good question actually. Currently there is no plan to create an
ownCloud app for Firefox OS, neither am I aware of anyone building
something like that. However, there are some other efforts in that
* With ownCloud 7, most of the web interface (Files, sharing, Pictures,
Music, Personal settings, etc.) is responsive and works nicely on
mobile / small screens (tablets or smartphones). Since lots of Firefox

* The stock Firefox OS Calendar app can sync with ownCloud Calendar
(just use the CalDAV address from the Calendar settings) – I think
Firefox OS Contacts unfortunately does not support CardDAV yet.
