Microsoft OneDrive for iOS

The Good Microsoft OneDrive for iOS has a sleek interface for browsing your files and offers tight integration for Microsoft Office subscribers.

The Bad There is no password protection in the app. Photo backup features are automatic and don't ask permission.

The Bottom Line OneDrive is a solid cloud storage option that's a must for Office users, but it doesn't offer many extra features that distinguish it from its competitors.
