I use Nextcloud already on a number of devices but would also like to integrate my ancient Android 3.x tablet. According to Google Play Store, the latest version is incompatible.
Is there a way to get at least basic file sync functionality on such an ancient Android version - maybe with an older version of the client or an alternative client?
I don’t have an old android phone to try so I can’t promise anything but you could always try and download the apk manually from the nextcloud library. https://download.nextcloud.com/android/ The oldest one seems to be from 2016, but I would try the latest one first anyway. I wouldn’t trust google play’s opinion… they believe a lot of things aren’t supported on devices and it doesn’t necessarily have to be true… Most devs build their apps with at least some sort of backward compatibility … Maybe not that far back though but who knows?
Be sure to post here if you figure it out if someone else needs the information.
Thanks for the suggestion. You where right! I downloaded the latest apk and installed it manually and now I can sync files!
Perfect! Many Thanks!
