OneDrive on Windows Phone

Microsoft has big plans for its OneDrive cloud service, and this week they showed off a roadmap of upcoming features and improvements as part of its Ignite IT conference in Chicago. One of those additions is the planned launch of a universal OneDrive app for Windows 10 sometime in the fourth quarter of 2015.

That means Microsoft plans to launch the OneDrive universal app sometime after Windows 10 reaches its RTM stage, which is expected this summer. The roadmap also says the app will include support for read-only offline files.

In the current quarter, Microsoft plans to add a new PDF experience for its Android and iOS OneDrive apps. In the third quarter, Microsoft will release a preview version of its next-generation sync client for PC and Mac users, and that will become generally available in the fourth quarter.

There are a number of new OneDrive features that are in the works but don't have a release timeframe yet. They include support for offline mobile folders and editing, along with PDF annotation support for iOS and Android users.
