Jolla announced Tablet has not mentioned about something like "cloud service". I suppose we can use existing clouds to store some files (music, pictures, etc..) but it would by great if Jolla could prepare its own cloud service for storing settings, installed native apps, contacts.... - something like "backup storage". Apple has something like this in their iCloud. This cloud should work also for Jolla phone as one ecosystem.

a native younited app is supposed to fill that gap, ... we are still waiting

I'd be happy to see something decentralized. BTSync does the job quite well. Maybe a more user-friendly way to install (as an app?) would be all that's needed.

Last February, Jolla published a press release saying that there are working with younited to offer a cloud solution to Jolla users. This solution would have give access to cloud features with privacy in mind. http://jolla.com/media/documents/MWC_F-Secure_announcement_MWC2014_FINAL.pdf Unfortunately the result is an Android application for Jolla Phone and not a Sailfish application. Moreover it is not a tied integration with Sailfish. Registration under Younited is very simple once the application has been downloaded. Therefore few information is provided by default about the proposed solution especially about the location of cloud storage (including storage of backups) which is key for a solution that claims to be secure and to respect privacy.

Yes, a native backup storage (for contacts, settings, calendar, etc.) is really needed.

I don't think there's too much of a difference in cloud services considering phone and tablet, so closing this as duplicate with: https://together.jolla.com/question/411/icloude-or-skydrive-type-services-on-jolla/

What about native ownCloud support?

Or rather WebDAV and the rest. Once you have WebDAV you can use any compliant cloud service like Mykloab for instance.

That request is here https://together.jolla.com/question/1168/secure-backup/, if you leave out the "Jolla please setup a cloud service for your users" it is actually a duplicate of it. Problem is the backup is a git, so best way would actually to have a service on the phone that uses a private & secure git instance...
