Search and add NZB files straight to the queue. Tanis supports powerful searching, filtering and sorting of multiple indexers*.
Change the category, post processing script, whatever. Tanis supports it all!
Control multiple servers** with ease, remote or locally.
Use a step-by-step wizard to add a server. Forget about retyping 30 character API keys, Tanis will automagically grab it for you.
No more pesky long post names. Tanis will shorten those and even help you categorize downloaded NZB's.
Keep track of your complete search history. Restoring a previous search is a breeze.
Specially for the power users amongst us we've added a feature called Quick add. It allows you to quickly add a NZB straight to the queue, without even leaving the search results.
All graphics have been optimized for the latest iPhone and iPad Retina displays.
We've put extra effort into providing VoiceOver support.
The following guide explains step-by-step how to control SABnzbd across the internet.
Optionally you can also download a simplified graphical guide.
When you are done, always configure a web username and web password for SABnzbd!
Configure your internet router to forward the SABnzbd port to the static IP address. The default SABnzbd port is
You can find the port number by having a look at the settings tab of the config section.
If you are uncertain how to configure your router, go to portforward.com and search your router by brand and model number.
Use the steps described for port forwarding the application "Apache". Just mind that you should use your SABnzbd port instead of Apache's default one.
Add a new server in Tanis with your remote IP address. Find out what this is by accessing the site whatsmyip.org
A better solution, to using your remote IP address, is to use a dynamic DNS service like DynDNS
If you can't connect with Tanis after completing the above steps, please check if you can connect using 3G only (by disabling wi-fi on your iPhone /iPad)
By default SABnzbd has a web interface that you can use with Mobile Safari.
We think web apps suck on iOS and the web interface of SABnzbd is no exception. Native apps provide a superior user experience.
SABnzbd simply deserves a better, native, experience.
Not yet, but this might change in the future. We haven't found any software that matches the rich API provided by SABnzbd.
We use the iOS keychain to store any sensitive information. This includes API keys, usernames and passwords.
No. The only thing we log and send are app crashes. You can opt-out of this by visiting the Tanis settings inside the iOS settings app.
Check your server warnings. This can happen if you use Newzbin as the provider. Tanis and your SABnzbd server require the exact same credentials.
In order to queue Newzbin NZB's you need to provide SABnzbd with the right credentials. When you enter Newzbin credentials Tanis will automatically try to store them on your server.
When adding a new server simply go to Newzbin settings and press the save button. This will also store your credentials on the newly added server.
Verify your Newzbin credentials in SABnzbd and Tanis are correct. Check server warnings for more information.
