How can we improve the OneDrive app on Android?

Show only photos from Photos folder

On wepage we have option so see pictures/photos from only the Photos folder but in Android version of OneDrive, we don't have this option when we go to the "Photos" from the mainmenu, it shows all pictures, what we dont want.

So please add that same function from webpage to app.

        This was fixed long time ago on Windows Mobile. Shame is still problem on Android

        since over a year has gone bye without any comment (as is usual for sensible suggestions) - i can only share what i did:

        download boxcryptor and encrypt all folders that contain images but should not be in fotos.

        it is a completely a**-backwards approach to solve a problem that only exists because the OneDrive client lacks basic functionality but it works.

        since i do not need those other folders on my phone there is no issue for me - but if you do you can use the free boxcryptor account on two devices and an android client is available, allowing you to decrypt and access those files on your phone too.

        still an ugly and roundabout way to do things but it was the only way for me to actually have a Foto galery that merits the name on my phone.

        This is very annoying. The desktop photos, ios photos app, online app all have the ability to show photos only from the photos folder - android app does not. Makes the photos tab pretty much useless if you use onedrive for anything else.
