OneDrive en Microsoft Previews OneDrive for Business for Mac and iOS <div class="node-body link-body">Microsoft has released preview versions of a new OneDrive for Business for iOS and Mac.</div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> Open In New Window </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> OneDrive Thu, 29 Jan 2015 18:48:00 +0000 49131 at Microsoft Confirms Its Plans for OneDrive <div class="field-deck"> And not just for Windows 10 </div> <div class="node-body article-body">If you're not a fan of how Microsoft has cut the placeholders functionality from OneDrive in Windows 10, today's news won't do much to help. But the company has confirmed that by consolidating how OneDrive device sync works it will also be able to add some crucial missing functionality—including access to OneDrive shared files and OneDrive for Business files—in time for the initial shipping version of Windows 10.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> OneDrive Windows 10 Thu, 08 Jan 2015 16:55:00 +0000 48331 at Here's Where the New OneDrive Strategy Falls Apart <div class="field-deck"> Basically, everywhere </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft's decision to revert OneDrive in Windows 10 to the system used by Windows 7 is a controversial one. On the one hand, the company argues that it needs to make this change so that OneDrive can be more reliable, and can more easily pick up support for shared files and better photo access. But as I'm coming to realize the more I use this system, this change severely cripples OneDrive. And surely there is a happy middle ground to be found here somewhere. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> OneDrive Windows 10 Tue, 16 Dec 2014 17:33:00 +0000 47531 at New OneDrive for Windows Phone Update Strikes a UI Compromise <div class="field-deck"> OneDrive 4.5 </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Back in October, Microsoft issued a major update to OneDrive for Windows Phone that added a flat-new look and feel that was quite reminiscent of OneDrive on rival mobile platforms, particularly Android. This apparently didn't sit very well with Windows Phone fans, so Microsoft has reversed that change, and the new version of the app looks more like it did before the October UI change.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Windows Phone OneDrive Fri, 12 Dec 2014 20:30:00 +0000 47361 at Microsoft Begins Integrating Bing with Office <div class="field-deck"> Baby steps </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft announced today that it has begun integrating its Bing search engine into Office, starting small with just Word Online. But once you see how they're doing so, you're going to wonder how you ever lived without this functionality.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> OneDrive Bing Office Wed, 10 Dec 2014 17:57:00 +0000 47281 at It's Official: Microsoft Buys Acompli <div class="field-deck"> Now port it to Windows </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft confirmed the rumors today and announced that it has purchased Acompli and its excellent Outlook-like mobile clients for Android and iOS. And as you might expect, Microsoft will "build on the app's success and bring it together with work currently in progress by the Outlook team." </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Office 365 Android OneDrive Cloud iOS Mobile Mon, 01 Dec 2014 16:43:00 +0000 46921 at This is Why Microsoft Wants Acompli <div class="field-deck"> Fait Acompli? </div> <div class="node-body article-body">I didn't write at all yesterday, on Thanksgiving, which is actually pretty unusual. But I did spend much of the day testing a mobile app called Acompli on iPhone, iPad and Android. Microsoft has apparently purchased this company and its app, though that hasn't officially been announced yet. And I can see why they're interested: Acompli is nothing less than Outlook for Android and iOS, and an answer to the mess Microsoft has created on those platforms.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Office 365 OneDrive Cloud Fri, 28 Nov 2014 14:00:00 +0000 46831 at Microsoft Adds Skype Chat to Office Online <div class="field-deck"> Hey, you got your Skype in my web browser </div> <div class="node-body article-body">If you use or OneDrive, you have probably noticed that you can initiate Skype chats from their web-based UIs. Well, now that capability is coming to some of Office Online—the web-based versions of Microsoft's popular Office applications—too.

I was originally going to discuss my experience pumping tons of document archives into OneDrive over the past ten days or so. But let's take a quick side-trip instead and discuss a related topic that isn't impacted at all by Microsoft's announced OneDrive changes.
