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.

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.

Doesn’t blow my skirt up. - OneDrive is a solid 3 star app, but needs some work. Gripe 1: The reporting function. OneDrive is supposed to let me know everytime a file has been worked on by someone on my shared list. This happens 30-40% of the time — maybe. If I had known it was that unreliable, I would have probably gone another direction. Gripe 2: There needs to be an easy way to pick and choose what files and folders are synced to another computer without fear of losing the data on the original computer after it syncs. Gripe 3: It would be nice if OneDrive would not fail to sync files with particular characters in them — e.g. > < \ / ( ) @ etc. Cumbersome.
Works fairly well - The app works fairly well. The only thing that I don’t like is that it needs to be prompted to update. When I add files on my work computer and come home to my Mac, I need to open the on drive app and prompt it to update. It would be nice if it happened automatically. Other than that it works well. I’ve been using it regularly for over a year now.
Not stabile - Sometimes not stable
Stable and useful but needs work - It’s stable, and it syncs well enough, most of the time, but it’s less than completly intuitive and could be more visually appealing.
Works better on the Mac than it does in Windows - On Windows machines, OneDrive “sometimes” sync and “sometimes” does not in a quick fashion. On the Mac, when you copy something into the OneDrive folder, it gets synced right away. The same goes for the iOS version as well. What is up with that, Microsoft?
