  1. Support playback for H.265 video on OneDrive online and mobile apps

    This will save loads of space, and will save a lot of bandwidth

  2. Don't attempt to implement Dynamic Type (larger text) on iPhone/iPad.

    If Large Text is selected (via Settings/General/Accessability) this is poorly implemented on OneDrive, eg folder names beneath the folder icon (Files view). People with visual disabilities can Zoom the whole page. As mentioned elsewhere when folders are displayed with a sliver of a photo please can this be enlarged as per oneDrive v9.9 (v10 is a setback).

  4. stuck at “setting things up” how could you be so stupid and irresponsible

    before the onedrive APP automatically upload the camera
    the onedrive APP will stupidly make clear the information of all the files in the whole onedrive(not only the files in the camera folder),and it will write the information in a database in the onedrive APP
    I have more than 100GB files in the onedrive.
    The consequence is the iOS onedrive APP cannot make clear the information of all the files. So it stuck at "Setting things up", and it has written more than 3GB date to the database aforementioned.
    and if you use an empty onedrive, you will find it can…

  5. Restore Annotation of PDF Files

    Not sure what prompted the developers to eliminate the ability to annotate PDF files within OneDrive but BIG mistake. Renders OneDrive almost useless to me now. Please restore this ability

  6. Select All button

    The app is great! But it will be better if there's a Select All button to select all items in one touch.

    Thanks.

  7. Scan in black and white

    Love the new scan feature but is it possible to scan in grayscale? Colour is taking up a lot of space.

  10. Free up Space

    Google Photos app on iOS has a free up space button that will automatically delete local copies of photos and videos after they have been successfully uploaded to Google Drive. I use OneDrive to backup my photos and videos from my phone. Would be great to have similar option in Onedrive app.

  11. Please bring back the original markup tool for PDF’s in iOS. The new version 10.38.2 makes editing a pain

    The new version of onedrive has erased one of the best features for editing PDF’s. The older version of the Markup Tool made editing PDF’s much easier than what’s in place now. :(

    -Please bring it back

  12. Long file names

    Hi, I have a lot of files wit long names and on this version of app, most of the file names are replaced with ... Which makes it really hard to see the files. Please change the behavior to show full names instead or add an option that will allow me to do that. Thanks

  13. Download and offline for complete photo albums

    Enable simple, complete downloading a onedrice photo album to a local iPhone photo album or making it completely offline available in the onedrive app. NO more working on each individual file (thats nightmare for albums with many photos).

    With current version nesting photos based on date taken is being rolled out, however just in format camera roll \ year \ month. it will be nice to have possibility to opt out, or to choose diffeent formatting (camera roll \year-month-day for example.....)

  17. Uploading and renaming

    When uploading files on iPad it would be very welcome to have the option of renaming the file. Files containing % fail to upload (e.g. chp%3A10.1007%2F978-3-319-24282-8_3.pdf), so one needs to first upload to a different app, rename and only then upload to OneDrive.

    In the current UI renaming files is cumbersome, one needs first to press "...", which, by the way, once appears on the top of the screen, once at the bottom ...

  18. Multiple accounts sign-in

    Hi,

    Since I have multiple one drive accounts, I always wanted to access all of them through one drive app at the tip of my finger without signing out one and signing in the other and have hassle of switching from one to another...

    I recently updated and saw such message in the beginning when I loaded the app that said now access multiple accounts at the same time, I felt soooo good but when I tried signing in, it says only one personal account can be signed in..

    I donno what makes one account personal and the other work…

  19. Camera upload options

    I have multiple devices using one drive to upload their photos but they all end up in the same camera roll folder. An option for a separate sub folder for each device would be great. It will make it a lot easier to organise the family pictures.
    Also you could go further and do a separate folder for each month/ year. This would be good for the unorganised person, like myself who has over a thousand pictures to sort through.

  20. Offline

    Make it so you can make a whole folder offline at once. Not just selecting files one by one it takes forever.
