No review yet? What a shame. I canceled my dropbox account for security reasons and I was looking for a replacement. I found own cloud does all I need:

- Securely store and sync files across my macs
- Share files with others
- Calendar and contact server (incl. shared calendars and contacts)

If you are a computer geek, there are even more things you can do like cloud based subscriptions, ...

Yes, it isn't as easy to set up as dropbox but once you have configured your installation, you will get a secure and easy to use cloud storage system.
There are still some minor things missing like copy public links from the Finder (you can use Automator to create such an action) but the app and server is in constant development and I am sure this will be implemented in future versions.

Another drawback is that owncloud isn't as widely supported as dropbox by other apps and I hope other developers will include owncloud as an alternative to dropbox.

So said: if you are looking for a secure, encrypted dropbox replacement and you have some computer tech knowledge, give own cloud a try.

I'm curious why you believe that your files on a small developer's ThinkPad are more secure than at DropBox?

@ Skapplin: because your files are on your own server in your own country with own privacy rights unlike the u.s.a where privacy rights are non existent.

Obviously, you need an education in privacy rights. Privacy is protected far more vigorously in the US than anywhere else in the world. But that's irrelevant to my question.

If your server is poorly protected or shuts down when you are not present, then you have nothing. Furthermore, why would I want my files on my computer when I operate from another location? I want files on a server I can access all the time from anywhere. And, files on my computer or on your computer are not that secure.

I think you got your bell rung just a little too hard.

Quick tipp, if you have your own webspace, you can most likely install the server based php script over Installatron.
(Use Installatron to find applications for your website, install them, and keep them current.)

Skapplin, my reason to select OwnCloud vs DropBox is that I could very easily install myself the open-source server php code on one of my hosting services (which I co-own, in my country), so I control absolutely everything as concerns data access.
As the name says, to me it's become my OWN cloud. The family , friends and people I want to access, access. The others, don't have a say.

@Skapplin: You are absolutely wrong in your belief that the US protects privacy rights "for more vigorously≥then anywhere else in the world." Check out Europe's privacy laws, for example. First take note that they actually _have_ privacy laws, whereas in the US, not so much.
It would really help to educate yourself about other countries in the world before you just assume the US is better than them in every single way. In some things it may be better than most/all, it in others it definitely is not. It isn't hard - just read a bit.
