    • Fix freezing of Android app

      The android app is unusable. I go into my camera roll folder and it just constantly freezes. I cannot scroll, it takes forever to refresh the latest photos and eventually I give up and use the website instead. Please fix it.

      • Videos stop when the phone auto rotates and video playing won't stop your phone from going to sleep.

        Since the recent update on my android device, my videos will play but the phone goes to sleep while the video plays. This has never happened before. Also the phone stops playing video when the phone auto rotates. These were never an issue before but now it's kinda inconvenient. Using LG stylo 2

              • 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!

                • add photo captions to Android app

                  Captions of photos I have typed online don't show up anywhere when viewing photos through the Android app. Also, one cannot add/change caption from Android app.

                  • OneDrive for Andriod Offline location option

                    Hello...It would be very helpful if you could allow me to select an SD Storage location to store my OneDrive offline cache. This way I can take my best videos to show people without sucking up my data when I'm not on Wifi. I just don't have the internal space to have a very large offline cache so this would help me by allowing me to point it to a larger SD Card.

                      I am using onedrive for android tablet. Hello, can one drive add in one more tab which is 'PROGRESS'. It is pretty difficult for me to navigate the current uploading/downloading/moving tab. I hope Microsoft developers team will hear my voice, thanks.

                      • More options for music playback on the OneDrive mobile app

                        Playing music on the app is very poor. There is no real music player and it does not display file tags or cover art. Please improve music playback on the OneDrive app!

                          Camera upload has an option to select folders to sync but there's no way to identify the identical folder you are syncing because there's no full path shown

                          • Change sync folder photos

                            I'd like to be able to select which OneDrive folder my photos sync to. Currently there is a default folder called Camera Roll that has thousands of photos. I would like to be able to start fresh in a new folder so I don't have to scroll through so many photos when I view the folder contents. Since I can't change which folders my phone syncs to, I have to move photos from the original folder to a new folder and that's very time consuming.

                            • Automatic Photo Upload - in Folders

                              Since an update a long time ago, onedrive syncs all folders with pictures if you want to. But it uploads it into only one Onedrive folder.

                              If you want your photos, your WhatsApp pictures and your Screenshots uploaded, all are uploaded into one folder and you have to manually sort them again.

                              I'd like to have an option to upload all photos in folders with the names they have on my phone, so you have i.e. a screenshot folder, a WhatsApp folder etc.

                              • Clear up notifications page

                                Create a button to clear the notifications page on the onedrive app.

                                In the beggining of the notifications it automatically created albuns and the annoying notifications remain and cant be deleted. Need a button that enables it to be deleted. Even better if you van choose what to delete.

                                    • Show object Modification Date in File Lists

                                      When looking at details of files of objects using an Android device, as well as showing Creation Date for an object, also show Modification Date. This would then also allow Sorting of Objects on Modification Date which would greatly assist finding objects.

                                      • Photos - Allow synchronized delete (i.e. both on OneDrive and device)

                                        I'd like to have the option to delete photo from device and from cloud - just as it works on Windows 10 (from everywhere on the device).
                                        If that is not possible - and it most probably is not - have the opportunity to delete from device when deleting in OneDrive.
                                        Or at least have the opportunity to identify differences and do it as bulk operation manually.
                                        Thank you!
