Microsoft's recently renamed OneDrive cloud storage platform doesn't get as much love as Dropbox, but it's a solid system that's built right into Windows. The Android app has been getting some attention as of late, and the most recent update seems to have finally made it a capable cloud file manager.

Here's the changelog for version 2.5, and yes, apparently these features were missing until now.

  • Share files by inviting people, sending a link, or sending files to another app
  • Select multiple files to download
  • Move files and folders
  • Sort files and folders
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements

It's not only easier to find files now with sorting, but you can move and share them. This is some basic stuff that I'm a little surprised Microsoft didn't include before this update, but at least it's here now. Maybe it's time to give SkyDrive OneDrive another look.

    I can't believe it still doesn't have search. Guess I'll have to stick to third-party clients.
