  1. Live Photos

    With the new iPhone 6s and iOS 9, are there plans to automatically upload the mov file that is created as part of the "live photo". It would be nice to make it an option, similar to how uploading videos is an option. Thanks.

    • Separate folders for each device backing up to the camera roll

      If you have multiple devices that would take advantage of the camera roll there should be an option to put them in separate folders. IE if you have an android phone, ipad, etc each device should be given the opportunity to use a subfolder (Camera roll\ipad and Camera roll\android)

      • Improve the PDF annotation experience on iOS

        -updated title -

        The annotation / editing toolbar used to be blue, movable, and convenient. Now it looks like it came straight out of Windows 95 and has very limited functionality; e.g. you can no longer create two parallel pens and switch between them. Especially on the iPad Pro this is a huge loss and I don't see how this is a change for the better. Please bring the modern toolbar back!

          We hear the feedback and working hard to address it and improve our PDF annotation editing experience

          We’ve released 2 updates to the app since we made the change in tech for editing PDFs.
          Fixes in these updates include:
          -Saving pen style preferences
          -Apple Pencil usability updates
          -Toolbar UI update

          Coming in the next few days are:
          -Improved eraser functionality
          -Save your position in the PDF

          The team is working hard to address the other feedback and we will be releasing updates frequently.

          • Copy files on mobile (Onedrive for iOS)

            Please add the option to copy (not just move) files or folders to the onedrive App for iOS.
            Would be great and should not be a big deal to implement.

            Thanks!
            Regards,

            • Adding the bookmark function in PDF

              Hi! I'm used to read books (.pdf) through the OneDrive app. Although the commenting and highlighting functions are already great, I'd like to know if there could be some bookmarking function for some particular pages, so that I can go back to the page more easily. Thanks!

                • Pause upload

                  Put some sort of feature that pauses a upload ( like taping the uploaded or a dedicated pause button ) some video files are to large to sit and wait for the upload to finish and some people don't have the best internet connection. So pause feature would be much appreciated.

                  • Exclude Folders from All Photos View

                    Gents, I believe you have a major problem in the concept of your Photos tab in the OneDrive iOS app. All the photos I have uploaded to my OneDrive into separate and organized folders (over 80gb) are showing on the photos tab. This is insane. It gets extremely slow and very messy. Just as all your competitors do, we should see there only the Camera Roll pictures that are uploaded to OneDrive, and not everything! I have activated the automatic backup of my iPhone photos to OneDrive and guess what? All the photos that are being uploaded are mixed in…

                        • Multiple onedrive personal accounts

                          You allow multiple onedrive business accounts, but not multiple personal accounts in the iOS app. Really?? We can have multiple personal emails in the outlook app. Why would you force us to logout and log back in just because it is a personal account in the onedrive app? Please allow multiple personal accounts on the onedrive app.

                              To build other apps that can link into the OneDrive app is really valuable. It would work perfect if you could implement the iOS Url Scheme so that you could link to the OneDrive app like this onedrive://folder/xxxx and onedrive://file/xxx

                                • Swiping gestures

                                  To delete files my first attempt was to try swiping gestures on the files/folders because that is how the native iOS apps work. I figured it out eventually that I needed to hold down a file to be able to multi select and delete.

                                  It's true with swiping you can't multi select, but maybe we can have both

                                    • Sync burst photos in iOS client.

                                      Currently on the primary image is synced which means many photos are being missed out on in burst shots. I suggest to sync all burst photos.

                                        Our sharepoint sites all have custom icons/logos. Yes the onedrive app on iOS just shows green and pink squares.
                                        Any chance it can display the sites custom icon?

                                          the concept is mostly about visuals. i see OneDrive as a cloud, known for it's user-friendly simple and pretty interface, feature-rich apps and powerful productive tools.
