Hey,
I have this office 365 sharepoint site with a document Library.
I need to access the sharepoint document Library from an Ipad and iphone
On Iphone it works well with the "Microsoft Office Moblie" app.
But this app is not available for Ipad yet, only "OneDrive for Business".
When connecting to OneDrive it connects to https://xxxx-my.sharepoint..com
which is the users private Onedrive. Even if I type the sharepoint intranet URL under "Advanced" it still goes directly to the  https://xxxx-my.sharepoint.com.  it does not show the document from the sharepoint document Library.  
Am i doing something wrong here? or does onedrive for ipad not support sharepoint document Library.

I dont use iDevices, so I'm not sure if there is a separate app for iPads, but a quick search indeed confirms your findings that you can only sync a personal library.

You can still use the device browser with mobile view to access document libraries. Actually, on iPad you should have better experience using the normal view, due to the bigger screen.

Jep,  you are right.   The only way is through Word or Excel App. Or via the browser. Hope ms Will change this.  way to heavy browsing documents from Word and Excel App.
