  3. Quick Access to Favorites or Recent Folders, 3D Touch

    It would be nice to have a favorites or recent folders option. Not sure if this should sync in any way to recently visited folders from all devices but end goal would be to have a quick way to access some sub folders instead of drilling down from the top directory every time. Maybe a swipe left or right on the main screen to get to folders or files you recently or frequently access and tagged/marked them as such.

    For those iOS devices that support the additional 3D touch functionality you could also have favorites listed there. Press and hold…

  4. Search photo tags

    OneDrive already automatically scans and tags pictures (e.g. "Horse", "Vehicle", etc.) in our account through image recognition. Why not allow us to find out photos easily in the OneDrive app by allowing us to search these tags, and personal tags that we have added ourselves. Thanks.

  5. Bring back old editing toolbar

    I noticed with the new iOS update on the iPad, the editing toolbar in OneDrive has changed. The old one since it had many more functions. For example, in the pencil you could select more colors and you could pick as low as 0,5 for the tip (for the new the lowest is 1pt); you could also move around (and zoom ina and out) with two fingers even if you had the pencil selected, now it draws if you touch it any way. Also, before you could erase anything, as small as it was (now it erases everything around it…

  6. Image rotation

    It would be really awesome if we had a button that would allow us to rotate a picture left or right

  7. Support iWork files

    If I copy files created by Apple's Numbers, Pages, and Keynote applications to my OneDrive using my Mac, they show up as folders in the OneDrive web interface and OneDrive iOS app. As a result, I can't open them at all on iOS.

  8. Include recently uploaded files in "Recent" tab

    I want to quickly see and access files that I've recently uploaded in the "recent" tab so that I don't have to hunt for then.

  9. Option to choose which pictures are shown

    OneDrive for iOS now shows all the pictures you have under the pictures tab. Please add an option to choose whether one prefers to show only those under the pictures folder of OneDrive.

  10. Add cache clear feature to OneDrive app

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive アプリのキャッシュ削除機能の追加希望

    Add cache clear feature to OneDrive app


    ■Description(内容):
    現在 iOS 版の OneDrive アプリでは、アカウントのキャッシュのクリア機能は提供されているが、保存されたファイルを閲覧、編集した場合に作成されるキャッシュを手動で削除できない。
    使用していないファイルで端末の空き容量が圧迫されてしまうため、手動でキャッシュを削除するための機能の実装を要望します。

    In OneDrive app for iOS, we only can clear the cache for accounts, and it is not possible to manually clear the cache created when viewing and editing files.
    Unused files consume the storage space in devices, therefore, please add ability to clear cache of files by manual.

  12. Search function in shared folders

    please enable ondrive search in shared folders at the ios app, or let the search field disappear as soon as you are in a shared folder. From the user's point of view, the current solution is very misleading and not intuitive.

  14. Clear cache button

    While the app is great, like many apps it has a habit of not properly clearing it's cache when your finished with it. A clear cache button to free up this space again would be helpful. Ideally the cache should never be bigger than about 15MB, mines currently at 80MB and I've only had it for 2 days. Probably wouldn't be that hard to do but would be very helpful

  15. Show extensions

    The main app interface needs an option to turn on extensions. I have a folder right now with over 20 files named test and they each are different programming languages and I can’t tell them apart without the extension. I know you can click on details or open the file within the app but it’s a major hassle when needing one fast

    If this is to be a serious contender with Apple photos then there needs to be some photo editing tools.

    Any way to set up a default folder view that applies to all folders? And if change the view for a particular folder, then remember such?

    Allow us to keep using the features available in previous version of markup tool


    ■Description(内容):
    モバイル版の OneDrive アプリを最新バージョンにアップデートした結果、PDF のマークアップに関する機能が一部使えなくなってしまった。
    以前はノート注釈機能で星形や×マーク、矢印マークなど選択できたが、現在は吹き出しのみ。
    また、直線を引く機能なども使用していたが、最新バージョンの更新に伴い使用できなくなってしまった。
    以前のマークアップ機能より機能が大幅に制限されたため、以前の機能がそのまま引き続き使用できるようにお願いいたします。
    最新バージョン:10.39.8

    As a result of updating the OneDrive mobile app to the latest version (10.39.8), some features to markup a PDF became unusable.
    Previously, it is possible to select star, arrows and so on by using note annotation feature, but now we can only select callout. Also, we are not able to put straight lines too.

    We feel the inconvenience that the markup tool features were significantly restricted than the previous version,…

  20. Select and send multiple files as attachment

    At present we can send only single file as attachment. If more than one file are selected, no option for send as attachment is available in sharing. Only option left is send as link and getting link message is displayed. But there are many organisations like banks where attachments through email are allowed but opening of link to onedrive is prohibited. In such cases, sending of multiple files by email though in same folder through iPhone is really frustrating. It would be great if onedrive allows selection and sending multiple files by email as Attachment not as link. I use…
