Do More On Your Phone with the Updated OneDrive App

Microsoft recently updated the OneDrive app for iOS and Android, touting the fact that said app “will help you do more from your phone and make it easier to get your photos (and videos) into OneDrive.”

I remind you that the OneDrive team recently increased the amount of cloud storage space you get for free and dropped the prices for the paid storage plans.


Earlier this week Microsoft updated its OneDrive app for iOS and Android-powered smartphones. Let’s take a quick look at what the updated app has to offer.

Starting with Apple’s iOS, the updated OneDrive app comes with several bug fixes and performance improvements. Uploads are now more reliable, meaning you will be presented with fewer notifications. Camera backup jobs can now run in the background. Documents open directly in Office Mobile, meaning it is easier to work with documents.

OneDrive for iOS is available for free on Apple’s App Store.

Moving on to Google’s Android, the updated OneDrive app comes with a new default behavior: it automatically uploads videos to OneDrive. On top of that, the updated OneDrive app comes with an in-app navigation drawer for switching between pivots and with a new, dedicated search button that will help you quickly find the files you need.

OneDrive of Android is available for free on Google’s Play Store.

In related news, I remind you that the amount of cloud storage space you get from OneDrive has gone up – 15GB instead of 7GB are offered for the great price of free. You can end up with as much as 23GB of space: 15GB for free, 3GB for activating camera roll backup, and 5GB for referring friends.

I also remind you that the prices for paid OneDrive plans have dropped: $1.99 instead of $7.49 for 100GB of OneDrive cloud storage and $3.99 instead of $11.49 for 200GB of OneDrive cloud storage.
