How can we improve the OneDrive mobile app on iOS?

Display file extension on iOS OneDrive app

Following this (mistakenly resolved) idea:

    Can't believe that MS can be so blinkered. Of course we need to see file types/extensions! How else to distinguish between files in a collection with the same name but different type?

    Yes! we need to see the file extensions... As shown at the website app.

    Agreed here - users would like to see what the file is without having to press and hold each one. This is of particular importance when someone is not working strictly from MS office products where you display icons to help identify the files.
