App constantly crashes and doesn’t store data properly
by sabrinaoneale on 2022/05/20 05:14
I have to delete the app and redownload at least once a month. The app will close suddenly when looking through files and keep doing that for an entire day. Now I can’t even get it to redownload. Other times, it will randomly take up half of my phone space as if it’s storing files directly on my phone instead of the cloud. The updates never fix anything, just more bugs.

by EarlierWorm on 2022/05/16 15:14
I routinely get 'your memories from this day' messages and when I click (usually a day later) none of the photos in the preview are there. It shows memories for the day you clicked the message not the day in the email and there is no way to change the date its showing photos for.

Buggy with no indication of what’s wrong
by DTORK on 2022/05/15 00:19
Was missing whole folders with dozens of files that were synced to the cloud for over a week. Decided to sign out and back in to “soft reset” it, but that only resulting in the app completely failing to open. Had to delete and reinstall, sign in, then my files finally showed up. What in the world? Also, wish I could globally set the view to list mode, but it insists that everything should default to thumbnails. Why? And in my “recent documents” is one I haven’t touched since 2013. That was 9 years ago. What kind of algorithm is responsible for that mess?
GREAT PRODUCT ALMOST PERFECT!

Terrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrible photo viewer
by User477484 on 2022/05/11 15:25
Do not use this app if you’re looking for cloud photo viewer. OneDrive’s photo viewer is by far the worst I have used - too many bugs, terrible video quality, inconvenient interface, not to mention lack of features. None of them are fixed in spite of multiple feedbacks over year. When my subscription is over, I’ll go back to iCloud, Amazon Photos, or Google Photos.

Photo albums
by Prb42 on 2022/05/03 15:31
Why does One Drive NOT copy complete albums of photos? All one drive does is copy all my individual photos from all my albums into one complete mess leaving me having to find and sort all my photos into their proper albums.

iOS App Does Not Sync
by Wasting My Thyme on 2022/05/01 15:10
I uploaded new PDFs and Excel sheets it OneDrive from my MacBook Pro over a day ago, and they still aren’t showing up on my iOS OneDrive app. I’ve tried signing out and signing back in, and I’ve tried deleting the app and starting all over (neither of which should be required to sync). Nothing works. Syncing is the basic advertised utility of this entire program. It shouldn’t be this difficult.

Try and use frequently for work to read research papers. Often freezes and cannot load document pages or annotate. Force quitting doesn’t help. Also not a connection issue. Freezes across networks and with documents made available for offline access too.

Can’t Rename Files when Saving PDF from iOS printing
by Howiebyu on 2022/04/23 22:57
I wish you’d enable ability to rename the file you’re printing to PDF and saving to OneDrive so I don’t have to save it. Then go back to OneDrive to change the name. It gets old after a while. Box and Google Drive all let you do it!!!

Mediocre performance - bad representation of MS functionality
by wer-ba on 2022/04/18 17:10
The interface is passable, the functionality is miserable, tedious and confusing. It is passable for texting the getting the job done at a slow pace. However the UI is tedious, confusing and laborious. I worked several years as a business analyst and manager in IT developing applicantions for top 500 clients. I would never have approved this. However, I need a tool, and this commodity package has to do for the foreseeable future.

Constantly asking me to access my photos so it can back them up. I dont want to back up my photos, i just want to upload what i selected. This is a colossal mess of an app. Why is this rated 5 stars?

by SmeeJ108 on 2022/04/09 16:14
Like Google Photos, OneDrive photos should be a standalone app. Also, if photos are deleted from OneDrive, they should be deleted from the phone and vice versa (also like Google Photos). Lastly, the interface is poor and albums, photo organization and loading speed are all lacking.

"Back Up Your Photos" Does NOT belong in Files View
by MusicMoviesApps on 2022/04/08 15:25
Not everyone want to backup photos to OneDrive. I'm perfectly happy backing up to iCloud. I use OneDrive for a different purpose and don't care to see that new option every time I open the app. DON'T FORCE FEATURE INTO PEOPLE, LOT THEM CHOOSE. Settings is a perfect place for the option.
0 Stars DO NOT DOWNLOAD.
by miss unsatisified on 2022/04/07 13:40
Apparently last year because I had too many files they froze my account and I only received emails that my account was about to be deleted. Never received a a phone call only emails. Customer service strictly through email has its major faults especially when it comes to never being able to get one’s important files and irreplaceable memories. If your going to pay for storage you should be at least able to speak to a human about your data being lost forever. I recommend a personal hard rice or Google drive!!
GREAT APP! Thank you!!!

Redundancy is not helpful
by Zozo_Bozo_99 on 2022/04/05 18:50
The are 3 different ways to reach 3 different groups of “shared” files. This is not helpful. I really don’t need so many options. Also, I have my iPhone set to a larger font. It appears that the designers of onedrive did not take varying font sizes into consideration, as my screen is a mess with parts of file names obstructed. I can’t wait for all y’all to get old and find yourselves struggling to use the systems and devices you’ve created.

by secret_shopr on 2022/04/04 01:44
[update apr 2022] still no progress to these issues. Please do your job and improve this app ipadOS version is not equal to the Android app. This one lacks a way to select which folders to choose for auto uploading. There is no way to manage files in the Cloud. There's no way to add tags to photos. Search is always incomplete as results don't always display known files, folders in the Cloud. Please go back to the drawing board...
Trash Bin
by amfsdbsnds on 2022/04/02 23:39
There should be an easier way delete photos. I have to do it twice. Delete from folder and delete from trash bin. When deleting from trash bin, there should be an option delete ALL from trash bin. No need to delete individually. This is the reason I gave a low review.

As of 4/1/22 I’ve been having problems and I see there’s a new update for the app on my iPad. Yikes. The icon won’t show up correctly in Files. The drive is now read only. A pop up shows up now in Home that does not respond to touch so I can’t get it to go away. Bad testing guys. I’ve restarted, deleted and reloaded the app, logged off and back on again. Nothing. And files have disappeared. What the heck?
Shouldn't be this difficult
by mdgcolorado on 2022/03/31 22:52

This App Is Great But
by Divided & Ruled on 2022/03/31 21:37
The movement of the app can be used a bit more swiftness too it. Also, when deleting items in that are in the trash, we should be able to view the items, such as what video or photo we want to delete. Currently, I can’t seem to be able to view what I want to delete, I have to restore it, view it, then delete it. I feel it is more time saving to be able to view and delete from the recycle bin in one location.

Great online storage
by J. X. J on 2022/03/29 21:16
I’ve been using OneDrive for a long time and everything has great so far. I use a windows laptop as my pc so the integration makes it really easy for me to transfer something from my iPad to my computer to work on. One thing I would suggest though is to allow us to choose photos from what folders show up in the photos tab. I keep a lot of diagrams and screenshots for my school work and I like to keep everything backed up in case I might need them, but since the photos tab just grabs every photo I have on OneDrive, they clog up my photos tab. It would be nice for me to be able to choose to only see photos from my phone when I go to the photos tab!

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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
Sharing functionality and storage is seamless but app is not mature enough
by Emmanuel Nùñez on 2022/01/14 19:19
Our digital health company just transitioned to OneDrive from Box for cloud storage. We spend a ton of time in the field, so having access to user guides, service docs on-the-go is critical. Amongst a vast library of languages and complex product lines, finding the right document at the right time can be difficult with the OneDrive app currently. The length of the title of documents displayed in the app is very short. It makes it impossible to differentiate different document by revision number and language (short of opening up multiple documents and waiting for them to download over a weak Guest hospital wifi connection). -Wish this app took after the Box app, that reveals longer titles when the iPhone is in landscape mode. -need a way to see the FULL title of a document -There also needs to be a way to view the Another critical feature missing is “View Containing Folder” of a document found using the search bar.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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 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
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Good but needs improvement
by dlqjcosp on 2021/12/13 02:12
This app has some nice points, such as being able to annotate pdfs and looking through files. However, there is a crucial error that is detrimental. Once an edit is made to a pdf, and I exit out of the pdf, the edit is saved automatically. This is bad because sometimes I don’t intend to make edits, and changes are accidental. Moreover, there is no undo action for accidentally moving annotations made through iBooks to a pdf, so that change will forever be saved and propagated to oneDrive. Thus, automatic saving must be disabled and there should be a prompt for saving when exiting a pdf. Another possible improvement is to have a sidebar tree viewer for the file system, and also the pdf annotation pen tool should be changed to be smoother like in the onenote tool. Otherwise, this app is great, but the automatic saving is really bad.
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.
Could be amazing, but it’s not

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.
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.
I lost features because of their update
by Leafjammer on 2020/10/10 02:22
I have used this for years and WAS happy. Recently they did an update and it removed my folder that allowed me to search my pictures by type and gps location. Now this app is just a folder of non organized or searchable images. This went from a great tool to a lame tool. I have sent several emails to Microsoft and the response was “we don’t know what happened” “we don’t know if it will be fixed”. If it isn’t restored I’m not going to renew my subscription. I purchased this because of the features, they shouldn’t take features away. When a company sells you a service and then doesn’t provide those services they are in breach of the purchase agreement.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Great online storage
by J. X. J on 2022/03/29 21:16
I’ve been using OneDrive for a long time and everything has great so far. I use a windows laptop as my pc so the integration makes it really easy for me to transfer something from my iPad to my computer to work on. One thing I would suggest though is to allow us to choose photos from what folders show up in the photos tab. I keep a lot of diagrams and screenshots for my school work and I like to keep everything backed up in case I might need them, but since the photos tab just grabs every photo I have on OneDrive, they clog up my photos tab. It would be nice for me to be able to choose to only see photos from my phone when I go to the photos tab!
Fine for photo and file storage, but uploading video clips is infernal
by Random NPC 143 on 2020/11/03 17:17
I have an iPhone XR with iOS 14. I have OneDrive for the specific purpose of being able to easily transfer files between my iPhone and my Lenovo PC. It works fine for photos, pdfs and word processor files, but when it comes to uploading even 5 minute recordings, it’s infernal. I’ve been waiting two days for a few short clips I made to upload, and since then it’s uploaded 1 of 18. I have not closed the app the entire time, except once to refresh it in an attempt to speed it up. By contrast, it took Google Drive less than 3 hours to upload them all. I’d prefer to use OneDrive over Google Drive, as it is easier to access on my PC, but the fact that uploading small 2-5 min recordings takes so long is absolutely aggravating.
OneDrive Workhorse!
by George Allin on 2022/01/25 14:46
My OneDrive is one of the most effective tools I use throughout the day across multiple devices… two iPads, my pc, multiple Droid phones and iPhones! I organize every file and photo I have on it. When it comes to presenting pics of outdoor kitchens, patios, pools, etc. to our prospective customers, it is seamless allowing me to easily glide through multiple pics with ease… My stone guy says I have more pics than Google… and yet finding them is so simple due to OneDrive’s organization allowing me to set up multiple folders and folders in folders, etc, etc, etc. I’m so thankful to Microsoft for providing this powerful business tool that compliments my Excel and Word products as well! George Allin
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 .
Missing Key Feature- Renaming from Share Sheet
by Keith701a on 2020/05/10 17:41
The app is great, and I’m a huge fan of a file vault system. The app is lacking a key feature that makes productive lacking: renaming from the share sheet. Oftentimes I will download bank or credit card statements from iOS, and then share (save) to one drive. As it stands, you cannot rename the file before it is saved, so websites and PDFs will often have generic names. To rename them, you must open the onedrive app, find the file, and rename it from there. This adds numerous steps to what should be a basic workflow (renaming files at save has existing since the beginning of GUI OS’s). Many have requested this on the onedrive user voice page, but it is nowhere near the 500 votes required for Microsoft to look at it. This should not need 500 votes: this is a basic feature.

App constantly crashes and doesn’t store data properly
by sabrinaoneale on 2022/05/20 05:14
I have to delete the app and redownload at least once a month. The app will close suddenly when looking through files and keep doing that for an entire day. Now I can’t even get it to redownload. Other times, it will randomly take up half of my phone space as if it’s storing files directly on my phone instead of the cloud. The updates never fix anything, just more bugs.

by DTORK on 2022/05/15 00:19
Was missing whole folders with dozens of files that were synced to the cloud for over a week. Decided to sign out and back in to “soft reset” it, but that only resulting in the app completely failing to open. Had to delete and reinstall, sign in, then my files finally showed up. What in the world? Also, wish I could globally set the view to list mode, but it insists that everything should default to thumbnails. Why? And in my “recent documents” is one I haven’t touched since 2013. That was 9 years ago. What kind of algorithm is responsible for that mess?

Terrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrible photo viewer
by User477484 on 2022/05/11 15:25
Do not use this app if you’re looking for cloud photo viewer. OneDrive’s photo viewer is by far the worst I have used - too many bugs, terrible video quality, inconvenient interface, not to mention lack of features. None of them are fixed in spite of multiple feedbacks over year. When my subscription is over, I’ll go back to iCloud, Amazon Photos, or Google Photos.

iOS App Does Not Sync
by Wasting My Thyme on 2022/05/01 15:10
I uploaded new PDFs and Excel sheets it OneDrive from my MacBook Pro over a day ago, and they still aren’t showing up on my iOS OneDrive app. I’ve tried signing out and signing back in, and I’ve tried deleting the app and starting all over (neither of which should be required to sync). Nothing works. Syncing is the basic advertised utility of this entire program. It shouldn’t be this difficult.

Try and use frequently for work to read research papers. Often freezes and cannot load document pages or annotate. Force quitting doesn’t help. Also not a connection issue. Freezes across networks and with documents made available for offline access too.
Notes?

Can’t Rename Files when Saving PDF from iOS printing
by Howiebyu on 2022/04/23 22:57
I wish you’d enable ability to rename the file you’re printing to PDF and saving to OneDrive so I don’t have to save it. Then go back to OneDrive to change the name. It gets old after a while. Box and Google Drive all let you do it!!!

Mediocre performance - bad representation of MS functionality
by wer-ba on 2022/04/18 17:10
The interface is passable, the functionality is miserable, tedious and confusing. It is passable for texting the getting the job done at a slow pace. However the UI is tedious, confusing and laborious. I worked several years as a business analyst and manager in IT developing applicantions for top 500 clients. I would never have approved this. However, I need a tool, and this commodity package has to do for the foreseeable future.

I try to upload photos… it prompts me twice, nothing is uploaded even though it says it did. There is no log to check what it uploaded and where. Constantly asking me to access my photos so it can back them up. I dont want to back up my photos, i just want to upload what i selected. This is a colossal mess of an app. Why is this rated 5 stars?

Problems with PDF files
by G2415 on 2022/04/13 13:06
OneDrive recently starting to fail opening PDF files that have numerous annotations. The last used page may show but other pages just show a blank page with a spinning circle. OneDrive has to be forced closed to continue. This happens on both iPad and iPhone. Update: PDF problems seem to be corrected in the latest OneDrive update.

OneDrive Photos Needs improvements
by SmeeJ108 on 2022/04/09 16:14
Like Google Photos, OneDrive photos should be a standalone app. Also, if photos are deleted from OneDrive, they should be deleted from the phone and vice versa (also like Google Photos). Lastly, the interface is poor and albums, photo organization and loading speed are all lacking.

"Back Up Your Photos" Does NOT belong in Files View
by MusicMoviesApps on 2022/04/08 15:25
Not everyone want to backup photos to OneDrive. I'm perfectly happy backing up to iCloud. I use OneDrive for a different purpose and don't care to see that new option every time I open the app. DON'T FORCE FEATURE INTO PEOPLE, LOT THEM CHOOSE. Settings is a perfect place for the option.

by miss unsatisified on 2022/04/07 13:40
Apparently last year because I had too many files they froze my account and I only received emails that my account was about to be deleted. Never received a a phone call only emails. Customer service strictly through email has its major faults especially when it comes to never being able to get one’s important files and irreplaceable memories. If your going to pay for storage you should be at least able to speak to a human about your data being lost forever. I recommend a personal hard rice or Google drive!!

Redundancy is not helpful

The are 3 different ways to reach 3 different groups of “shared” files. This is not helpful. I really don’t need so many options. Also, I have my iPhone set to a larger font. It appears that the designers of onedrive did not take varying font sizes into consideration, as my screen is a mess with parts of file names obstructed. I can’t wait for all y’all to get old and find yourselves struggling to use the systems and devices you’ve created.

Poor experience vs android version
by secret_shopr on 2022/04/04 01:44
[update apr 2022] still no progress to these issues. Please do your job and improve this app ipadOS version is not equal to the Android app. This one lacks a way to select which folders to choose for auto uploading. There is no way to manage files in the Cloud. There's no way to add tags to photos. Search is always incomplete as results don't always display known files, folders in the Cloud. Please go back to the drawing board...
Trash Bin
by amfsdbsnds on 2022/04/02 23:39
There should be an easier way delete photos. I have to do it twice. Delete from folder and delete from trash bin. When deleting from trash bin, there should be an option delete ALL from trash bin. No need to delete individually. This is the reason I gave a low review.

Where are my files?
by Jesswolfe50 on 2022/04/01 07:10
As of 4/1/22 I’ve been having problems and I see there’s a new update for the app on my iPad. Yikes. The icon won’t show up correctly in Files. The drive is now read only. A pop up shows up now in Home that does not respond to touch so I can’t get it to go away. Bad testing guys. I’ve restarted, deleted and reloaded the app, logged off and back on again. Nothing. And files have disappeared. What the heck?

This App Is Great But
by Divided & Ruled on 2022/03/31 21:37
The movement of the app can be used a bit more swiftness too it. Also, when deleting items in that are in the trash, we should be able to view the items, such as what video or photo we want to delete. Currently, I can’t seem to be able to view what I want to delete, I have to restore it, view it, then delete it. I feel it is more time saving to be able to view and delete from the recycle bin in one location.

Great online storage
by J. X. J on 2022/03/29 21:16
I’ve been using OneDrive for a long time and everything has great so far. I use a windows laptop as my pc so the integration makes it really easy for me to transfer something from my iPad to my computer to work on. One thing I would suggest though is to allow us to choose photos from what folders show up in the photos tab. I keep a lot of diagrams and screenshots for my school work and I like to keep everything backed up in case I might need them, but since the photos tab just grabs every photo I have on OneDrive, they clog up my photos tab. It would be nice for me to be able to choose to only see photos from my phone when I go to the photos tab!

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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
Sharing functionality and storage is seamless but app is not mature enough
by Emmanuel Nùñez on 2022/01/14 19:19
Our digital health company just transitioned to OneDrive from Box for cloud storage. We spend a ton of time in the field, so having access to user guides, service docs on-the-go is critical. Amongst a vast library of languages and complex product lines, finding the right document at the right time can be difficult with the OneDrive app currently. The length of the title of documents displayed in the app is very short. It makes it impossible to differentiate different document by revision number and language (short of opening up multiple documents and waiting for them to download over a weak Guest hospital wifi connection). -Wish this app took after the Box app, that reveals longer titles when the iPhone is in landscape mode. -need a way to see the FULL title of a document -There also needs to be a way to view the Another critical feature missing is “View Containing Folder” of a document found using the search bar.
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.
Power Users, this app isn’t for you.

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.

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.
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!
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 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
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Good but needs improvement
by dlqjcosp on 2021/12/13 02:12
This app has some nice points, such as being able to annotate pdfs and looking through files. However, there is a crucial error that is detrimental. Once an edit is made to a pdf, and I exit out of the pdf, the edit is saved automatically. This is bad because sometimes I don’t intend to make edits, and changes are accidental. Moreover, there is no undo action for accidentally moving annotations made through iBooks to a pdf, so that change will forever be saved and propagated to oneDrive. Thus, automatic saving must be disabled and there should be a prompt for saving when exiting a pdf. Another possible improvement is to have a sidebar tree viewer for the file system, and also the pdf annotation pen tool should be changed to be smoother like in the onenote tool. Otherwise, this app is great, but the automatic saving is really bad.
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.
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.
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.
I lost features because of their update
by Leafjammer on 2020/10/10 02:22
I have used this for years and WAS happy. Recently they did an update and it removed my folder that allowed me to search my pictures by type and gps location. Now this app is just a folder of non organized or searchable images. This went from a great tool to a lame tool. I have sent several emails to Microsoft and the response was “we don’t know what happened” “we don’t know if it will be fixed”. If it isn’t restored I’m not going to renew my subscription. I purchased this because of the features, they shouldn’t take features away. When a company sells you a service and then doesn’t provide those services they are in breach of the purchase agreement.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Great online storage
by J. X. J on 2022/03/29 21:16
I’ve been using OneDrive for a long time and everything has great so far. I use a windows laptop as my pc so the integration makes it really easy for me to transfer something from my iPad to my computer to work on. One thing I would suggest though is to allow us to choose photos from what folders show up in the photos tab. I keep a lot of diagrams and screenshots for my school work and I like to keep everything backed up in case I might need them, but since the photos tab just grabs every photo I have on OneDrive, they clog up my photos tab. It would be nice for me to be able to choose to only see photos from my phone when I go to the photos tab!
Fine for photo and file storage, but uploading video clips is infernal
by Random NPC 143 on 2020/11/03 17:17
I have an iPhone XR with iOS 14. I have OneDrive for the specific purpose of being able to easily transfer files between my iPhone and my Lenovo PC. It works fine for photos, pdfs and word processor files, but when it comes to uploading even 5 minute recordings, it’s infernal. I’ve been waiting two days for a few short clips I made to upload, and since then it’s uploaded 1 of 18. I have not closed the app the entire time, except once to refresh it in an attempt to speed it up. By contrast, it took Google Drive less than 3 hours to upload them all. I’d prefer to use OneDrive over Google Drive, as it is easier to access on my PC, but the fact that uploading small 2-5 min recordings takes so long is absolutely aggravating.
OneDrive Workhorse!
by George Allin on 2022/01/25 14:46
My OneDrive is one of the most effective tools I use throughout the day across multiple devices… two iPads, my pc, multiple Droid phones and iPhones! I organize every file and photo I have on it. When it comes to presenting pics of outdoor kitchens, patios, pools, etc. to our prospective customers, it is seamless allowing me to easily glide through multiple pics with ease… My stone guy says I have more pics than Google… and yet finding them is so simple due to OneDrive’s organization allowing me to set up multiple folders and folders in folders, etc, etc, etc. I’m so thankful to Microsoft for providing this powerful business tool that compliments my Excel and Word products as well! George Allin
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 .
Missing Key Feature- Renaming from Share Sheet
by Keith701a on 2020/05/10 17:41
The app is great, and I’m a huge fan of a file vault system. The app is lacking a key feature that makes productive lacking: renaming from the share sheet. Oftentimes I will download bank or credit card statements from iOS, and then share (save) to one drive. As it stands, you cannot rename the file before it is saved, so websites and PDFs will often have generic names. To rename them, you must open the onedrive app, find the file, and rename it from there. This adds numerous steps to what should be a basic workflow (renaming files at save has existing since the beginning of GUI OS’s). Many have requested this on the onedrive user voice page, but it is nowhere near the 500 votes required for Microsoft to look at it. This should not need 500 votes: this is a basic feature.
