UBOSbox Nextcloud provides many of the same features as are available as cloud offerings, but they run on a computer the user has in their home and they have physical control over. Unlike cloud software, none of the software on the user's device is being kept secret from the user.

Nextcloud "apps" extend its core functionality. UBOSbox Nextcloud runs the following Nextcloud apps:
