    You can get it from the App Store. It may be just a question of redownloading it if it was on your iPad3.

    There are three things required for a share extention to show up.

    • The app developer adds one to their app (and you have that app installed)
    • You've turned it on using the (...) More option in the share sheet.
    • The file or data type is compatible with the app (according to what the developer listed)

    Assuming you've taken care of the first two, the OneDrive app will still not appear for what you are doing. Safari's data type when sharing a website is a URL (site link). OneDrive is for saving files, and a URL is content, not a file.

    If you look at all the apps showing in your share sheet, you're going to see that they are all apps that you save or use content in (text mostly). The only exception is the iBooks app, and it specifically states it is going to convert the site to a PDF before saving. There is no reason that OneDrive couldn't do that, except Microsoft did not include that ability.

    All is not lost. You can still use a third party app like PDF Converter by Readdle to convert the web page to PDF, and then save that to OneDrive. The OneDrive app does show up in PDF Converter's share sheet. I'm sure there are other, similar apps.

    Note: PDF Converter will not convert secure sites, like bank sites. Those pages will fail to authenticate when it attempts to load and convert them.

    Worst case, if you can get all the data you want from the site onto one screen, you can take a screenshot. You can save it to OneDrive from the Photos app.

    Or you could save the URL to the Microsoft OneNote app. That gets saved to OneDrive as well, though in a format that only OneNote can read.

    Besides showing you a web page, Safari can also download and dispaly many file types, including PDFs and most image formats. If a file is displayed then the Open In options will appear. You have to use the Open In, because the share extention at the top of Safair's page will (still) only share the URL to the file.

    You can usually tell when a file is displayed. If you tap in the center of the screen you'll see Open In options at the top left and right of the page. If the file can't not be displayed you'll get an icon for the file and Open In options.

    Images can be an exception. Often the only choice you get with them is Save Image; by tap/holding the image. These will be saved in the Photos app (from there you can easily move/copy them to other apps.)

    Playing around I see iOS 10 has change out the generic Open In option at the top left with a More. . . Option. It does the same thing; opens the share sheet.
