How can we improve Microsoft SharePoint Apps for iOS?

Allow access to files without opening OneDrive

It is confusing for users to move in and out of SharePoint app and OneDrive. We want our users to have one single place to access all content - there is no need for OneDrive if user is just browsing content on an intranet.

    It is very confusing. Specially in iOS 12, it opens within the app but previous versions, it force opens OneDrive. Is there an ETA on this?

    The SimplySo UI takes care of this issue. Handles SPO and ODFB content in the same UI. Our most hopeless users are even getting a hang of it :)

    Completely agree, what a ridiculous idea and totally pointless and confusing for the end user. Miles apart from the desktop version. We need the same functionality in mobile or whats the point.

    Agree. There too much jumping around from app to app - and theaverage user would not know SP docs are built on onedrive.
    The site should work as it does in a browser in the app. That’s what apps do - they are typically better than the browser experience- this one is not

    Does yours even work for the new Communication Sites? We can open a Communiation Site in the IOS Sharepoint App, but it won't open the document store and gets an error from OneDrive (which doesn't see them anyway).

    Agreed. We have not deployed oneDrive yet to our business but SharePoint is. So this is confusing and likely a blocker to using the sharepoint app.
