Constantly reset or once app is opened

Constantly reset or once app is open it closes immediately? I’m applying the update hoping this helps before I give a fair rating
Great Cloud App!

I love Onedrive! This app never fails to synchronize between all my devices and now has live photos support which is pretty exciting.
Awesome 👏!

Easy to use
by boldqueenindy on 2021/01/22 03:09
When I wanted to download this app on my phone I was skeptical about it because I thought it won’t be useful but today I am glad I did. I can scan documents and submit my school assignment from it
OneDrive
by Mandi's Best on 2021/01/22 01:12
Absolutely looooove one drive!!! It’s so efficient to be able to work on the go and not be confined to a computer and makes it so easy to save all of my documents and send them as well! Looooove OneDrive!!! Would absolutely recommend this program to anyone who is very busy and needs to work while on the go and can’t be tied to a computer or laptop all the time!
Use it on a daily basis

Keeps getting worse
by E2tech on 2021/01/21 14:45
Each version keeps getting worse When I open a random file flashes the the app opens viewing. Once the app opens it doesn’t recognize the latest files on the cloud. Viewing excel files with tabs is broken. No way to clear recents history and recent history is not actually showing the correct recent history. Somehow the recent history is not working either.
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!
Reando’s Review

“OneDrive is absolutely wonderful, in that it allows me to store huge files from pics to documents in a private, safe and secured way because of encryption technology.
Sort out the duplicate folders issue
by StephenD~ on 2021/01/21 05:31
For months now the one drive for a business section of the app shows two of every folder. This only appears on the iPhone app, everywhere else - on my PC, on the website it is just fine. My personal account on the iPhone is just fine. But my business account shows two of every folder and every item in the folder.
The app is OK. Not great, but OK.
by FNAFboi on 2021/01/21 04:19
The main problem for me is the sync issues that occur every now and then. It might not seem like a big deal, but they can be very annoying and delay productivity.
Going from 30GB to 5GB
by faviles on 2021/01/21 01:47
I'm one of those loyal customers that Microsoft punished by lowering the storage capacity from 30GB to 5GB without a valid reason. This is ridiculous in modern times (2017+) so I’ll give you a one star rating until my last breath. Two years later (2019) It appears that Dark MODE is more important for Microsoft than a good amount of free storage for your customers. /

Worst technical support
by frustrated onderive on 2021/01/20 15:29
This is my second year into Onedrive. It had happened twice already that my files were been deleted or moved. The first time, technical support was efficient. Technician remotely came into my computer and restored everything. Second time was a nightmare. They took days to respond. My technician was a guy name Shalabh. He asked me same thing 3 times already in a period of weeks and still could not provide anything solid to solve my problem. There is no one higher that I can reach too. I have lots business files were missing or being placed somewhere else. Thankfully I did a back up in my hard drive a couple month again so I was able to retrieve some of my files back. But it has been a nightmare with Onedrive and I highly don’t recommend it.
Annoyed
by Missy Lit on 2021/01/20 14:07
I recently got a new phone and for some reason the app is trying to reupload all of my photos again. This is very frustrating for multiple reasons, but most importantly I haven’t been able to upload the recent photos I’ve taken due to the app trying to start from the beginning of my camera feed. I usually love this app and have been using it for years and would hate to cancel my subscription because of this. However, it’s frustrating that the app no longer works the same. It’s never done this in the past when I changed phones so I’m confused as to what’s different now.

How do you delete multiple photos?
Can’t share photos easily
by waxoid on 2021/01/18 19:10
If photo storage is a goal, can’t really recommend because you can’t copy photos to share out to message threads or social media. It creates a link to OneDrive instead, presumably for engagement and trying to sell subscriptions to your contacts. I literally end up making screenshots to share photos.
F-ing Garbage
by MarcBerm on 2021/01/18 15:19
If I didn’t have to delete and reinstall the app every time I want it to sync with the cloud it might actually be useful.
No copy function what a joke
by Rnph on 2021/01/17 23:56
It’s amazing that Microsoft almost forces people into using OneDrive and then doesn’t provide an actual copy function forcing users of iPads to use a PC to update or transfer multiple files. Microsoft monopolistic behavior never ends....

Three different OneDrive
by jimjoe dandy on 2021/01/17 05:11
Spread out over three devices, no contentiousness. Worst of all, iPod with the iMovie app can’t upload to my other social media. My laptop has all my photos named, other devices don’t recognize the name, put up the number.
Suuuuucks!
by jejaconu on 2021/01/16 02:09
The files rarely transfer from device to device if they aren’t apple to apple or windows to windows. This can’t be the final answer.
Passwords
by noimejico on 2021/01/15 19:47
Have to add new password every time I use it almost. Google and Apple don’t remember password so I don’t use it much. Try to use same password won’t let you do it so ok if you don’t mind changing password often otherwise don’t use it.

App crashing
by IdahoLauraLou on 2021/01/11 01:30
Any idea why the app crashes and closes multiple times while trying to back up my photos? Since the Live backup was added to re upload the pictures to capture the “Live” part of the picture the number of photos to complete is stuck. I feel like every time the app crashes and I have to open it again it has to start over, and will never finish.

Why is it so hard to organize files and folders?
by torrie62 on 2021/01/07 22:22
I waste so much time trying to save and find docs and Exl and pretty much everything because I can’t an easy way to view drives and folders shared, in cloud and on device from the top down, or the bottom up. Add the frustration of trying to move and store docs created with competitive vendors software (a practical necessity since everyone uses something different these days) collaboration is a mess. Everything defaults to the source google, MS, icloud, Adobe cloud backup. Icloud used be convenient. But now it’s all a mess. I’m ready to buy a hard drive and give up on cloud storage.
Lol
by tttmo on 2021/01/07 19:16

Amazing app
Full of bugs on the iPad
by Jerjosjud on 2021/01/06 07:26
Used to work quite well, but I guess there have been too many improvements. About three months ago, all Office products started telling me that my saved documents couldn’t be found because the folder had been removed from the server, even though I could still access them in OneDrive. As inconvenient as that was, I could still open the files in OneDrive and then open them in the appropriate program. But now I have to sign in every time I open OneDrive, AND I also frequently get error messages that a document can’t be opened, no explanation given. At that point, I have to go to my desktop to retrieve my documents. I guess Microsoft decided to make their platforms incompatible with Apple devices again. Too bad. It makes my subscription worthless.

Poor quality photo transfer
by PvZ Addict - Seriously on 2021/01/05 16:12
I downloaded this OneDrive app to my iPhone. Any photo I take on my phone will transfer to my computer using the app, but is seriously degraded in quality. Interestingly enough, photos that I download from social media transfer just fine with no reduction in quality. I suppose I could add the extra step of uploading every single photo I take to social media, saving it, then transferring it via OneDrive. OR you guys can, you know, fix the bug.
Great app
by SMTUSMC on 2021/01/05 12:26
I give app 4 stars because I love that it saves all my photos from my phone and my wife’s plus any files I may need to save. But I wish I it could save the Live Photo’s from the new iPhones
Falls Short - Missing basic features
by GeorgeReview on 2021/01/05 04:11
Background camera upload reliability - Dicey Doesn't Support IOS Live Photos - Work account doesn’t work Camera Uplload : forces a year incongruent with personal Offline files in non standard format so iOS and Android file viewer can't browse or easily copy them. Can't share the actual file without downloading it to the local device. only the link is provided immediately. Need to be able to just do a quick copy and paste. Sharing continuous / everybody doesn’t work cleanly- STILL, get permission errors.
Solid app
by Arclone on 2021/01/05 03:19
Office 365 user here so I must admit the terabyte of storage gives me some bias. Solid app, navigation is good. Would have given 5 stars except for a few things I'd like to see improved upon: some picture formats not native to your camera will not auto backup- such as those saved by Snapseed. Others such as larger photos taken on a real camera and uploaded from pc, blank placeholder thumbnail and can't view the image. Support for Live Photos would also be nice. Edit: Live Photo support was added - way to go guys! Now if we just had thumbnail support for some of the large DSLR camera image formats...
Finally added “Live Photos”
by martinaire on 2021/01/05 02:58
Update: They added “Live Photos”. Can’t complain now. OneDrive still doesn't upload "Live Photos". Google Photos has had this capability for months. Other than that, the app is great.

Overall good but...
by Keith in Tucson on 2021/01/03 23:51
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 🙁
Please allow more characters and syncing options
by skerfy on 2021/01/03 23:15
Would love the ability for more characters to be allowed in filenames (like ':'). Also, it would be nice if you could not sync a local folder to OneDrive.

Unreliable and slow picture syncing
by Hawaii listener on 2021/01/02 13:00
I have to restart my iPhone for one drive to talk to my one drive account. Also, picture syncing takes hours. Word documents and PDFs sync almost instantly. But my pictures are only in my phone until I can sync it on my computer. This unreliable aspect affects my ability to do my inspection job. I would choose an alternative or transfer pictures another way.

Love the storage
by Writer312312 on 2021/01/02 00:29
This is the only storage app where I can truly offload my pics and videos. Both google photos + iCloud delete the images if you delete them off your phone, so it’s more truly storing everything ! I’ve tried lighting adapters to SIM cards but they get too hot if they’re really cheap. In transferring thousands of photos. And one drive is the only app that lets me actually delete them from my phone AND stores them to look at later. It’s the perfect way to free up space on my phone. I’m a photo hoarder and filled up my new phone more than half way ;^; I love this app so much. Easy to use across all platforms (phone and laptop)
Reliable cloud service
by Jim Grue on 2021/01/01 06:01
Onedrive makes it easy to access your files and it has been a lifesaver.
Good but need improvements, not competing Dropbox
by Rob Hoods on 2020/12/30 17:00
1- OneDrive need to maintain view (list or grid) and sorting options. I have to constantly change back to list view and sorting by newest. Please fix this so I don’t have to change every single time. 2-Recent should include Folders, not just Files 3-Every single file should have the option to open its folder instead of searching over again. I just go straight to a specific folder from a drop down menu of a file. 4-Slow to sync
Unreliable syncing
by yakyakgo on 2020/12/30 00:17
My one drive would not back up my files and photos consistently and I finally figured out why. One drive has to be purposefully opened to start syncing and then your screen cannot go off or even the prescreen light dim. Once that occurs syncing will stop. You will need to go back into one note for it to start syncing again. Back in 1995 I could at least schedule my comp to backup overnight. Now I have to remember to open one note every day and make sure I’m on my phone long enough to ensure I don’t lose any documents....absolutely ridiculous. Microsoft programmers need to be paired with someone from the business side so they can better understand their customer and get out of their tech team silos.

iOS and Mac users watch out
by vickM4sv on 2020/12/28 13:50
I bought one year subscription with the hope I can backup my iPhone photos and content from MacBook. Cons - can’t handle 5k photos back from an iPhone. Sync is the worst among all storage services. Nothing works including reinstalling up. In last 24hrs hrs barely backed up few photos. - I tried my existing Google Drive and Dropbox which work flawlessly - MacBook user had no meaningful one way backup where you wanna backup your files to OneDrive. On Mac it only allows you to sync one drive files to Mac which will not backup your Mac. So it’s totally useless Spent $69.99 for this terrible experience during holiday. C’mon Microsoft you can do better than this.

Its great app, but with a BIG PROBLEM!
by Jahan M on 2020/12/26 08:50
I will get to the problem, one drive doesn’t update files and pics in background, IT DOESN’T! Its been more than 2 years I have been using it, same consistent issue. So every time I have to open the app leave it on and thats how it updates everything, otherwise the app is great, but thats a very crucial functional FAILURE for a cloud storage app, I don’t know how so many people didn’t notice this and gave 5 stars, confusing! I am a fan of MS products BUT this one drive !!!

by MEH1 on 2020/12/21 14:11
The fact that you have to keep the app open and turn off photo optimization in order to auto upload to one drive makes the app somewhat useless to me. I will just have to use iCloud Drive to store all my photos. BIG let down.

It would be marvelous if the OneDrive app had the ability to hide images that are not in your photos folder. When browsing your gallery, you will see cover art from albums, and all sorts of other nonsense intermixed with your personal photos. The web application has this ability and it would be nice to see it implemented in the app.

Very unstable
by tigerJohnny123 on 2020/12/19 23:16
Terribly unstable. Let me list the shortcomings: Can’t download files for offline use. Says “There was an issue affecting the download of…” or something along that line. Open in another app rarely if ever works. The popup would appear, you tap on the app, and it wouldn’t do anything at all or would hang for 5-10 minutes on large files Common filetypes, like mkv, is still not supported after being requested by users YEARS ago. General instability and UI bugs/missing features are common. For instance, where is the select all or select multiple files/folders option? It looks like you have to awkwardly tap & hold the folder/file, but that rarely works. Sometimes files aren’t completely downloaded/uploaded, Trying to open/download those files would mean working with a corrupted file, but there is no indications of it on the app. There should be incomplete upload/download indication. I just signed up for 1TB subscription to OneDrive and so far I’m HIGHLY disappointed. Expected a lot better software quality from Microsoft. May be looking at trying out Google One next if these issues aren’t fixed soon.

Slow video uploads

Works great, however all videos upload slowly regardless of upload speed or mobile/WiFi network.
Camera upload

I turned on camera upload, but nothing is happening. Paying for 100GB space plan, iPhone 7.
No Favorites
by MMan03 on 2020/12/18 16:47
This is the only storage app that does not support the ability to favorite files and folders for quick access. I pay a monthly subscription and there are free apps that had this feature for years.
Latest Version Killed all my Offline Files
by GaryMilne on 2020/12/18 16:42
I like OneDrive and have used it for quite some time. But this latest upgrade killed all of the Offline files on my iPad. Meaning I had to once again sync over a gigabyte of files to my iPad before it was useful again. Getting a big Fail for the last upgrade.
Amazing Application
by elenagevene on 2020/10/06 02:59
I researched multiple applications to back up all my devices ie phones, lap tops, and desktops. I took the time to compare each detail between all the options available. Given the amount of storage needed and price I chose to go with OneDrive and it was the best decision. I was able to back up information on all my devices and coincidently a few weeks after my Mac book of 12+ years gave me the black screen of death. What would have been a devastating moment of photos and documents that would have been lost turned into a humorous moment knowing nothing was lost aside from the 12+ year old laptop. I was so grateful I had backed up everything to OneDrive because I didn’t loose anything nor did I have to go through the trouble of paying someone to retrieve the data I would have lost. It was all already saved to OneDrive which I can access from anywhere on any device. Do yourself a favor and bite the bullet and get OneDrive! You can thank me later.
The Best For Online Storage and Sync Files
by Kedna78 on 2019/09/18 17:12
I can’t praise enough OneDrive. I had been using it since the SkyDrive days. Those days were storage heaven. I was able to rack up to 50 gigabytes of free storage. Well, OneDrive came to life and changed things. Some improved and some got canned like the amount of free storage. That is the only reason it I take one star from it. The good stuff it’s what in my opinion, makes OneDrive the number one app for online storage. Easy to sync files across Windows PC and IOS mobile devices. The integration of OneDrive with Windows Personal files can be somehow problematic since by default makes OneDrive upload everything you put on those folders. If you don’t want every file on those folders getting uploaded and take precious space just change the settings on Windows to stop OneDrive to upload the content on those folders. I found less complicated to just create a new folder on the system Desktop and name it “My OneDrive” then create sub-folders for E-books, Pictures, spreadsheets and so on... then drop there everything I want to sync across mobile devices. That way I have more control over what goes into One Drive instead of letting Windows do it for me. Also makes me be more organized with the content I own.
Good but needs to be MUCH better
by JP Mears on 2020/04/23 22:28
It does what it needs to in terms of cloud storage on the iPad. It’s best if you have an office 365 subscription so that you get the 1TB of storage, which is great for me because it allows me to store all my files easily. It could be A LOT BETTER though. First, it does have files app integration which for some reason only allows you to copy files from the iPad to OneDrive, not to simply move them. Second, they say it has multi window support for iPadOS 13 but not really. Each time you try to add another window, you get an error message saying that you can only open a file in another window, not another file browser. Also you are very limited in terms of sort and view options, you can only view files in a list or as icons. When viewing photos and videos with the icon view, you can’t see the file name and can only do so by clicking the info button for each individual file. It would be much better if you had other view options like some sort of cover flow type view or something else. Also, the scan option is nice but it would be really nice if it had an option to scan book/textbook pages.
Saving to OneDrive is now a pain
by NicksOtherName on 2020/08/28 12:15
UPDATE: still don't have integration in Save to Files, but I'll give back a couple of stars because I can save to both OneDrive accounts Using the OneDrive option out of the Share menu. This method seems more reliable than Save to Files, so some improvement there and not looking back. The method to switch accounts is a little counter-intuitive, but it's definitely there - just took a minute for this impatient reviewer to find it. Still wish I could save directly to SharePoint - that would get the app to 5 stars. Both app and iOS updates recently installed. Had slightly flaky results from "Save to Files" function, but could manage last week to save to either Personal or Work OneDrive accounts. Now, not so much. No OneDrive entries in Save to Files. If I share and select OneDrive, oy the personal account is accessible. Please fix support for Save to Files so that I can reliably copy images, attachments, etc. to OneDrive, OneDrive for Business and connected SharePoint sites. This is basic expected functionality in a cloud storage access app.
Great App for Saving Everything!
by Reazorsharp on 2019/07/04 13:04
This works great for saving everything- documents, pictures, downloads, and videos. It can be set up to upload automatically as you take pictures or videos. It saves things in their own file folders by dates, making it easier to find what your looking for. It saves information about the pictures, videos, and files. I have a 1T so I have more than enough room for anything. You can delete items and if you accidentally delete something you can find it in the trash file & recover it if you need too. I’ve never had any problems with it. I can also access it from any device using the app or the website. This is a great thing to have. Never worry about loosing anything from a virus on computer/laptop/phone because this can be accessed in many ways.
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.
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.
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.
Power Users, this app isn’t for you.
by tonygaglio on 2020/04/06 00:28
For the last two years I have submitted feedback and notices to the OneDrive team, sent a UserVoice, and posted in the r/OneDrive reddit. All ignored. Camera upload is broken. It works until it doesn’t, gets stuck on “setting things up” and flat out stalls on most videos/images. When it works, it’s nice. But that’s rare. I hate to be critical of the app, but this is beyond ridiculous. Camera upload is a critical feature that is surprising they haven’t spent more addressing. I’ve experienced problems with camera upload on iPad 2, iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone 7 and iOS 11, iOS 12, and the iOS 13 beta. I’ve had problems over fiber 1000mps upload connection and 4G LTE. The competitors (AMZN and GOOG) apps work perfectly fine. Please Microsoft, fix this app. Good luck streaming videos from OneDrive with you have greater than 1 TB of filled stored, 40,000+ files. The app just won’t load. Unfortunately this is the case for my account. No videos load and the overall performance is sluggish under heavy load of files. It can’t handle fast searches when you have libraries of >1,000 small files.
Can’t use it to judge — stuck on advertisement!
by jcbroadbent_1961 on 2020/06/09 22:31
I’m trying not to give Microsoft OneDrive a bad review, but I can’t use it to know if it’s worthwhile. Logging on, then scrolling through the pages quickly brings me to an advertisement for Premium OneDrive services, including a 7 day free trial to Microsoft Office 365. There is a little X in the upper right corner to cluck on and close the advertisement, but it doesn’t function! I can’t go backwards and I can’t go forward — unless I want to read the Terms of Service or Sign up for a monthly subscription! Finally, I gave up trying to delete the page which was preventing me from moving forward and actually using the app. I signed up for the Premium Service making a mental note to cancel my subscription before my 7 day trial expired and they started debuting me for $6.99 every month. The next time I opened the app I was confronted with same same advertisement, even though I had already signed up for it. BOTTOM LINE: Attention Microsoft! Either fix your ad so I can click out of it, or delete it from the OneDrive app!!! This doesn’t help me want to use Microsoft products!!!
Accessibility
by Wuest2 on 2020/07/31 17:26
I like One Drive a lot. However, when it’s icon comes up as an option to send or save something into it, it does not provide me an option to create a new folder or to select the folder I would want to send or save my file in. Yes, I can do save it that way but I have to go to “Save to Files” first, then select it as an option - an additional 2 or 3 steps more. Also, if I create a new folder, I am unable to paste a copied set of text into it - I am only allowed to save a file or graphics into it. Apple’s iCloud storage allows me to do all that. Unless you upgrade to include those plus other features more, users like myself would be inclined to eventually move most of our storage to Apple’s iCloud - which is also cheaper than your monthly subscription. This is just a suggestion that you hopefully will take into consideration. I love your Office Suite - it’s the only one that keeps me using One Drive.
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.
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.
Unreliable
by MDBoyz on 2019/03/31 16:51
If there’s anything you’d want most in a cloud storage/backup/sync service, it would be reliability. On that score, OneDrive fails in ways I’ve never experienced with Google Drive, Box or Dropbox (I use all 4). First, the iOS app constantly crashes. You open a directory to browse and it either crashes or fails to load. The bugs don’t stop there. Sort by date and for the most part it works, but there will be random files at the top (newest) that don’t belong, often more than a year old. Second, the app doesn’t sync in the background. You might think that you could use OneDrive instead of paying for iCloud to sync your photos. But with iCloud your photos always sync; no need to worry. With OneDrive you have to open the app to the photos tab before they sync. So all those great photos you took on vacation you thought were automatically syncing weren’t. Finally, the Windows PC version suffers from the same unreliability. Random files don’t sync, especially Microsoft Visio files. The app will pause itself without warning, something you’ll only find out days later when an important file is out of date. You’ll put the icon in your always-visible taskbar icons to make sure you’re warned of issues, and on the next upgrade it reverts to hiding in the extra icons pulldown. Most of the time OneDrive works. But when it doesn’t, it won’t be expected, it won’t warn you, and you’ll be as frustrated as I am.
Better Cloud Choice
by Merchantshipper on 2017/10/31 03:48
I use two cloud services. I use the Apple iCloud for work (200GB), and the Microsoft One Drive for personal (1TB). I tried both in order to compare them to see which is better, and I think MSOD is the better of the two. What I especially like is the ease of uploading folders; however, I am surprised you can’t upload folders using Microsoft Internet Explorer. Strangely enough, you must use chrome. The MSOD is better syncing capabilities. I especially like how the MSOD app can be protected With biometric password access. iCloud does not have that, so my files on the iCloud service are more vulnerable. One advantage of the iCloud service is that you can buy smaller memory like 200 GB for $2.99/m, whereas MS sells 1 TB for $69/y, which is high, but it comes with Office 365. Both services should offer 500GB.
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!
Only Organizes New Uploads
by zhugedai12 on 2018/09/23 16:02
The September 23, 2018 update says it is now organizing my camera roll folder by year and month. This is a great idea. This would be a better idea if it also organized the zillions of photos and videos in my camera roll that are not included because they were uploaded before the update. So unless this feature is gonna big to be included then please include the option to disable automatically sorting new photos and videos into folders like the website version of OneDrive has allowed for a few weeks now. I don’t want half of my camera roll organized and he other half a bloody mess, it’s all or nothing. If that feature is not going to be included then please also rerun the option of scrolling the button on the right up and down and automatically listing which month and year the photos and videos are from so I can still find stuff.
Intuitive Digital Document Storage Drive
by stellar parallax on 2019/06/06 06:53
Very easy to learn, visually offers 3 different screen view of your files - my favorite is the one where you see folder icons (although I wonder if there a way to add color options for each folder, and then maybe digital sticky notes to mark important documents of different sizes and various color palettes) appeals to a different type of person, I love the file folder icon layout very grateful! Taught several realtor benefit of using OneDrive and they caught on quickly, so thank you very much. Also can you please add a system that alerts each agent of important deadlines? And finally could we make it so you can take certain files out of a folder and add the removed to broader group? Y’all have created wonderful software!
Corruption to promote Office
by The Way Climax on 2019/09/27 13:21
A while ago, OneDrive could open any Office documents directly from the app for the general purpose of viewing. During an update, they removed that feature and made you download Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to view it to promote these Office apps. This is seriously corrupt and I want OneDrive to be able to view documents without having to download other apps. I would still be fine with Office if they work nicely and smoothly. Office apps are buggy, glitchy and they have multiple errors that I hate, like automatically editing a Read Only word doc. I think Microsoft knows this and has the ability to fix it perfectly, but they are just toning down the app on iOS to make it feel worse than on Windows. Onedrive and the Office suite used to be pretty good and not buggy at all, but recent efforts have made them near unusable, with new interface and crappy scrolling. If Microsoft does not fix this ASAP, I will stop using Office and OneDrive on my iPhone and tell everyone of your dirty practices.
Useful but Why Does it Need Location Services Continuously
by KevinPurcell on 2019/11/30 12:08
This app is very useful for back up in the sinking between your iPhone and other devices. I have turned on photo upload in the background but it doesn’t really work very well unless you have location services turned on all the time which eats up battery life. There is no good reason to need location services all the time just to upload photos. Plus uploading of large videos often hangs or stalls because of this. Other than that it’s a useful app but they need to really fix this. UPDATE: I understand the background services that require you to turn on location ask the time is an iOS issue. But I often get one our more pictures in photos that just won’t upload. I have to restart my phone sometimes to get it to upload. Forcing the app closed or turning off connection doesn’t work.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Improvements required
by Mikey T Ward on 2020/07/04 00:19
Love what you have done in the past with this app but needs more work. Needs to have a way to show which folders or files I am sharing and have it show with who and a way to adjust acess levels or remove them from the shared folders or files. Also need the opetion to share files and folders like what I would do on you website but needs to be done in the app as well so we can be more predictive and can do more on each devise. Also can you also list all storage upgrade options so that if I need to buy more storage I can see all options and not just the next step up from what I have. Also make a videos tab so I can have all folder files listed in its own category so it would be easer and faster to acess those files in the app and do this to the website as well. Also need to add support of adding more than 1 personal onedrive account to the app as some of us need to separate personal filEs from ones belonging to a boys scout troop.
If this isn’t hell, then I do not know what is.
by ThrowOutTheApp on 2019/11/09 22:08
I can count on one hand the number of times that this app has worked smoothly and without errors. It is so unfortunate that it somehow weaseled its way into being a mainstay at my academic institution. Googling issues I have with the app shows me that I am not the only one, but also provides me with no help. I find myself having to do the most bass-ackwards things to even bring a LOW level of functionality to this and I would throw the whole thing in the trash if I didn’t have to use it to share information with my peers. Honestly, it seems like I fix one thing, and then something else goes wrong, and after fixing the second problem the first problem starts again or there is a new problem. THROW THIS ENTIRE APP IN THE GARBAGE. Again, I can not stress how terrible the support and functionality are for this, to the extent that I’m taking time to write this extremely negative review instead of working on projects that I need to be completing.
Office-wide use! Love it! If only...
by U2Nighthawk on 2019/08/22 22:48
I’ve got 60 people in my office using this app to upload and track vehicle receipts with the camera phone taking out the Lens app step. It’s worked terrifically and made the whole process a LOT easier! Love that!!! but... I wish there was a way to change the default file save name for those images from “scan from...” to a a personalized name like the tag number for the vehicle so it wouldn’t have to be renamed each time after the fact. It would also be really helpful to be able to more easily save an image to some holding account where it would sit when there isn’t a cell tower available to upload to the OneDrive once we’re back in range of a cell tower! Those two improvements would make this app a complete rockstar for business use in my opinion!
Photos
by Jakyyxe on 2019/06/15 06:01
So if you basically store photos here, wait for a few months and I guarantee some of your photos have been deleted without them notifying you your items have been deleted. I don’t just delete pictures without storing the pictures here in OneDrive. I had a family member that passed recently and I had pictures of us stored in one drive and going back to it, I could not find my pictures. Not in the recycling or in other folders. NO WHERE. And my sister had the same issues. She had pictures of my baby sister when she was younger and we were trying to make a collage for her in school for her project and we could not find the pictures. I know they were on OneDrive because we would go back and relive the memory on here and now our images are gone and we have no way of getting them back. I’m very upset because the pictures mean something to my family and OneDrive just deletes it like nothing.
Happy until now

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!
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.
Overall good but...
by Keith in Tucson on 2021/01/03 23:51
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 🙁
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.
Love Love Love MSOD app ! ! !
by Jennie*o1 on 2018/10/14 18:02
What on earth would I possibly due without my MSOD app? I WOULD be lost! I use it all the time! I own my own business so when i am sending files it makes it easy to convert files to pdf, word, etc.. and is easy to open the document in another app (like PDFfiller if I want to fax the document or something like that.) convenient and easy to use. They offer a ton of support if you need it. I have only two (smallish) complaints: 1.) when i am working on a document that i had uploaded to MSOD, & if i exit and then come back to it later to continue editing, the FONT will change from what i previously picked before-to-HELVITICA font. Then, i have to RE-EDIT the formatting for ALL the different sections that i had put any text in my document. Which is really odd & very annoying! 2.) when i am working on my document it will often just close out & any editing i had done will NOT saved, so if i was writing something and it just closed out, then everything that i had just done, would be LOST! It could be something in my settings for issue #1? But idk. Also my app is up to date. I use a iPad 5th Gen.
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 .
No file extension=Security Risk
by LAX20531 on 2020/06/17 16:14
I use both OneDrive Biz and Personal and we struggle with the use of this product that does not provide the basic functionality its competitors have had for years: 1. Detail view of folders and files by default (or an option to default to that and no keep changing it back) 2. File extensions are missing, they are important, and their absence is a security risk. This dumbing down of IT is tragic. 3. Dates don’t display the year, ever. They don’t make sense either. 4. File properties omits the FULL folder path. It only provides the last folder in the path to which the file resides. Consider this example: 2019\Plan\Expenses\file (no .xlsx) 2020\Plan\Expenses\file (no .xlsx) Because the full path is missing, when searching (Results show “Expenses\file”.) There is no way to identify the correct file without opening them all. Huge oversight. 5. Boolean search: Search is a disaster. Not only is it undocumented, it is unreliable. The same file path issue exists as above. 6. Business users (most) have no use for Photos or photo upload. Put that in a separate app and focus on its development on the consumer side. It provides business with no value. 7. We’re stuck with OneDrive because of its interdependency with O365, but it must be imported.
Great For YouTubers Who Edit On A Different Device!
by PotoesForLife! on 2020/03/11 17:14
Okay, let’s start off with the story. I’m a Roblox youtuber, and recently I had downloaded Roblox on my computer and realized how easy it was to control and film. So now I film on my computer. But it’s hard for me to edit on computer. So I needed to transport my videos onto my iPad, which I’m more comfortable editing on. OneDrive is super simple and easy to use! All I have to do (after the video is recorded and saved) is go to files, and then drag the video into OneDrive! Then after some time, it downloads and shows it on my iPad! It’s super simple to download to your camera roll too, all you have to do is press the three dots and then download! Thank you OneDrive!!
Behind the times. By a lot.
by cajunh2o on 2019/06/02 23:33
Absolutely loved one drive at first. Now? That I decided to try and cut costs I realized how much of a mistake it was. Over 2k pictures of my kids in OneDrive. Can’t move them. A big ward why don’t you have this is a select all feature. Every other major app has it and people in forums have been asking for it for over 3 years now. Still nothing. So spent over an hour swerving each picture individually to try to download back to phone. As soon as I hit download. App crashes. Start over. Suddenly getting errors that I can’t download certain files with no explanation and app crashes again. So now my pictures are being held hostage. I can’t cut the cost because of this. Just want my pictures moved. But Microsoft and their customer service has been zero help. If I could give less than one star I would. (No computer so that’s not an option. App should accommodate any features needed for users regardless of platform)
Cancel Not Responding During Delayed Video Upload Attempt
by Healthy BP on 2020/05/02 16:03
I have very good experience with using the app. Two days ago using my iPhone 6 I tried to upload a video that may have been too long but it’s not letting me cancel the request. Have not been able to upload pictures or videos to the one drive for two days now. May 2, 2020 - additional comments I have had to delete and reload the app several times in order to upload photos from my iPhone 6. Now it is getting to the point that doesn’t work. I use the cloud storage for other reasons but copying over the photos is an important one and I am disappointed it’s not working as well since the software update to Microsoft 365 as compared to how this functioned with the label of Office 365.
Great App but doesn’t work on the IPad Pro
by MarmieMcD on 2018/07/14 02:28
I have an Ipad Pro recently issued new from my employer. I have a Microsoft 365 account through my employer and I’ve had a personal account for years. I’ve used the one drive app as well for years. However now with the 365 account I started to use the One Note app for both personal and business use. I use it across my iPhone, my iPad and my PC. The features of the App work great on my phone and my PC and even my older iPad2 but not my new iPad Pro. I cannot insert a file from OneNote as it doesn’t even show up as a location when I browse?? I’ve used the CHAT HELP on line and they switched over to an expert but then got a message that the business hours were over and I had to call back during business hours but it was 4:30 EST? This would be a great App if it worked with the insert file feature so that I could make up notes and photos and whatever??
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.
Ok, but lacks responsiveness
by r3dsky on 2019/06/18 08:52
I like the way the team behind Onedrive is responding to feedback and there’s definitely a lot of improvement over the years. I really want to love OneDrive with all my heart. I really do! The main reason why I still prefer a very well know competitor product, is the overall responsivness and usability of the app - even more so on desktop. In direct comparison, everything is much more sluggish on desktop, from app opening to sync etc. and sync conflicts happen more often - on Windows!! On a Mac it’s even worse. I use my cloud storage to sync documents on a variety of systems: iOS, MacOs, Windows. As an end user of cloud storage, it doesn’t matter if the iOS app works great, but there are usability issues on other OSes: a unified experience matters. At least make it the best possible experience on your own OS. Pretty please.
Auto camera upload
by Waffles was taken on 2017/11/13 19:23
You apparently can not auto upload pics from the camera roll to onedrive for business. This is stupid. Part of what I do at work is take pictures of random stuff that I need keep in onedrive for Business for things like evidence, etc. Microsoft seems to want me to put these evidence pics into a personal onedrive account...I’d get fired for doing that. Microsoft apparently wants me to get fired for evidence chain of custody/ethics/etc violations. Microsoft, this is not incentive for people to use your products. Microsoft, why do you care if ppl upload their camera roll to onedrive for business? So, I’m supposed to get my boss to give me the approval to pay for Dropbox Business subs for my whole team because it would allow us to work on a platform that would not violate various company policies because it would be done at the department level. Microsoft, this is crazy easy to fix, just allow people to auto upload the camera roll.
Almost perfect
by RobbieGB on 2019/10/05 21:53
There’s a lots to love about this. Yes, more things sync through Dropbox than OneDrive and Apple makes everything Apple go though iCloud easier. But I love Office 365. It’s perfect for my family of 5. We get all the Office apps on all our devices AND each get 1TB of storage. You can have up to 6 family members too. Dropbox is WAY more expensive and you don’t get the apps. I also like OneNote A LOT which you can store on OneDrive. So I’m a Mac user but I’m also a dedicated OneDrive/365 user and will be for as long as Microsoft continues to make good Office apps and OneDrive for a reasonable price. I use OneDrive on my MacBook Pro, iPhone and iPad. The rear of the family also uses it on their computers and iPhones. OneDrive has replaced Dropbox for me!
Love this mail app for work-issue report
by Sickntiredofthis on 2018/02/26 11:15
Have been using this app for accessing work email (exchange server) since last fall. Just like sitting in the office using Outlook on the network. Starting early February, the app began not logging into our mail server successfully even though the correct login info was being provided. We use MDM on our phones for encryption. I could attempt the login numerous times without locking out my network account indicating that Outlook wasn’t actually “knocking” at the n/w door. I had a week or two window of time when the app worked perfectly, then last week, the issue repeated intermittently. Currently it’s working. I’ve also placed a review for MDM. Our IT staff confirms all is and has been good with our exchange server.
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.
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.
They don't care
by BrownSugarBritches on 2017/10/23 14:50
I uploaded nearly 2k pictures. All were easily accessible and available for viewing. One random day 1,600 pics became unavailable. Not able to see them in the app, on the website, the desktop or the laptop. Not able to download and view. Every email I sent was returned with "we think you uploaded them incorrectly", followed by "you're using the old version of the app, you need to update it". Not true. Then it was "log off and log on". For what? And twice they've "escalated" the ticket. NOW, they're just ignoring me. They "escalated" my ticket on July 02, 2017, (for the second time) and they haven't said a word to me or responded to my emails since then. I'm angry but they obviously don't care that I trusted them with my pictures and they lost them. After asking them repeatedly THEY FINALLY RESPONDED LAST WEEK. They said “sorry, seems the files are corrupt, kindly upload them again”. WHATs THE POINT OF LOADING ANYTHING INTO THE CLOUD???

Constantly reset or once app is opened

Constantly reset or once app is open it closes immediately? I’m applying the update hoping this helps before I give a fair rating
Great Cloud App!
by pure map to thousand and three on 2021/01/22 14:48
I love Onedrive! This app never fails to synchronize between all my devices and now has live photos support which is pretty exciting.
Awesome 👏!

OneDrive
by Mandi's Best on 2021/01/22 01:12
Absolutely looooove one drive!!! It’s so efficient to be able to work on the go and not be confined to a computer and makes it so easy to save all of my documents and send them as well! Looooove OneDrive!!! Would absolutely recommend this program to anyone who is very busy and needs to work while on the go and can’t be tied to a computer or laptop all the time!
Use it on a daily basis
by artoocee on 2021/01/21 21:34

Keeps getting worse
by E2tech on 2021/01/21 14:45
Each version keeps getting worse When I open a random file flashes the the app opens viewing. Once the app opens it doesn’t recognize the latest files on the cloud. Viewing excel files with tabs is broken. No way to clear recents history and recent history is not actually showing the correct recent history. Somehow the recent history is not working either.
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!
Reando’s Review

“OneDrive is absolutely wonderful, in that it allows me to store huge files from pics to documents in a private, safe and secured way because of encryption technology.
Sort out the duplicate folders issue
by StephenD~ on 2021/01/21 05:31
For months now the one drive for a business section of the app shows two of every folder. This only appears on the iPhone app, everywhere else - on my PC, on the website it is just fine. My personal account on the iPhone is just fine. But my business account shows two of every folder and every item in the folder.
The app is OK. Not great, but OK.
by FNAFboi on 2021/01/21 04:19
The main problem for me is the sync issues that occur every now and then. It might not seem like a big deal, but they can be very annoying and delay productivity.
Going from 30GB to 5GB
by faviles on 2021/01/21 01:47
I'm one of those loyal customers that Microsoft punished by lowering the storage capacity from 30GB to 5GB without a valid reason. This is ridiculous in modern times (2017+) so I’ll give you a one star rating until my last breath. Two years later (2019) It appears that Dark MODE is more important for Microsoft than a good amount of free storage for your customers. /

Worst technical support
by frustrated onderive on 2021/01/20 15:29
This is my second year into Onedrive. It had happened twice already that my files were been deleted or moved. The first time, technical support was efficient. Technician remotely came into my computer and restored everything. Second time was a nightmare. They took days to respond. My technician was a guy name Shalabh. He asked me same thing 3 times already in a period of weeks and still could not provide anything solid to solve my problem. There is no one higher that I can reach too. I have lots business files were missing or being placed somewhere else. Thankfully I did a back up in my hard drive a couple month again so I was able to retrieve some of my files back. But it has been a nightmare with Onedrive and I highly don’t recommend it.
Annoyed
by Missy Lit on 2021/01/20 14:07
I recently got a new phone and for some reason the app is trying to reupload all of my photos again. This is very frustrating for multiple reasons, but most importantly I haven’t been able to upload the recent photos I’ve taken due to the app trying to start from the beginning of my camera feed. I usually love this app and have been using it for years and would hate to cancel my subscription because of this. However, it’s frustrating that the app no longer works the same. It’s never done this in the past when I changed phones so I’m confused as to what’s different now.

Delete photos
by open minded Independent on 2021/01/18 23:20
How do you delete multiple photos?
Can’t share photos easily
by waxoid on 2021/01/18 19:10
If photo storage is a goal, can’t really recommend because you can’t copy photos to share out to message threads or social media. It creates a link to OneDrive instead, presumably for engagement and trying to sell subscriptions to your contacts. I literally end up making screenshots to share photos.
F-ing Garbage
by MarcBerm on 2021/01/18 15:19
If I didn’t have to delete and reinstall the app every time I want it to sync with the cloud it might actually be useful.
No copy function what a joke
by Rnph on 2021/01/17 23:56
It’s amazing that Microsoft almost forces people into using OneDrive and then doesn’t provide an actual copy function forcing users of iPads to use a PC to update or transfer multiple files. Microsoft monopolistic behavior never ends....

Three different OneDrive
by jimjoe dandy on 2021/01/17 05:11
Spread out over three devices, no contentiousness. Worst of all, iPod with the iMovie app can’t upload to my other social media. My laptop has all my photos named, other devices don’t recognize the name, put up the number.
Suuuuucks!
by jejaconu on 2021/01/16 02:09
The files rarely transfer from device to device if they aren’t apple to apple or windows to windows. This can’t be the final answer.
Passwords
by noimejico on 2021/01/15 19:47
Have to add new password every time I use it almost. Google and Apple don’t remember password so I don’t use it much. Try to use same password won’t let you do it so ok if you don’t mind changing password often otherwise don’t use it.

App crashing
by IdahoLauraLou on 2021/01/11 01:30
Any idea why the app crashes and closes multiple times while trying to back up my photos? Since the Live backup was added to re upload the pictures to capture the “Live” part of the picture the number of photos to complete is stuck. I feel like every time the app crashes and I have to open it again it has to start over, and will never finish.

Why is it so hard to organize files and folders?
by torrie62 on 2021/01/07 22:22
I waste so much time trying to save and find docs and Exl and pretty much everything because I can’t an easy way to view drives and folders shared, in cloud and on device from the top down, or the bottom up. Add the frustration of trying to move and store docs created with competitive vendors software (a practical necessity since everyone uses something different these days) collaboration is a mess. Everything defaults to the source google, MS, icloud, Adobe cloud backup. Icloud used be convenient. But now it’s all a mess. I’m ready to buy a hard drive and give up on cloud storage.

Amazing app
Full of bugs on the iPad
by Jerjosjud on 2021/01/06 07:26
Used to work quite well, but I guess there have been too many improvements. About three months ago, all Office products started telling me that my saved documents couldn’t be found because the folder had been removed from the server, even though I could still access them in OneDrive. As inconvenient as that was, I could still open the files in OneDrive and then open them in the appropriate program. But now I have to sign in every time I open OneDrive, AND I also frequently get error messages that a document can’t be opened, no explanation given. At that point, I have to go to my desktop to retrieve my documents. I guess Microsoft decided to make their platforms incompatible with Apple devices again. Too bad. It makes my subscription worthless.

Poor quality photo transfer
by PvZ Addict - Seriously on 2021/01/05 16:12
I downloaded this OneDrive app to my iPhone. Any photo I take on my phone will transfer to my computer using the app, but is seriously degraded in quality. Interestingly enough, photos that I download from social media transfer just fine with no reduction in quality. I suppose I could add the extra step of uploading every single photo I take to social media, saving it, then transferring it via OneDrive. OR you guys can, you know, fix the bug.
Great app
by SMTUSMC on 2021/01/05 12:26
I give app 4 stars because I love that it saves all my photos from my phone and my wife’s plus any files I may need to save. But I wish I it could save the Live Photo’s from the new iPhones
Falls Short - Missing basic features
by GeorgeReview on 2021/01/05 04:11
Background camera upload reliability - Dicey Doesn't Support IOS Live Photos - Work account doesn’t work Camera Uplload : forces a year incongruent with personal Offline files in non standard format so iOS and Android file viewer can't browse or easily copy them. Can't share the actual file without downloading it to the local device. only the link is provided immediately. Need to be able to just do a quick copy and paste. Sharing continuous / everybody doesn’t work cleanly- STILL, get permission errors.
Solid app
by Arclone on 2021/01/05 03:19
Office 365 user here so I must admit the terabyte of storage gives me some bias. Solid app, navigation is good. Would have given 5 stars except for a few things I'd like to see improved upon: some picture formats not native to your camera will not auto backup- such as those saved by Snapseed. Others such as larger photos taken on a real camera and uploaded from pc, blank placeholder thumbnail and can't view the image. Support for Live Photos would also be nice. Edit: Live Photo support was added - way to go guys! Now if we just had thumbnail support for some of the large DSLR camera image formats...
Finally added “Live Photos”
by martinaire on 2021/01/05 02:58
Update: They added “Live Photos”. Can’t complain now. OneDrive still doesn't upload "Live Photos". Google Photos has had this capability for months. Other than that, the app is great.

Overall good but...
by Keith in Tucson on 2021/01/03 23:51
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 🙁

Unreliable and slow picture syncing
by Hawaii listener on 2021/01/02 13:00
I have to restart my iPhone for one drive to talk to my one drive account. Also, picture syncing takes hours. Word documents and PDFs sync almost instantly. But my pictures are only in my phone until I can sync it on my computer. This unreliable aspect affects my ability to do my inspection job. I would choose an alternative or transfer pictures another way.

Love the storage
by Writer312312 on 2021/01/02 00:29
This is the only storage app where I can truly offload my pics and videos. Both google photos + iCloud delete the images if you delete them off your phone, so it’s more truly storing everything ! I’ve tried lighting adapters to SIM cards but they get too hot if they’re really cheap. In transferring thousands of photos. And one drive is the only app that lets me actually delete them from my phone AND stores them to look at later. It’s the perfect way to free up space on my phone. I’m a photo hoarder and filled up my new phone more than half way ;^; I love this app so much. Easy to use across all platforms (phone and laptop)

by Rob Hoods on 2020/12/30 17:00
1- OneDrive need to maintain view (list or grid) and sorting options. I have to constantly change back to list view and sorting by newest. Please fix this so I don’t have to change every single time. 2-Recent should include Folders, not just Files 3-Every single file should have the option to open its folder instead of searching over again. I just go straight to a specific folder from a drop down menu of a file. 4-Slow to sync
Unreliable syncing
by yakyakgo on 2020/12/30 00:17
My one drive would not back up my files and photos consistently and I finally figured out why. One drive has to be purposefully opened to start syncing and then your screen cannot go off or even the prescreen light dim. Once that occurs syncing will stop. You will need to go back into one note for it to start syncing again. Back in 1995 I could at least schedule my comp to backup overnight. Now I have to remember to open one note every day and make sure I’m on my phone long enough to ensure I don’t lose any documents....absolutely ridiculous. Microsoft programmers need to be paired with someone from the business side so they can better understand their customer and get out of their tech team silos.

iOS and Mac users watch out
by vickM4sv on 2020/12/28 13:50
I bought one year subscription with the hope I can backup my iPhone photos and content from MacBook. Cons - can’t handle 5k photos back from an iPhone. Sync is the worst among all storage services. Nothing works including reinstalling up. In last 24hrs hrs barely backed up few photos. - I tried my existing Google Drive and Dropbox which work flawlessly - MacBook user had no meaningful one way backup where you wanna backup your files to OneDrive. On Mac it only allows you to sync one drive files to Mac which will not backup your Mac. So it’s totally useless Spent $69.99 for this terrible experience during holiday. C’mon Microsoft you can do better than this.

I will get to the problem, one drive doesn’t update files and pics in background, IT DOESN’T! Its been more than 2 years I have been using it, same consistent issue. So every time I have to open the app leave it on and thats how it updates everything, otherwise the app is great, but thats a very crucial functional FAILURE for a cloud storage app, I don’t know how so many people didn’t notice this and gave 5 stars, confusing! I am a fan of MS products BUT this one drive !!!

The fact that you have to keep the app open and turn off photo optimization in order to auto upload to one drive makes the app somewhat useless to me. I will just have to use iCloud Drive to store all my photos. BIG let down.

It would be marvelous if the OneDrive app had the ability to hide images that are not in your photos folder. When browsing your gallery, you will see cover art from albums, and all sorts of other nonsense intermixed with your personal photos. The web application has this ability and it would be nice to see it implemented in the app.

Very unstable
by tigerJohnny123 on 2020/12/19 23:16
Terribly unstable. Let me list the shortcomings: Can’t download files for offline use. Says “There was an issue affecting the download of…” or something along that line. Open in another app rarely if ever works. The popup would appear, you tap on the app, and it wouldn’t do anything at all or would hang for 5-10 minutes on large files Common filetypes, like mkv, is still not supported after being requested by users YEARS ago. General instability and UI bugs/missing features are common. For instance, where is the select all or select multiple files/folders option? It looks like you have to awkwardly tap & hold the folder/file, but that rarely works. Sometimes files aren’t completely downloaded/uploaded, Trying to open/download those files would mean working with a corrupted file, but there is no indications of it on the app. There should be incomplete upload/download indication. I just signed up for 1TB subscription to OneDrive and so far I’m HIGHLY disappointed. Expected a lot better software quality from Microsoft. May be looking at trying out Google One next if these issues aren’t fixed soon.

Latest Version Killed all my Offline Files

Amazing Application
by elenagevene on 2020/10/06 02:59
I researched multiple applications to back up all my devices ie phones, lap tops, and desktops. I took the time to compare each detail between all the options available. Given the amount of storage needed and price I chose to go with OneDrive and it was the best decision. I was able to back up information on all my devices and coincidently a few weeks after my Mac book of 12+ years gave me the black screen of death. What would have been a devastating moment of photos and documents that would have been lost turned into a humorous moment knowing nothing was lost aside from the 12+ year old laptop. I was so grateful I had backed up everything to OneDrive because I didn’t loose anything nor did I have to go through the trouble of paying someone to retrieve the data I would have lost. It was all already saved to OneDrive which I can access from anywhere on any device. Do yourself a favor and bite the bullet and get OneDrive! You can thank me later.
The Best For Online Storage and Sync Files
by Kedna78 on 2019/09/18 17:12
I can’t praise enough OneDrive. I had been using it since the SkyDrive days. Those days were storage heaven. I was able to rack up to 50 gigabytes of free storage. Well, OneDrive came to life and changed things. Some improved and some got canned like the amount of free storage. That is the only reason it I take one star from it. The good stuff it’s what in my opinion, makes OneDrive the number one app for online storage. Easy to sync files across Windows PC and IOS mobile devices. The integration of OneDrive with Windows Personal files can be somehow problematic since by default makes OneDrive upload everything you put on those folders. If you don’t want every file on those folders getting uploaded and take precious space just change the settings on Windows to stop OneDrive to upload the content on those folders. I found less complicated to just create a new folder on the system Desktop and name it “My OneDrive” then create sub-folders for E-books, Pictures, spreadsheets and so on... then drop there everything I want to sync across mobile devices. That way I have more control over what goes into One Drive instead of letting Windows do it for me. Also makes me be more organized with the content I own.
Good but needs to be MUCH better
by JP Mears on 2020/04/23 22:28
It does what it needs to in terms of cloud storage on the iPad. It’s best if you have an office 365 subscription so that you get the 1TB of storage, which is great for me because it allows me to store all my files easily. It could be A LOT BETTER though. First, it does have files app integration which for some reason only allows you to copy files from the iPad to OneDrive, not to simply move them. Second, they say it has multi window support for iPadOS 13 but not really. Each time you try to add another window, you get an error message saying that you can only open a file in another window, not another file browser. Also you are very limited in terms of sort and view options, you can only view files in a list or as icons. When viewing photos and videos with the icon view, you can’t see the file name and can only do so by clicking the info button for each individual file. It would be much better if you had other view options like some sort of cover flow type view or something else. Also, the scan option is nice but it would be really nice if it had an option to scan book/textbook pages.
Saving to OneDrive is now a pain
by NicksOtherName on 2020/08/28 12:15
UPDATE: still don't have integration in Save to Files, but I'll give back a couple of stars because I can save to both OneDrive accounts Using the OneDrive option out of the Share menu. This method seems more reliable than Save to Files, so some improvement there and not looking back. The method to switch accounts is a little counter-intuitive, but it's definitely there - just took a minute for this impatient reviewer to find it. Still wish I could save directly to SharePoint - that would get the app to 5 stars. Both app and iOS updates recently installed. Had slightly flaky results from "Save to Files" function, but could manage last week to save to either Personal or Work OneDrive accounts. Now, not so much. No OneDrive entries in Save to Files. If I share and select OneDrive, oy the personal account is accessible. Please fix support for Save to Files so that I can reliably copy images, attachments, etc. to OneDrive, OneDrive for Business and connected SharePoint sites. This is basic expected functionality in a cloud storage access app.
Great App for Saving Everything!
by Reazorsharp on 2019/07/04 13:04
This works great for saving everything- documents, pictures, downloads, and videos. It can be set up to upload automatically as you take pictures or videos. It saves things in their own file folders by dates, making it easier to find what your looking for. It saves information about the pictures, videos, and files. I have a 1T so I have more than enough room for anything. You can delete items and if you accidentally delete something you can find it in the trash file & recover it if you need too. I’ve never had any problems with it. I can also access it from any device using the app or the website. This is a great thing to have. Never worry about loosing anything from a virus on computer/laptop/phone because this can be accessed in many ways.
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.
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.
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.
Power Users, this app isn’t for you.
by tonygaglio on 2020/04/06 00:28
For the last two years I have submitted feedback and notices to the OneDrive team, sent a UserVoice, and posted in the r/OneDrive reddit. All ignored. Camera upload is broken. It works until it doesn’t, gets stuck on “setting things up” and flat out stalls on most videos/images. When it works, it’s nice. But that’s rare. I hate to be critical of the app, but this is beyond ridiculous. Camera upload is a critical feature that is surprising they haven’t spent more addressing. I’ve experienced problems with camera upload on iPad 2, iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone 7 and iOS 11, iOS 12, and the iOS 13 beta. I’ve had problems over fiber 1000mps upload connection and 4G LTE. The competitors (AMZN and GOOG) apps work perfectly fine. Please Microsoft, fix this app. Good luck streaming videos from OneDrive with you have greater than 1 TB of filled stored, 40,000+ files. The app just won’t load. Unfortunately this is the case for my account. No videos load and the overall performance is sluggish under heavy load of files. It can’t handle fast searches when you have libraries of >1,000 small files.
Can’t use it to judge — stuck on advertisement!
by jcbroadbent_1961 on 2020/06/09 22:31
I’m trying not to give Microsoft OneDrive a bad review, but I can’t use it to know if it’s worthwhile. Logging on, then scrolling through the pages quickly brings me to an advertisement for Premium OneDrive services, including a 7 day free trial to Microsoft Office 365. There is a little X in the upper right corner to cluck on and close the advertisement, but it doesn’t function! I can’t go backwards and I can’t go forward — unless I want to read the Terms of Service or Sign up for a monthly subscription! Finally, I gave up trying to delete the page which was preventing me from moving forward and actually using the app. I signed up for the Premium Service making a mental note to cancel my subscription before my 7 day trial expired and they started debuting me for $6.99 every month. The next time I opened the app I was confronted with same same advertisement, even though I had already signed up for it. BOTTOM LINE: Attention Microsoft! Either fix your ad so I can click out of it, or delete it from the OneDrive app!!! This doesn’t help me want to use Microsoft products!!!
Accessibility
by Wuest2 on 2020/07/31 17:26
I like One Drive a lot. However, when it’s icon comes up as an option to send or save something into it, it does not provide me an option to create a new folder or to select the folder I would want to send or save my file in. Yes, I can do save it that way but I have to go to “Save to Files” first, then select it as an option - an additional 2 or 3 steps more. Also, if I create a new folder, I am unable to paste a copied set of text into it - I am only allowed to save a file or graphics into it. Apple’s iCloud storage allows me to do all that. Unless you upgrade to include those plus other features more, users like myself would be inclined to eventually move most of our storage to Apple’s iCloud - which is also cheaper than your monthly subscription. This is just a suggestion that you hopefully will take into consideration. I love your Office Suite - it’s the only one that keeps me using One Drive.
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.
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.
Unreliable
by MDBoyz on 2019/03/31 16:51
If there’s anything you’d want most in a cloud storage/backup/sync service, it would be reliability. On that score, OneDrive fails in ways I’ve never experienced with Google Drive, Box or Dropbox (I use all 4). First, the iOS app constantly crashes. You open a directory to browse and it either crashes or fails to load. The bugs don’t stop there. Sort by date and for the most part it works, but there will be random files at the top (newest) that don’t belong, often more than a year old. Second, the app doesn’t sync in the background. You might think that you could use OneDrive instead of paying for iCloud to sync your photos. But with iCloud your photos always sync; no need to worry. With OneDrive you have to open the app to the photos tab before they sync. So all those great photos you took on vacation you thought were automatically syncing weren’t. Finally, the Windows PC version suffers from the same unreliability. Random files don’t sync, especially Microsoft Visio files. The app will pause itself without warning, something you’ll only find out days later when an important file is out of date. You’ll put the icon in your always-visible taskbar icons to make sure you’re warned of issues, and on the next upgrade it reverts to hiding in the extra icons pulldown. Most of the time OneDrive works. But when it doesn’t, it won’t be expected, it won’t warn you, and you’ll be as frustrated as I am.
Better Cloud Choice
by Merchantshipper on 2017/10/31 03:48
I use two cloud services. I use the Apple iCloud for work (200GB), and the Microsoft One Drive for personal (1TB). I tried both in order to compare them to see which is better, and I think MSOD is the better of the two. What I especially like is the ease of uploading folders; however, I am surprised you can’t upload folders using Microsoft Internet Explorer. Strangely enough, you must use chrome. The MSOD is better syncing capabilities. I especially like how the MSOD app can be protected With biometric password access. iCloud does not have that, so my files on the iCloud service are more vulnerable. One advantage of the iCloud service is that you can buy smaller memory like 200 GB for $2.99/m, whereas MS sells 1 TB for $69/y, which is high, but it comes with Office 365. Both services should offer 500GB.
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!
Only Organizes New Uploads
by zhugedai12 on 2018/09/23 16:02
The September 23, 2018 update says it is now organizing my camera roll folder by year and month. This is a great idea. This would be a better idea if it also organized the zillions of photos and videos in my camera roll that are not included because they were uploaded before the update. So unless this feature is gonna big to be included then please include the option to disable automatically sorting new photos and videos into folders like the website version of OneDrive has allowed for a few weeks now. I don’t want half of my camera roll organized and he other half a bloody mess, it’s all or nothing. If that feature is not going to be included then please also rerun the option of scrolling the button on the right up and down and automatically listing which month and year the photos and videos are from so I can still find stuff.
Intuitive Digital Document Storage Drive
by stellar parallax on 2019/06/06 06:53
Very easy to learn, visually offers 3 different screen view of your files - my favorite is the one where you see folder icons (although I wonder if there a way to add color options for each folder, and then maybe digital sticky notes to mark important documents of different sizes and various color palettes) appeals to a different type of person, I love the file folder icon layout very grateful! Taught several realtor benefit of using OneDrive and they caught on quickly, so thank you very much. Also can you please add a system that alerts each agent of important deadlines? And finally could we make it so you can take certain files out of a folder and add the removed to broader group? Y’all have created wonderful software!
Corruption to promote Office
by The Way Climax on 2019/09/27 13:21
A while ago, OneDrive could open any Office documents directly from the app for the general purpose of viewing. During an update, they removed that feature and made you download Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to view it to promote these Office apps. This is seriously corrupt and I want OneDrive to be able to view documents without having to download other apps. I would still be fine with Office if they work nicely and smoothly. Office apps are buggy, glitchy and they have multiple errors that I hate, like automatically editing a Read Only word doc. I think Microsoft knows this and has the ability to fix it perfectly, but they are just toning down the app on iOS to make it feel worse than on Windows. Onedrive and the Office suite used to be pretty good and not buggy at all, but recent efforts have made them near unusable, with new interface and crappy scrolling. If Microsoft does not fix this ASAP, I will stop using Office and OneDrive on my iPhone and tell everyone of your dirty practices.
Useful but Why Does it Need Location Services Continuously
by KevinPurcell on 2019/11/30 12:08
This app is very useful for back up in the sinking between your iPhone and other devices. I have turned on photo upload in the background but it doesn’t really work very well unless you have location services turned on all the time which eats up battery life. There is no good reason to need location services all the time just to upload photos. Plus uploading of large videos often hangs or stalls because of this. Other than that it’s a useful app but they need to really fix this. UPDATE: I understand the background services that require you to turn on location ask the time is an iOS issue. But I often get one our more pictures in photos that just won’t upload. I have to restart my phone sometimes to get it to upload. Forcing the app closed or turning off connection doesn’t work.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Improvements required
by Mikey T Ward on 2020/07/04 00:19
Love what you have done in the past with this app but needs more work. Needs to have a way to show which folders or files I am sharing and have it show with who and a way to adjust acess levels or remove them from the shared folders or files. Also need the opetion to share files and folders like what I would do on you website but needs to be done in the app as well so we can be more predictive and can do more on each devise. Also can you also list all storage upgrade options so that if I need to buy more storage I can see all options and not just the next step up from what I have. Also make a videos tab so I can have all folder files listed in its own category so it would be easer and faster to acess those files in the app and do this to the website as well. Also need to add support of adding more than 1 personal onedrive account to the app as some of us need to separate personal filEs from ones belonging to a boys scout troop.
If this isn’t hell, then I do not know what is.
by ThrowOutTheApp on 2019/11/09 22:08
I can count on one hand the number of times that this app has worked smoothly and without errors. It is so unfortunate that it somehow weaseled its way into being a mainstay at my academic institution. Googling issues I have with the app shows me that I am not the only one, but also provides me with no help. I find myself having to do the most bass-ackwards things to even bring a LOW level of functionality to this and I would throw the whole thing in the trash if I didn’t have to use it to share information with my peers. Honestly, it seems like I fix one thing, and then something else goes wrong, and after fixing the second problem the first problem starts again or there is a new problem. THROW THIS ENTIRE APP IN THE GARBAGE. Again, I can not stress how terrible the support and functionality are for this, to the extent that I’m taking time to write this extremely negative review instead of working on projects that I need to be completing.
Office-wide use! Love it! If only...
by U2Nighthawk on 2019/08/22 22:48
I’ve got 60 people in my office using this app to upload and track vehicle receipts with the camera phone taking out the Lens app step. It’s worked terrifically and made the whole process a LOT easier! Love that!!! but... I wish there was a way to change the default file save name for those images from “scan from...” to a a personalized name like the tag number for the vehicle so it wouldn’t have to be renamed each time after the fact. It would also be really helpful to be able to more easily save an image to some holding account where it would sit when there isn’t a cell tower available to upload to the OneDrive once we’re back in range of a cell tower! Those two improvements would make this app a complete rockstar for business use in my opinion!
Photos
by Jakyyxe on 2019/06/15 06:01
So if you basically store photos here, wait for a few months and I guarantee some of your photos have been deleted without them notifying you your items have been deleted. I don’t just delete pictures without storing the pictures here in OneDrive. I had a family member that passed recently and I had pictures of us stored in one drive and going back to it, I could not find my pictures. Not in the recycling or in other folders. NO WHERE. And my sister had the same issues. She had pictures of my baby sister when she was younger and we were trying to make a collage for her in school for her project and we could not find the pictures. I know they were on OneDrive because we would go back and relive the memory on here and now our images are gone and we have no way of getting them back. I’m very upset because the pictures mean something to my family and OneDrive just deletes it like nothing.
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!
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.
Overall good but...
by Keith in Tucson on 2021/01/03 23:51
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 🙁
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.
Love Love Love MSOD app ! ! !
by Jennie*o1 on 2018/10/14 18:02
What on earth would I possibly due without my MSOD app? I WOULD be lost! I use it all the time! I own my own business so when i am sending files it makes it easy to convert files to pdf, word, etc.. and is easy to open the document in another app (like PDFfiller if I want to fax the document or something like that.) convenient and easy to use. They offer a ton of support if you need it. I have only two (smallish) complaints: 1.) when i am working on a document that i had uploaded to MSOD, & if i exit and then come back to it later to continue editing, the FONT will change from what i previously picked before-to-HELVITICA font. Then, i have to RE-EDIT the formatting for ALL the different sections that i had put any text in my document. Which is really odd & very annoying! 2.) when i am working on my document it will often just close out & any editing i had done will NOT saved, so if i was writing something and it just closed out, then everything that i had just done, would be LOST! It could be something in my settings for issue #1? But idk. Also my app is up to date. I use a iPad 5th Gen.
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 .
No file extension=Security Risk
by LAX20531 on 2020/06/17 16:14
I use both OneDrive Biz and Personal and we struggle with the use of this product that does not provide the basic functionality its competitors have had for years: 1. Detail view of folders and files by default (or an option to default to that and no keep changing it back) 2. File extensions are missing, they are important, and their absence is a security risk. This dumbing down of IT is tragic. 3. Dates don’t display the year, ever. They don’t make sense either. 4. File properties omits the FULL folder path. It only provides the last folder in the path to which the file resides. Consider this example: 2019\Plan\Expenses\file (no .xlsx) 2020\Plan\Expenses\file (no .xlsx) Because the full path is missing, when searching (Results show “Expenses\file”.) There is no way to identify the correct file without opening them all. Huge oversight. 5. Boolean search: Search is a disaster. Not only is it undocumented, it is unreliable. The same file path issue exists as above. 6. Business users (most) have no use for Photos or photo upload. Put that in a separate app and focus on its development on the consumer side. It provides business with no value. 7. We’re stuck with OneDrive because of its interdependency with O365, but it must be imported.
Great For YouTubers Who Edit On A Different Device!
by PotoesForLife! on 2020/03/11 17:14
Okay, let’s start off with the story. I’m a Roblox youtuber, and recently I had downloaded Roblox on my computer and realized how easy it was to control and film. So now I film on my computer. But it’s hard for me to edit on computer. So I needed to transport my videos onto my iPad, which I’m more comfortable editing on. OneDrive is super simple and easy to use! All I have to do (after the video is recorded and saved) is go to files, and then drag the video into OneDrive! Then after some time, it downloads and shows it on my iPad! It’s super simple to download to your camera roll too, all you have to do is press the three dots and then download! Thank you OneDrive!!
Behind the times. By a lot.
by cajunh2o on 2019/06/02 23:33
Absolutely loved one drive at first. Now? That I decided to try and cut costs I realized how much of a mistake it was. Over 2k pictures of my kids in OneDrive. Can’t move them. A big ward why don’t you have this is a select all feature. Every other major app has it and people in forums have been asking for it for over 3 years now. Still nothing. So spent over an hour swerving each picture individually to try to download back to phone. As soon as I hit download. App crashes. Start over. Suddenly getting errors that I can’t download certain files with no explanation and app crashes again. So now my pictures are being held hostage. I can’t cut the cost because of this. Just want my pictures moved. But Microsoft and their customer service has been zero help. If I could give less than one star I would. (No computer so that’s not an option. App should accommodate any features needed for users regardless of platform)
Cancel Not Responding During Delayed Video Upload Attempt
by Healthy BP on 2020/05/02 16:03
I have very good experience with using the app. Two days ago using my iPhone 6 I tried to upload a video that may have been too long but it’s not letting me cancel the request. Have not been able to upload pictures or videos to the one drive for two days now. May 2, 2020 - additional comments I have had to delete and reload the app several times in order to upload photos from my iPhone 6. Now it is getting to the point that doesn’t work. I use the cloud storage for other reasons but copying over the photos is an important one and I am disappointed it’s not working as well since the software update to Microsoft 365 as compared to how this functioned with the label of Office 365.
Great App but doesn’t work on the IPad Pro
by MarmieMcD on 2018/07/14 02:28
I have an Ipad Pro recently issued new from my employer. I have a Microsoft 365 account through my employer and I’ve had a personal account for years. I’ve used the one drive app as well for years. However now with the 365 account I started to use the One Note app for both personal and business use. I use it across my iPhone, my iPad and my PC. The features of the App work great on my phone and my PC and even my older iPad2 but not my new iPad Pro. I cannot insert a file from OneNote as it doesn’t even show up as a location when I browse?? I’ve used the CHAT HELP on line and they switched over to an expert but then got a message that the business hours were over and I had to call back during business hours but it was 4:30 EST? This would be a great App if it worked with the insert file feature so that I could make up notes and photos and whatever??
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.
Ok, but lacks responsiveness
by r3dsky on 2019/06/18 08:52
I like the way the team behind Onedrive is responding to feedback and there’s definitely a lot of improvement over the years. I really want to love OneDrive with all my heart. I really do! The main reason why I still prefer a very well know competitor product, is the overall responsivness and usability of the app - even more so on desktop. In direct comparison, everything is much more sluggish on desktop, from app opening to sync etc. and sync conflicts happen more often - on Windows!! On a Mac it’s even worse. I use my cloud storage to sync documents on a variety of systems: iOS, MacOs, Windows. As an end user of cloud storage, it doesn’t matter if the iOS app works great, but there are usability issues on other OSes: a unified experience matters. At least make it the best possible experience on your own OS. Pretty please.
Auto camera upload
by Waffles was taken on 2017/11/13 19:23
You apparently can not auto upload pics from the camera roll to onedrive for business. This is stupid. Part of what I do at work is take pictures of random stuff that I need keep in onedrive for Business for things like evidence, etc. Microsoft seems to want me to put these evidence pics into a personal onedrive account...I’d get fired for doing that. Microsoft apparently wants me to get fired for evidence chain of custody/ethics/etc violations. Microsoft, this is not incentive for people to use your products. Microsoft, why do you care if ppl upload their camera roll to onedrive for business? So, I’m supposed to get my boss to give me the approval to pay for Dropbox Business subs for my whole team because it would allow us to work on a platform that would not violate various company policies because it would be done at the department level. Microsoft, this is crazy easy to fix, just allow people to auto upload the camera roll.
Almost perfect
by RobbieGB on 2019/10/05 21:53
There’s a lots to love about this. Yes, more things sync through Dropbox than OneDrive and Apple makes everything Apple go though iCloud easier. But I love Office 365. It’s perfect for my family of 5. We get all the Office apps on all our devices AND each get 1TB of storage. You can have up to 6 family members too. Dropbox is WAY more expensive and you don’t get the apps. I also like OneNote A LOT which you can store on OneDrive. So I’m a Mac user but I’m also a dedicated OneDrive/365 user and will be for as long as Microsoft continues to make good Office apps and OneDrive for a reasonable price. I use OneDrive on my MacBook Pro, iPhone and iPad. The rear of the family also uses it on their computers and iPhones. OneDrive has replaced Dropbox for me!
Love this mail app for work-issue report
by Sickntiredofthis on 2018/02/26 11:15
Have been using this app for accessing work email (exchange server) since last fall. Just like sitting in the office using Outlook on the network. Starting early February, the app began not logging into our mail server successfully even though the correct login info was being provided. We use MDM on our phones for encryption. I could attempt the login numerous times without locking out my network account indicating that Outlook wasn’t actually “knocking” at the n/w door. I had a week or two window of time when the app worked perfectly, then last week, the issue repeated intermittently. Currently it’s working. I’ve also placed a review for MDM. Our IT staff confirms all is and has been good with our exchange server.
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.
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.
They don't care
by BrownSugarBritches on 2017/10/23 14:50
I uploaded nearly 2k pictures. All were easily accessible and available for viewing. One random day 1,600 pics became unavailable. Not able to see them in the app, on the website, the desktop or the laptop. Not able to download and view. Every email I sent was returned with "we think you uploaded them incorrectly", followed by "you're using the old version of the app, you need to update it". Not true. Then it was "log off and log on". For what? And twice they've "escalated" the ticket. NOW, they're just ignoring me. They "escalated" my ticket on July 02, 2017, (for the second time) and they haven't said a word to me or responded to my emails since then. I'm angry but they obviously don't care that I trusted them with my pictures and they lost them. After asking them repeatedly THEY FINALLY RESPONDED LAST WEEK. They said “sorry, seems the files are corrupt, kindly upload them again”. WHATs THE POINT OF LOADING ANYTHING INTO THE CLOUD???
