SkyDrive or OneDrive?

Some screenshots in this tutorial may show SkyDrive rather than OneDrive, and that's OK because SkyDrive is the older name for OneDrive.

Once you add a place such as your OneDrive account to the Open tab within Office Mobile for iPhone, you can normally open your files off your OneDrive account as easily as you would open any local file. But there's a caveat—you need to be connected online all the time for this to work.

Follow these steps to open new and recent files in Office Mobile for iPhone:

  1. Assuming you are signed in via your Office 365 account, click the Open tab to see a list of places available to you, as shown in Figure 1, below. Select a place from the list to sign in.
  2. Your SkyDrive account is now accessible
    Figure 1: Choose a place from where you want to open files
  3. If you haven't signed into this place from your device for a long time, you may be asked to provide login credentials again. You'll then see your folders and files, as shown in Figure 2, below. Thereafter, browse folders and tap a file to select.
  4. Select a folder or file to open

  5. You might see a Connecting message, as shown in Figure 3, below.
  6. Connecting to open your file

  7. Next, your file will open, as shown in Figure 4, below.
  8. Yes, this is PowerPoint
