Now Available in the Windows Store, New Windows 8 App Allows Users to Access and Share Docs, Photos, Music and Videos Stored on their Computer through a Private Cloud Service
AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CodeLathe, the leader in personal cloud products and services, today launched a new Windows 8 mobile app that lets individuals watch videos, listen to music, see photos and open documents that are stored on their computer (PC, Mac or Linux). This personal cloud service allows Windows 8 device users to enjoy and share their personal media without worrying about storage limits, privacy and data security.
"Typically, Microsoft Surface RT and other Windows 8 tablet devices have limited built-in storage - 32 GB to Max 128 GB at most," said Anis Abdul, CTO of CodeLathe. "If you have a large personal media collection, this will not be enough storage space. Tonido's Windows 8 app solves the storage problem by allowing users to directly access and stream media stored on their home servers and PCs from anywhere."
Tonido offers users secure access to their home computer's entire collection of documents, photos, music and videos from anywhere without having to upload them to a public cloud service. Individuals simply download the free Tonido server app to their desktop and the free Windows 8 app to their mobile devices.
The app safely connects users to the files stored on their desktop within seconds. Users can access their files via Wi-Fi or 3G mobile networks, backup their photos and videos from their Windows 8 devices to their Tonido personal cloud and download files for offline viewing.
"Tonido already has strong mobile and tablet apps for iOS and Android platforms, and our OEM customers and users have long clamored for a Windows 8 app," said Madhan Kanagavel, CEO of CodeLathe. "Continuing our mission to provide broad support for all popular devices on the market, we have decided to launch the Windows 8 app. Designed and optimized for tablets, Tonido is a simple, free way to instantly access and stream personal media."
Tonido's Windows 8 app will offer the same unique features that are enjoyed by over one million users on iOS and Android devices:
Remote File Access – Browse files and documents, download them locally, edit them and re-upload.
Download for Offline Use – Save files locally so they are available without internet access.
Music Streaming – Stream an entire music collection without saving it to a device.
Video Streaming – Easily stream videos and iTunes playlist from a computer to Windows 8 devices.
Sharing – Share selected files, music and media to guest users either via direct links or email.
Media Organization – All music, photos, videos are indexed by name, date and information such as artist, album and genre.
Complete Compatibility – Tonido persona cloud software is available for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux.
Plug-and-Play Remote Access – No fiddling with router settings.
Simple Access from Any Device - Easy to remember web URL provides access to a personal computer.
