Rich user experience

Tonido iOS app provides a variety of function depending on the file type in the form of preview pane. Clicking on a file will reveal a preview pane with specific functions. These change for each type of file. For example, Video file will allow you to perform offline optimization while Photo file will provide a method to launch slideshow.






Music and More….

One of the most requested feature is the support for playlists for music and we are happy to say that the Tonido iOS App v4.0 supports creation and management of  music playlist!

You can now create playlists that are accessible from any Tonido client (The playlists are saved on the server). The soon-to-be-released Tonido web UI will also support music playlists. The Tonido iOS App support a variety of audio formats such as Mp3, M4A, FLAC, WMV, OGG and more.  You can even choose the bitrate on the fly depending on your network conditions!



Video Playback and Live streaming

We are especially proud of the Tonido iOS App’s ability to play variety of video formats and with Windows based server (as of v2.61), non iOS supported video formats will be transcoded on the fly (provided your computer is powerful enough)! Click here to see the supported video formats.

This function is typically available only in paid apps and is available in Tonido for free. Future Tonido update will support this on Mac and Linux computers as well!

    I’m using my Tonido-Plug since 2010 and I’m loving it. After using it via Tonido Drive in my office (Tonido-Plug is in at home) and using the Android-App, now I have an ipad since at week. I must say, that the ipad-app is great stuff. Only the file-transfer of large images needs a lot of time, but this is really not a problem of Tonido. Thanks to Code Lathe for this good job.
