Ratings and Reviews

Good start but needs some work


Auto upload is the feature I want the most. It works sometimes but not consistently. I have to keep killing the app and restarting to to kick off the upload. If auto upload doesn't work it is impossible to see what files you have already uploaded because the display is truncated. So then selecting all will work because it will throw errors when there is a conflict, but the errors are notifications that show up on the badge count and you have to swipe each one individually to dismiss.

The photo browsing is also nowhere near what Dropbox and carousel offer. It works, but is really slow and doesn't seem to prefetch anything so you have to wait for each image to download. It would be nice to at least have a thumbnail generated to get a rough idea before clicking through to load it.

Absolute basic functionality works and is effective, it just needs quite a bit of refinement.

A very crappy app for a nice service


I came across with this owncloud service using my Qnap, I thing is neat, I even stopped using OneDrive and Google Photos BUT, this app is a total piece of junk. Is unstable, huge lack of features (are you kidding me, there is not even "Select All" function!!!) at the point that I'm considering go back to OneDrive. I'm not a business, I was just looking for cloud solution that allows all of our Smartphones make pictures backup/sync to my home NAS but in the background without any user interaction, well, the app does that, but only does that. I'm not even going to mention how slow it performs, my whole network is running gigabit and the wireless radio at the maximum and this thing synchronizes probably 1 picture every 30 seconds, is ridiculous, and I setup the service using MySQL, not the crappy SQL lite they have from default. Bottom line, I will love to see a real app for this service, I will pay even more than a buck if really works and do the job right.

Not so obvious errors


I just installed a fresh server release on Ubuntu and threw it behind my nginx reverse proxy. It is possible to make it work, but nginx and possibly PHP need to have max upload sizes tweaked. Nginx does for sure. Second is that you MUST have the application available under the /owncloud URI path. If either of these are wrong, this app will not tell you what to do. You have to see the 413 HTTP status codes in your log. You have to try the app out in a browser in debug mode to see that hard coded dependencies cannot be found.
Finally, I knocked this app way down because I primarily want to upload and explore my pictures, but uploading in iOS doesn't provide meaningful names and it won't show you the Pictures app for slideshow mode; an obvious use case.
Was glad to pay $1 to support the cause though. Keep chugging folks. This tool is close to being a match for more popular cloud file system boxes.
