Microsoft today announced the release of the new OneDrive API, which allows developers to integrate OneDrive into their apps to store and manage user data across all major platforms, including Windows, the web, iOS, and Android. Microsoft is already using this new APIs in all their internal apps. Whenever, they develop a new API for using it internally, it will be made available to other developers too.
It provides better speed and functionality, with new features including:
- the ability to retrieve new changes to files and folders to efficiently keep a large set of files in sync with minimal calls
- resumable uploads of files up to 10 GB via file-fragment uploading for working with rich content, like HD videos
- customizable file thumbnail images for delivering a more integrated experience across your app and OneDrive
