OneDrive - Cloud storage for files & photos
By Microsoft Corporation
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
OneDrive is the one place for everything in your work and personal life. It gives you free online storage for all your personal files so you can get to them from your iOS device, computer (PC or Mac), and any other devices you use. With OneDrive for Business, you also get storage for your work files so you can share and collaborate on them with other people at your work or school. The OneDrive app for iOS lets you easily work with your personal and work files when you’re on the go:
• Browse all your OneDrive files and files shared with you.
• Automatically upload photos and videos to your personal OneDrive account using Camera backup.
• Share your files.
• Move, delete, and rename files, and create new folders.
• Open your OneDrive files in other apps, including Office apps.
• Quickly get to documents you've recently opened.
• Search for your files and folders.
Note: For you to sign in to OneDrive for Business, your organization needs to have a qualifying SharePoint Online or Office 365 business subscription plan. You can't sign in with an account from an on-premises directory.
What's New in Version 5.3
If you have a new Apple Watch, you can enjoy your OneDrive photos right from your wrist!
• View your most recent photos and delete photos you don't want to keep
• Find photos by tag

• Print your PDFs directly from your iPhone or iPad
• Search for text within PDFs
• Swipe from page to page
Love the app opens all files I need for quick lookup. This app works better than the individual excel word or PowerPoint app. Everything in one place. Works well with iOS 8+ The background upload doesn't work in the background.

Upload in background still doesn't work. I have to open app and leave app open. It also requires my gps is running all the time, which kills battery life and heats up my phone. Half the time I can open the excel documents successfully the other half the time it says certificate failure and I have to open the document in another means. I am always hopeful for Microsoft but if it doesn't work on a personal level what business is going to want this crap for running operations.
Lacks basic functions
This should be designed as a basic file manager for your OneDrive files available via your iPad, but it won't let you complete many basic functions that obviously should be necessary for any such app. For example, it will not allow you to copy a file from one folder to another. It will move a file, but not create an additional copy in a new place. It will also not let you email more than one file. Sometimes you just need to email two files to someone, but it will only let you send a share link. One file you can email. These sort of obvious omissions are part of what keeps OneDrive second-tier to the competition. I really want to use OneDrive as my main storage area for my docs, but these kinds of problems make it impractical.
Address the inconsistency and bugs
I have just about had it with this app. OneDrive is the only backup app that I use, since the days it was still known as SkyDrive. Since the OneDrive update, the app is going downhill and making me consider similar, more reliable apps.
My main gripe with this app is that it is way too inconsistent. Every time I open the app to have my photos sync up, only 70% of my latest pictures are saved. I have to manually upload missed filed multiple times--a lot of the time, even that doesn't work. This happens for both screenshots, saved pictures sent to me or from the web, and pictures I take.
The problem happens often, especially when 10 or more pictures need to be uploaded. In addition, some pictures get lost in my account because of a file naming issue with OneDrive. The picture I saved is recent but is saved next to old photos in my account. Until the inconsistency is addressed, I cannot say I can recommend OneDrive for now. I still use it, but I am getting extremely frustrated with this app.
PLEASE NOTE: Make sure your files really were saved to OneDrive by checking your account on a desktop/laptop.
