The popular Tonido app is now available for iPhone too. Tonido lets you access and share your computer files remotely via iPhone. Files include the entire collection of photos, videos, music, documents, and other files on your computer. You can easily access all of them remotely on your iPhone. You just have to create a unique server on your computer by installing the PC client and creating a server. With the help of that server, you can connect your iPhone and access the files of your server computer on your iPhone.


In short, access PC files remotely by accessing your whole PC hard drive via iPhone with Tonido app.

Best part of Tonido app is that PC and iPhone do not need to be connected on the same network. This is the biggest benefit of Tonido app as you can easily access your PC files from anywhere and anytime.

Note: You can use this Tonido app and access PC files only when your server computer is kept ON. Also, the server computer should be connected to internet. If you think that cannot be the case, then you can just use Dropbox and install Dropbox client on PC as well as iPhone.
