Announcing Renewed Android App

We are excited to announce an updated Android app with many new features, focused mainly on providing superior user experience. Here are the highlights in this release:

  • Introduced tabs to navigate easily between pages
  • Saves multiple account/passwords
  • Can play music in the background
  • Option to share files (webshare links) via Facebook
  • Improved photo gallery view
  • Thumbnail view to simplify uploading
  • Importantly, UI changes optimized for Tablets (incl Kindle)

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.


Music Player 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.


Manage Saved Accounts

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.

Image Gallery

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.

Feel free to send us your feedback our way as it helps us continuously improve the app.  You could also visit our Tonido on Mobile Forums to discuss any issues.

Android Update (v27) – Upload files from Phone to PC and more…

We are excited to announce an update with a set of new features and some fixes for Android App. Here are the highlights

Upload files from Android device to your computer

You can select multiple files to upload from your Android device to a Computer or to a Tonido device. Two simple steps to upload files

1) Browse to the destination folder  and select upload from the menu


2) App will list the local folder and files. Select the files to upload and click ‘upload’ . You can see status of your uploads in the status page




Option to change destination for downloaded files

Many of you had asked for option to change the destination for downloaded files, we have added that as an option in the settings page. Save button will save the settings, if the folder is not present in the path, app will create a folder.



Share pictures while browsing pictures

 You can share pictures by clicking on the share button at the top of the picture gallery or in the picture view page.



Prompt to relogin if session is expired

If a session is expired, the app will prompt a dialog giving an option to relogin in the background without going through the login page.

Other fixes/ Improvements

  • Fix for Issue: While browsing downloaded files, back click takes to start page instead of parent folder
  • Subject of Email will state ‘folder’ or ‘file’ based on what is shared
  • Fix for Issue: Switching from LAN and mobile causes blank page in some phones
  • Overall UI lift
