Back to owning your stuff..

From data, files, photos, bookmarks, passwords, notes and errrrmmm what else?…Nextcloud gets you away from the big firms and reliance on their processes and ethics and back to your own sovereignty…
And just say you have an old macmini. Install ProxMox (free) then install Nextcloud…boom, you’ve got all your cloud services sitting in your spare room running effortlessly on the very reliable macmini…

Let’s not look at replacing office365 apps (coz you can) …

Good, not great.

This app connects an iOS device with your NextCloud files.
This a good thing. It was free. I like free.

But the App could be better.

A large number of media files causes the media browser to become sluggish and jerky, even on an iPad Pro. Suggests the thumbnails are not being cached and managed well in the app..

Not sure why the media view not using standard iOS UICollectionView. So we see a silly circular scroll bar. Please developers, don’t mess with stuff that is already working fine.

There is a feature to password lock a folder. Presumably for sensitive information. But the media view ignores this and gleefully shows all media, even stuff in the locked folders, making the feature pointless.

Video files don’t seem to download or stream at all, unless marked for offline viewing.

Paging through images by swiping is supported. But if you swipe to an image has not yet been cached, it is presented as an entirely blank screen. No placeholder. Nothing. Just a white void.

There are a couple of odd semantic choices. There are two hamburger menu items. One to control sorting, the other has settings. But is labelled “More”.

Think this app could be good, just needs a bit more work.

Hi, if you want, can you create an issue here:

So close to being a great app

Tried to use Nextcloud to replace Apple for storing my iPhone photos. As much as I wanted this to work, in the end hundreds of photos didn’t show up in the app album which makes it pointless.

The photos were on the server, I had tried rescanning folders, regenerating photo previews, disabling cache in the app and played with all different settings but it was hit or miss which photos would display in the app when viewing the media gallery. Some days I would notice a chunk of photos would be in the media folder, later on in the day they wouldn’t be there and another chunk of photos would appear.

In the end I had to admit defeat and go back to the Apple subscription which works brilliantly but I would of preferred to use Nextcloud
