“Request account at startup” option

If you switch between accounts often, you can choose the starter account you want when you open your Nextcloud app. Enable this feature if you’re logged in to multiple accounts and find this useful or disable it if not.

ALIAS for your different accounts

If you have multiple Nextcloud accounts signed up on your mobile app, you can assign an allias to each of them to be better distinguished from one another, like Home for your personal account, School, Work for your work account etc.

The “Rename” function comes with an improved view
