  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.

  2. 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)

  4. 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,

  5. 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…

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  12. 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

  13. Add support for iOS Url Schemes for linking to the OneDrive app from other apps

    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

  15. Offline Work

    In addition to being able to view files offline in the OneDrive App, editing files while offline would make excellent use of the offline implementation and increase overall productivity.

  17. Option to exclude folders from Photos tab in iOS app

    I have over one hundred thousand work-related images in my OneDrive that I do not want showing up in the "Photos" tab with my personal photos for aesthetic and app performance reasons. There is currently a great option on OneDrive.com to limit the images that appear in the "Photos" tab to only those in the "Pictures" folder. However, this feature has not been extended to the iOS or Android apps. Please enable this option in the iOS app.

  19. PDF Tool

    The PDF Tools (the mark up tool, bookmark and annotation tabs) worked extremely well before the latest update. The upgrade has removed a lot of the functionality that existed - a moveable tool bar, easy to find pages that were either bookmarked or annotated, the ability to draw straight lines with ease, etc.

    The current pdf viewer and tools seem to be retrograde and make the process of working on pdfs MUCH slower.
