Preview: Guest Login and Launch Page

One of the trends you might notice as we constantly work on new releases is making things much more intuitive and easier in every iteration. And largely, most of these improvements are from your feedback so keep these comments coming.

Many users had commented that it was hard to remember and use all these different URLs for guest shares. Well, we went back to the drawing board and made some underlying changes to the login system and made it incredibly easier (or atleast, that is what we think. :-))

First of all, your guest users don’t have to remember any new URLs anymore. If they use your URL say, http://johndoe.tonidoid.com they will get a prompt to “Login as Guest”.

owner_login

If they click that link they are whisked to a separate login page where they enter their username and password. They can also get to this page directly by using http://johndoe.tonidoid.com/guest.

guest_login

Once logged in, they see a list of all the content shared with them via Tonido and it is a simple matter of just clicking these links to start viewing, listening or downloading.

We believe this makes content sharing via Tonido much much simpler.

We would love to hear what you think. Let us know.
