Tonido wants to make it extremely easy to access your data from your computer – even your videos – and their new Android app makes it possible to do it from your tablet or phone. After installing their server software from Tonido.com and setting up a local account, connecting to the Tonido ID URL with username and password will make it possible to log in to your computer and access your files. From here you can stream your videos with transcoding, listen to music from your computer, browse photos with an easy photo viewer, or just download your files as necessary. The app and server client are totally free to use for this basic functionality and unlimited remote access, with extended file synchronization available for an additional yearly subscription fee. They even sell a device called the Tonido Plug with a 2.5″ SATA port that could be used as a dedicated remote access drive on your local network. The possibilities are endless! The Tonido app is available for free from Google Play.
