uTorrent Manages BitTorrent Downloads From Android Phones

Android: The uTorrent 3.0 alphas have a pretty convenient web UI, but now Android users can start, stop, monitor and even download torrents to their phone with BitTorrent's official uTorrent remote app.

Web UIs are great for monitoring your downloads when you aren't at home, but no one likes a web app on their phone — even if it is mobile-friendly . If you're a uTorrent user rocking an Android phone, you'll definitely want to check out the new uTorrent Remote app, which taps into uTorrent 3.0's remote access feature to manage your home PC's downloads when you're out and about.

This isn't just some torrent monitor like the web app, either. You can not only check on your downloads and start new ones, but even check your BitTorrent RSS feeds and shift completed files directly to your phone. Note that you'll need to be running uTorrent 3.0 on your home machine to use this app.

uTorrent Remote is a free download for Android devices running 2.1 and up.

    I've been using Transdroid for 6 months or so, and it works a real treat with rTorrent (Linux console torrent client). Its also supposed to work with uTorrent, Transmission, Vuze, Deluge, KTorrent, Bitflu, Torrentflux-b4rt, qBittorrent, etc but I can only vouch for rTorrent :)


    Good option for those of us on 1.5/1.6, since this uTorrent app is for 2.1+ only.
