Try out the new Android 2.5.1 Beta App now!
Get an preview of the upcoming ownCloud Android Release and help our devs by testing the android beta Release! Get it while its hot!
Apart from the 10.0.4 release which will come soon, we also need testers for the new version of the Android app. You have the chance to try out fresh features, and at the same time, you can help other ownCloud users, by contributing to the quality of the ownCloud software with your bug reports.
With the new Android version, we will have a new camera uploads feature, that is going to replace the instant uploads. The user just has to select a camera folder, and the pictures and videos from the camera folder are uploaded automatically in a period of 15 minutes at most, focusing on reliability instead of immediacy and avoiding battery draining caused by excessive checking of the folder.
We also adjusted the app to work fine with Android O, so you can use some of the features of the new Android version with the ownCloud app, for example the notification categories, enabling you to configure separately the notifications for ownCloud uploads and downloads among others. If you are already waiting for this, one more reason to download the beta now on the play store! If you have a google-free android phone, you can also get it on F-Droid.
