        Ive just spent the last couple of hours setting the dam thing up,and 'm now realising that you cant save files to your phone, from onedrive. UTTERLY USELESS

        This is very important, but as alternative to saving SkyDrive files to "phone places", allow SkyDrive app to selectively cache files to phone's physical memory, while keeping it in the "SkyDrive" places. This will allow us to work with SkyDrive files while offline, but maintain the integrity of the SkyDrive file and document structure. Just as the way mail app allows selective syncing and unsyncing of folders, we should be able to "sync file" and "stop syncing file" at will, to use or free-up local storage as needed.

        Please enable this: deleting/moving from Win 7 folder will delete/move it also from Windows 8 phone

        I can't access skydrive in the office (company security protocol) and I know I have a document in Skydrive that I want to use. I can access it on my WP* Lumia 920, I can't email the stupid document because the email app can only attached Photos (another stupid limitation) and I can't download the file from skydrive to my phone memory so that I can access it on my computer? What gives? I'm on GDR3 and this is still not implemented? Come on Microsoft. Get it together!

        By far the most negligent feature (or lack there of) of any phone operating system I've ever seen. Why wouldn't they (Ms) implement such an obvious and useful function? If we own a windows phone with office, we should be able to save files from SkyDrive to phones memory. Something soo big could not have been an oversight. It was by design for "security" reasons. I had enough of the 3rd party limitations and restrictions at the expense of the consumer. Loosen up Microsoft. My Samsung galaxy has NO problem downloading.pdf, or any word document to my Samsungs core memory. This is frustrating. Potential deal breaker. P.s.
        ... Microsoft just finalized the purchase of Nokia for $7bil. With that said, I expect a native (Ms) root/ SkyDrive manager on the next update.

        With microSD card support in windows 8 phones (my samsung ACTIV s) it makes sense to allow skydrive to function the same as the desktop app. Allow the user to specify what folders to sync.

        its useless skydrive integration unless to download to phone from skydrive.

        Please update it soon.

        Why can't files be transferred from skydrive to phone memory? What a worthless cloud implementation.

        inconsistent that you can delete a photo from the thumbnails screen, but cant when you are viewing a photo from the "..." menu.
