  1. View of thumbnails in picture folders

    With the new upgrade more emphasis was put on showing the file name rather than the thumbnail. I hate it. I use my picture folders for showing photos and projects to both clients and students from my iPhone. And as a photographer it was a great help. But now the thumbnails are really small and the file names are huge and don't even show the full name. I really don't like that I can't switch that view back to the way it was before. Just because you can create a new preview mode doesn't mean you should.

      • make chromecast work on iOS devices

        I moved to Onedrive to have all my photos available from any device. I also have Chromecast all over my house. However Apple devices do not have the abilty to Chromecast from Onedrive. This feature should definitely be added.

        • Undo

          Have an undo option. I accidentally moved a file and didn’t know which folder I had thrown it into. If there were an undo option, I could’ve used it to move the folder back. Thanks!

                • Make the generated files invisible in the state of "Offline Files" in OneDrive application via iOS.

                  • Audio playback on iOS

                    Audio playback on iOS is pretty awful at the moment - here's some improvement suggestions...
                    1) show file names (or artist and song tags if present)
                    2) show album art (if present)
                    3) if playback inside a folder, play the next file in sequence (on my default, can be disabled in settings)
                    4) allow adjusting playback speed (0.5x, 1x default, 1.5x, 2x)
                    5) when exiting playback back to folder list animate down to the current file just exited for easy identification what you just played
                    6) optional: show checkbox or other icon to indicate if a song was played already…

                    • Add an option to iOS app photo upload to backup only new photos (taken after enabling this feature)

                      I already have a few thousand photos on my iPhone. They are already backed up by another app. So I do not want to replicate them in OneDrive. However, I would like to switch to OneDrive for future photo backup without impacting what's already on my phone. Today, I cannot do this. So I am unwilling to switch over to OneDrive for photo backup.

                      • Don't attempt to implement Dynamic Type (larger text) on iPhone/iPad.

                        If Large Text is selected (via Settings/General/Accessability) this is poorly implemented on OneDrive, eg folder names beneath the folder icon (Files view). People with visual disabilities can Zoom the whole page. As mentioned elsewhere when folders are displayed with a sliver of a photo please can this be enlarged as per oneDrive v9.9 (v10 is a setback).

                          When saving a file, say a PDF from Safari, it always goes to the root folder. It at least give the option to show recent locations

                          • Sync the Entire Document Library in the iOS Mobile app

                            Currently we can only sync files and subfolders in the iOS OneDrive app. I suggest to implement the feature that would allow users to mark entire document libraries to be marked for offline availability. The only workaround now is to create a folder at the root of the document library and put everything in there. This is an ugly and inconvenient solution.

                                After doing a search, I would like to quickly find similar or related files in the same folder. There is no quick way to open the folder of a found file and browse its contents.

                                  n the One Drive application, i suggest to add the ability to select which folder (from one Drive) the pictures folder will scan for pictures. Today, under the pictures tab, you can see all pictures/ movies from all folders which is very annoying.

                                    • File folder names readable and pics larger in iOS app

                                      Ok OneDrive I now have one more request sometime recently you updated and now on iPhone in OneDrive you see folders but can’t read the full file names making it impossible to utilize effectively and secondly when viewing photos from the file folder you made them so small compared to before you can’t see them to go through them in folders for organizing purposes. I’m forced to go to my laptop or pc because it’s been made so much less viewable in OneDrive for iPhone iPad I hope this can be resolved because it used to be more viewable and…

                                      • Open files using Office Web Apps

                                        I can open an office web app (word or excel) on my PC running Windows 10 directly from OneDrive without logging in. It uses my OneDrive login info.

                                        It would be nice if OneDrive on iOS would give a choice to using Office app installed on phone or using Office web app, open the appropriate web app without logging in or having the iOS app.

                                          In Word app for iOS devices, I hope you to add the ability to display underlines so that I can confirm the line spacing more easily.

                                          Thank you for your consideration.
