Name display order

This allows you to change how the names of people are sorted. When you change this option, the information is re-sorted immediately.

Manage OneDrive downloads

This allows you to control whether or not downloads can take place on a network connection that charges for data. Setting this to Prevent avoids the possibility of a high data bill and requires you to use a network connection that doesn’t charge for data, such as Wi-Fi.

Store OneDrive content

This allows you to control whether or not the app stores copies of photos downloaded from OneDrive on the device. Storing copies saves the app from downloading images every time they are required, but it does require additional storage space on the device.

You can control where these copies are stored on your device by setting the first media location on the Manage media page in the app.

The crash data is used to improve the product. Please see the Privacy policy for more information about how this is used. This option and the associated feature is not present in all versions of the app.
