There are alternatives I'm aware of, but they're generally
cloud-based.  Almost any online synchronization solution is going to
require a server-based component (which is really all cloud-based
means), although perhaps you could find one where you can run the
server on your own hardware.  Online applications (web-based or
otherwise) tend to be a bit of a deficiency in FOSS - there is a lot
more emphasis on desktop-oriented apps which rarely provide for mobile
syncing/etc.  When you do have infrastructure-level components that
are FOSS like IMAP/SMTP/etc, the mobile or web application options
tend to be weak.
