Some here have a serious misconception about this "service." You are not running the cloud from your desktop - you desktop is the host for the files; "cloud" access is through the Tonido server. A cloud is not just storage and software... it is a service, and your machine is not providing that. It is provide by Tonido and you are dependent upon that, hence the account you set up.

If anyone knows of actual cloud "service" as well software options for personal computers, those should be added to the "similar software" as well.

Excellent app, but i have a few questions that I hope someone would know the answer to: 1. is there a way to configure the software to prevent remote file deletion, and 2. is there a way to clear the recently accessed file list?

I can't add these to the Similar Software section but you could have a look at Tappin and Libox. IDWFT.

What does this do that OS X Server doesn't? Shouldn't that also be listed as "similar software"?


The most similar app to Tonido is PogoPlug PC - which costs $29.99.

PogoPlug PC and Tonido turn your computer into your personal DropBox - though without synchronization. OS X Server doesn't do this.

You can access your files from your iPhone or iPad or from other Macs just as you do your files on DropBox.

This is a powerful concept since you can have unlimited storage unlike DropBox or other cloud services. And the cloud service is run by you - not some unseen entity which can give your information to the government without your permission.

The question I have for Tonido, however, is how will it make money if it gives away the server software and client software for free. I see that there is a business version than runs $129 to $999 a year. But will enough customers bite and pay for this version? I hope so.

Makes my mac seamlessly available with much fuss on my iPad (useful for streaming music, watching my photos etc). Some aspects could be improved a bit, but overall great.

Awesome software for remove file access.
I have huge amount of music collection and Tonido lets me listen to my songs via iPhone app. No more syncing music to the phone :-)
