  1. Download


    1. Add "select all" box. I don't have to tic 50 times for 50 items!


    2. Allow folder download instead of just fils. I need to download the whole folder


    3. Allow download to SD card, and allow creating new folder.


    Honestly, the download function is so poor and needs serious attention and improvements

  2. Option to "keep both files or overwrite old file" while uploading file with the same name as a existing file on Android

    Could you implement the "keep both files or overwrite old file"- option on the OneDrive App for Android?? when i upload a file on my computer and a file with the same name does exist already on OneDrive, i get a warning that bthe file could noz be uploaded cause it does exist already and i can chose to keep both or overwrite the existing one.
    This option is missing on the Android App. One Drive on Android will automaticly rename the new file (add a (1) ) and upload it and i have to delet the older version manualy…

    I haven't been able to download a folder. I didn't find where it is on my device - quickpik at least didnt find -when I make it available offline, so I had to select all files in a folder to really download them.

  7. Create structured folders for mobile additional uploaded folders like whatsapp

    From version 3.9 its possible to sync additional folders to OneDrive. However I dont want my whatsapp pictures, my screenshots etc. to be in the same folder as my camera pictures (Camera Roll). It would be great to have folders structure. In Copy.com RIP you had a main upload folder and inside folder per device with the device camera, folders for whatsapp videos, whatsapp pictures etc...

  9. "Sync now" button

    I'm a heavy OneDrive user and I use it to keep my Android camera photos updated. My main problem doing this is that the OneDrive app has only 2 options for syncing pictures - you can either tell it to sync every time there's a new picture, or only when the phone is charging.

    While I like the "upload only when charging" option sometimes I like to take a quick picture and sync the phone - which sucks because then I have to go and turn off the "upload only when charging" option. Then after I'm done I have to…

  10. OneDrive Music app

    I would like you to create a dedicated OneDrive Music app, where I can play music stored in my OneDrive music locker.

    This app should be able to cache music to listen offline, and even maybe automatically upload music from my device to OneDrive.

    Microsoft used to have Groove Music for Android, but they are killing it.

  11. smaller thumbnails

    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.

  13. It's really hard to work on files in android. If I open a .txt file there is no editor nor way to display the file properly.

    Need a way to display and edit text files. I save files as .txt for notes and can't display on android devices and also there is no editor mapped for them.

  14. Shortcut to folders in Android Version

    Enable the possibility to add a shortcut folder in the home screen, or any screen, for folders in OneDrive. It will be amazing to access the files directly without opening the app and searching for the folder you want. It will be like our desktop.

  16. Quickly navigate to specific dates of photos

    On the Windows photos app, you are able to quickly navigate to specific time periods. This would be a great feature to incorporate into the photos section of the OneDrive app!

  17. Add the option to change file display settings - show date modified

    The date listed for displaying files on Android is date created. This works for photos, but is unhelpful for files that are continually being updated. I suggest adding the option to change the date displayed to date modified rather than date created.

  18. Improve the PDF reader

    Hey there.
    Recently I was using the OneDrive application in android, I found some features that would improve the application and of course its usefulness.
    1) Add a view for horizontal scrolling in the PDF reader.
    2) Add a night mode.
    3) Add the option "Jump to page" in the PDF reader.
    4) Add the function to put bookmarks on the pages in PDF files.
    5) Add arrows (Simbols) for the PDF marks.
    6) Add OCR for scanned PDF files to be able to highlight it.
    I think the community will appreciate that features.

  20. make folders available offline on Android

    When I saw that the feature for offline access was marked as "done", I was thrilled, but rapidly disappointed when I realized it's been implemented for individual files only. What if we want to keep an entire folder in sync? Isn't that the purpose of sync cloud storage?
