Some PDFs were showing text boxes filled with the same color as the text when opened in Adobe Reader which made them very hard to read. We've fixed the underlying issue in our PDF editor so now text boxes added in our app will reflect the expected colors.
Voiceover wasn't focusing on the delete dialog when deleting files from the Recycle Bin, this has been fixed.
Some videos would occasionally close during playback with a "Video cannot play" message. This has been fixed.
This wouldn't be possible without your feedback. If you run into any issues, please shake your device and tap "Report a Problem."
Ratings and Reviews
This app is second to none. I use my onedrive for everything from college (now uni) to home files. I have something like 4 years and about 300gb of photos and videos backed up which I can access so easily across any of my devices, no matter the platform. One of the best things about Onedrive is how universally accessible it is, but also how well it works and the fabulous functionality it provides. With the recent update to the application interface, it is really easy and pleasant to use. The development team are truly incredible and they really seem to take on the feedback of their users. The app is regularly updated with USEFUL updates not just the usual “bug fixes” or “performance improvements” like every single other app seems to do.
I have tried using a range of other services such as google drive, ICloud Drive and Dropbox, but onedrive is simply the best in terms of functionality, compatibility and features. For £6.99 per month I get 1tb of storage with full access to the latest Microsoft office applications, which is really handy.
One final thing to mention is that onedrive is a good idea for photos if you have a windows computer, as photos you upload to onedrive will sync to the photos app in windows, meaning you can see them all seamlessly on your computer.
Big thanks to the team who make Onedrive so truly brilliant!
Please fix this one issue!
I really love Onedrive in many ways and I am a paying subscriber. I use it mostly to store all of my photos going back over years and I love so many things about the app. However, there is one issue which is huge for me and I am borderline on switching to another big cloud provider because of it. I checked - they have this feature. I don't want to switch, it's so much work, but this really bugs me. The issue is, for whatever reason some of my older photos (5+ years old) uploaded without the exif data for date created. I don't know why because the correct date shows on the (1yr old WD) hard drive they were uploaded from, via windows 10. I thought ok, they're old photos. The big problem is I can't edit the date the photo was taken on Onedrive. So, very old photos show up in my chronological photo timeline as having been taken this year, because Onedrive assigns their upload date to them. This disorder pains me and makes looking through my photo collection not enjoyable. Please, please add this feature ASAP. I will have to move cloud providers if I can't fix this.
For all I love the simplicity of One Drive. I pay a subscription monthly yet as in previous comments. The app forgets where it is navigating to or asks to open in browser then loops back again to ask to open in browser.
The folder files are always a different look to how they looked on the app And in browser, or if on a pc or iOS device. So then caused a little confusion in where I had saved it too.
Also managed to not save my work when my phone ran out of battery. I tried finding the lost file in last place I used it and the folder I had opened it from, looked through the temp folders etc. By then I had no choice but to sit and redo all the work I had previously completed. Disappointed by some way, I pay a monthly subscription but I think one drive has become too complicated trying to do all things for all apps.
Also I have a personal one drive that I didn’t mean to share with a group Of colleagues which contained all my personal files. So it is far from bomb proof.
Best wishes and hope you can make one drive a stronger stand alone app.
