We are proud to announce that from now on, the Nextcloud iOS app is open source! You can find the full code in github and get involved right now!
Since we partnered with TWS we have worked with them to improve the fit between Nextcloud and the iOS application. They have made tremendous progress developing more improvements to the application in the last half year. Today, we take a new step, as TWS is making the iOS app available in the Nextcloud Github repository under the GPLv3 license.
As the Apple iStore restrictions are not entirely compatible with the GPLv3, we have listened to advice of members of the Free Software Foundation Europe’s Legal Network, and include a license exception for the store which allows people to make their own enhancements and forks. The exception requires people who make modifications to “comply with the GPL in all other respects, including its requirements to provide users with source code and the text of the license“. Of course, as an open source project, what we look forward to most are people who contribute change to the Nextcloud iOS application directly!
