OneDrive brings a new name and a couple of new features to iOS (pictures)

Microsoft's cloud service (formerly known as SkyDrive) is a solid option for storing files, but doesn't add much to differentiate itself from a crowded category.

View your files

You can browse though your files, create folders, and look at thumbnail previews. You also have the option to view your files in a list.

File management

You can also browse your files in a list. A swipe left on a file name gives the option to delete it. Buttons across the bottom of the app let you sort by backups, recent files, and documents you've shared with others.

Auto backups

The automatic backup feature for photos and videos will be useful, but I would prefer if the app would ask me before uploading.

Sending a link via e-mail

To share a file you can quickly send a link via e-mail, and this is what the e-mail will look like to the recipient.
