Do we have an ETA for Android 8 support? Just gotr my new phone and would greatly enjoy my filerun on it :).

Thanks a lot by the way for the amazing app !

Under review

It shouldn't take more than a week or two for the app update to be released.

Looking forward to it too :)

Hi Vlad, any ETA on this? I hate the nextcloud app, link sharing doesn't work...

Have you ever envisaged putting more focus on the Android app and having it paid for? I'd gladly pay to have sth a bit more 2018-like


Support for Android 8 and 9 has been added to the app. The app will definitely receive more love going forward. Apologies for the wait.

the app never makes it past the splash screen. I'm on a Galaxy s9 running Android 8.0.0

same here. it shows nothing but the blank screen at the beginning. android oreo too. 

thanks in advance.

Android 8

The app only shows the splash screen.

Going out of the app and back in makes the splash disapear.

But nothing, no menus or anything!!


clearing app cache + data.

uninstall + reinstall.

reboot of device.

It's bad, I where to test drive this software (server/client), but everything is pointing me to not use this solution...

Use the Nextcloud mobile app instead: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nextcloud.client&rdid=com.nextcloud.client

For anything else other than keeping files offline or syncing, you can access the FileRun instlalation using a regular mobile browser.
