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
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
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
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.
