Nextcloud app & Nextcloud android app

Dear all, just to be sure about my understanding concerning Nextcloud Android app :

  1. This app only show files (music, movie, pictures, and various extensions) ?
  2. This app doesn’t allow to use mails, passman, contacts, chat, etc. ?
  3. If possible, how can I access to passman, mails, and chat through this app ?

Thank you very much

Correct! Access to the services you request isn’t currently possible.

Thank you very much for your feedback. Before to close this topic, please, could you confirm that such services are planned for a next Nextcloud Android app version ?
Thank you again.

No this is currently not planned.
mails: nextcloud is no mail server, but acts also only as a mail client, so better use a decent mail client on android directly
passman: no idea :wink: I use keepass which uses the synced file via this app
contacts: davdroid; there is an integration for easier setup
chat: not yet planned


We are now some months further, maybe passman could be a nice addon to the android client?
I also use keypass on my mobile but must say that the passman feature on the Nextcloud Server is nice too… :slight_smile:

Don’t count on it. I think the NC mobile experience is likely only to get more modular (one app for audio, another for gallery, files, etc) as time goes by - everyone has different requirements and the main NC app will become huge.

Hello, 2 questions :

  1. Not sure if I understood well, but do you mean that we can add some addons on NC APP (agenda, contacts, RSS, audio, etc.) ? I mean, with NC APP, I can access only to my files/pictures, no more.

  2. Is there any plan to integrate webdav sync into NC APP ? Because, each time I install NC APP in somebody’s smartphone, I gave to explain why I should install DAVdroid and OpenTasks. It’s too complicated for them (and so for me at the beginning).

Thank you
