Real time file syncing from mobile devices

Fabian A. Santiago
Is there any plan or do there exist any apps which are owncloud compatible to offer real time syncing from mobile devices, similar to the desktop apps? Thanks.

Nextcloud app is compatible with owncloud? I didn't realize that. Thanks.

AFAIK, both nextcloud and owncloud apps are compatible but there are
both of them

I already use the owncloud app but it doesn't do what I intend which is pointing it to any arbitrary folder and keeping it in sync with the server. Right now it only auto updates pictures and video, for which you can point to a folder of your choosing but you can't specify other folders. The desktop app allows this.

yes, ons can share files, but not folders

that said, I use it for calendar, tasks, notes and can share pdf when
necessary, so I don't really see any other use case

can you say what kind of file you want to share, may be there is a
separate app that do the job

jdd
(I now use nextcloud - my provider choice)

Nextcloud seems to have less flexibility then owncloud for auto uploading. So I guess not then. Thanks.

Not share. Just backup in real time to my owncloud server.

ok

in fact there *is* a menu entry in the nextcloud app "automatic upload",
and there you seems to be able to choose any folder, but I don't seems
to know how to make it works, I have there a lot of folders and most of
them are not synced :-(

may be works in progress?

I don't believe there is an issue. Just looking for added functionality perhaps. Otherwise it works fine.
