  2. .txt File Functionality

    Currently you can view notepad (.txt) files but you can't modify them. It would be great if you could modify them. I often use these files to take notes that don't take up much space and that will sync across my devices

  3. Show Site Icons

    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?

  4. Zoom out in photo to moment, month, year

    Zoom out on photo collection like on windows phone.
    I would like to be able to zoom out to month, place, year, etc.
    When you have several thousand photos it is impossible to use the app to find an old picture because it means an endless flipping.
    The iphone Photos way Collections is OK. But you can do better than that.

  5. iPad app redesign (my concept with pictures)

    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.

  6. Add vertical scrolling and bookmarks to pdf view

    I normally use the Documents app by Readdle for PDF viewing and annotation. Now that you have added PDF markup to OneDrive (for which I thank you!) if you added vertical scrolling as an option for viewing PDF's in the settings, and if you added support for bookmarks in PDF's, I could probably abandon the use of Documents by Readdle and switch over completely to OneDrive for most of my mobile PDF needs.

  7. Document editing

    Editing documents with apple pen with a recent update does not include the option of inserting arrows, text boxes, shapes. This was very useful, i do not understand why they would take it out of the app.

    Click then click then click to reach files or my solution to pop message…

  9. File Renaming

    This latest version of OneDrive for iPad has robbed users of the ability to rename a file or folder by just adjusting a character or number in the existing title. E.g. by adjusting a date or adding an additional letter. You now have to type out the new title in full every time.
    This is a retrograde step and will cause many users much frustration.

  11. Sorting

    When I open any folders or sub folders, I have to always keep changing the grid view and sort as per my requirement. My sorting is also in acceding order. So example we have files 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15. This is the proper sorting order but, in one drive it happens like the below

    1 10 12 13 14 15 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

    It has to be done in proper order and moreover in the main screen when I choose what sort and grid…

  14. Better editing

    I would like to have back the ability to make circles, draw straight lines to edit my PDFs like before the last update. The apps was perfect for the kind of work I do and not having to pay a LOT of money to do it. Like in my photo please please bring it back

  15. Allow copying of files

    I see options to move files though I don't see "copy". A common usage is to copy files into a shared folder. The recipient then simply moves them out of the shared folder into their own folder. I know the files have been received when they disappear.

    Ideally you should be able to select multiple files (or folders) and copy them somewhere from within the app.

  17. Progress bar during uploads

    Knowing how many files have been uploaded is helpful, but when you are uploading either many files of varying sizes or one large file - it would be more helpful to have a progress bar so I can try to estimate time remaining and be sure that the file is actually being uploaded.

  18. Fingerprint authentication

    Please make it stop! I have to sign in almost every single time I open the app. It is especially annoying with 2 factor authentication. Please let us use a PIN or even better Touch Auth for iOS (fingerprint).

  19. Display file extension on iOS OneDrive app

    Show file extension as part of file name, not only on file detail (which for some reason does not work anyway). Without file extension, it is quite difficult (== impossible) to see which file is which if it has same name and icon is not known for both files.

    Following this (mistakenly resolved) idea: https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/6707554-display-full-file-names-within-the-ios-onedrive-ap

  20. Allow pages or docs (especially PDF's) to be saved from Safari or iBooks to OneDrive. Cannot see any way to do this at this time.

    No way with the iPhone to save documents or pages from the web or iBooks to OneDrive. This would be valuable for research compilation, reference sharing, etc. Evernote and Dropbox-like accessibility.
