Welcome to the ownCloud iOS app – Add an ownCloud server, and have your private file sync and share cloud up and running in no time.
Do you need private file sync and share software? Then good news, because the ownCloud iOS App enables you to connect iOS devices to a private ownCloud server running in your data center. ownCloud is open source file sync and share software for everyone from individuals operating the free ownCloud server, to large enterprises and service providers operating under ownCloud Enterprise subscriptions.
ownCloud provides a safe, secure and compliant file sync and share solution – on servers you control.
With the ownCloud iOS App you can browse all of your ownCloud synced files, create and edit new files, share these files and folders with co-workers, and keep the contents of those folders in sync across all of your devices. Simply copy a file into a directory on your server and ownCloud does the rest.
Whether using a mobile device, a desktop, or the web client, ownCloud provides the ability to put the right files in the right hands at the right time on any device in one simple-to-use, secure, private and controlled solution. After all, with ownCloud, it’s Your Cloud, Your Data, Your Way.

Good start but needs some work
Auto upload is the feature I want the most. It works sometimes but not consistently. I have to keep killing the app and restarting to to kick off the upload. If auto upload doesn't work it is impossible to see what files you have already uploaded because the display is truncated. So then selecting all will work because it will throw errors when there is a conflict, but the errors are notifications that show up on the badge count and you have to swipe each one individually to dismiss.
The photo browsing is also nowhere near what Dropbox and carousel offer. It works, but is really slow and doesn't seem to prefetch anything so you have to wait for each image to download. It would be nice to at least have a thumbnail generated to get a rough idea before clicking through to load it.
Absolute basic functionality works and is effective, it just needs quite a bit of refinement.
This mobile app is crippling OC’s potential
Seriously. I’m looking for a new solution for my cloud storage backend, actively seeking alternatives. I have used OwnCloud and this app for a long time now and the app has barely evolved at all... I need a basic editor, not much but slightly better than the current bare-bones dialog box you can type in now. That’s just pathetic. Calling that an editor is a stretch anyways, because I can’t even see how to take existing files and edit them, only new text files. What a joke. I love OC on my server and desktop machines, but this iOS app is a joke, and it’s sad really because they should realize these days that mobile is more important and deserving of a real app if they want anyone to take OC seriously! This ship is going down unless they hire some real iOS programmers ASAP!

Please do not use this with critical data, it's not tested yet.
No Search Functionality
After looking to get off google drive, I have transitioned all my file storage to OwnCloud. After being satisfied with the web interface, I decided to fork over the money for the app, assuming the stock features would be in the app as well.
I was wrong
Global, or even folder level search is missing. Upon finding the TestFlight version, I am finding the same
It is extremely disappointing to see such a basic feature missing from this software, especially since it exists on the desktop interface. I am forced to use the mobile web interface, which is awfully claustrophobic to use.

Hello, thank you for your rating. We take your opinion very seriously. We have recently launched a search API on the server to also make a search on the server through the app. This search and many more features come in the new app. A folder search is already possible there. You said you already use the Alpha version of the Testflight program?
