OneDrive is the one place for everything in your life. It gives you free online storage for all your personal files, so you can access them from your Mac and any other devices you use – iPhone, iPad, PC, Windows Phone or Android. 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/university. The OneDrive app for Mac makes it easy to work with your OneDrive files on your Mac:
•Access your OneDrive files directly from the Finder, including attachments that you’ve saved to OneDrive from Outlook.com, and documents and spreadsheets that you’ve created from Office Online.
•Work with your OneDrive files even when you’re offline. Your changes will sync automatically the next time you’re online.
•Choose the folders in your OneDrive that you want to sync on your Mac.
•Add several files or folders to OneDrive at a time by dragging them to the OneDrive folder. By putting your files in OneDrive, you can access them from anywhere and have a backup in case something happens to your computer.
•Easily open, edit and create docs and other files in OneDrive from applications such as Word or Excel.
Fixed sync reliability bugs.
Improved application reliability.

Good Job Microsoft - Now there is a single drive to create MS Office Documents on my Windows 8.1 Machine and have desktop access to those files on my MacBook Pro. Seamless workflow. Kudos goes to Microsoft and Apple for creating a truly cross compatible workflow for storage. I’ve never used Dropbpx and I have no plans to start using that application. Between Google Drive, Box, iCloud, Lacie Waulu, and now One Drive i have no worries about having my files off of my computer in the event my computer fails for whatever reason and I need to recover important documents.
Causes Mac Keyboard to Lock Up - I have been using OneDrive since it was called SkyDrive to sync personal files. With this version, I am also syncing files with OneDrive for Business, and would like to rely on it for work files. However, this version is very unreliable, because it locks up from time to time unpredictably. The clear sign that OneDrive has hung is that, if you move the cursor over the OneDrive icon on the right side of the menu bar, the cursor turns to the rainbow beachball. When OneDrive hangs, the keyboard no longer responds in any application (or the Finder). I can still use the mouse/trackpad and click, but I can’t type anything. It took me a long time to figure out that it was OneDrive that does this, but it is confirmed on a Microsoft support form as an open issue in Office 365. Their suggested work around is to: (1) kill OneDrive in Activity Monitor and (2) remove OneDrive from System Preferences -> Users & Groups -> Login Items. In other words, OneDrive is currently completely useless for automatic file sync. Worse, it will make your system unusable. And Microsoft suggests that you disable it. I hope they fix this soon because if/when it works, OneDrive for Business is very useful. Unitl then? Do not install.

Sync files accross Windows and Apple world - Great alternative to iCloud for Office 365 users and OneDrive 1TB… using it @work and @home both on PC, MAC and iOS devices all my files are in-sync and one click/touch away, loving it…
Cross-platform file transfer is finally a breeze. - Excellent app. Thanks to Microsoft, it works cross-platform with my eclectic mix of computing devices. I have it istalled on iPhone, iPad, MacBook Pro, Linux, Windows 10, and my old Nokia's 1520 22MP camera phone. Used to rely on Flashdrives and removable media for this level of compatibility. Only complaint is that it can be slow and somewhat unreliable if you rely on slow internet like a DSL connection. Service is free with a copy of Office 365; Office 365 for Home also includes 1TB of cloud storage. At Microsoft’s current price of Office 365, ($99 covers 5 desktop computers, macs and iPads) it’s like getting 1TB of storage and the licesne for Office (5 devices) is tossed in.
App never opens or uploads - I downloaded this so i could move my mom’s pictures from her phone and save them somewhere else. The app doesnt want to open. I restarted my computer a few times and its still the same thing. Nothing from the phone gets uploaded either. Whatever is already there doesnt move, and i canr add anymore photos
Can we have this banned from the Apple Store? - Can we please have this app removed from the Store? It seems like Microsoft is not interested to update it to accept a case-sensitive filesystem, which a lot of MAC users have. According to Douglas Pearce, the Group Program Manager Microsoft’s response on the 11th of January 2017, they will not get to it in the near future. We are almost a year later, and yet no update, although other cloud providers could find the time to update their apps, it is just Microsoft do not really care about you, should you run anything else than Windows. But Microsoft is aware of the fact, that once you moved your data and email to their cloud, you are basically stuck as you cannot get it out. A few have tried in the past. Yet they don’t even have the decency to mention it on their website, before you sign on.
Application Won’t Launch - Been using OneDrive for several years. Recently, and suddenly, the application won’t launch. I deleted my copy of the application, and downloaded a new copy of the app from the Apple App Store Unfortunately, I got the same result; the application will not launch. I now find that I can’t access the numerous files I have in OneDrive’s cloud.
