Best Windows 8 Apps
22 January 2015
It's clear MS has done something to this app or the 8.1 OS in the last week or so because this app no longer works. When launched, you get the splash screen, then an immediate crash, rendering this 100% useless. Unfortunately, installing the actual Software (not Metro App) from a 365 account yields no better result. The software installs but will not show as a folder in Explorer, meaning you cannot save to it (thus why I came back to the Metro App). But with this now not working, I'm forced to a web browser. I have seen posts in MS forums about this, and all of them have no answer. Come on MS -- this is YOUR app on YOUR platform. How about some testing first, and then a resolution when it's brought to your attention that it is no longer working?

It allows for access to files but is very limited, not having something as basic as moving items to other folders or within folders.
How about adding this basic function, ?

Great app for managing my work documents :) I love being able to quickly and easily access my work documents from SkyDrive Pro without having to go to the web, and the MRU and sharing features are cool too!

Great app - does the job, is quick and gets out of the way. Note that this will only work if you have an Office 365 account. For the consumer version, refer to the Skydrive app

This program is a piece off crap. The link to sync a large database will frequently break. The tech support is weak and the SharePoint tech support will not make themselves available to help. If you're database is 20 GB, it takes up 40 or more GB on your drive when you add the cache files.
The new repair feature just archives your old files and creates a new sync. So a 20 GB database that was taking up 40 BG now takes up 60 GB. Given that the sync gets corrupt every few days, imagine how much space it takes up after being corrupted over the course of a few weeks!!!
Microsoft has given us a PIECE OF CRAP.

Won't load at all even for setup. Crashes immediately.

conceptual ide is great, just make it work. Can't create folders or upload files.
Another flop, fix it, I like the idea.

Nice to have it on my Surface RT here at school.

One thing that has been missing was quick and snappy access to my SharePoint documents on my surface, this certainly fits the bill!
The recent view is a nice touch, too. Makes it easy to pick up where I left off without digging through all of my documents again.
Team sites would be an awesome addition, but for my day-to-day use, most of my work is done in SkyDrive Pro since it is so convenient- so I don't miss it too much :-)

I have a .Estate rather than a .com email for my business and I am not able to either use my windows phone or surface2 OneDrive App because it doesn't accept anything other than a .com please fix, since more and more domains are being made.
Great little app to get easy access to your SkyDrive Pro files on Office 365. Much faster and easier to use than the web browser.
I wish you could also get access to the team sites on SharePoint with this app. But otherwise, love it!

App no longer opens. Uninstalled/reinstalled numerous times. Simply will not work.

Great app for sharing files
28 January 2015
This app won't even open. And, because this is a Microsoft product, it is even more disappointing. And, the fact that I need this to open my office365 account makes it a nuisance.

This app is useless as it only allows me to sync to a single my-sharepoint.com account for use in SkyDrive Pro. Where is the functionality to add multiple tenant accounts as well as Site Collection SharePoint libraries for use offline? Until multiple account support is added, I will not be using this app.

Completely useless. The app won't let me sign into my onedrive through my school email account. No idea how the app works because I cannot even sign in.

Biggest weakness is that it does not provide "online only" access to files and folders stored in the cloud (like with One Drive personal). Therefore, if you sync with a notebook, or my case a Surface Pro 3, it will immediately put all those files and folders on your local hard drive using precious storage. You also can not see thumb nail images of either PDF or graphics files, only icons. Makes it tough findig that one document or photo you're searching for. I suggest you use One Drive personal if you have a choice.

I was expecting something similar to the desktop sync app, but this is dreadfully lacking in features.
Outside of see a list of files/folders on ODB, don't see an offline/online capability, editing files doesn't auto sync, downloading files and editing them doesn't sync back.
Absolutely horrible app!

I've used SharePoint before at a larger company but just need basic file sharing with local storage, but can't even achieve that. The folder doesn't show up in my favorites and the files are only available when I'm online - it's worse than the free Onedrive app.
6 June 2014
Can you please make the ability to take a folder offline like the personal one drive app? As we use Surface RT's a bit at work it is necessary to keep some folders offline when doing customers meetings and no WiFi is present.
3 January 2014
Not sure how much use this is for collaboration without being able to connect this to our main SharePoint.Com documents. I seem to be only able to access my-SharePoint.Com documents
28 June 2013
Very good app. Do what is expected to do. Just would like to see a preview of the files available.
31 March 2015
it's great already. It's even better on mobile device. But I think the tablet version should be better. For example, why doesn't it have support for sharepoint libraries? (since in Win RT we can't have exe installs) and why can't we have offline access to files? These two things are really a necessity for this app to work even better..

Just downloaded and will not open. Crashes every time. Can't even sign in.

Microsoft is incapable of developing a reliable and trustworthy sync engine for their lousy 5000/20,000 file limit online storage services. I'm constantly getting errors opening files from sync folder that the file has changed and a newer version is available when it's NOT a newer version AT ALL and if you listen to these blatantly wrong dialogs suggesting a file is newer you WILL lose data. CHECK YOUR FILES PEOPLE before accepting Microsoft's word. The sync engine is wrong. Maybe Microsoft should consult Google or DropBox or even Apple (who uses Azure for iCloud) on how to accurately sync files.

Unlike one of the reviews says, you can move files back and forth, and you can upload files. The only annoying bug I have found yet is if you try to upload a full folder, it will give an error message and say you don't have enough space. However, this is just a glitch. You have to manually create a new folder, and upload the files one-by-one, with enough space

This app needs to have all the functionality of the OneDrive for personal use app and PLEASE add a way to access shared sites or documents.

Making this the default save location is not intuitive.
6 March 2014
Office overreach, should not be on this phablet.
No uninstall, does not meet Microsoft minimum specs for developers.
Is this the new Microsoft?
8 January 2014
I would mark this app as great, if only it has the ability to take files offline.
