Tabs to navigate easily between pages
In this new version, we have introduced tabs that would help you navigate easily between remote file, favorites, local files, music, status pages without losing state in a page.
Saves multiple account/password
App saves account/passwords as you switch between multiple accounts. You can manage the saved accounts by clicking on “saved logins” in the login screen. BTW, you can even save guest account/passwords.
Play Music in the background
You can play music in the background, while you move to other pages or even other applications. When you want to get back to Tonido, you can use the icon on notification bar to get to Tonido app.
Share files (webshare links) via Facebook
In addition to regular actions that you can perform on a file or folder, you can post a file or folder to Facebook. When you click on the action icon or long click on a file, ‘Share via Facebook’ option appears. Once selected, the app will create a webshare link to the file and share the link in Facebook.
Improved gallery view
By selecting the “Image Gallery” in the menu, you can view the photos in your remote PC or device in a grid view. Clicking on any picture would open an image, and you can navigate to other pictures in the gallery by swipe gesture. A long click on the picture will open file actions menu.
Thumbnail view to simplify uploading
When you want to upload files from your phone, you have an option to navigate local files either in regular file explorer mode or in a new grid mode. The grid view is very useful when you are uploading photos from the phone. You can directly select the thumbnails to be uploaded(the background color changes if picture is selected), which makes it easier to upload right photos.
UI optimized for Tablets (incl Kindle)
We have optimized the UI to take advantage of larger screen in tablets. We have optimized UI for Kindle as well, we will be releasing a new version for Kindle soon.
