Evermusic Guide: Connections

On this screen you can connect various sources containing your music. You can integrate popular cloud services like Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, as well as connect your Mac or PC. Additionally, you have the option to import music from Apple Time Capsule or WD Cloud Mirror.

Connect a Cloud Service

If you encounter any issues, be sure to check your internet connection and login/password. In the Premium version of the app, you can add an unlimited number of services.


Supported cloud services:

Currently the application supports the most popular cloud services: iCloudDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, Box, MEGA, Yandex.Disk, WD MyCloud Home, DLNA, MediaFire, WebDAV, SMB, MyDrive, pCloud, HiDrive, 百度网盘, My Cloud Home, InfiniCLOUD, Put.io.


Security and privacy:

We use only official SDK and secure connection to interact with connected cloud services. Your login and password are not available for the application. All requests from the application to the cloud service are encrypted.


When you enter login and password the application shows you the official authorization page that is provided by the cloud service provider and all authorization process is made outside the application. The cloud service provider sends an auth-token to the application after successful authorization and that token is used to make API calls.

Auth-token is a digital key that allows third-party applications to interact with cloud storage. Auth-token is stored on your device in secure system storage called Keychain. You can download your files from the connected cloud service to the device and those files will be placed in the app "Documents" directory. You can remove that files anytime using the built-in file manager.


The application does not share any information from the connected cloud account. You can revoke access to your cloud account anytime by opening the account settings page on your web browser.

To reject auth-token:

Login to your account on the web browser and navigate to the settings page. There you can find all third-party apps which are connected to your cloud account and remove any of them if you don’t want to use that application anymore. Detailed instruction available [here]:

You can also disconnect the connected cloud accounts in the application and auth-token will be also removed from your device. If you remove the application from your device all downloaded data and access tokens will be also removed.


To disconnect a cloud service or change configuration:

- Access Service Options: first, locate the cloud service you wish to manage within the app's interface.

- Tap '...' Button: next to the service title, you'll see a '...' button. Tap on it to access additional options.

- Rename: if you want to change the name of the cloud service as it appears in your list, select 'Rename.'

- Settings: to modify the configuration or authentication data for the cloud service, choose 'Settings.' Sometimes, you may need to reauthorize the connected cloud service if the authorization token has expired.

- Disconnect: if you wish to completely sever the connection between the app and the cloud service, select 'Disconnect.' Be aware that choosing this option will remove all songs associated with this cloud service from your app's music library, although they will remain on the server.
