    Hi, currently I'm using Windows Phone 8.1 (Lumia930), which I think is a very good OS. But due to the lack of certain apps that aren't available on WP I would like to try to go for an Android device next time. But one of my main question is:
    How about Onedrive? Onedrive (personal and business) is my main (and only) cloud storage service. I really love the service. Also I'm using a SurfacePro3 for business, so I'm pretty embedded into the Windows system (Onedrive, Office365, ...)

    What I'm asking is whether it's possible to use Onedrive as the main and only cloud storage service on Android? I don't want Google Docs, Google Drive, Gmail, ...

    For instance when I want to make a Flipagram and want to select certain photos I should be able, beside my camera roll, to go into Onedrive to select photos. On iOS that's not possible, so I have to copy/paste those pictures towards my camera roll. That's not a good option.
    Same if I want to send an email and want to attach a file or picture into it, I need to be able to select Onedrive files.
    Another one: can I automatically back up and sync my Android device's camera roll to my Pictures folder on Onedrive? ....

    Anyone can help me with this?

    Thank a lot, from an Android newbie

    Hi there,

    You can certainly do all those things on Android and OneDrive! However, I'm not sure about the Flipagram since I don't use that app, but at least on Instagram you can select file directly from Dropbox or OneDrive.

    Welcome to Android Central! As SpookDroid mentioned above, you can certainly use OneDrive as your main cloud drive. You could disable Google Drive so that it isn't even an option. But whether or not you can access photos from the OneDrive cloud is going to depend on the app in question. For example, on Facebook, you can only select photos that are on the Camera Roll--there's no option to select photos from Google+ or Google Drive, so I would also guess you couldn't use OneDrive either. You could email the Flipagram developers to see if they support OneDrive: support@flipagram.com

    From the OneDrive app description, it looks like they have an automatic photo backup feature, but I don't see anything about automatic backup of other files: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...skydrive&hl=en

    Ok thanks a lot for the replies.
    The Flipagram case was just an example. You're right I might check out the app's details to see if they got Onedrive access.
