I just have installed Nextcloud 184.108.40.206 on my webspace, which is hosted by an ISP. After having solved som problems, I can sync to the calendar with Thunderbird, which is running on a Lubuntu PC and also on a Windows 7 PC. Unfortunately I cannot sync tasks in Thunderbird (which I have asked for a solution in another thread here in this forum).
It is of great importance for me, that I get access to Nextcloud calendar, tasks and some files via Smartphone. I have an old Samsung galaxy S2 with android 4.01 on which I have installed Nextcloud client. While installing, it checked the connection to the Nextcloud server and it seemd, that it could connect. But after this, I got only the rotating wheel, indicating that Nextcloud client “is trying something”, but without effort. There is no error message oder something else.
In the menu “settings” I saw, that for syncing with calendar, it would be necessary, to install DAVdroid also. I did and entered all the credentials again. But also DAVdroid was “loading” and never came to success.
Then I remembered, that I had aCal on my phone. It seems, that aCal and aCalTasks etc. are not in active development anymore, as I saw the latest entries in github dated on 2013. In spite of this I did give it a chance: et voila! I could manage and sync my calendar and also my tasks.
This result let me think, that the problem is in Nextcloud Anroid client and not within my installations.
The GUI of aCal and aCalTasks is not really userfriendly. Further it shows no categories for the tasks and also it does not show a task with several sub tasks. Everything shows up on the same level and so it is hard, to set priorities and keep overview.
I hope, that Nextcloud Android client will come with a far more better GUI.
So please, what can I do, to get Nextcloud for Android up and running?
