iOS App and iOS Files App Integration and 3rd Party Apps

Work With Your ownCloud Data in iOS Files App

The Mobile App for iOS integrates with the iOS Files App. When enabled, you can open, edit, save, and delete files and folders. However, the functionality needs to first be enabled. To do so, click Browse, then Edit. Next, in the list of apps under Locations, enable the ownCloud app for your account.

In future versions, it is expected that the following functionality will also be supported:

  • Share (UI)

  • Offline (UI)

  • Favourites

  • Tags

Share From Other Apps (via iOS Files App)

When the iOS app is installed and at least one account is properly configured, files on your iOS device can be shared with your ownCloud server. To do so, first enable the location from the Locations list (step through how to do this). After that, when sharing a file, first click Save to Files, choose a location to store the file, and click Add. These steps are shown in the three images below.
