Jason Moore, a Group Program Manager for OneDrive at Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) announced today, on Microsoft’s official blog, about recent OneDrive updates for mobile apps.
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s vision for OneDrive, its cloud storage service, is to “be the one place for everything in your work and life”. The Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s service offers the ability to view both professional and private files, from anywhere around the world, and it is evolving continuously through updates. OneDrive updates are being separately developed for Android, iOS and Windows Phone 8.1, and the latest updates brought access and management for work files for Android, search box and All photo view app for iOS and bug fixes and recycle bin access for Windows Phone 8.1 users.
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s Android update creates a single and unified OneDrive, which allows users to store and share files in the cloud both at work and at home. The single app enables the users now to always be with the files that matter to them, while keeping private and work spheres separated, eliminating thus the possibility of uploading private photos to work accounts. Security is also enhanced by the capability to create a four-digit PIN code, which limits access to the app and users files. Android users can now also open OneDrive files directly in other apps.
OneDrive for iOS app update brings a search box that appears after a swipe down in the app, enabling speedy location of specific files or folders, as well as the All Photos view, which groups together and organizes all photos chronologically. Windows iPhone users will be happy to hear that the new wave of updates brought fixes to many bugs, and Recycle Bin access for restoring accidentally deleted files and folders.
