Text/PDF file content search

Postby New Daddy » Thu Sep 15, 2011 10:55 am

I love Tonido and found it to be the best cloud solution for my music and photo.

But I'm hesitant to use Tonido as the depository for my Word or PDF files, of which there are many as I'm a researcher for a couple of reasons:

First, there is no web-based viewer for these files. It's no big deal if the desktop you're using already has PDF viewer and MS Word installed, but not all public computers do.

Second, and more importantly for myself, Tonido doesn't have contents search feature. With Google Docs, which serves as my Word/PDF file depository for now, has a very powerful content search feature that and can dig up the document you want almost instantaneously based on a keyword. It's an indispensable feature for a researcher like myself who has to handle thousands of papers.

Full text searching for files like PDFs is important to be able to compete with a service like Box.net/.com

Would love to see this implemented!

The recent ability to view PDFs via the web browser is great! However the inability to do so for other formats such as Word, Spread Sheets, or txt has kept me from moving my document library over completely from Google. Which I really want to do. When can we please get that functionality for Tonido? Of course in document search ability would be great as well.
