Tonio is the absolute best way to receive information on your mobile device via the audio signal from your radio or TV. The designated app magically presents users a weblink in response to signals hidden in the audio track.

Absolutely not. Tonio only responds to its own signals. We are committed to offering a technology that does not need for the user to be identified by SIM card, IP address, etc.
The app doesn’t record or transmit anything. The microphone doesn’t recognize human speech, ambient music, etc. Read more about our commitment to data privacy.

Tonio is available to install on Apple’s iOS and Android devices. Currently we don’t plan to support a Windows Phone version.

Yes! Users can receive your content through the Tonio app or your developers can code the responses into your app using our software developer kits for Android and iOS.
