About this app

This is a fork of the Syncthing-Android wrapper for Syncthing that brings major enhancements like:
* Folder, device and overall sync progress can easily be read off the UI.
* "Syncthing Camera" - an optional feature (with optional permission to use the camera) where you can take pictures with your friend, partner, ... on two phones into one shared and private Syncthing folder. No cloud involved. - FEATURE CURRENTLY IN BETA STAGE -
* "Sync every hour" to save even more battery
* Individual sync conditions can be applied per device and per folder
* Recent changes UI, click to open files.
* Changes to folder and device config can be made regardless if Syncthing is running or not
* UI explains why syncthing is running or not.
* "Battery eater" problem is fixed.
* Discover other Syncthing devices on the same network and easily add them.
* Supports two-way synchronization on external SD card since Android 11.

Syncthing-Fork for Android is a wrapper for Syncthing that provides an Android UI instead of Syncthing's built-in Web UI. Syncthing replaces proprietary sync and cloud services with something open, trustworthy and decentralized. Your data is your data alone and you deserve to choose where it is stored, if it is shared with some third party and how it's transmitted over the Internet.

Goals of the fork:
* Develop and try out enhancements together with the community.
* Release the wrapper more frequently to identify and fix bugs caused by changes in the syncthing submodule
* Make enhancements configurable in the UI, users should be able to turn them on and off

Comparison between upstream and fork at the time of writing this:
* Both contain the syncthing binary built from the official source at GitHub
* Syncing functionality and reliability depends on the syncthing binary submodule version.
* Fork gets along with upstream and sometimes they pick up my improvements.
* Strategy and release frequency is different
* Only the wrapper containing the Android UI is addressed by the fork.

Great free and open source solution! Takes some knowledge to set up, but in the end, it does everything I need! I'd love to see a notification feature, such that if a connection hasn't been made in xx hr/days, I will be notified to fix the issue. Lost some data recently when my SD card corrupted and I didn't realize syncthing service hadn't been running on my server.

There was a relatively long running issue with minimum free disk space setting not working on my Pixel 2 XL phone and hoping for a fix I decided to try this fork of the app. Unfortunately, this didn't solve the problem UNTIL by hope I emailed the developer with details of the issue. The developer is AWESOME...he replied very quickly and dove right into figuring out what the problem was and actually fixed it in a very short amount of time. With the setting now working as expected, I am up and running smoothly! This is one of my most favorite and useful apps yet!

Found this while looking for a fix for Syncthing not working on Android Q Beta, but really like all the updates. First, yes this fork does fix the issues with Syncthing not working on the Beta. The Android interface instead of the webgui works really well, very slick. The whole app runs fast. Really hope this fork and all the great work here gets incorporated directly into official Syncthing. On Pixel 3.
