Best Windows 8 Apps
4 September 2015
I can not seem to get Tonido to do anything on Windows Surface. Would love to see some development for other interfaces.

I've installed and tested many file\multimedia servers on Windows and Linux machines... this works super easy. 1st: install the server software on the machine with all your files (central server) then 2nd install this app on RT and Pro machines. ALSO: you can access ALL your files via your HTTP browser (http://yourname.tonidoid.com)... AND there are apps for IOS, Blackberry and Android.

Will not connect to my server (properly port forwarded) that exists on the same network.
2 star for residual quality of desktop server app.

This app is beautifully simple, as well as just plain beautiful. Frankly, I don't know WHAT those other reviewers are talking about when they give this app such outlandishly negative reviews. (One star? Are you serious? And no, I don't work for, nor does anyone I know work for Tonido.)
Perfectly simple, elegant, and efficient--period!

Can't do anything. Nowhere to sign in or setup.

This program fails to work in the most fundamental way. I have used the version for android, and it fails to play movies over LTE. This program, however, fails to display complete screens. If there are no items at a level (no matter what that level is) it fails to show a back arrow !!!! you have to quit the program and start over.

just says choose account from settings menu and there is no account to choose from. Totally not intuitive, wtf am I supposed to do. Desktop versions works fine.

did not install properly. Is not listed in the Uninstall program list

won't connect. Tells me unable to connect to server even though I can connect through IE. Disappointed.

If it does connect locally the navigation is awful. Tonidio is a great idea but it is still filled with bugs!

Not able to see any of my files. Able to log in and see all the drives that I have sharing but nothing beyond that. Please fix.

I really like Tonido and the web interface for it. However, the Windows 8 app definitely needs some polish before I can give it more stars. For instance, the toolbar buttons that show up when swiping down from the top have buggy animations (hover over them and you see a gray box). The app crashes more than I would like. Also, it needs an ability to set a passcode when the app is switched out, like on the iPhone version.

I bought their webshare pro awhile ago (one time charge), and now they changed the rules and want me to pay a yearly subscription in order to get the webshare functionality (share files etc). Their new "Tonido pro" requires the $30 A YEAR subscription to use the functionality I already bought. AND it's just not worth it. Slow and the interface on the mobile access lacks capabilities. nah....

If it's not a video supported by the built in player, it won't work. The Open With button does exactly nothing on my computer.

Apps like this and a few others give me hope that developers will begin putting time and effort into the platform. I wish it could play a few more media types but overall its functional and aesthetically pleasing !

Great job on the features and functionality, but the app could look a bit better and when downloading I have no idea where the files download to.

It connects fine. It displays fine. I am unable to play some files, and unable to select another player to open with.

At first it seemed I could not get my account added, but if you put in the URL http://YOUR_CLOUD_NAME.tonidoid.com (mainly meaning remember to add http:// part, then it should work).
This app is much more touch friendly than the browser, I recommend using it!

We have been using Tonido across our team for sharing and syncing. Works great, I can access all the files in my PC from anywhere. I like the app better than the current browser UI. Great must-have app.
Just use the normal desktop app. This one doesn't connect to your server.
