The official OneDrive apps for iOS and Android devices both updated today with a variety of fixes for relatively big bugs that had been affecting some users.

The Android app update mainly fixes one bug that was preventing people from signing in an using it but it also improved the app’s speed as well.

Here’s the release notes for the OneDrive Android app update:

  • Fixed a bug that was making it difficult to sign in, made a few things a bit faster, and polished up a few surfaces. We also promise that from now on these notes will reflect the interesting and important improvements we are delivering to YOU.

The iOS app update fixes three main bugs that were affecting the sharing of files, frequent app crashes, and link descriptions not appearing properly in iOS 13.

Here’s the full release notes for the iOS OneDrive app update:

  • We fixed an issue with our Share Extension in some apps where the signed in accounts weren’t displaying. This has been fixed and you should once again be able to save files to OneDrive from these apps using the Share Extension.
  • We fixed an issue causing the app to consistently crash for some users. While a reinstall fixes this issue, we’ve also cleaned this up in this version and the app should be running smoothly once again.
  • We fixed an issue causing the sharing link description to hide for iOS 13 users. We’re happy to report that the link hint has since gotten over its stage fright and should one again be displayed for all users.
