    Open Source Mac Windows Linux Web / Cloud Android ... iPhone Android Tablet iPad Self-Hosted Cloudron

    • If you don't mind setting up your own server, NextCloud is a great Dropbox alternative because: 1) it's open source, 2) you control your data, 3) the limit of your storage is determined only by the limit of your hard drive. Alternatively, you can get services to host a NextCloud install on their servers for you, but then you give that service access to your data. Unless you encrypt client side with something like Cryptomator first. JohnFastmanDec 2016 Disagree   Agree
