Developers: Microsoft Releases OneDrive File Picker SDK For Android

OneDrive Android File Picker

One of the most common things users perform on cloud storage services is to access the files. If a developer wants to allow an user to select a file from his cloud storage service, he needs to write a file picker for that storage service using their SDK. OneDrive today released a SDK to make the life of Android developers easy for implementing OneDrive file picker in their apps. With the Android open picker, you can get started opening files in minutes instead of days. The picker lets you get links to download file content directly or view links that are great for sharing, as well as a set of thumbnails for image files.

To get started, download the SDK (or view on GitHub) and  add a couple lines of code to your Android app. You now have the native OneDrive Android experience for opening files ready to go and billions of files in OneDrive and OneDrive for Business at your fingertips.  No need to handle OAuth, no need to implement file hierarchy traversal and your own UI.

The OneDrive picker for Android also works on Ice Cream Sandwich and beyond—so  your users will have the same great file opening experience, whatever their flavor of Android.
