Syncs files but content missing
by S. Vinnie on 2021/10/17 10:40
For some reason my keynote documents don’t get updated on my mac. But everything I do on OneDrive for Mac gets synced everywhere. It’s worked once before but then it stopped
Great app.

October 2021 Update
by sapphiresky83 on 2021/10/15 21:26
The app installs and seems to work okay, however, trying to access or pull or store files through the iPhone’s native Files app fails. OneDrive appears as “Read Only” and my QuickBooks app cannot retrieve and upload receipts from my OneNote account via the iPhone Files app. This used to work! And it worked for a long time. I think a recent update, post iOS 15 release, has broken everything with OneDrive working outside of the OneDrive app on an iPhone.
Corporate policies applied across personal accounts !!! Why?
by PATRIKCZE on 2021/10/15 17:04
I do not know what happened if that is fault of our corporate policy or Microsoft fail to implement MDM, or Apple fail to provide proper functionality in iOS 15 … but I do not understand why I’m blocked by our corporate policy everywhere means in all Microsoft applications. Whenever I would like to open document from my private Teams in word, excel, power point, I’m always failing with inaccessibility because for some reasons corporate policies are applied to my personal account. What the heck ! I can’t simple print nothing. How is that even possible. Aren’t all applications send boxes how Microsoft achieved this stupidity !? I don’t care who’s fault it is, just fix it asap! Totally useless app which leads me to use purely Apple products like Pages, Numbers, etc.
One Drive

Please fix this
by Ambrotvd on 2021/10/15 11:36
There should be an option to select multiple photos at once instead of selecting every single photo one by one which takes a lot of time and effort
Main Menu
by mdavisgolfnut on 2021/10/15 03:11
My biggest hang up is that the app constantly sends me back to the main root menu instead of the document I was reading/editing. It doesn’t matter if the app ran one deep or four deep in the background when using other apps. 90% of the time when I go back to the app it sends me back to the main menu and I find myself navigating all the way back and then scrolling several pages to where I left off. Already chatted with Microsoft and that was fruitless.
SOOOO Convenient!!
by sblaire08 on 2021/10/14 19:55
This app has helped me clean up the photos on my phone that I need to be able to access for my business but don’t want them clogging up my photos on my phone. OneDrive stores it all for me so I can download them to my phone as I need them now. LOVE LOVE IT!!
Send button not working

After latest update of one drive or IPad/Iphone IOS, when she try to send a document from One drive to, for example, One Note the send icon button is not shown at the right upper corner. You can press the blank corner where Send should be and it will send the item.

Doesn’t play well with Files app (FIXED!)
by D from DC121 on 2021/10/13 20:25
UPDATE: they fixed the issue promptly and even sent me a message about it. Better customer service than I expected! ORIGINAL REVIEW: I rely on OneDrive folders all the time in my work. I also regularly use my iPad as a work device. Unfortunately, the Files app doesn’t work with OneDrive hardly at all on my device. I can read files fine, but whenever I try to copy something to OneDrive I get the error “could not communicate with a helper application.” No documentation on how to fix this. Please get it sorted out, Microsoft.
Automatic Uploads
by Magnum P90 on 2021/10/12 21:32
Biggest issue, I don’t need all my things taking up cloud storage. I can’t allow certain features without OneDrive trying to automatically store everything on here and it’s a hassle having to delete them over and over again.
Can’t Save/Move files to SharePoint document library
by jPhone6# on 2021/10/12 19:33

Responsive!
by djgeiger0620 on 2021/10/11 12:12
Microsoft is quick to resolve issues, and are listening for feedback to improve their apps in general. OneDrive works well and helps to keep our business files organized.
Great, but one problem
by thatguy Landon on 2021/10/10 20:20
Without it, I wouldn’t be able to make YouTube videos. Now today though when I would enter it would kick me out. So I deleted it, knowing if I redownloaded it would save all my stuff. But now it’s taking FOREVER to load.
Can’t disable “On this day” feature
by Bikrrr on 2021/10/09 13:40
There’s no way to disable the “On this day” feature in OneDrive for iOS like you can in OneDrive for Android. It just wastes screen real estate in the Photos tab, where my primary goal is to view my latest photos, not reminisce about the past.
Just crashes
by Kautexas on 2021/10/08 14:21
App crashes constantly. App updated, but I still can’t open it on iPhone 12 Pro It started crashing again. So I deleted, restarted my phone, and reinstalled. Still just crashed non stop. So, I did everything again, and I still can’t get it to open. What’s the deal MSFT?
Promising, but not there yet
by Rynnessa on 2021/10/08 14:13
Needs to be way better at understanding the difference between “photos”, “screenshots”, and “random image file that some app on my desktop pc saved into My Documents which auto backed up to OneDrive”. That latter category is not something I ever want to see featured in “memories from this day in prior years” for example. Or just when viewing my photos in general.
Can’t handle large files
by Unknown Appster on 2021/10/08 11:25
Useful tool, when it works correctly, but if you are trying to work with a large file, such as a complicated PowerPoint presentation, it might not sync correctly on certain devices such as the iPad. Up-to-date version on one device, older, out of date version on another device. Same presentation works perfectly off-line. At times, very slow to open files and even slower to save and close. If it opens at all! Many posts to community forum and emails back-and-forth with tech support resulted in no improvement. No phone support available. Only back-and-forth dozens of times over days and no fix yet. Frustrating. If it was reliable and worked correctly, it would be great.
I’m sold!
by CakesysEyeCandy on 2021/10/07 13:42
I’m not to computer or phone savvy when it comes to all of the gidgets of gadgets but I will tell you when my hard drive went out I cried and cried because I thought I had lost everything. Somehow this cloud saved every picture clear back to 2007! I’m sold, I am extremely thankful and I’ll give you five stars every day. Thank you!
5 stars
by bpmh203 on 2021/10/06 22:54
The only thing stopping me from throwing away my mobile devices and going to a landline are Microsoft’s software and the sanity it’s brings to everything. Usability is the lifeblood of software and hardware and at every moment of the last totally absurd years of my life, I have always thought of Microsoft as what keeps me going. Thank you to everyone who keeps me going
OneDrive app
by jpschwi on 2021/10/06 14:13
My app I downloaded looks different then the one in the App Store. It doesn’t have the camera and other options at the bottom of the screen. I use this for work to upload documents. I have to make a file then add the picture
Going from 30GB to 5GB
by faviles on 2021/10/06 03:13
I'm one of those loyal customers that Microsoft punished by lowering the storage capacity from 30GB to 5GB without a valid reason. This is ridiculous in modern times (2017+) so I’ll give you one star until my last breath. /Two years later (2019); It appears that Dark MODE is more important for Microsoft than a good amount of free storage for your customers. /Four years later (2021); Nothing new! //
Unreliable Lately
by myokeeh on 2021/10/06 01:00
The app has been unreliable lately. It keeps crashing. I can't do what I need to do. Not sure if it's backing up my photos anymore.
Awesome App !

Not in a good state
by Anarcho-Engineer on 2021/10/05 16:28
Over the past year, I’ve become disappointed in this app. The biggest issue i experience is that files won’t update, meaning files that are supposed to be there don’t show up. No matter how much I swipe refresh, restart the app, sign out/sign in, uninstall/install, I just can’t get certain files to show up. If this app is supposed to give me easier file access, then this bug makes it unusable at best. My second issue is the private vault. Each time I want to use the vault I must set it up. So each time I must acknowledge what it is, 2FA, and setup FaceID. EACH TIME. No. Just No.
On this day photo feature broken
by Druskey55 on 2021/10/05 13:50
The “On This Day” photo feature used to show ALL photos from a specific date from previous years on one screen. For example, if you had 10 photos it showed 10 thumbnails for that year all at once so you could see them at a glance. Now it may only show part of them (sometimes just one) even if you have 10 from that date forcing you to click one photo and swipe through the other hidden photos one by one. I mainly use One Drive to back up photos, and loved this feature, so please fix this.
Love It
by Hdbomar92 on 2021/10/04 22:20

Can’t call to get help
by DweaverVT on 2021/10/04 20:07
Microsoft got rid of customer service. When you call it says that it has moved on line and the online stuff is terrible. They use to have good customer service now you are left to be frustrated.

Don’t use for business and personal

If your employer prevents the app from sharing to other apps, forget using this for personal use. Very frustrating so I switched to iCloud!
Super Slow to Load and Constantly Crashes
by FitzRml on 2021/10/04 07:41
Can’t recommend OneDrive storage service because of how awful the OneDrive App is. It takes a super long time to load and is constantly crashing. You’d think it would have gone through more testing before releasing. Also, lacking some common features like searching for text within a text file. It’s great that it can show be the text file but searching within that file for text is a basic function that should be there in the app.
Love it!

Vault locking in app is annoying
by jdevans4agec on 2021/10/03 02:02
Recent update made the vault timeout on me several times. I was in the middle of uploading and/or renaming photos/scans, and they were lost even after unlocking the vault again. I haven’t found a setting in the app to change vault unlock period. I really like this app but it needs some work.
It’s OK
by Employee#427 on 2021/10/02 23:48
Biggest issue I have is with sharing. On iPhone the keyboard will disappear shortly after clicking on the field to enter the recipients email. On iPad I don’t have this problem but the app will crash after clicking on the email.

Nonsense Notifications are Annoying
by AntRubano on 2021/10/02 14:02
Microsoft isn’t an experience. I need Windows to launch apps and Onedrive to store files. Stop adding bloated nonsense. Getting a notification every day to look back at memories, among other things, is annoying. Why is all this nonsense on by default. Onedrive nor Microsoft is that important. Stay out of my notifications..
Probably the best cloud storage service available!
by kato_flex on 2021/10/02 10:41
I’ve tried all the cloud services out, everything from drive to Dropbox and Box. And over the years Onedrive has really formed into one of the better 3rd party cloud apps available.

Most basic tasks not working
by Apfelmaennchen on 2021/10/01 06:11
I have two Onedrives, one for personal and one for another purpose that needs to be jeo separate. I this app I can only access one or the other by having to sign out and back in every single time. Microsoft Office apps on the other hand can juggle my two OneDrives in parallel no problem - how is that possible that the dedicated app is still not able to do that..?? Also, I can go to Share > Copy Link, and for a moment I get a notification that says "Anyone with this link can edit this item" - why is the less safe option of letting others change my files the default..? It should be Read-Only by default, and controlling it should be possible the moment I share, not in a separate second step via Details. But even then, I cannot Read-Only share a file anyone who has the link - my most common scenario. I can only edit-share with everyone, and read-only can only be shared with specific people - how stupid a design is that!?! [Update Fall 2021 - all above described issues unchanged. Ridiculous shortcomings.]

Would be great if they’d add swiping to photos again
by RewritingDavid on 2021/09/28 00:17
I’ve used OneDrive for years now and had no issues. But they’ve removed the ability to swipe through photos and it makes the process of viewing/showing others multiple images clunky due to how you have to back out of each photo to the folder it’s contained in to view a new image. Not sure why that was done but it’s a pretty bad user experience.
Can’t swipe anymore
by VisualFeast on 2021/09/27 21:46

Automatically shares and downloads…..
by Roth Family on 2021/09/27 21:36
After several months, my account decided to automatically download thousands of files and photos to laptop and iPad cause me to have to erase and reset both devices. Neither can handle the amount of storage that I have on OneDrive (that’s why I have OneDrive). VERY frustrating…….
Easier
by only Jesus rates a 5 star on 2021/09/27 21:24
Easier to use, more intuitive than DropBox. I transfer files from my PC to my phone or IPad. Just don’t forget to activate it on your PC. And if your Windows sometimes gets slow, especially on boot up, turn this app off. Could be the problem.

I recently updated my iPhone XS to iOS 14.8 and then iOS 15. I may have also had an update to my OneDrive app too but can't recall. Now I am unable to swipe between photos that are saved within a single folder. Will this be fixed?
Make a suggestion or improvement
by 没用过随机给分 on 2021/09/25 10:24
Set up a button to rotate the video manually as it plays, rather than relying on the phone to rotate it automatically. Sometimes the phone can't rotate when the screen is locked to rotate, so you need to manually press the button to make it easier.
Instant crash upon opening

One drive said if I didn’t purchase extra space they were going to freeze my account. Well I got to looking and some had duplicated my pictures and documents not once but 2 to 4 times. I had to go in and delete them all out. Is this how you drum up business? DebraCarrier
Where's the swiping??
by atenwalt on 2021/09/23 17:41
I LOVED this storage app--until with the last update the swiping pics from left to right & vice versa just vanished. BRING IT BACK!!! Now you have to back all the way out of each photo you view in order to view the next photo😢😢😢

Ranks below all other cloud applications
by B-Rad2020 on 2021/09/21 12:37
Microsoft makes a ton of really great apps. Sadly, One Drive is not one of them. I’ve been using cloud storage services for 14 years (since Dropbox started) In that time, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by many newcomers to the market. I would recommend my top 3 cloud services to anyone. My mid tier cloud services are functional and have interesting things about them that keep me working with them. However, One Drive ranks dead last and I wouldn’t recommend it to my worst enemy. If you wanna save your company time, money, and headaches; then I suggest you scroll down and read a few of the reasons One Drive is so awful. 1. Box 2. Dropbox 3. Google Drive 4. PCloud 5. iCloud 6. All other cloud services 7. Microsoft’s One Drive So why is Microsoft One Drive so bad? Because it has never worked properly on any of the Macs at our creative agency, All the other cloud services get it right, but One Drive struggles. Below are just a few of the reasons One Drive is awful: - Hogs CPU It doesn’t run quietly in the background and will slow your machine to a crawl causing other apps to crash as your laptop fan works overtime to support One Drive. - It stops syncing without alerting you. So you’ll never know if your phone and laptop are AC try ally syncing files. - It struggles with names and file types - buggy and crashes all the time. - honestly I have to reinstall it every few weeks just so it will work again. - every time you relaunch the app, it has to rest c everything all over again.

by Danie153445222567 on 2021/09/11 18:43
Click the web link -> goes to app -> goes to web browser -> says, “why’d you not use our app?!” Also, if you select many files to download, many of them will fail, and then it’ll say “sorry, here’s the list, try again later” and reset your selection, so you’ll have to go over thousands of photos again. What a piece of garbage!

Worst app on my iPad!!
by Jerferd on 2021/09/10 17:44
This is literally the worst and most frustrating app I have ever used. It lacks the most basic, obvious functionality that every single Microsoft computer already has, like the ability to copy and duplicate files, view the entire file path in search results (currently only the destination file is shown, which is virtually useless), or globally sort folders for thumbnail/list view or sort order. You have to individually sort every single folder for both of these factors, and redo all of that sorting if you ever delete and redownload the app (which you will need to, since it’s frequently buggy). The search function works inconsistently, and often misses files that I know perfectly well exist, and this leaves me to go hunting for things manually a lot of the time. I recently had to use my computer to locate a file that I should have been able to find on my iPad, but which wasn’t coming up in the app at all. My MacBook found it instantly using the Finder, though, and showed me the entire file path details. I often have to use my laptop or other apps to locate files like this, but still cannot do it on my iPad, because OneDrive refuses to open the search function to third-party apps that work better, like Files or Documents. I have reported these problems to Microsoft countless times over the years, and am always glibly told to go and “vote” for what should be the most intrinsic of functions, and which literally EVERY SINGLE OTHER FILE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM ALREADY HAS. I have in fact voted, many times, but nothing meaningful has ever changed or improved. I’m still left struggling with these major deficiencies, which would be incredibly simple to implement, and it vastly affects my workflow and frustration level. It’s abundantly clear that they use this “voting” system to simply avoid having to make significant changes to the app. In recent years the only upgrades I’ve seen have been an entirely useless home page, and a “secure” folder that I didn’t need, since one would hope that all my folders are secure!! So today I have canceled my Microsoft 365 subscription, and am moving my files to iCloud, which should work seamlessly with my iPad, and is cheaper to boot. Goodbye, OneDrive. You had your chance.
Love OneDrive, loath the app
by YourLocalTherapist on 2021/09/10 15:12
OneDrive is consistently the most problematic app on my phone. Slow as molasses, constantly crashes, not very user friendly, never syncs my photos, and the worse part is if you have to change screens out of the app for even a split second the app will automatically refresh and kick you out of what you were doing. It is such a headache to have to click through dozens of folders to get back to what I was doing just because I exited the app to quickly answer a text. I tried to leave this as feedback, but the app literally crashed every time I clicked to report a problem. Do an update that actually fixes some of these problems for once, please. Update (10/2/20) most recent update still didn’t fix anything. Tried submitting feedback but of course it crashed before I could send it. Keeps showing all my folders are empty. Can’t access any of my files. This is a major problem. I rely on OneDrive guys. Fix it please. Update (9/10/21) still an absolute piece of garbage app. I love OneDrive the cloud but this app never ever improves. Such a joke. I know the five star rating is from fake reviews.
Unwanted photo backup
by Richard.E. on 2021/09/10 04:15
I saw a notification saying that I could speed up my photo upload. I didn’t know it decided to upload the photos I already backed up to icloud. Now I have thousands of photos that I had to delete one at a time to delete from OneDrive almost one at a time because neither the photo selector or recycle bin have a select all.
Publisher
by Chryscare on 2021/09/09 00:27
So what happened to the Microsoft Publisher and why can’t I get it on the Apple devices? I cannot even get it at the website so how in the world can I open and edit publisher documents or for that matter even look at them?
Eats available storage
by dll31p on 2021/09/07 19:25
App consumes half my iPad storage even though I have 0 offline files (OneDrive allows you to download some stuff so it’s always available). It seems to be storing them anyway, and there is no option to clear out its cache. The app is also poorly integrated with the Apple ecosystem. E.g., if you scribble a note on a PDF in “working memory” (right...) prepare to re-upload the entire file again. Each time you write something new...
Embarrassing app
by tsoglani on 2021/09/06 19:32
I used Dropbox, box, google drive, synology drive and opendrive. OneDrive is the worst of all. Continuously logging me out extremely slow, pathetic error logging, and never syncs (ios). It is always in “Setting things up” state. Why can’t they get this right?????? Let me know at YOUR convenience.
Stubborn Microsoft
by mattsgreat5 on 2021/09/06 13:00
Love Onedrive as a service but this app has a fundamental flaw that hasn’t been addressed despite reports of it coming in since 2016: no ability to change default folder view. You can change it on a per-folder basis but it always resorts to thumbnail view. Thumbnail view is useless to me. Such a simple thing to implement too.
One drive review
by jagu jivan patel on 2021/09/05 18:23
Great cloud system has varied benefits to working with this particular cloud drive.
Poor substitute for Dropbox
by mikkeljr on 2021/09/05 08:29
This app is inferior in so many ways I can’t even list them all. But most frustrating is that when I tried to submit feedback to Microsoft via the app it erroneously informed me that the app was not up-to-date, and therefore did not submit the feedback that I spent five minutes typing. The app was in fact up-to-date, so besides the bug that I was trying to report there’s another one in their reporting system!
Awesome alternative
by raemae2u on 2021/09/02 16:42
It’s a vital to have to a backup from my computer! When I am not able to send pdfs from my computer, I just pull up the app and send in my assignment! Love it!
Not syncing in real time anymore
by Chris8171993 on 2021/09/02 16:17
Across all my devices OneDrive is no longer syncing in real time. Heads up for ppl using multiple devices especially if you are giving a presentation
Amazing Application
by elenagevene on 2020/10/06 02:59
I researched multiple applications to back up all my devices ie phones, lap tops, and desktops. I took the time to compare each detail between all the options available. Given the amount of storage needed and price I chose to go with OneDrive and it was the best decision. I was able to back up information on all my devices and coincidently a few weeks after my Mac book of 12+ years gave me the black screen of death. What would have been a devastating moment of photos and documents that would have been lost turned into a humorous moment knowing nothing was lost aside from the 12+ year old laptop. I was so grateful I had backed up everything to OneDrive because I didn’t loose anything nor did I have to go through the trouble of paying someone to retrieve the data I would have lost. It was all already saved to OneDrive which I can access from anywhere on any device. Do yourself a favor and bite the bullet and get OneDrive! You can thank me later.
The Best For Online Storage and Sync Files
by Kedna78 on 2019/09/18 17:12
I can’t praise enough OneDrive. I had been using it since the SkyDrive days. Those days were storage heaven. I was able to rack up to 50 gigabytes of free storage. Well, OneDrive came to life and changed things. Some improved and some got canned like the amount of free storage. That is the only reason it I take one star from it. The good stuff it’s what in my opinion, makes OneDrive the number one app for online storage. Easy to sync files across Windows PC and IOS mobile devices. The integration of OneDrive with Windows Personal files can be somehow problematic since by default makes OneDrive upload everything you put on those folders. If you don’t want every file on those folders getting uploaded and take precious space just change the settings on Windows to stop OneDrive to upload the content on those folders. I found less complicated to just create a new folder on the system Desktop and name it “My OneDrive” then create sub-folders for E-books, Pictures, spreadsheets and so on... then drop there everything I want to sync across mobile devices. That way I have more control over what goes into One Drive instead of letting Windows do it for me. Also makes me be more organized with the content I own.
Good but needs to be MUCH better
by JP Mears on 2020/04/23 22:28
It does what it needs to in terms of cloud storage on the iPad. It’s best if you have an office 365 subscription so that you get the 1TB of storage, which is great for me because it allows me to store all my files easily. It could be A LOT BETTER though. First, it does have files app integration which for some reason only allows you to copy files from the iPad to OneDrive, not to simply move them. Second, they say it has multi window support for iPadOS 13 but not really. Each time you try to add another window, you get an error message saying that you can only open a file in another window, not another file browser. Also you are very limited in terms of sort and view options, you can only view files in a list or as icons. When viewing photos and videos with the icon view, you can’t see the file name and can only do so by clicking the info button for each individual file. It would be much better if you had other view options like some sort of cover flow type view or something else. Also, the scan option is nice but it would be really nice if it had an option to scan book/textbook pages.
Saving to OneDrive is now a pain
by NicksOtherName on 2020/08/28 12:15
UPDATE: still don't have integration in Save to Files, but I'll give back a couple of stars because I can save to both OneDrive accounts Using the OneDrive option out of the Share menu. This method seems more reliable than Save to Files, so some improvement there and not looking back. The method to switch accounts is a little counter-intuitive, but it's definitely there - just took a minute for this impatient reviewer to find it. Still wish I could save directly to SharePoint - that would get the app to 5 stars. Both app and iOS updates recently installed. Had slightly flaky results from "Save to Files" function, but could manage last week to save to either Personal or Work OneDrive accounts. Now, not so much. No OneDrive entries in Save to Files. If I share and select OneDrive, oy the personal account is accessible. Please fix support for Save to Files so that I can reliably copy images, attachments, etc. to OneDrive, OneDrive for Business and connected SharePoint sites. This is basic expected functionality in a cloud storage access app.
Great App for Saving Everything!
by Reazorsharp on 2019/07/04 13:04
This works great for saving everything- documents, pictures, downloads, and videos. It can be set up to upload automatically as you take pictures or videos. It saves things in their own file folders by dates, making it easier to find what your looking for. It saves information about the pictures, videos, and files. I have a 1T so I have more than enough room for anything. You can delete items and if you accidentally delete something you can find it in the trash file & recover it if you need too. I’ve never had any problems with it. I can also access it from any device using the app or the website. This is a great thing to have. Never worry about loosing anything from a virus on computer/laptop/phone because this can be accessed in many ways.
Typical Microsoft Crudware treating people like kids
by jamesk479 on 2021/06/14 04:10
People use stuff like this for work, at least I do. So get rid of or let me have some basic options to get rid of distractions. No need for stupid recent documents. What I did last week is rarely relevant today. No need for stupid photo memories of work pics either. How about let me decide where u start the app at, preferably at some root folder with no irrelevant distractions. It is called having a clean interface. Ipad is obviously used on the go. If I am doing work on here in OneDrive it is probably a once a month emergency type thing on the go, and I doubt I am the only one. I dont need your stupid distractions that just slow things. Stop dumbing down things for amateurs and noobs. It only makes it more confusing for them in the long run especially once u change everything again which u will do too often once u realize how stupid it is. This is why far too many people are terrible at basic file management. I know where i keep my important files and current work. Why dont you? I cant even tell your app where. You do realize it is 2021 and we have things like AI, right???? But this is worse than 1980s software. Get with the 21st century!!!
Wonderful to use & frustrating to understand
by LeetahCammy on 2019/03/16 17:53
Once I started using OneDrive to access my files on multiple devices, I was very satisfied and happy. This has been extremely helpful for me, and for sharing files with others. My frustration is trying to make sense of using OneDrive. It is not very user friendly on instructions. I had to cut files from my primary folders on my computer and paste them in folders on my desktop (or anywhere else), because I could not get the system to only save the files I wanted. You’re supposed to be able to choose which files go to OneDrive, but I still can’t get the system to do that so things like pictures and PDFs, which take a lot of space, have been moved out of My Pictures and My Documents. If you can make sense of how that works, you’ll probably fall in love with this for being able to access files. If you’re concerned about losing files, you can save them directly to OneDrive, as compared to having it on your computer. Good luck and enjoy.
Good but frustrating
by prlaba on 2021/06/18 11:30
OneDrive is my go-to cloud storage system, allowing me to store all of my files online and share them easily among my various devices (PC, iPad and iPhone). My Office 365 subscription gives me 1 TB of storage, more than enough for my needs. The IOS OneDrive app does a good job displaying your files and folders and lets you easily navigate between them. It works especially well with the Office apps, auto-saving your files as you work with them. Two major complaints about the app: 1) If I navigate to a nested folder within my OneDrive folder, switch to a different app and then return to the OneDrive app, it often “resets” to its root folder, forcing me to re-navigate to where I was. This is even more frustrating if I’m viewing one of my files (e.g., a PDF file) within OneDrive. Upon return to OneDrive from another app, the file is closed and I’m back at the root folder, forcing me to reopen the file I was viewing. I have a feeling this is due to limited memory space, but just dumping me out of my current context seems a poor way of handing the memory restriction. 2) OneDrive is not well integrated with IOS or other apps. For example, if I want to save an online PDF file I find while using one of the browser apps (Safari, Chrome, etc.), there’s an option to save it to DropBox but not to OneDrive. I usually end up having to save the file to Dropbox, import it to the Adobe Reader app, save it to OneDrive from there, and delete the copy on Dropbox.
Not the best imo
by _kayysea on 2020/01/07 05:22
I mainly use this app for gaming clips that I record and need to share on to my social media. I’ve tried really hard to like this app but it only gives you 5gb for the free package and then if you want more gb’s you have to upgrade and start paying 6.99 or more (can’t remember how much the last package is) every month. Imo to me that’s not worth it b/c I only use this for gaming clips to save onto my phone like I said. Even though I do have the extra space in my OneDrive, my clips seem to NEVER pop up in my folders even when I’m constantly deleting and moving it back over again to see if it will appear. I just find it very frustrating to have to deal with that especially when I still have space and idk, the app just seems to process really slow most times. If I could find a better and easier app for something like this, I’d uninstall this one in a heartbeat. Business wise I can’t speak my opinion on it if you’re specifically using it for that. I’m assuming if you upgrade to the “higher” packages you may have a better experience, I have no idea but I personally don’t like OneDrive at all.
Beware
by DeTate on 2020/01/02 09:49
Your files will be moved. Most of the links any of your programs need will be lost. The 2 reasons I have seen: (1) when it moved a documents folder to online, it ran out of storage space. Only two of 5 subfolders were available online. Excel could not find the documents that were moved to a Temporary One Drive folder on my C:drive. Even as my computers Administrator, I was not allowed access to the documents! (2). Third party applications like Ultrafractal, Photofusion, Photoshop, Illustrator, ...etc. could not locate saved files or templates or albums! Trying to uninstall One Drive was a big mistake since they changed User permissions! The One Drive support team helped me recover my lost files and I can now recreate artwork, correct photographs, find formulas in my excel worksheets...etc. However, One Drive’s file relocations continue to haunt me as I discover other programs that are no longer linked to originating software. On a side note, now that France is taxing online service providers, maybe someone at Microsoft will see online service as the new source of income for local, state and federal that, no doubt, legislators will never give up trying to get their fair share of.
Great for groups working together
by SProwett on 2019/08/07 17:04
I actually moved from a Windows phone quite a few years ago and brought this with me. I and most if my family use it on our computers and phones so we can share important information and ideas about upcoming events! I also keep memory notes to myself in various sections which I can share or not as I choose. Great product. It’s gotten much top heavier over the years. It started as a very stramlined note taker that allowed one drive storage and sharing. Loved that! Not so sure I like all the enhancements. And the missing star is also because sometime recently, I assume in an update, or it may be linked to my change on my iPhone to larger type since I am sight impaired? It now doesn’t show a text cursor, and if you hit backspace delete the display jumps quickly to the top if the note and back down before letting you proceed. It’s dizzying and nauseating to say the least. A good product, but getting retired if I need to do much editing.
Overall good but...
by Keith in Tucson on 2021/01/27 11:46
As a user who uses Windows desktop computers and Microsoft office, but also has an iPad and an iPhone, this has been a godsend, however in the update process critical features frequently become broken. Password-protected Microsoft office files can not be opened on OneDrive in iOS, but can on Windows platforms. Unfortunately, when OneDrive is installed, it prohibits launching of a file via the browser based app A workaround to the problem of password-protected documents is using the iOS version of the Microsoft Office app on the iPhone, however iPad users cannot use it unless they have an active subscription to Office 365 because there is a screen size limit for the free version prohibiting use on the iPad. Hoping they fix the broken inability to decrypt/open password-protected file via the iOS OneDrive app. Has been broken for a while now 🙁 UPDATE January 27, 2021: since iOS was updated to version 14.4, this problem is resolved.
Power Users, this app isn’t for you.
by tonygaglio on 2020/04/06 00:28
For the last two years I have submitted feedback and notices to the OneDrive team, sent a UserVoice, and posted in the r/OneDrive reddit. All ignored. Camera upload is broken. It works until it doesn’t, gets stuck on “setting things up” and flat out stalls on most videos/images. When it works, it’s nice. But that’s rare. I hate to be critical of the app, but this is beyond ridiculous. Camera upload is a critical feature that is surprising they haven’t spent more addressing. I’ve experienced problems with camera upload on iPad 2, iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone 7 and iOS 11, iOS 12, and the iOS 13 beta. I’ve had problems over fiber 1000mps upload connection and 4G LTE. The competitors (AMZN and GOOG) apps work perfectly fine. Please Microsoft, fix this app. Good luck streaming videos from OneDrive with you have greater than 1 TB of filled stored, 40,000+ files. The app just won’t load. Unfortunately this is the case for my account. No videos load and the overall performance is sluggish under heavy load of files. It can’t handle fast searches when you have libraries of >1,000 small files.
Can’t use it to judge — stuck on advertisement!
by jcbroadbent_1961 on 2020/06/09 22:31
I’m trying not to give Microsoft OneDrive a bad review, but I can’t use it to know if it’s worthwhile. Logging on, then scrolling through the pages quickly brings me to an advertisement for Premium OneDrive services, including a 7 day free trial to Microsoft Office 365. There is a little X in the upper right corner to cluck on and close the advertisement, but it doesn’t function! I can’t go backwards and I can’t go forward — unless I want to read the Terms of Service or Sign up for a monthly subscription! Finally, I gave up trying to delete the page which was preventing me from moving forward and actually using the app. I signed up for the Premium Service making a mental note to cancel my subscription before my 7 day trial expired and they started debuting me for $6.99 every month. The next time I opened the app I was confronted with same same advertisement, even though I had already signed up for it. BOTTOM LINE: Attention Microsoft! Either fix your ad so I can click out of it, or delete it from the OneDrive app!!! This doesn’t help me want to use Microsoft products!!!
Accessibility
by Wuest2 on 2020/07/31 17:26
I like One Drive a lot. However, when it’s icon comes up as an option to send or save something into it, it does not provide me an option to create a new folder or to select the folder I would want to send or save my file in. Yes, I can do save it that way but I have to go to “Save to Files” first, then select it as an option - an additional 2 or 3 steps more. Also, if I create a new folder, I am unable to paste a copied set of text into it - I am only allowed to save a file or graphics into it. Apple’s iCloud storage allows me to do all that. Unless you upgrade to include those plus other features more, users like myself would be inclined to eventually move most of our storage to Apple’s iCloud - which is also cheaper than your monthly subscription. This is just a suggestion that you hopefully will take into consideration. I love your Office Suite - it’s the only one that keeps me using One Drive.
Needs more capabilities for multitasking (iPadOS 14)
by Ahmed Kh. Goran on 2020/10/14 08:20
My review is based on my usage and use cases, which is mostly using iPad as productivity and office machine, specifically the most two apps I am using are MS Outlook and MS OneDrive, aside from the many useful features the OneDrive has that makes my daily work more fun and easy, but it still need bug fixes and improvements to support the new iPadOS features! Like for instance if I need to save attachment from outlook (for example PDF file), I can’t simply drag from Outlook and drop it to OneDrive (although it works vice versa!), I have to select file by file save it through a long processes (Peres and hold the attached net, select the destination and click save) and this should repeat for every file I want to save, I can not select all files in specific email and save them in one processes, I have to do that one by one! Drag and drop feature could have solved all these challenge. Please update OneDrive to be compatible with new iPadOS 14 features.
Solid update with the recent version
by JB_Seattle on 2018/01/31 05:44
The most recent update is everything I hoped for. I stuck by OneDrive as they slowly made their way to full iOS support. The recent update takes it the rest of the way - it is outstanding. OneDrive for iOS is no longer a second class citizen. The OneDrive app is solid, with support for document previews, Live Photos, caching and better sorting. Drag and drop is also robust and well implemented. Don’t use it as much at the moment on my iPhone but found it pretty intuitive on the iPad. OneDrive is now also fully integrated in Files, if you prefer that. Surprisingly I’m now finding I prefer OneDrive app interface instead - better organization features than Files. Still, it’s nice to use files to throw apps between cloud services and local storage in a unified interface.
Most basic tasks not working
by Apfelmaennchen on 2021/10/01 06:11
I have two Onedrives, one for personal and one for another purpose that needs to be jeo separate. I this app I can only access one or the other by having to sign out and back in every single time. Microsoft Office apps on the other hand can juggle my two OneDrives in parallel no problem - how is that possible that the dedicated app is still not able to do that..?? Also, I can go to Share > Copy Link, and for a moment I get a notification that says "Anyone with this link can edit this item" - why is the less safe option of letting others change my files the default..? It should be Read-Only by default, and controlling it should be possible the moment I share, not in a separate second step via Details. But even then, I cannot Read-Only share a file anyone who has the link - my most common scenario. I can only edit-share with everyone, and read-only can only be shared with specific people - how stupid a design is that!?! [Update Fall 2021 - all above described issues unchanged. Ridiculous shortcomings.]
Good but More Potential to Fill Capability Gaps
by Craig's iTunes Account on 2021/01/21 12:26
A great start and is stable. A few items to note are that while it supports the Personal Vault storage, you cannot edit files stored there within their native apps like Excel etc. you have to move the files out of the vault to edit! It kind of defeats the purpose as it is then only useful to store legacy items vs. sensitive files you use routinely. If this can be enhanced to allow for editing of files in personal Vault it would be fantastic! The user interface is also a bit clunky. It does not allow you to default the view to more traditional list type views, instead it always opens to a screen with large folders that have the file names cut off. There is Lao no ability to sort by name, date etc. Small enhancements like this could make the app ideal but the Personal Vault item above is key, a. Great feature that is largely unusable for current files. Please consider this enhancement!
Good App/OneSimpleProblem
by Prince_The_OG on 2021/04/04 23:38
I gives this a 4 star because if one simple problem. I can’t save my videos. I can save my photos but not my videos. And I can’t edit my videos when I can’t save them. This app is really good for storage. You get extra free storage which can be pretty useful if you don’t have any storage on your pc or no more storage in your photos for phone. And when your saving something it downloads it in a instance. When your transferring data, it only takes a minute or 2. It’s basically icloud but better and you can create albums to organize your photos and videos so you don’t have e to go through them all. This app has saved me multiple times in terms of finding my card number when I needed it since I put everything into a album. You should download this app but please fix the not being able to save videos to your photos
Unreliable
by MDBoyz on 2019/03/31 16:51
If there’s anything you’d want most in a cloud storage/backup/sync service, it would be reliability. On that score, OneDrive fails in ways I’ve never experienced with Google Drive, Box or Dropbox (I use all 4). First, the iOS app constantly crashes. You open a directory to browse and it either crashes or fails to load. The bugs don’t stop there. Sort by date and for the most part it works, but there will be random files at the top (newest) that don’t belong, often more than a year old. Second, the app doesn’t sync in the background. You might think that you could use OneDrive instead of paying for iCloud to sync your photos. But with iCloud your photos always sync; no need to worry. With OneDrive you have to open the app to the photos tab before they sync. So all those great photos you took on vacation you thought were automatically syncing weren’t. Finally, the Windows PC version suffers from the same unreliability. Random files don’t sync, especially Microsoft Visio files. The app will pause itself without warning, something you’ll only find out days later when an important file is out of date. You’ll put the icon in your always-visible taskbar icons to make sure you’re warned of issues, and on the next upgrade it reverts to hiding in the extra icons pulldown. Most of the time OneDrive works. But when it doesn’t, it won’t be expected, it won’t warn you, and you’ll be as frustrated as I am.
Better Cloud Choice
by Merchantshipper on 2017/10/31 03:48
I use two cloud services. I use the Apple iCloud for work (200GB), and the Microsoft One Drive for personal (1TB). I tried both in order to compare them to see which is better, and I think MSOD is the better of the two. What I especially like is the ease of uploading folders; however, I am surprised you can’t upload folders using Microsoft Internet Explorer. Strangely enough, you must use chrome. The MSOD is better syncing capabilities. I especially like how the MSOD app can be protected With biometric password access. iCloud does not have that, so my files on the iCloud service are more vulnerable. One advantage of the iCloud service is that you can buy smaller memory like 200 GB for $2.99/m, whereas MS sells 1 TB for $69/y, which is high, but it comes with Office 365. Both services should offer 500GB.
Only Organizes New Uploads
by zhugedai12 on 2018/09/23 16:02
The September 23, 2018 update says it is now organizing my camera roll folder by year and month. This is a great idea. This would be a better idea if it also organized the zillions of photos and videos in my camera roll that are not included because they were uploaded before the update. So unless this feature is gonna big to be included then please include the option to disable automatically sorting new photos and videos into folders like the website version of OneDrive has allowed for a few weeks now. I don’t want half of my camera roll organized and he other half a bloody mess, it’s all or nothing. If that feature is not going to be included then please also rerun the option of scrolling the button on the right up and down and automatically listing which month and year the photos and videos are from so I can still find stuff.
Intuitive Digital Document Storage Drive
by stellar parallax on 2019/06/06 06:53
Very easy to learn, visually offers 3 different screen view of your files - my favorite is the one where you see folder icons (although I wonder if there a way to add color options for each folder, and then maybe digital sticky notes to mark important documents of different sizes and various color palettes) appeals to a different type of person, I love the file folder icon layout very grateful! Taught several realtor benefit of using OneDrive and they caught on quickly, so thank you very much. Also can you please add a system that alerts each agent of important deadlines? And finally could we make it so you can take certain files out of a folder and add the removed to broader group? Y’all have created wonderful software!
Corruption to promote Office
by The Way Climax on 2019/09/27 13:21
A while ago, OneDrive could open any Office documents directly from the app for the general purpose of viewing. During an update, they removed that feature and made you download Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to view it to promote these Office apps. This is seriously corrupt and I want OneDrive to be able to view documents without having to download other apps. I would still be fine with Office if they work nicely and smoothly. Office apps are buggy, glitchy and they have multiple errors that I hate, like automatically editing a Read Only word doc. I think Microsoft knows this and has the ability to fix it perfectly, but they are just toning down the app on iOS to make it feel worse than on Windows. Onedrive and the Office suite used to be pretty good and not buggy at all, but recent efforts have made them near unusable, with new interface and crappy scrolling. If Microsoft does not fix this ASAP, I will stop using Office and OneDrive on my iPhone and tell everyone of your dirty practices.
Useful but Why Does it Need Location Services Continuously

This app is very useful for back up in the sinking between your iPhone and other devices. I have turned on photo upload in the background but it doesn’t really work very well unless you have location services turned on all the time which eats up battery life. There is no good reason to need location services all the time just to upload photos. Plus uploading of large videos often hangs or stalls because of this. Other than that it’s a useful app but they need to really fix this. UPDATE: I understand the background services that require you to turn on location ask the time is an iOS issue. But I often get one our more pictures in photos that just won’t upload. I have to restart my phone sometimes to get it to upload. Forcing the app closed or turning off connection doesn’t work.
App use to be better overall but there’s new changes that I don’t like
by Jlrodjr on 2021/02/19 05:05
Biggest issue now is that the tags feature is no longer available and any tags that were on the files you manually put and onedrive automatically put are gone so can’t even search through tags that already existed on the files before the change. Also a major change that make this once very good cloud app very convenient when searching other than tags was the ability to search by specific words through your document files and on photos and screen shots themselves which was a great feature but no longer works. I have been a 365 subscriber for several years but with those 2 features i just listed has made me start looking in to a different cloud service and app to store and backup my stuff. Hoping before I find a different cloud I like better that microsoft brings back those features so I won’t need to change to a different providers cloud that does have those features.
very disappointed Especially when working with pictures
by SamS_GTUSA on 2018/08/22 13:07
I have purchased 365 Licenses for me and my family With which Microsoft offers one terabyte a onedrive, and I primarily use one drive to back up our pictures. I don’t usually write reviews but because I got very annoyed with one drive and it’s slow performance and many errors while managing pictures, I got fed up with it. Yes we have lot of pictures and duplicates, so I have been trying to consolidate them, but every time I try to do so, I get frustrated by onedrive’s perforamce. I try to select multiple file and delete. Not only it take a long time to refresh, and no my download upload internet speed is not slow , I have highest offered by bright House fiber optics. Too many times onedrive will freeze, that is she using a desktop, other it shuts down if I am using the app on my IPhone. Bottom line, I am disappointed the most because my expectations of a paid for MICROSOFT product to be close to perfect and this is exactly the opposite.
Used to be good
by Vanbushi on 2017/12/27 09:16
I have been using Onedrive for a few months now (1TB). Everything used to work really nice. It was nice to have everything from my Xbox One, PC, and phone all synced up. FIXED -*Since I have upgraded my phone from an iPhone 6S to and iPhone X, I have been having crashing issues. I’ll start the app and it will load just fine. After a moment or two the app will freeze up and crash. I went to the MS troubleshooting page. It says to delete the app, restart the phone, and then redownload the app. I did all the steps. Still having the same issues. I’ll give the developer a week or so to come up with a solution, if there isn’t one in a timely manner, I will be canceling my subscription, and move onto another cloud service. If the app is fixed, I will review and edit my rating. Until then it’s a 1 Star. - FIXED Pros: Nice syncing for all of your devices. Pricing is not bad for the amount of storage you get. Cons: You can’t have more than one personal account synced. I’d like to be able to have my wife back up her phone to my storage, so that I wouldn’t need to purchase an entire cloud service for her. App is currently not usable, crashes upon start up.
After the biggest update, it doesn’t keep pictures or videos in order
by Toxy24 on 2018/09/20 15:25
I’m using a iPhone 6. I would always use this app to double backup my photos and other items I needed. Back then it use to be all in order. Didn’t need to scramble around to look for the picture or video. It would be in corespondent to the iPhones photo album. Now it’s just all over the place. I can have some pictures in order but some will be just not in the right spot. Making me scratch my head saying; did I really take it this date? Even as a OneDrive Premium customer, this has been going on for about 2-3 months now. I would hope that they bring this back. It works as it’s supposed to. Don’t get me wrong, but actually finding what I’m looking for at the time it’s supposed to be there. Not diving into a old box of photos figuring out when I took the picture. I miss that feature.
Happy until now
by Mingmong36 on 2020/02/26 18:58
Have had a great experience with OD when I got a windows phone 6 or 7 years ago. I’ve since moved to an iPhone and was not impressed by iCloud so I stuck with trusty OD until the latest update on the iOS app. Total brain fart by whoever launched this without Beta-Testing. I was in a DO NOT DISTURB meeting when my phone began sounding off in my pocket. Strange because I have notifications completely turned off on all apps. What could have happened you ask? Well this morning I allowed my phone to update the 7 updates that showed up on the App Store, not sure why my notifications would reset in an update but they clearly did and now I have an extremely upset client and a boss with a scowl that would sour milk at 50 paces. Bad form MS, bad form!
Double dipping on storage
by __Richi__ on 2018/05/30 17:15
I had downloaded offline content, about 7GB, not much. Turns out that after the last few updates, The OneDrive app doesn’t see the content and has to re-download the content again. This can be check my going to General-> iPhone/iPad Storage and looking for the OneDrive app. Clicking on each of the items previously downloaded brings up the circular bar that it’s downloading it. The purpose of offline content was so it could be available offline. This doesn’t help. At least if the info that was previously there is not going to be used, let the user know and wipe it out, that way we are aware and can download it in a place where WiFi is good, so when there’s the need to use it (in a Cell location where the signal is bad) at least we can have it available. Not sure if this is replacing the same content or just placing it as an addition download, in which case it’s double-dipping.
Great... but drives me nuts
by rcmustain on 2020/08/16 11:00
I love that OneDrive let’s me access all my files and I can essentially pass off or work on documents anywhere. This isn’t especially noteworthy in the age of Dropbox and GoogleDrive, but not having to drag and drop is nice. The trade off is that I always seem to have a little red notification circle or whatever it is on the app. This drives me absolutely crazy. I went so far as to open every document and move all my pictures out... still can’t make this stupid red circle with a “1” on it disappear from the app icon. I have opened every menu option in the app, uninstalled it, reinstalled it... that stupid little circle just comes back right away. If this doesn’t bother you, then the app is no worse than any other cloud app, just slightly better than Dropbox (which I barely used, so take that with a grain of salt) and GoogleDrive because all your stuff saves automatically and unlike GoogleDrive it doesn’t try to default to crap google productivity freeware. It is loads better than iCloud Drive because your files are viewable instantly. With iCloud Drive I would save a new file into the drive and it would often take hours before I could see it on my phone app unless I restarted my phone.
Improvements required
by Mikey T Ward on 2020/07/04 00:19
Love what you have done in the past with this app but needs more work. Needs to have a way to show which folders or files I am sharing and have it show with who and a way to adjust acess levels or remove them from the shared folders or files. Also need the opetion to share files and folders like what I would do on you website but needs to be done in the app as well so we can be more predictive and can do more on each devise. Also can you also list all storage upgrade options so that if I need to buy more storage I can see all options and not just the next step up from what I have. Also make a videos tab so I can have all folder files listed in its own category so it would be easer and faster to acess those files in the app and do this to the website as well. Also need to add support of adding more than 1 personal onedrive account to the app as some of us need to separate personal filEs from ones belonging to a boys scout troop.
If this isn’t hell, then I do not know what is.
by ThrowOutTheApp on 2019/11/09 22:08
I can count on one hand the number of times that this app has worked smoothly and without errors. It is so unfortunate that it somehow weaseled its way into being a mainstay at my academic institution. Googling issues I have with the app shows me that I am not the only one, but also provides me with no help. I find myself having to do the most bass-ackwards things to even bring a LOW level of functionality to this and I would throw the whole thing in the trash if I didn’t have to use it to share information with my peers. Honestly, it seems like I fix one thing, and then something else goes wrong, and after fixing the second problem the first problem starts again or there is a new problem. THROW THIS ENTIRE APP IN THE GARBAGE. Again, I can not stress how terrible the support and functionality are for this, to the extent that I’m taking time to write this extremely negative review instead of working on projects that I need to be completing.
Office-wide use! Love it! If only...
by U2Nighthawk on 2019/08/22 22:48
I’ve got 60 people in my office using this app to upload and track vehicle receipts with the camera phone taking out the Lens app step. It’s worked terrifically and made the whole process a LOT easier! Love that!!! but... I wish there was a way to change the default file save name for those images from “scan from...” to a a personalized name like the tag number for the vehicle so it wouldn’t have to be renamed each time after the fact. It would also be really helpful to be able to more easily save an image to some holding account where it would sit when there isn’t a cell tower available to upload to the OneDrive once we’re back in range of a cell tower! Those two improvements would make this app a complete rockstar for business use in my opinion!
Photos
by Jakyyxe on 2019/06/15 06:01
So if you basically store photos here, wait for a few months and I guarantee some of your photos have been deleted without them notifying you your items have been deleted. I don’t just delete pictures without storing the pictures here in OneDrive. I had a family member that passed recently and I had pictures of us stored in one drive and going back to it, I could not find my pictures. Not in the recycling or in other folders. NO WHERE. And my sister had the same issues. She had pictures of my baby sister when she was younger and we were trying to make a collage for her in school for her project and we could not find the pictures. I know they were on OneDrive because we would go back and relive the memory on here and now our images are gone and we have no way of getting them back. I’m very upset because the pictures mean something to my family and OneDrive just deletes it like nothing.
One Drive Not Ready for Prime Time
by Frustrated Customer 1000000000 on 2020/10/03 16:40
I use OneDrive at work , home for personal files and on my iPhone. Can’t really recommend it to people. My iphone OneDrive is constantly out of date showing me old files from weeks ago that were updated recently. At work, the sync feature constantly gets stuck on some file with no help to fix or resolve it. I also can’t trust OneDrive as it has lost, destroyed or caused important personnel files to disappear forever. No backups or way to restore. I pay for a second service to backup my home files encrypted to another storage location. OneDrive has some good features and is better than iCloud, which isn’t saying much. Not interested in Google Drive as they have their nose in too much of my business as it is. OneDrive could be good if programmers would look at it like a User, instead of trying to impress their bosses with useless or incomplete features and design.
Great app. But one thing with update.
by Lopezjy on 2018/02/19 17:10
Love this app. It is my favorite and I use almost all. The only thing with this new update is that it does not allow me to make minor changes to a file name. When I save my file and name them sometimes auto correct isn’t correct (as I do this through mobile dispositions mainly), and sometimes I don’t realize I may have missed a letter in the name. However, when I go and try to fix the name in my mobile devices I have to rewrite the entire name. I can’t just add or change where I need to. This is extremely annoying, before these updates I was able to make minor changes to tiles as necessary which makes it easier than having to completely type in an entire name again.
Too many steps, too fussy, needs streamlining
by OhioBellyBly on 2019/12/26 06:10
Too many steps, too fussy, needs streamlining. I’ve been using Ind Drive fir about two years and while the concept is convenient, the eco union of saving accessing and sharing files is far fussier than it should be, with too many steps. Once I’ve downloaded Office 365 to my hard drive, all files should automatically be saved to the drive without my having to sign on repeatedly and constantly take the extra step of uploading, particularly when I’m using Google Chrome. And please don’t tell me to use Explorer; it is ugly, awkward and dies not sync across media the way Choime does. All in all, this is a clunky and over-hyped app that need a lot of streamlining
Could be amazing, but it’s not
by ;0)DAC on 2021/03/24 16:41
After much deliberation I went with One Drive for file storage and sharing. It’s been a mixed bag, but mostly disappointing. I use my iPad Pro for business - taking client notes, sending clients notes/forms, storing client data, etc. It takes multiple attempts to open One Drive before I can access any data. I open One Drive, nothing appears, I wait. Then I close the app, wait, and try again. This time I can usually see some files, but am unable to open them. So, I close the app again, wait - again, then reopen. Sometimes on the third try it works, other times it takes 4 or more attempts. When I use One Drive on my MacBook it usually works fine. I was searching for a data solution that would allow me the option of working from any device, most often my iPad Pro, accessing data seamlessly and efficiently. That has not been my experience.
powerful in anyway in bring your customer back !
by Tomshz on 2019/05/23 04:47
I have hard times in using One Driver or Microsoft new products . Everyone older enough can relate to what i am referring . Bad customers services , with virus in scary and just name a few . But , Microsoft is willing to make changes and bring innovative products into the integration with Mobile devices , even I am so unwilling to use its products , it has powers to make me change my minds. Its Office mobile products like excel and one note app, Excel mobile App has more personalized features that make works enjoyable , more convenience, and colorful .Microsoft is still and continue to be powerful in bring more innovative products for the great good of humanity. I just wish Microsoft will make products in a way toward more simple , secure yet personalized products .
Great App but doesn’t work on the IPad Pro
by MarmieMcD on 2018/07/14 02:28
I have an Ipad Pro recently issued new from my employer. I have a Microsoft 365 account through my employer and I’ve had a personal account for years. I’ve used the one drive app as well for years. However now with the 365 account I started to use the One Note app for both personal and business use. I use it across my iPhone, my iPad and my PC. The features of the App work great on my phone and my PC and even my older iPad2 but not my new iPad Pro. I cannot insert a file from OneNote as it doesn’t even show up as a location when I browse?? I’ve used the CHAT HELP on line and they switched over to an expert but then got a message that the business hours were over and I had to call back during business hours but it was 4:30 EST? This would be a great App if it worked with the insert file feature so that I could make up notes and photos and whatever??
Behind the times. By a lot.
by cajunh2o on 2019/06/02 23:33
Absolutely loved one drive at first. Now? That I decided to try and cut costs I realized how much of a mistake it was. Over 2k pictures of my kids in OneDrive. Can’t move them. A big ward why don’t you have this is a select all feature. Every other major app has it and people in forums have been asking for it for over 3 years now. Still nothing. So spent over an hour swerving each picture individually to try to download back to phone. As soon as I hit download. App crashes. Start over. Suddenly getting errors that I can’t download certain files with no explanation and app crashes again. So now my pictures are being held hostage. I can’t cut the cost because of this. Just want my pictures moved. But Microsoft and their customer service has been zero help. If I could give less than one star I would. (No computer so that’s not an option. App should accommodate any features needed for users regardless of platform)
Cancel Not Responding During Delayed Video Upload Attempt
by Healthy BP on 2020/05/02 16:03
I have very good experience with using the app. Two days ago using my iPhone 6 I tried to upload a video that may have been too long but it’s not letting me cancel the request. Have not been able to upload pictures or videos to the one drive for two days now. May 2, 2020 - additional comments I have had to delete and reload the app several times in order to upload photos from my iPhone 6. Now it is getting to the point that doesn’t work. I use the cloud storage for other reasons but copying over the photos is an important one and I am disappointed it’s not working as well since the software update to Microsoft 365 as compared to how this functioned with the label of Office 365.
Love Love Love MSOD app ! ! !
by Jennie*o1 on 2018/10/14 18:02
What on earth would I possibly due without my MSOD app? I WOULD be lost! I use it all the time! I own my own business so when i am sending files it makes it easy to convert files to pdf, word, etc.. and is easy to open the document in another app (like PDFfiller if I want to fax the document or something like that.) convenient and easy to use. They offer a ton of support if you need it. I have only two (smallish) complaints: 1.) when i am working on a document that i had uploaded to MSOD, & if i exit and then come back to it later to continue editing, the FONT will change from what i previously picked before-to-HELVITICA font. Then, i have to RE-EDIT the formatting for ALL the different sections that i had put any text in my document. Which is really odd & very annoying! 2.) when i am working on my document it will often just close out & any editing i had done will NOT saved, so if i was writing something and it just closed out, then everything that i had just done, would be LOST! It could be something in my settings for issue #1? But idk. Also my app is up to date. I use a iPad 5th Gen.
Auto camera upload
by Waffles was taken on 2017/11/13 19:23
You apparently can not auto upload pics from the camera roll to onedrive for business. This is stupid. Part of what I do at work is take pictures of random stuff that I need keep in onedrive for Business for things like evidence, etc. Microsoft seems to want me to put these evidence pics into a personal onedrive account...I’d get fired for doing that. Microsoft apparently wants me to get fired for evidence chain of custody/ethics/etc violations. Microsoft, this is not incentive for people to use your products. Microsoft, why do you care if ppl upload their camera roll to onedrive for business? So, I’m supposed to get my boss to give me the approval to pay for Dropbox Business subs for my whole team because it would allow us to work on a platform that would not violate various company policies because it would be done at the department level. Microsoft, this is crazy easy to fix, just allow people to auto upload the camera roll.
Ok, but lacks responsiveness
by r3dsky on 2019/06/18 08:52
I like the way the team behind Onedrive is responding to feedback and there’s definitely a lot of improvement over the years. I really want to love OneDrive with all my heart. I really do! The main reason why I still prefer a very well know competitor product, is the overall responsivness and usability of the app - even more so on desktop. In direct comparison, everything is much more sluggish on desktop, from app opening to sync etc. and sync conflicts happen more often - on Windows!! On a Mac it’s even worse. I use my cloud storage to sync documents on a variety of systems: iOS, MacOs, Windows. As an end user of cloud storage, it doesn’t matter if the iOS app works great, but there are usability issues on other OSes: a unified experience matters. At least make it the best possible experience on your own OS. Pretty please.
Helpful Storage
by JennieCake on 2020/07/02 00:40
Great storage. I can access all my files and references from my iPad. I love how the pictures are displayed and I can easily view each one with a quick look. I have a bunch of folders though. I wish there was a a way to tag a folder, hidden in a bunch of folders , as a shortcut. Especially since I use some of them a lot. And I have a bunch of files organized to see a certain category of notes and pictures. Then I have a even more specific category of things in those folders. I also can’t bring myself to delete the ones I don’t normally use, but may need in the future. It’d be more efficient if I could access my regularly used folders faster.

Syncs files but content missing

October 2021 Update
by sapphiresky83 on 2021/10/15 21:26
The app installs and seems to work okay, however, trying to access or pull or store files through the iPhone’s native Files app fails. OneDrive appears as “Read Only” and my QuickBooks app cannot retrieve and upload receipts from my OneNote account via the iPhone Files app. This used to work! And it worked for a long time. I think a recent update, post iOS 15 release, has broken everything with OneDrive working outside of the OneDrive app on an iPhone.
Corporate policies applied across personal accounts !!! Why?
by PATRIKCZE on 2021/10/15 17:04
I do not know what happened if that is fault of our corporate policy or Microsoft fail to implement MDM, or Apple fail to provide proper functionality in iOS 15 … but I do not understand why I’m blocked by our corporate policy everywhere means in all Microsoft applications. Whenever I would like to open document from my private Teams in word, excel, power point, I’m always failing with inaccessibility because for some reasons corporate policies are applied to my personal account. What the heck ! I can’t simple print nothing. How is that even possible. Aren’t all applications send boxes how Microsoft achieved this stupidity !? I don’t care who’s fault it is, just fix it asap! Totally useless app which leads me to use purely Apple products like Pages, Numbers, etc.
One Drive

Please fix this
by Ambrotvd on 2021/10/15 11:36
There should be an option to select multiple photos at once instead of selecting every single photo one by one which takes a lot of time and effort
Main Menu
by mdavisgolfnut on 2021/10/15 03:11
My biggest hang up is that the app constantly sends me back to the main root menu instead of the document I was reading/editing. It doesn’t matter if the app ran one deep or four deep in the background when using other apps. 90% of the time when I go back to the app it sends me back to the main menu and I find myself navigating all the way back and then scrolling several pages to where I left off. Already chatted with Microsoft and that was fruitless.
SOOOO Convenient!!
by sblaire08 on 2021/10/14 19:55
This app has helped me clean up the photos on my phone that I need to be able to access for my business but don’t want them clogging up my photos on my phone. OneDrive stores it all for me so I can download them to my phone as I need them now. LOVE LOVE IT!!
Send button not working
by MickeyC81 on 2021/10/14 17:19
After latest update of one drive or IPad/Iphone IOS, when she try to send a document from One drive to, for example, One Note the send icon button is not shown at the right upper corner. You can press the blank corner where Send should be and it will send the item.

Doesn’t play well with Files app (FIXED!)
by D from DC121 on 2021/10/13 20:25
UPDATE: they fixed the issue promptly and even sent me a message about it. Better customer service than I expected! ORIGINAL REVIEW: I rely on OneDrive folders all the time in my work. I also regularly use my iPad as a work device. Unfortunately, the Files app doesn’t work with OneDrive hardly at all on my device. I can read files fine, but whenever I try to copy something to OneDrive I get the error “could not communicate with a helper application.” No documentation on how to fix this. Please get it sorted out, Microsoft.
Automatic Uploads
by Magnum P90 on 2021/10/12 21:32
Biggest issue, I don’t need all my things taking up cloud storage. I can’t allow certain features without OneDrive trying to automatically store everything on here and it’s a hassle having to delete them over and over again.
Can’t Save/Move files to SharePoint document library

There needs to be a way to save to SharePoint as well as a way to move documents from your personal one drive to share point. Please update. Thank you.

App does not sync with my laptop

Responsive!
by djgeiger0620 on 2021/10/11 12:12
Microsoft is quick to resolve issues, and are listening for feedback to improve their apps in general. OneDrive works well and helps to keep our business files organized.
Great, but one problem
by thatguy Landon on 2021/10/10 20:20
Without it, I wouldn’t be able to make YouTube videos. Now today though when I would enter it would kick me out. So I deleted it, knowing if I redownloaded it would save all my stuff. But now it’s taking FOREVER to load.
Can’t disable “On this day” feature
by Bikrrr on 2021/10/09 13:40
There’s no way to disable the “On this day” feature in OneDrive for iOS like you can in OneDrive for Android. It just wastes screen real estate in the Photos tab, where my primary goal is to view my latest photos, not reminisce about the past.
Just crashes
by Kautexas on 2021/10/08 14:21
App crashes constantly. App updated, but I still can’t open it on iPhone 12 Pro It started crashing again. So I deleted, restarted my phone, and reinstalled. Still just crashed non stop. So, I did everything again, and I still can’t get it to open. What’s the deal MSFT?
Promising, but not there yet
by Rynnessa on 2021/10/08 14:13
Needs to be way better at understanding the difference between “photos”, “screenshots”, and “random image file that some app on my desktop pc saved into My Documents which auto backed up to OneDrive”. That latter category is not something I ever want to see featured in “memories from this day in prior years” for example. Or just when viewing my photos in general.
Can’t handle large files
by Unknown Appster on 2021/10/08 11:25
Useful tool, when it works correctly, but if you are trying to work with a large file, such as a complicated PowerPoint presentation, it might not sync correctly on certain devices such as the iPad. Up-to-date version on one device, older, out of date version on another device. Same presentation works perfectly off-line. At times, very slow to open files and even slower to save and close. If it opens at all! Many posts to community forum and emails back-and-forth with tech support resulted in no improvement. No phone support available. Only back-and-forth dozens of times over days and no fix yet. Frustrating. If it was reliable and worked correctly, it would be great.
I’m sold!

I’m not to computer or phone savvy when it comes to all of the gidgets of gadgets but I will tell you when my hard drive went out I cried and cried because I thought I had lost everything. Somehow this cloud saved every picture clear back to 2007! I’m sold, I am extremely thankful and I’ll give you five stars every day. Thank you!
5 stars
by bpmh203 on 2021/10/06 22:54
The only thing stopping me from throwing away my mobile devices and going to a landline are Microsoft’s software and the sanity it’s brings to everything. Usability is the lifeblood of software and hardware and at every moment of the last totally absurd years of my life, I have always thought of Microsoft as what keeps me going. Thank you to everyone who keeps me going
OneDrive app
by jpschwi on 2021/10/06 14:13
My app I downloaded looks different then the one in the App Store. It doesn’t have the camera and other options at the bottom of the screen. I use this for work to upload documents. I have to make a file then add the picture
Going from 30GB to 5GB
by faviles on 2021/10/06 03:13
I'm one of those loyal customers that Microsoft punished by lowering the storage capacity from 30GB to 5GB without a valid reason. This is ridiculous in modern times (2017+) so I’ll give you one star until my last breath. /Two years later (2019); It appears that Dark MODE is more important for Microsoft than a good amount of free storage for your customers. /Four years later (2021); Nothing new! //
Unreliable Lately

Not in a good state
by Anarcho-Engineer on 2021/10/05 16:28
Over the past year, I’ve become disappointed in this app. The biggest issue i experience is that files won’t update, meaning files that are supposed to be there don’t show up. No matter how much I swipe refresh, restart the app, sign out/sign in, uninstall/install, I just can’t get certain files to show up. If this app is supposed to give me easier file access, then this bug makes it unusable at best. My second issue is the private vault. Each time I want to use the vault I must set it up. So each time I must acknowledge what it is, 2FA, and setup FaceID. EACH TIME. No. Just No.
On this day photo feature broken
by Druskey55 on 2021/10/05 13:50
The “On This Day” photo feature used to show ALL photos from a specific date from previous years on one screen. For example, if you had 10 photos it showed 10 thumbnails for that year all at once so you could see them at a glance. Now it may only show part of them (sometimes just one) even if you have 10 from that date forcing you to click one photo and swipe through the other hidden photos one by one. I mainly use One Drive to back up photos, and loved this feature, so please fix this.
Love It

Can’t call to get help
by DweaverVT on 2021/10/04 20:07
Microsoft got rid of customer service. When you call it says that it has moved on line and the online stuff is terrible. They use to have good customer service now you are left to be frustrated.

If your employer prevents the app from sharing to other apps, forget using this for personal use. Very frustrating so I switched to iCloud!
Super Slow to Load and Constantly Crashes
by FitzRml on 2021/10/04 07:41
Can’t recommend OneDrive storage service because of how awful the OneDrive App is. It takes a super long time to load and is constantly crashing. You’d think it would have gone through more testing before releasing. Also, lacking some common features like searching for text within a text file. It’s great that it can show be the text file but searching within that file for text is a basic function that should be there in the app.
Love it!

Vault locking in app is annoying
by jdevans4agec on 2021/10/03 02:02
Recent update made the vault timeout on me several times. I was in the middle of uploading and/or renaming photos/scans, and they were lost even after unlocking the vault again. I haven’t found a setting in the app to change vault unlock period. I really like this app but it needs some work.
It’s OK
by Employee#427 on 2021/10/02 23:48
Biggest issue I have is with sharing. On iPhone the keyboard will disappear shortly after clicking on the field to enter the recipients email. On iPad I don’t have this problem but the app will crash after clicking on the email.

Nonsense Notifications are Annoying
by AntRubano on 2021/10/02 14:02
Microsoft isn’t an experience. I need Windows to launch apps and Onedrive to store files. Stop adding bloated nonsense. Getting a notification every day to look back at memories, among other things, is annoying. Why is all this nonsense on by default. Onedrive nor Microsoft is that important. Stay out of my notifications..
Probably the best cloud storage service available!
by kato_flex on 2021/10/02 10:41
I’ve tried all the cloud services out, everything from drive to Dropbox and Box. And over the years Onedrive has really formed into one of the better 3rd party cloud apps available.

Most basic tasks not working
by Apfelmaennchen on 2021/10/01 06:11
I have two Onedrives, one for personal and one for another purpose that needs to be jeo separate. I this app I can only access one or the other by having to sign out and back in every single time. Microsoft Office apps on the other hand can juggle my two OneDrives in parallel no problem - how is that possible that the dedicated app is still not able to do that..?? Also, I can go to Share > Copy Link, and for a moment I get a notification that says "Anyone with this link can edit this item" - why is the less safe option of letting others change my files the default..? It should be Read-Only by default, and controlling it should be possible the moment I share, not in a separate second step via Details. But even then, I cannot Read-Only share a file anyone who has the link - my most common scenario. I can only edit-share with everyone, and read-only can only be shared with specific people - how stupid a design is that!?! [Update Fall 2021 - all above described issues unchanged. Ridiculous shortcomings.]

Would be great if they’d add swiping to photos again
by RewritingDavid on 2021/09/28 00:17
I’ve used OneDrive for years now and had no issues. But they’ve removed the ability to swipe through photos and it makes the process of viewing/showing others multiple images clunky due to how you have to back out of each photo to the folder it’s contained in to view a new image. Not sure why that was done but it’s a pretty bad user experience.

Automatically shares and downloads…..
by Roth Family on 2021/09/27 21:36
After several months, my account decided to automatically download thousands of files and photos to laptop and iPad cause me to have to erase and reset both devices. Neither can handle the amount of storage that I have on OneDrive (that’s why I have OneDrive). VERY frustrating…….
Easier
by only Jesus rates a 5 star on 2021/09/27 21:24
Easier to use, more intuitive than DropBox. I transfer files from my PC to my phone or IPad. Just don’t forget to activate it on your PC. And if your Windows sometimes gets slow, especially on boot up, turn this app off. Could be the problem.

Make a suggestion or improvement
by 没用过随机给分 on 2021/09/25 10:24
Set up a button to rotate the video manually as it plays, rather than relying on the phone to rotate it automatically. Sometimes the phone can't rotate when the screen is locked to rotate, so you need to manually press the button to make it easier.

Where's the swiping??
by atenwalt on 2021/09/23 17:41

Ranks below all other cloud applications
by B-Rad2020 on 2021/09/21 12:37
Microsoft makes a ton of really great apps. Sadly, One Drive is not one of them. I’ve been using cloud storage services for 14 years (since Dropbox started) In that time, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by many newcomers to the market. I would recommend my top 3 cloud services to anyone. My mid tier cloud services are functional and have interesting things about them that keep me working with them. However, One Drive ranks dead last and I wouldn’t recommend it to my worst enemy. If you wanna save your company time, money, and headaches; then I suggest you scroll down and read a few of the reasons One Drive is so awful. 1. Box 2. Dropbox 3. Google Drive 4. PCloud 5. iCloud 6. All other cloud services 7. Microsoft’s One Drive So why is Microsoft One Drive so bad? Because it has never worked properly on any of the Macs at our creative agency, All the other cloud services get it right, but One Drive struggles. Below are just a few of the reasons One Drive is awful: - Hogs CPU It doesn’t run quietly in the background and will slow your machine to a crawl causing other apps to crash as your laptop fan works overtime to support One Drive. - It stops syncing without alerting you. So you’ll never know if your phone and laptop are AC try ally syncing files. - It struggles with names and file types - buggy and crashes all the time. - honestly I have to reinstall it every few weeks just so it will work again. - every time you relaunch the app, it has to rest c everything all over again.

Click the web link -> goes to app -> goes to web browser -> says, “why’d you not use our app?!” Also, if you select many files to download, many of them will fail, and then it’ll say “sorry, here’s the list, try again later” and reset your selection, so you’ll have to go over thousands of photos again. What a piece of garbage!

Worst app on my iPad!!
by Jerferd on 2021/09/10 17:44
This is literally the worst and most frustrating app I have ever used. It lacks the most basic, obvious functionality that every single Microsoft computer already has, like the ability to copy and duplicate files, view the entire file path in search results (currently only the destination file is shown, which is virtually useless), or globally sort folders for thumbnail/list view or sort order. You have to individually sort every single folder for both of these factors, and redo all of that sorting if you ever delete and redownload the app (which you will need to, since it’s frequently buggy). The search function works inconsistently, and often misses files that I know perfectly well exist, and this leaves me to go hunting for things manually a lot of the time. I recently had to use my computer to locate a file that I should have been able to find on my iPad, but which wasn’t coming up in the app at all. My MacBook found it instantly using the Finder, though, and showed me the entire file path details. I often have to use my laptop or other apps to locate files like this, but still cannot do it on my iPad, because OneDrive refuses to open the search function to third-party apps that work better, like Files or Documents. I have reported these problems to Microsoft countless times over the years, and am always glibly told to go and “vote” for what should be the most intrinsic of functions, and which literally EVERY SINGLE OTHER FILE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM ALREADY HAS. I have in fact voted, many times, but nothing meaningful has ever changed or improved. I’m still left struggling with these major deficiencies, which would be incredibly simple to implement, and it vastly affects my workflow and frustration level. It’s abundantly clear that they use this “voting” system to simply avoid having to make significant changes to the app. In recent years the only upgrades I’ve seen have been an entirely useless home page, and a “secure” folder that I didn’t need, since one would hope that all my folders are secure!! So today I have canceled my Microsoft 365 subscription, and am moving my files to iCloud, which should work seamlessly with my iPad, and is cheaper to boot. Goodbye, OneDrive. You had your chance.
Love OneDrive, loath the app
by YourLocalTherapist on 2021/09/10 15:12
OneDrive is consistently the most problematic app on my phone. Slow as molasses, constantly crashes, not very user friendly, never syncs my photos, and the worse part is if you have to change screens out of the app for even a split second the app will automatically refresh and kick you out of what you were doing. It is such a headache to have to click through dozens of folders to get back to what I was doing just because I exited the app to quickly answer a text. I tried to leave this as feedback, but the app literally crashed every time I clicked to report a problem. Do an update that actually fixes some of these problems for once, please. Update (10/2/20) most recent update still didn’t fix anything. Tried submitting feedback but of course it crashed before I could send it. Keeps showing all my folders are empty. Can’t access any of my files. This is a major problem. I rely on OneDrive guys. Fix it please. Update (9/10/21) still an absolute piece of garbage app. I love OneDrive the cloud but this app never ever improves. Such a joke. I know the five star rating is from fake reviews.
Unwanted photo backup
by Richard.E. on 2021/09/10 04:15
I saw a notification saying that I could speed up my photo upload. I didn’t know it decided to upload the photos I already backed up to icloud. Now I have thousands of photos that I had to delete one at a time to delete from OneDrive almost one at a time because neither the photo selector or recycle bin have a select all.

Eats available storage
by dll31p on 2021/09/07 19:25
App consumes half my iPad storage even though I have 0 offline files (OneDrive allows you to download some stuff so it’s always available). It seems to be storing them anyway, and there is no option to clear out its cache. The app is also poorly integrated with the Apple ecosystem. E.g., if you scribble a note on a PDF in “working memory” (right...) prepare to re-upload the entire file again. Each time you write something new...
Embarrassing app
by tsoglani on 2021/09/06 19:32
I used Dropbox, box, google drive, synology drive and opendrive. OneDrive is the worst of all. Continuously logging me out extremely slow, pathetic error logging, and never syncs (ios). It is always in “Setting things up” state. Why can’t they get this right?????? Let me know at YOUR convenience.
Stubborn Microsoft
by mattsgreat5 on 2021/09/06 13:00
Love Onedrive as a service but this app has a fundamental flaw that hasn’t been addressed despite reports of it coming in since 2016: no ability to change default folder view. You can change it on a per-folder basis but it always resorts to thumbnail view. Thumbnail view is useless to me. Such a simple thing to implement too.

Poor substitute for Dropbox
by mikkeljr on 2021/09/05 08:29
This app is inferior in so many ways I can’t even list them all. But most frustrating is that when I tried to submit feedback to Microsoft via the app it erroneously informed me that the app was not up-to-date, and therefore did not submit the feedback that I spent five minutes typing. The app was in fact up-to-date, so besides the bug that I was trying to report there’s another one in their reporting system!
Awesome alternative
by raemae2u on 2021/09/02 16:42
It’s a vital to have to a backup from my computer! When I am not able to send pdfs from my computer, I just pull up the app and send in my assignment! Love it!
Not syncing in real time anymore

Amazing Application
by elenagevene on 2020/10/06 02:59
I researched multiple applications to back up all my devices ie phones, lap tops, and desktops. I took the time to compare each detail between all the options available. Given the amount of storage needed and price I chose to go with OneDrive and it was the best decision. I was able to back up information on all my devices and coincidently a few weeks after my Mac book of 12+ years gave me the black screen of death. What would have been a devastating moment of photos and documents that would have been lost turned into a humorous moment knowing nothing was lost aside from the 12+ year old laptop. I was so grateful I had backed up everything to OneDrive because I didn’t loose anything nor did I have to go through the trouble of paying someone to retrieve the data I would have lost. It was all already saved to OneDrive which I can access from anywhere on any device. Do yourself a favor and bite the bullet and get OneDrive! You can thank me later.
The Best For Online Storage and Sync Files
by Kedna78 on 2019/09/18 17:12
I can’t praise enough OneDrive. I had been using it since the SkyDrive days. Those days were storage heaven. I was able to rack up to 50 gigabytes of free storage. Well, OneDrive came to life and changed things. Some improved and some got canned like the amount of free storage. That is the only reason it I take one star from it. The good stuff it’s what in my opinion, makes OneDrive the number one app for online storage. Easy to sync files across Windows PC and IOS mobile devices. The integration of OneDrive with Windows Personal files can be somehow problematic since by default makes OneDrive upload everything you put on those folders. If you don’t want every file on those folders getting uploaded and take precious space just change the settings on Windows to stop OneDrive to upload the content on those folders. I found less complicated to just create a new folder on the system Desktop and name it “My OneDrive” then create sub-folders for E-books, Pictures, spreadsheets and so on... then drop there everything I want to sync across mobile devices. That way I have more control over what goes into One Drive instead of letting Windows do it for me. Also makes me be more organized with the content I own.
Good but needs to be MUCH better
by JP Mears on 2020/04/23 22:28
It does what it needs to in terms of cloud storage on the iPad. It’s best if you have an office 365 subscription so that you get the 1TB of storage, which is great for me because it allows me to store all my files easily. It could be A LOT BETTER though. First, it does have files app integration which for some reason only allows you to copy files from the iPad to OneDrive, not to simply move them. Second, they say it has multi window support for iPadOS 13 but not really. Each time you try to add another window, you get an error message saying that you can only open a file in another window, not another file browser. Also you are very limited in terms of sort and view options, you can only view files in a list or as icons. When viewing photos and videos with the icon view, you can’t see the file name and can only do so by clicking the info button for each individual file. It would be much better if you had other view options like some sort of cover flow type view or something else. Also, the scan option is nice but it would be really nice if it had an option to scan book/textbook pages.
Saving to OneDrive is now a pain
by NicksOtherName on 2020/08/28 12:15
UPDATE: still don't have integration in Save to Files, but I'll give back a couple of stars because I can save to both OneDrive accounts Using the OneDrive option out of the Share menu. This method seems more reliable than Save to Files, so some improvement there and not looking back. The method to switch accounts is a little counter-intuitive, but it's definitely there - just took a minute for this impatient reviewer to find it. Still wish I could save directly to SharePoint - that would get the app to 5 stars. Both app and iOS updates recently installed. Had slightly flaky results from "Save to Files" function, but could manage last week to save to either Personal or Work OneDrive accounts. Now, not so much. No OneDrive entries in Save to Files. If I share and select OneDrive, oy the personal account is accessible. Please fix support for Save to Files so that I can reliably copy images, attachments, etc. to OneDrive, OneDrive for Business and connected SharePoint sites. This is basic expected functionality in a cloud storage access app.
Great App for Saving Everything!
by Reazorsharp on 2019/07/04 13:04
This works great for saving everything- documents, pictures, downloads, and videos. It can be set up to upload automatically as you take pictures or videos. It saves things in their own file folders by dates, making it easier to find what your looking for. It saves information about the pictures, videos, and files. I have a 1T so I have more than enough room for anything. You can delete items and if you accidentally delete something you can find it in the trash file & recover it if you need too. I’ve never had any problems with it. I can also access it from any device using the app or the website. This is a great thing to have. Never worry about loosing anything from a virus on computer/laptop/phone because this can be accessed in many ways.
Typical Microsoft Crudware treating people like kids
by jamesk479 on 2021/06/14 04:10
People use stuff like this for work, at least I do. So get rid of or let me have some basic options to get rid of distractions. No need for stupid recent documents. What I did last week is rarely relevant today. No need for stupid photo memories of work pics either. How about let me decide where u start the app at, preferably at some root folder with no irrelevant distractions. It is called having a clean interface. Ipad is obviously used on the go. If I am doing work on here in OneDrive it is probably a once a month emergency type thing on the go, and I doubt I am the only one. I dont need your stupid distractions that just slow things. Stop dumbing down things for amateurs and noobs. It only makes it more confusing for them in the long run especially once u change everything again which u will do too often once u realize how stupid it is. This is why far too many people are terrible at basic file management. I know where i keep my important files and current work. Why dont you? I cant even tell your app where. You do realize it is 2021 and we have things like AI, right???? But this is worse than 1980s software. Get with the 21st century!!!
Wonderful to use & frustrating to understand
by LeetahCammy on 2019/03/16 17:53
Once I started using OneDrive to access my files on multiple devices, I was very satisfied and happy. This has been extremely helpful for me, and for sharing files with others. My frustration is trying to make sense of using OneDrive. It is not very user friendly on instructions. I had to cut files from my primary folders on my computer and paste them in folders on my desktop (or anywhere else), because I could not get the system to only save the files I wanted. You’re supposed to be able to choose which files go to OneDrive, but I still can’t get the system to do that so things like pictures and PDFs, which take a lot of space, have been moved out of My Pictures and My Documents. If you can make sense of how that works, you’ll probably fall in love with this for being able to access files. If you’re concerned about losing files, you can save them directly to OneDrive, as compared to having it on your computer. Good luck and enjoy.
Good but frustrating
by prlaba on 2021/06/18 11:30
OneDrive is my go-to cloud storage system, allowing me to store all of my files online and share them easily among my various devices (PC, iPad and iPhone). My Office 365 subscription gives me 1 TB of storage, more than enough for my needs. The IOS OneDrive app does a good job displaying your files and folders and lets you easily navigate between them. It works especially well with the Office apps, auto-saving your files as you work with them. Two major complaints about the app: 1) If I navigate to a nested folder within my OneDrive folder, switch to a different app and then return to the OneDrive app, it often “resets” to its root folder, forcing me to re-navigate to where I was. This is even more frustrating if I’m viewing one of my files (e.g., a PDF file) within OneDrive. Upon return to OneDrive from another app, the file is closed and I’m back at the root folder, forcing me to reopen the file I was viewing. I have a feeling this is due to limited memory space, but just dumping me out of my current context seems a poor way of handing the memory restriction. 2) OneDrive is not well integrated with IOS or other apps. For example, if I want to save an online PDF file I find while using one of the browser apps (Safari, Chrome, etc.), there’s an option to save it to DropBox but not to OneDrive. I usually end up having to save the file to Dropbox, import it to the Adobe Reader app, save it to OneDrive from there, and delete the copy on Dropbox.
Not the best imo
by _kayysea on 2020/01/07 05:22
I mainly use this app for gaming clips that I record and need to share on to my social media. I’ve tried really hard to like this app but it only gives you 5gb for the free package and then if you want more gb’s you have to upgrade and start paying 6.99 or more (can’t remember how much the last package is) every month. Imo to me that’s not worth it b/c I only use this for gaming clips to save onto my phone like I said. Even though I do have the extra space in my OneDrive, my clips seem to NEVER pop up in my folders even when I’m constantly deleting and moving it back over again to see if it will appear. I just find it very frustrating to have to deal with that especially when I still have space and idk, the app just seems to process really slow most times. If I could find a better and easier app for something like this, I’d uninstall this one in a heartbeat. Business wise I can’t speak my opinion on it if you’re specifically using it for that. I’m assuming if you upgrade to the “higher” packages you may have a better experience, I have no idea but I personally don’t like OneDrive at all.
Beware
by DeTate on 2020/01/02 09:49
Your files will be moved. Most of the links any of your programs need will be lost. The 2 reasons I have seen: (1) when it moved a documents folder to online, it ran out of storage space. Only two of 5 subfolders were available online. Excel could not find the documents that were moved to a Temporary One Drive folder on my C:drive. Even as my computers Administrator, I was not allowed access to the documents! (2). Third party applications like Ultrafractal, Photofusion, Photoshop, Illustrator, ...etc. could not locate saved files or templates or albums! Trying to uninstall One Drive was a big mistake since they changed User permissions! The One Drive support team helped me recover my lost files and I can now recreate artwork, correct photographs, find formulas in my excel worksheets...etc. However, One Drive’s file relocations continue to haunt me as I discover other programs that are no longer linked to originating software. On a side note, now that France is taxing online service providers, maybe someone at Microsoft will see online service as the new source of income for local, state and federal that, no doubt, legislators will never give up trying to get their fair share of.
Great for groups working together
by SProwett on 2019/08/07 17:04
I actually moved from a Windows phone quite a few years ago and brought this with me. I and most if my family use it on our computers and phones so we can share important information and ideas about upcoming events! I also keep memory notes to myself in various sections which I can share or not as I choose. Great product. It’s gotten much top heavier over the years. It started as a very stramlined note taker that allowed one drive storage and sharing. Loved that! Not so sure I like all the enhancements. And the missing star is also because sometime recently, I assume in an update, or it may be linked to my change on my iPhone to larger type since I am sight impaired? It now doesn’t show a text cursor, and if you hit backspace delete the display jumps quickly to the top if the note and back down before letting you proceed. It’s dizzying and nauseating to say the least. A good product, but getting retired if I need to do much editing.
Overall good but...
by Keith in Tucson on 2021/01/27 11:46
As a user who uses Windows desktop computers and Microsoft office, but also has an iPad and an iPhone, this has been a godsend, however in the update process critical features frequently become broken. Password-protected Microsoft office files can not be opened on OneDrive in iOS, but can on Windows platforms. Unfortunately, when OneDrive is installed, it prohibits launching of a file via the browser based app A workaround to the problem of password-protected documents is using the iOS version of the Microsoft Office app on the iPhone, however iPad users cannot use it unless they have an active subscription to Office 365 because there is a screen size limit for the free version prohibiting use on the iPad. Hoping they fix the broken inability to decrypt/open password-protected file via the iOS OneDrive app. Has been broken for a while now 🙁 UPDATE January 27, 2021: since iOS was updated to version 14.4, this problem is resolved.
Power Users, this app isn’t for you.
by tonygaglio on 2020/04/06 00:28
For the last two years I have submitted feedback and notices to the OneDrive team, sent a UserVoice, and posted in the r/OneDrive reddit. All ignored. Camera upload is broken. It works until it doesn’t, gets stuck on “setting things up” and flat out stalls on most videos/images. When it works, it’s nice. But that’s rare. I hate to be critical of the app, but this is beyond ridiculous. Camera upload is a critical feature that is surprising they haven’t spent more addressing. I’ve experienced problems with camera upload on iPad 2, iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone 7 and iOS 11, iOS 12, and the iOS 13 beta. I’ve had problems over fiber 1000mps upload connection and 4G LTE. The competitors (AMZN and GOOG) apps work perfectly fine. Please Microsoft, fix this app. Good luck streaming videos from OneDrive with you have greater than 1 TB of filled stored, 40,000+ files. The app just won’t load. Unfortunately this is the case for my account. No videos load and the overall performance is sluggish under heavy load of files. It can’t handle fast searches when you have libraries of >1,000 small files.
Can’t use it to judge — stuck on advertisement!
by jcbroadbent_1961 on 2020/06/09 22:31
I’m trying not to give Microsoft OneDrive a bad review, but I can’t use it to know if it’s worthwhile. Logging on, then scrolling through the pages quickly brings me to an advertisement for Premium OneDrive services, including a 7 day free trial to Microsoft Office 365. There is a little X in the upper right corner to cluck on and close the advertisement, but it doesn’t function! I can’t go backwards and I can’t go forward — unless I want to read the Terms of Service or Sign up for a monthly subscription! Finally, I gave up trying to delete the page which was preventing me from moving forward and actually using the app. I signed up for the Premium Service making a mental note to cancel my subscription before my 7 day trial expired and they started debuting me for $6.99 every month. The next time I opened the app I was confronted with same same advertisement, even though I had already signed up for it. BOTTOM LINE: Attention Microsoft! Either fix your ad so I can click out of it, or delete it from the OneDrive app!!! This doesn’t help me want to use Microsoft products!!!
Accessibility
by Wuest2 on 2020/07/31 17:26
I like One Drive a lot. However, when it’s icon comes up as an option to send or save something into it, it does not provide me an option to create a new folder or to select the folder I would want to send or save my file in. Yes, I can do save it that way but I have to go to “Save to Files” first, then select it as an option - an additional 2 or 3 steps more. Also, if I create a new folder, I am unable to paste a copied set of text into it - I am only allowed to save a file or graphics into it. Apple’s iCloud storage allows me to do all that. Unless you upgrade to include those plus other features more, users like myself would be inclined to eventually move most of our storage to Apple’s iCloud - which is also cheaper than your monthly subscription. This is just a suggestion that you hopefully will take into consideration. I love your Office Suite - it’s the only one that keeps me using One Drive.
Needs more capabilities for multitasking (iPadOS 14)
by Ahmed Kh. Goran on 2020/10/14 08:20
My review is based on my usage and use cases, which is mostly using iPad as productivity and office machine, specifically the most two apps I am using are MS Outlook and MS OneDrive, aside from the many useful features the OneDrive has that makes my daily work more fun and easy, but it still need bug fixes and improvements to support the new iPadOS features! Like for instance if I need to save attachment from outlook (for example PDF file), I can’t simply drag from Outlook and drop it to OneDrive (although it works vice versa!), I have to select file by file save it through a long processes (Peres and hold the attached net, select the destination and click save) and this should repeat for every file I want to save, I can not select all files in specific email and save them in one processes, I have to do that one by one! Drag and drop feature could have solved all these challenge. Please update OneDrive to be compatible with new iPadOS 14 features.
Solid update with the recent version
by JB_Seattle on 2018/01/31 05:44
The most recent update is everything I hoped for. I stuck by OneDrive as they slowly made their way to full iOS support. The recent update takes it the rest of the way - it is outstanding. OneDrive for iOS is no longer a second class citizen. The OneDrive app is solid, with support for document previews, Live Photos, caching and better sorting. Drag and drop is also robust and well implemented. Don’t use it as much at the moment on my iPhone but found it pretty intuitive on the iPad. OneDrive is now also fully integrated in Files, if you prefer that. Surprisingly I’m now finding I prefer OneDrive app interface instead - better organization features than Files. Still, it’s nice to use files to throw apps between cloud services and local storage in a unified interface.
Most basic tasks not working
by Apfelmaennchen on 2021/10/01 06:11
I have two Onedrives, one for personal and one for another purpose that needs to be jeo separate. I this app I can only access one or the other by having to sign out and back in every single time. Microsoft Office apps on the other hand can juggle my two OneDrives in parallel no problem - how is that possible that the dedicated app is still not able to do that..?? Also, I can go to Share > Copy Link, and for a moment I get a notification that says "Anyone with this link can edit this item" - why is the less safe option of letting others change my files the default..? It should be Read-Only by default, and controlling it should be possible the moment I share, not in a separate second step via Details. But even then, I cannot Read-Only share a file anyone who has the link - my most common scenario. I can only edit-share with everyone, and read-only can only be shared with specific people - how stupid a design is that!?! [Update Fall 2021 - all above described issues unchanged. Ridiculous shortcomings.]
Good but More Potential to Fill Capability Gaps
by Craig's iTunes Account on 2021/01/21 12:26
A great start and is stable. A few items to note are that while it supports the Personal Vault storage, you cannot edit files stored there within their native apps like Excel etc. you have to move the files out of the vault to edit! It kind of defeats the purpose as it is then only useful to store legacy items vs. sensitive files you use routinely. If this can be enhanced to allow for editing of files in personal Vault it would be fantastic! The user interface is also a bit clunky. It does not allow you to default the view to more traditional list type views, instead it always opens to a screen with large folders that have the file names cut off. There is Lao no ability to sort by name, date etc. Small enhancements like this could make the app ideal but the Personal Vault item above is key, a. Great feature that is largely unusable for current files. Please consider this enhancement!
Good App/OneSimpleProblem
by Prince_The_OG on 2021/04/04 23:38
I gives this a 4 star because if one simple problem. I can’t save my videos. I can save my photos but not my videos. And I can’t edit my videos when I can’t save them. This app is really good for storage. You get extra free storage which can be pretty useful if you don’t have any storage on your pc or no more storage in your photos for phone. And when your saving something it downloads it in a instance. When your transferring data, it only takes a minute or 2. It’s basically icloud but better and you can create albums to organize your photos and videos so you don’t have e to go through them all. This app has saved me multiple times in terms of finding my card number when I needed it since I put everything into a album. You should download this app but please fix the not being able to save videos to your photos
Unreliable
by MDBoyz on 2019/03/31 16:51
If there’s anything you’d want most in a cloud storage/backup/sync service, it would be reliability. On that score, OneDrive fails in ways I’ve never experienced with Google Drive, Box or Dropbox (I use all 4). First, the iOS app constantly crashes. You open a directory to browse and it either crashes or fails to load. The bugs don’t stop there. Sort by date and for the most part it works, but there will be random files at the top (newest) that don’t belong, often more than a year old. Second, the app doesn’t sync in the background. You might think that you could use OneDrive instead of paying for iCloud to sync your photos. But with iCloud your photos always sync; no need to worry. With OneDrive you have to open the app to the photos tab before they sync. So all those great photos you took on vacation you thought were automatically syncing weren’t. Finally, the Windows PC version suffers from the same unreliability. Random files don’t sync, especially Microsoft Visio files. The app will pause itself without warning, something you’ll only find out days later when an important file is out of date. You’ll put the icon in your always-visible taskbar icons to make sure you’re warned of issues, and on the next upgrade it reverts to hiding in the extra icons pulldown. Most of the time OneDrive works. But when it doesn’t, it won’t be expected, it won’t warn you, and you’ll be as frustrated as I am.
Better Cloud Choice
by Merchantshipper on 2017/10/31 03:48
I use two cloud services. I use the Apple iCloud for work (200GB), and the Microsoft One Drive for personal (1TB). I tried both in order to compare them to see which is better, and I think MSOD is the better of the two. What I especially like is the ease of uploading folders; however, I am surprised you can’t upload folders using Microsoft Internet Explorer. Strangely enough, you must use chrome. The MSOD is better syncing capabilities. I especially like how the MSOD app can be protected With biometric password access. iCloud does not have that, so my files on the iCloud service are more vulnerable. One advantage of the iCloud service is that you can buy smaller memory like 200 GB for $2.99/m, whereas MS sells 1 TB for $69/y, which is high, but it comes with Office 365. Both services should offer 500GB.
Only Organizes New Uploads
by zhugedai12 on 2018/09/23 16:02
The September 23, 2018 update says it is now organizing my camera roll folder by year and month. This is a great idea. This would be a better idea if it also organized the zillions of photos and videos in my camera roll that are not included because they were uploaded before the update. So unless this feature is gonna big to be included then please include the option to disable automatically sorting new photos and videos into folders like the website version of OneDrive has allowed for a few weeks now. I don’t want half of my camera roll organized and he other half a bloody mess, it’s all or nothing. If that feature is not going to be included then please also rerun the option of scrolling the button on the right up and down and automatically listing which month and year the photos and videos are from so I can still find stuff.
Intuitive Digital Document Storage Drive
by stellar parallax on 2019/06/06 06:53
Very easy to learn, visually offers 3 different screen view of your files - my favorite is the one where you see folder icons (although I wonder if there a way to add color options for each folder, and then maybe digital sticky notes to mark important documents of different sizes and various color palettes) appeals to a different type of person, I love the file folder icon layout very grateful! Taught several realtor benefit of using OneDrive and they caught on quickly, so thank you very much. Also can you please add a system that alerts each agent of important deadlines? And finally could we make it so you can take certain files out of a folder and add the removed to broader group? Y’all have created wonderful software!
Corruption to promote Office
by The Way Climax on 2019/09/27 13:21
A while ago, OneDrive could open any Office documents directly from the app for the general purpose of viewing. During an update, they removed that feature and made you download Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to view it to promote these Office apps. This is seriously corrupt and I want OneDrive to be able to view documents without having to download other apps. I would still be fine with Office if they work nicely and smoothly. Office apps are buggy, glitchy and they have multiple errors that I hate, like automatically editing a Read Only word doc. I think Microsoft knows this and has the ability to fix it perfectly, but they are just toning down the app on iOS to make it feel worse than on Windows. Onedrive and the Office suite used to be pretty good and not buggy at all, but recent efforts have made them near unusable, with new interface and crappy scrolling. If Microsoft does not fix this ASAP, I will stop using Office and OneDrive on my iPhone and tell everyone of your dirty practices.
Useful but Why Does it Need Location Services Continuously
by KevinPurcell on 2019/11/30 12:08
This app is very useful for back up in the sinking between your iPhone and other devices. I have turned on photo upload in the background but it doesn’t really work very well unless you have location services turned on all the time which eats up battery life. There is no good reason to need location services all the time just to upload photos. Plus uploading of large videos often hangs or stalls because of this. Other than that it’s a useful app but they need to really fix this. UPDATE: I understand the background services that require you to turn on location ask the time is an iOS issue. But I often get one our more pictures in photos that just won’t upload. I have to restart my phone sometimes to get it to upload. Forcing the app closed or turning off connection doesn’t work.
App use to be better overall but there’s new changes that I don’t like
by Jlrodjr on 2021/02/19 05:05
Biggest issue now is that the tags feature is no longer available and any tags that were on the files you manually put and onedrive automatically put are gone so can’t even search through tags that already existed on the files before the change. Also a major change that make this once very good cloud app very convenient when searching other than tags was the ability to search by specific words through your document files and on photos and screen shots themselves which was a great feature but no longer works. I have been a 365 subscriber for several years but with those 2 features i just listed has made me start looking in to a different cloud service and app to store and backup my stuff. Hoping before I find a different cloud I like better that microsoft brings back those features so I won’t need to change to a different providers cloud that does have those features.
very disappointed Especially when working with pictures
by SamS_GTUSA on 2018/08/22 13:07
I have purchased 365 Licenses for me and my family With which Microsoft offers one terabyte a onedrive, and I primarily use one drive to back up our pictures. I don’t usually write reviews but because I got very annoyed with one drive and it’s slow performance and many errors while managing pictures, I got fed up with it. Yes we have lot of pictures and duplicates, so I have been trying to consolidate them, but every time I try to do so, I get frustrated by onedrive’s perforamce. I try to select multiple file and delete. Not only it take a long time to refresh, and no my download upload internet speed is not slow , I have highest offered by bright House fiber optics. Too many times onedrive will freeze, that is she using a desktop, other it shuts down if I am using the app on my IPhone. Bottom line, I am disappointed the most because my expectations of a paid for MICROSOFT product to be close to perfect and this is exactly the opposite.
Used to be good
by Vanbushi on 2017/12/27 09:16
I have been using Onedrive for a few months now (1TB). Everything used to work really nice. It was nice to have everything from my Xbox One, PC, and phone all synced up. FIXED -*Since I have upgraded my phone from an iPhone 6S to and iPhone X, I have been having crashing issues. I’ll start the app and it will load just fine. After a moment or two the app will freeze up and crash. I went to the MS troubleshooting page. It says to delete the app, restart the phone, and then redownload the app. I did all the steps. Still having the same issues. I’ll give the developer a week or so to come up with a solution, if there isn’t one in a timely manner, I will be canceling my subscription, and move onto another cloud service. If the app is fixed, I will review and edit my rating. Until then it’s a 1 Star. - FIXED Pros: Nice syncing for all of your devices. Pricing is not bad for the amount of storage you get. Cons: You can’t have more than one personal account synced. I’d like to be able to have my wife back up her phone to my storage, so that I wouldn’t need to purchase an entire cloud service for her. App is currently not usable, crashes upon start up.
After the biggest update, it doesn’t keep pictures or videos in order
by Toxy24 on 2018/09/20 15:25
I’m using a iPhone 6. I would always use this app to double backup my photos and other items I needed. Back then it use to be all in order. Didn’t need to scramble around to look for the picture or video. It would be in corespondent to the iPhones photo album. Now it’s just all over the place. I can have some pictures in order but some will be just not in the right spot. Making me scratch my head saying; did I really take it this date? Even as a OneDrive Premium customer, this has been going on for about 2-3 months now. I would hope that they bring this back. It works as it’s supposed to. Don’t get me wrong, but actually finding what I’m looking for at the time it’s supposed to be there. Not diving into a old box of photos figuring out when I took the picture. I miss that feature.
Happy until now
by Mingmong36 on 2020/02/26 18:58
Have had a great experience with OD when I got a windows phone 6 or 7 years ago. I’ve since moved to an iPhone and was not impressed by iCloud so I stuck with trusty OD until the latest update on the iOS app. Total brain fart by whoever launched this without Beta-Testing. I was in a DO NOT DISTURB meeting when my phone began sounding off in my pocket. Strange because I have notifications completely turned off on all apps. What could have happened you ask? Well this morning I allowed my phone to update the 7 updates that showed up on the App Store, not sure why my notifications would reset in an update but they clearly did and now I have an extremely upset client and a boss with a scowl that would sour milk at 50 paces. Bad form MS, bad form!
Double dipping on storage
by __Richi__ on 2018/05/30 17:15
I had downloaded offline content, about 7GB, not much. Turns out that after the last few updates, The OneDrive app doesn’t see the content and has to re-download the content again. This can be check my going to General-> iPhone/iPad Storage and looking for the OneDrive app. Clicking on each of the items previously downloaded brings up the circular bar that it’s downloading it. The purpose of offline content was so it could be available offline. This doesn’t help. At least if the info that was previously there is not going to be used, let the user know and wipe it out, that way we are aware and can download it in a place where WiFi is good, so when there’s the need to use it (in a Cell location where the signal is bad) at least we can have it available. Not sure if this is replacing the same content or just placing it as an addition download, in which case it’s double-dipping.
Great... but drives me nuts
by rcmustain on 2020/08/16 11:00
I love that OneDrive let’s me access all my files and I can essentially pass off or work on documents anywhere. This isn’t especially noteworthy in the age of Dropbox and GoogleDrive, but not having to drag and drop is nice. The trade off is that I always seem to have a little red notification circle or whatever it is on the app. This drives me absolutely crazy. I went so far as to open every document and move all my pictures out... still can’t make this stupid red circle with a “1” on it disappear from the app icon. I have opened every menu option in the app, uninstalled it, reinstalled it... that stupid little circle just comes back right away. If this doesn’t bother you, then the app is no worse than any other cloud app, just slightly better than Dropbox (which I barely used, so take that with a grain of salt) and GoogleDrive because all your stuff saves automatically and unlike GoogleDrive it doesn’t try to default to crap google productivity freeware. It is loads better than iCloud Drive because your files are viewable instantly. With iCloud Drive I would save a new file into the drive and it would often take hours before I could see it on my phone app unless I restarted my phone.
Improvements required
by Mikey T Ward on 2020/07/04 00:19
Love what you have done in the past with this app but needs more work. Needs to have a way to show which folders or files I am sharing and have it show with who and a way to adjust acess levels or remove them from the shared folders or files. Also need the opetion to share files and folders like what I would do on you website but needs to be done in the app as well so we can be more predictive and can do more on each devise. Also can you also list all storage upgrade options so that if I need to buy more storage I can see all options and not just the next step up from what I have. Also make a videos tab so I can have all folder files listed in its own category so it would be easer and faster to acess those files in the app and do this to the website as well. Also need to add support of adding more than 1 personal onedrive account to the app as some of us need to separate personal filEs from ones belonging to a boys scout troop.
If this isn’t hell, then I do not know what is.

I can count on one hand the number of times that this app has worked smoothly and without errors. It is so unfortunate that it somehow weaseled its way into being a mainstay at my academic institution. Googling issues I have with the app shows me that I am not the only one, but also provides me with no help. I find myself having to do the most bass-ackwards things to even bring a LOW level of functionality to this and I would throw the whole thing in the trash if I didn’t have to use it to share information with my peers. Honestly, it seems like I fix one thing, and then something else goes wrong, and after fixing the second problem the first problem starts again or there is a new problem. THROW THIS ENTIRE APP IN THE GARBAGE. Again, I can not stress how terrible the support and functionality are for this, to the extent that I’m taking time to write this extremely negative review instead of working on projects that I need to be completing.
Office-wide use! Love it! If only...
by U2Nighthawk on 2019/08/22 22:48
I’ve got 60 people in my office using this app to upload and track vehicle receipts with the camera phone taking out the Lens app step. It’s worked terrifically and made the whole process a LOT easier! Love that!!! but... I wish there was a way to change the default file save name for those images from “scan from...” to a a personalized name like the tag number for the vehicle so it wouldn’t have to be renamed each time after the fact. It would also be really helpful to be able to more easily save an image to some holding account where it would sit when there isn’t a cell tower available to upload to the OneDrive once we’re back in range of a cell tower! Those two improvements would make this app a complete rockstar for business use in my opinion!
Photos
by Jakyyxe on 2019/06/15 06:01
So if you basically store photos here, wait for a few months and I guarantee some of your photos have been deleted without them notifying you your items have been deleted. I don’t just delete pictures without storing the pictures here in OneDrive. I had a family member that passed recently and I had pictures of us stored in one drive and going back to it, I could not find my pictures. Not in the recycling or in other folders. NO WHERE. And my sister had the same issues. She had pictures of my baby sister when she was younger and we were trying to make a collage for her in school for her project and we could not find the pictures. I know they were on OneDrive because we would go back and relive the memory on here and now our images are gone and we have no way of getting them back. I’m very upset because the pictures mean something to my family and OneDrive just deletes it like nothing.
One Drive Not Ready for Prime Time
by Frustrated Customer 1000000000 on 2020/10/03 16:40
I use OneDrive at work , home for personal files and on my iPhone. Can’t really recommend it to people. My iphone OneDrive is constantly out of date showing me old files from weeks ago that were updated recently. At work, the sync feature constantly gets stuck on some file with no help to fix or resolve it. I also can’t trust OneDrive as it has lost, destroyed or caused important personnel files to disappear forever. No backups or way to restore. I pay for a second service to backup my home files encrypted to another storage location. OneDrive has some good features and is better than iCloud, which isn’t saying much. Not interested in Google Drive as they have their nose in too much of my business as it is. OneDrive could be good if programmers would look at it like a User, instead of trying to impress their bosses with useless or incomplete features and design.
Great app. But one thing with update.
by Lopezjy on 2018/02/19 17:10
Love this app. It is my favorite and I use almost all. The only thing with this new update is that it does not allow me to make minor changes to a file name. When I save my file and name them sometimes auto correct isn’t correct (as I do this through mobile dispositions mainly), and sometimes I don’t realize I may have missed a letter in the name. However, when I go and try to fix the name in my mobile devices I have to rewrite the entire name. I can’t just add or change where I need to. This is extremely annoying, before these updates I was able to make minor changes to tiles as necessary which makes it easier than having to completely type in an entire name again.
Too many steps, too fussy, needs streamlining
by OhioBellyBly on 2019/12/26 06:10
Too many steps, too fussy, needs streamlining. I’ve been using Ind Drive fir about two years and while the concept is convenient, the eco union of saving accessing and sharing files is far fussier than it should be, with too many steps. Once I’ve downloaded Office 365 to my hard drive, all files should automatically be saved to the drive without my having to sign on repeatedly and constantly take the extra step of uploading, particularly when I’m using Google Chrome. And please don’t tell me to use Explorer; it is ugly, awkward and dies not sync across media the way Choime does. All in all, this is a clunky and over-hyped app that need a lot of streamlining
Could be amazing, but it’s not
by ;0)DAC on 2021/03/24 16:41
After much deliberation I went with One Drive for file storage and sharing. It’s been a mixed bag, but mostly disappointing. I use my iPad Pro for business - taking client notes, sending clients notes/forms, storing client data, etc. It takes multiple attempts to open One Drive before I can access any data. I open One Drive, nothing appears, I wait. Then I close the app, wait, and try again. This time I can usually see some files, but am unable to open them. So, I close the app again, wait - again, then reopen. Sometimes on the third try it works, other times it takes 4 or more attempts. When I use One Drive on my MacBook it usually works fine. I was searching for a data solution that would allow me the option of working from any device, most often my iPad Pro, accessing data seamlessly and efficiently. That has not been my experience.
powerful in anyway in bring your customer back !
by Tomshz on 2019/05/23 04:47
I have hard times in using One Driver or Microsoft new products . Everyone older enough can relate to what i am referring . Bad customers services , with virus in scary and just name a few . But , Microsoft is willing to make changes and bring innovative products into the integration with Mobile devices , even I am so unwilling to use its products , it has powers to make me change my minds. Its Office mobile products like excel and one note app, Excel mobile App has more personalized features that make works enjoyable , more convenience, and colorful .Microsoft is still and continue to be powerful in bring more innovative products for the great good of humanity. I just wish Microsoft will make products in a way toward more simple , secure yet personalized products .
Great App but doesn’t work on the IPad Pro
by MarmieMcD on 2018/07/14 02:28
I have an Ipad Pro recently issued new from my employer. I have a Microsoft 365 account through my employer and I’ve had a personal account for years. I’ve used the one drive app as well for years. However now with the 365 account I started to use the One Note app for both personal and business use. I use it across my iPhone, my iPad and my PC. The features of the App work great on my phone and my PC and even my older iPad2 but not my new iPad Pro. I cannot insert a file from OneNote as it doesn’t even show up as a location when I browse?? I’ve used the CHAT HELP on line and they switched over to an expert but then got a message that the business hours were over and I had to call back during business hours but it was 4:30 EST? This would be a great App if it worked with the insert file feature so that I could make up notes and photos and whatever??
Behind the times. By a lot.
by cajunh2o on 2019/06/02 23:33
Absolutely loved one drive at first. Now? That I decided to try and cut costs I realized how much of a mistake it was. Over 2k pictures of my kids in OneDrive. Can’t move them. A big ward why don’t you have this is a select all feature. Every other major app has it and people in forums have been asking for it for over 3 years now. Still nothing. So spent over an hour swerving each picture individually to try to download back to phone. As soon as I hit download. App crashes. Start over. Suddenly getting errors that I can’t download certain files with no explanation and app crashes again. So now my pictures are being held hostage. I can’t cut the cost because of this. Just want my pictures moved. But Microsoft and their customer service has been zero help. If I could give less than one star I would. (No computer so that’s not an option. App should accommodate any features needed for users regardless of platform)
Cancel Not Responding During Delayed Video Upload Attempt
by Healthy BP on 2020/05/02 16:03
I have very good experience with using the app. Two days ago using my iPhone 6 I tried to upload a video that may have been too long but it’s not letting me cancel the request. Have not been able to upload pictures or videos to the one drive for two days now. May 2, 2020 - additional comments I have had to delete and reload the app several times in order to upload photos from my iPhone 6. Now it is getting to the point that doesn’t work. I use the cloud storage for other reasons but copying over the photos is an important one and I am disappointed it’s not working as well since the software update to Microsoft 365 as compared to how this functioned with the label of Office 365.
Love Love Love MSOD app ! ! !
by Jennie*o1 on 2018/10/14 18:02
What on earth would I possibly due without my MSOD app? I WOULD be lost! I use it all the time! I own my own business so when i am sending files it makes it easy to convert files to pdf, word, etc.. and is easy to open the document in another app (like PDFfiller if I want to fax the document or something like that.) convenient and easy to use. They offer a ton of support if you need it. I have only two (smallish) complaints: 1.) when i am working on a document that i had uploaded to MSOD, & if i exit and then come back to it later to continue editing, the FONT will change from what i previously picked before-to-HELVITICA font. Then, i have to RE-EDIT the formatting for ALL the different sections that i had put any text in my document. Which is really odd & very annoying! 2.) when i am working on my document it will often just close out & any editing i had done will NOT saved, so if i was writing something and it just closed out, then everything that i had just done, would be LOST! It could be something in my settings for issue #1? But idk. Also my app is up to date. I use a iPad 5th Gen.
Auto camera upload
by Waffles was taken on 2017/11/13 19:23
You apparently can not auto upload pics from the camera roll to onedrive for business. This is stupid. Part of what I do at work is take pictures of random stuff that I need keep in onedrive for Business for things like evidence, etc. Microsoft seems to want me to put these evidence pics into a personal onedrive account...I’d get fired for doing that. Microsoft apparently wants me to get fired for evidence chain of custody/ethics/etc violations. Microsoft, this is not incentive for people to use your products. Microsoft, why do you care if ppl upload their camera roll to onedrive for business? So, I’m supposed to get my boss to give me the approval to pay for Dropbox Business subs for my whole team because it would allow us to work on a platform that would not violate various company policies because it would be done at the department level. Microsoft, this is crazy easy to fix, just allow people to auto upload the camera roll.
Ok, but lacks responsiveness
by r3dsky on 2019/06/18 08:52
I like the way the team behind Onedrive is responding to feedback and there’s definitely a lot of improvement over the years. I really want to love OneDrive with all my heart. I really do! The main reason why I still prefer a very well know competitor product, is the overall responsivness and usability of the app - even more so on desktop. In direct comparison, everything is much more sluggish on desktop, from app opening to sync etc. and sync conflicts happen more often - on Windows!! On a Mac it’s even worse. I use my cloud storage to sync documents on a variety of systems: iOS, MacOs, Windows. As an end user of cloud storage, it doesn’t matter if the iOS app works great, but there are usability issues on other OSes: a unified experience matters. At least make it the best possible experience on your own OS. Pretty please.
Helpful Storage
by JennieCake on 2020/07/02 00:40
Great storage. I can access all my files and references from my iPad. I love how the pictures are displayed and I can easily view each one with a quick look. I have a bunch of folders though. I wish there was a a way to tag a folder, hidden in a bunch of folders , as a shortcut. Especially since I use some of them a lot. And I have a bunch of files organized to see a certain category of notes and pictures. Then I have a even more specific category of things in those folders. I also can’t bring myself to delete the ones I don’t normally use, but may need in the future. It’d be more efficient if I could access my regularly used folders faster.
