Hi everybody!

A new version of the ownCloud Android app is now officially available. 
This is sooner than what we planned, but so was the release of Android 7 
from Google.

If any of you is already enjoying the Android 7 update, you sure will 
have noticed that instant upload of pictures and videos from the camera 
don't work anymore.

So here is 2.1.1 to fix it!

Moreover, as a side benefit, if your favorite camera app wasn't 
compatible with the instat upload feature in ownCloud, you can give it 
another try now (no matter your Android version). Go to 'Settings', 
enable instant upload of pictures or video and ** scroll down to choose 
the folder where your camera app stores the new pictures ** .

*********

Please, notice that, whatever your Android version is, ** you might need 
to select your camera folder ** in ownCloud settings to keep your 
instant uploads working, depending on what's your favorite camera app.

*********

Full changelog:

- Instant uploads work in Android 7.
- Select your camera folder to upload pictures or videos from any camera 
app.
- Multi-Window support for Android 7.
- Size of folders shown in list of files.
- Sort by size your list of files.


The app is already available for download in Google Play Store:
