I’m looking for an Android app that will automatically sync my photos and videos (taken with my phone’s camera) to my Nextcloud server, without smashing my mobile data limit. That’s basically it, but I can’t stress the automatic part enough — I don’t have the time to manually retry failed downloads, double-check lists of files to see what gets uploaded, etc.
I tried the official Nextcloud app, but it has two major drawbacks. Firstly, even if I tell it to only upload via wifi, it will upload over mobile data. I’m glad I noticed it when I did, because it could have cost me a lot of money. Secondly, it just doesn’t do automatic uploads. 90% of the files it started to sync failed, and that was it. I had to go in to the app and make it try again. No chunked uploads either, so it was starting over every time. So they failed again. And again. And so I gave up.
So is there anything else out there that might do this? I don’t want to stop using Nextcloud on the server, because it’s just so nice to have the gallery, the API for scripting, etc. And since Nextcloud exposes a DAV interface, maybe there’s an app that does this via DAV, so it doesn’t really care whether it’s Nextcloud or not. I don’t care whether it’s instant upload or daily syncing or what, just as long as it’s reliable, automatic, and wifi only.
