NextCloud is a cloud service that's relatively small when compared to its competitors like Dropbox and OneDrive but already has apps on iOS, Android, and Windows 10 PC and a variety of features. The next update to the Windows phone app will update it to the new Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app format which will essentially merge it with the Windows 10 PC app and will also give it support for Microsoft's new Surface Laptop devices.
