This is the client app for the cloud solution "just a simple cloud".
Looking for a simple cloud solution?
You want to store your data on your own server, which keeps all your clients always up to date?
You need flexible rights management to set read/write permissions?
And it should be affordable ?
- Store data on your own server, noone else will get access to your data
- User rights management
- Multi-project capability
- Fully encrypted data exchange using AES
- Scaleable license model
- Microsoft Windows based server, no need for Linux
Bevore you begin, please install the server from our website http://www.just-a-simple-cloud.com, then you can access the server with your Android client and keep all your data synced.
Clients are available also for Windows, iOS is under preparation.
Attention: This app will sync your data as a background process, even when the app is not running itself.
In order to do so, the app must be excluded from the batterie optimasation. Otherwise, Android will terminate the sync automatically.
You will be guided for this setting during the first run of the app, maybe manual adjustments will be necessary.
If you encounter, that the sync will (no longer) work, please check, if batterie optimasation is still disabled for this app.
Why do we need the permissions:
- INTERNET: access to the internet in order to sync your files
- RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: automatically start the app in background, once Android gets started
- READ_PHONE_STATE: checks, if your internet connection is fast enough to do a sync
- WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: access to the storage to store your data there
- READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: see above
- REQUEST_IGNORE_BATTERY_OPTIMIZATIONS: de-activating Android power management, otherwise the app will not be able to do a sync in background
Deviations to the Windows client:
- max. 10 projects in parallel
- no filters for folders or files
The app needs an internet connection to communicate with the server. This can bei either a Wifi connection or mobile network with minimum 3G/UTMS.
