, then why not OneDrive for Android.
    As a result, I've to manually upload the image separately (so I've two copies of the same image) or use Your Phone app to download and replace the old photo with the new one.
    So please, either add…

  14. Word and Office files in your personal hidden archive require mobile view

    Word and Office files in your personal hidden archive require mobile view. I would like to connect to the office program, or support mobile viewing.

  15. Indispensable features already discussed in 2016.

    Some of indispensable features as follow already available on Google and Apple are not yet on OneDrive.
    I just stay with Microsoft because the Office and more space on cloud. But seriously thinking about move to Google.


    1. Face recognition

    2. Better search results

    3. Smarter caching and thumbnails

    4. More sensible album sharing

    5. Dedicated photo apps for iOS and Android

  17. scan from picture

    Other scan apps allow you to use pictures from Gallery as source for scan as alternate to camera for the occasions that you have taken the picture for later processing.
