We also put live the free Nextcloud Android app, thanks to the hard work of the team behind it. It has already had over 1000 installs and we’re sure to break the 5000 barrier soon. This large number of downloads even got us to the top of the list of productivity apps in Germany, check the list in your country and let us know where we’re at there! Nextcloud is available in the F-Droid store, where you can also find a beta version with some upcoming features – yes, you can help us test what’s coming!
It isn’t home users alone – a number of providers is already offering Nextcloud and ownCube let us know their users absolutely love Nextcloud! We’re working on putting up a page with providers, this is coming soon, promise. Customers are contacting us as well. If you’re in need of Nextcloud support, you can contact us here. And if you’re up for helping us talk to these customers, we’re urgently looking for additional sales team members!
We’ve also been excited to see so many people sign up to our newsletter. Over 1700 have joined while another 420 signed up but haven’t verified their email addresses yet. What are you waiting for, check your inbox!

It’s been a crazy ride and we’re, again, absolutely overwhelmed by your positive responses and support. Thank you, all, for making this possible.
