  1. Faster Thumbnails

    I'm a big fan of the camera roll upload feature of the one drive app. However, when scrolling through photos it takes a frustratingly long time for the thumbnails to load, and I spend a lot of time staring at blank squares. Having the ability to store thumbnails on the phone or to quickly download smaller-sized thumbnails would make file-browsing significantly easier.

  2. Rename a file upon upload

    It would be nice to be able to rename a file as one uploads it, instead of uploading and then having to rename.

    It would save a step. Thanks!

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. Allow HEIC to JPG conversion when uploading

    I used to upload photos from my personal iPhone to OneDrive so I could open them on my work computer running Windows 8.1. With the update allowing HEIC I can no longer open them. It seems my options are to open the app to take pictures, allow all of my personal photos to be uploaded, access pictures only through the website, use a 3rd party converter, or find a new app to get my pictures on my computer. It would be nice if there was a setting to return the app to the old functionality.

  7. 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.

  8. 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).

  9. Sorting Albums

    Please add the ability to sort albums by photo date taken on iOS & on OneDrive.com. Currently if you update an album by adding a photo or create a new album with a date taken from a previous time, it will only sort the day the album was updated. If this is done often, it can be very difficult to find an album on an iPhone & in my opinion the album view does not look good when dates from much older years are mixed in with current or almost current years. Thank you.

  10. Offline access and sort by 'Custom' option

    Please
    1. Give an option in each file to be stored permanently on the device so that it can be viewed offline and need not to re-download it while online.Make this option as a toggle button on every file to switch between online-offline mode.
    2. Then include a sorting option based on online-offline files.
    3. Re-introduce the sort by 'Custom' option as earlier version.

    Thanks for listening and waiting to see these features rolled out real soon.

  12. Music Player

    I want to be able to use OneDrive as a full-fledged music player. All that'd be needed is the ability to add folders to a 'music collection' section (similar to the photo album feature) and then add the ability to play tracks sequentially, shuffle, create playlists, add album art, etc.

    I'd have no use for iTunes, or any music service apart from Pandora, if OneDrive had this feature.

  17. Multiple Personal Accounts

    Hello,

    It would be nice to have the ability to access several personal accounts, one personal and one business doesn't always meet the needs.

    Thanks!
    Keep up the great work.

  18. Prevent Photos Tab showing photos from entire Onedrive

    Why on earth does the photos tab show all of my pictures across the entire Onedrive?

    There is an option on the website version to just show photos from the Pictures Folder, please add this setting to the mobile app as it’s making it unusable as primary photo storage solution!

  19. Windows Explorer "Details" like look

    instead of a pile of icons or files in two columns how about getting an explorer/finder like view as we have known it from Windows and MacOS for ages already. Files , date of change, date of creation , type and size etc. would be visible in neat rows....resorting by name/date etc happens when tapping on the headers. Lets please put some order into the mess of files...
