The Nextcloud Files for iOS app has been updated to a major new version, Nextcloud v4 “Liquid”, that introduces next-level features for the functionalities you use daily and more!
We are happy to share that Nextcloud for iOS now has 2 completely rewritten directories (“share” extension & “delete user”) plus improvements of the SSL certificates and more certificate details for more security!
Now, uploading files on your Nextcloud gets more efficient! Activate chunking when uploading large files in the cloud and manage the size of a chunk from 0 (chunking disabled) to 100 MB.
In chunked transfer encoding, the data stream is divided into a series of non-overlapping “chunks”. The chunks are sent out and received independently of one another. Files get sent in a series of chunks instead of just one piece of data and waiting until the complete segment becomes available, is not necessary.
The “status” setting feature was introduced in Nextcloud Hub 20 for the first time, and now it is available on the iOS client as well! Set your status and communicate to the other users what you are up to!
🟢 Are you online and available? Let the others know! 🌛 Are you away? Adjust your status and other users will not expect to hear from you until you are back. ⛔ Busy and really focused on something? You’ll not get any notification and your colleagues will know why.
And add some fun to the day with a cool status message or choose one of the default ones. Will you be off on Tuesday? Let the team know and schedule clearing the message on Wednesday!
The context menu now offers users to quickly choose between more and more options. Long press on a picture and instantly pops a menu to manage the file. Copy or move an image to another folder, open the image in its location, see the full detail list, open it with another app, download it to your device or delete it completely, quick print a file directly from the app.
Now you can also convert pictures to PDF using the new “save as scan” option.
A new collaboration feature available through the context menu, “modify”, allows you to draw on images or PDF files. You can highlight, underscore, erase, measure or draw in different colors. Then choose how to save the edited file:
With this new version of the Nextloud iOS app you can open multiple files in another app. This feature is especially useful for sharing files through mail or a Talk conversation etc.
Improvements have been made on the dark mode and the media tab as well. Check the screenshots!
Enabling the dark mode while using your devices enhances visual ergonomics and reduces eye strain. It adjusts the screen colors according to current light conditions, providing more comfort at night or in dark environments. Now, the dark mode experience has been improved!
With these improvements you will be able to share files from other apps with the Nextcloud user you choose, within the share view.
You no longer need to access the Nextcloud app and switch users from there first and this makes sharing a lot easier.
Now you can also delete a user directly, without switching to the account you want to delete! This is especially useful for accounts with problems, that generate several error messages and request a login.
Of course many fixes, refinements and features are being made regularly and older versions of Nextcloud are not supported. Nextcloud 14 (server) is the oldest release that will work with this version of our app. This version of the Nextcloud iOS client (version 4.0) is supported on iOS 11 and newer.
We strongly recommend private users to upgrade their Nextcloud servers!
Note that Nextcloud offers long term support for companies, as sometimes they have to use older versions. Contact our sales team for more information on this.
Here’s a quick must know for you!
