  2. Create a "OneDrive Photos" app

    I would like you could create a dedicated OneDrive Photos app, like Google Photos is separated from Google Drive (offering a photos-focused app).

    In Windows Mobile is not problem: the gallery is, at the same time, the "gallery" you have in OneDrive. You don't need to open the OneDrive app, and your Photos sync with your local gallery app.

    Why we can't have something similar to the Google Photos or Windows Mobile experience?

    Thank you and sorry for my grammar mistakes, I Hope you understand me.

  3. "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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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?

  7. Reduce Image size and quality

    We want an option to control the image size and quality for the photos of canera roll before uploading. Some images may be 5+ MB we need an option to all the app to compress its size before uploading it to OneDrive account.

  9. 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...

  10. 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

  12. 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.

  14. Reduce memory usage while running in the background

    It is a bit silly that OneDrive for Android uses on average 64MB of RAM when just sitting idle in the background.

    OneDrive support even refused to answer why it needs to force itself to stay running in the background all the time so if it actually isn't needed the high memory usage is even worse. Forcing an app to remain running all the time if it isn't needed is called "one of the worst memory management mistakes an app can make" in the Android SDK documentation.

  15. Add "Copy To" function

    There is no function to copy files in OneDrive app from one folder to another folder. This is an essential function which would allow the user to properly manage their setup via the app. Since the "Move To" function already exists, it would be similar in its functionality.

    There are several workarounds this issue but they are cumbersome. One option is to share the selected files via OneDrive and select the destination folder. Another option is to save the selected files to your device and then upload them to the desired folder.

    Please add the "Copy To" function to the…

  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. Offline Folders

    Need support adding for making entire folders/sub-folders available offline rather than just individual files, then it would rival other services such as cubby and this the only thing that would need to happen for my entire company to switch to using one drive instead.

  18. TURN OFF WHITEBOARD ENHANCEMENT

    I took an image of 2 blocks in a diagram, with an arrow between them. It saved an image of an arrow pointing to a block. That is not what I wanted.

    I put the title in all-caps because I am very angry.

  19. Photos section in OneDrive for Android should default to only crawling and showing pictures in the Pictures folder not all folders

    Photos currently crawls every single picture format found in my entire OneDrive account. For those of us that are syncing all User folders such as Desktop, Documents, Music and Pictures, this Photos section on OneDrive for Android is useless. It crowds up and lists every single "picture" including web design graphics, backgrounds, icons, album art, etc. into the Photos section of the app. Have the photos section only display pictures found in the Pictures folder of OneDrive.

  20. Sort camera uploads into folders

    Now that photos finally can upload from multiple folders on the phone, we should have the option to have them automatically sort into folders or albums on onedrive based on the folder they came from.
