Are you :new: to Nextcloud?

Here’s a quick must know for you!

  • Nextcloud is a private file sync & share and communication server. It is fully open-source and you can host it yourself or pay a company to do it for you. That way, you are in control of your photos, your calendar and contact data, your documents and everything else.
  • Nextcloud is self-hosted – you can install it on your own server and use it for private or business purposes. If you need the best business platform for secure filesharing, collaboration and communication check out here.
  • Nextcloud is server software that also has available mobile apps. This is our release announcement for Nextcloud 3.19 for Android. The Nextcloud Android app allows you to access all your files on your Nextcloud. There’s a Nextcloud mobile app for iOS as well. You can use any of them, and access your data anywhere, whenever if you have a Nextcloud installation running on your server – which is very simple to set up!

We appreciate your feedback! What’s the best thing about the Nextcloud Android client so far?


Does anybody else have the problem that switching accounts does not work the first time you tap, only if you close the switching modal and open it again?
I saw this in previous versions also…


yes I experience the same issue but did not look any further eg. if a github issue exists.

No problems on Android 10…
