It’s been a long time since BitTorrent Inc. promised to release uTorrent client for Android. Finally, the dream of many users worldwide has come true: the developers finally launched the most popular BitTorrent client in the world for Android smartphones and tablets.
The new application (beta release) is packed with plenty of useful features. The users will be able to search for torrents and download the content directly on their device. Even RSS feeds are available in the new client. BitTorrent Inc. announced that for the past few months its developers have been working hard developing a mobile BitTorrent client for Android which is worthy of the name uTorrent.
The company realized that the client would need to be fast, lightweight, powerful and better than anything else that can be found on the market today. Earlier, the mobile and tablet users were able to control uTorrent through an app called “uTorrent remote”. BitTorrent Inc. claimed it was very excited to add uTorrent for Android to its mobile product range, and its user base is already reaching 4,000,000 users.
Although the users out there are still waiting for the uTorrent editions for Mac devices (iPhone, iPad), the company currently has other priorities, saying that at the moment it would focus on growing its Android clients. In the meantime, Apple users are able to use Falcon, which is an excellent application compatible with iPhone.
In addition, BitTorrent Inc. keeps working on a uTorrent release for Linux OS. Anyway, this is good news for the users who appreciate the developing team’s relentless work and dedication. This is a reason for uTorrent to remain the most popular peer-to-peer client in the world.

|Downloading on a table versus a standard computer: understandable if only using WiFi since you can still use something to obscure the connection somewhat (e.g., proxy, VPN, firewall).|
Downloading on a phone versus a standard computer or tablet (if not connected solely to a WiFi signal - which is potentially impossible depending on certain circumstances): the most idiotic thing someone could do when downloading a copyrighted movie/song/book through a monitored service such as BitTorrent given that you are easily traceable (at least to within a close proximity solely using GPS coordinates and/or cell-tower triangulation) and easily identifiable since most of the time the user will be required to have a data plan (which will require giving the provider their name, address, alternate phone number(s), social security number, and potentially other information).
Yes, there are loopholes in my argument - I'm not going to point out every pro or con - so don't bother trying to pick it apart or point out something like "you forgot about ..."

|@SyKoTiK couldn't agree more|

|Wow @now-we-can people, there have been ton of torrent clients for android for ages! Both free & paid you could choose one for you. There is no revolution in one more being added adding to the selection.|
@SyKoTiK: You have never heard of encrypted connection, have you?? Most sane carriers ban bittorent traffic anyway so you have to use encrypted connection. There is no big deal. They can guess you torrent something, but they cant know what or prove it (unless your phone has carrier-provided spyware in it).
And also, in many parts of the world mobile phone and mobile connection is the only thing that people have, because the infrastructure is easier to develop then wires. Either that or mobile connection is more affordable. Populationwise, the majority of people on the planet has it this way.

|@svolota: You apparently don't think things through before you speak. Encryption does SOMEWHAT help prevent people from being caught when an attacker is trying to use a man-in-the-middle attack or a packet capture, however you obviously didn't think of the one thing that no amount of encryption will protect you against - all they have to do is download the same torrent as you are and you show up in the list of peers/seeders, therefor bypassing all encryption.|

|SyKoTiK: so you believe carrier's gonna have a staffperson who will try out every single torrent in the world to obtain *cough* questionable proof of a single person torrenting? That sounds a bit like too much paranoia. They just overlook it.|
Most people are too stupid to use it anyway - you can clearly see from comments many people even werent aware they could torrent on android for ages already.

Or in my country PAKISTAN , lolz @Law and order here .|

I never said that they would have anyone try out every single torrent in the world. In fact, I can promise - with a fairly high amount of certainty - that they would NOT do that. What I DO think they'd do, however, is set up a bot that uses a list filled with very specific words and/or patterns to search for and then download torrents matching them (e.g., copyrighted movie titles, copyrighted music albums) therefor removing all need to have a paid individual locate and log any information by having the bot log all unique IP addresses from the swarm and then sending the log to the appropriate authorities.
With as many headlines and articles as there are about copyright infringement when it comes to downloading via Torrent files, if you honestly believe that they would "overlook it" I think you underestimate just how far people will go to make money.

|@19 or it is possible to see the clients with wich IPs is the client getting connected to , or downloading/uploading to and from them . check for the torrents which have the same IPs including the client in their IP log or Swarms . Then sending the links or the file status to the comcerned department .|
|downloading in my phone rightnow|
|its sucks.. how do i download it?|

I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to say - or if it's any different than what I had already said - so I'm just going to nod my head for now and agree.

|I'd never download torrents through my tablet - not very safe and I would have to keep it on all the time to seed. This seems very much designed to encourage hit and runs.|

|I just don't see how this is even really feasible, data caps on cellular lines are worse than land lines. the only way any one could even use this is if they used there home connection "be no point" or maybe even there works connection.|

Let me just end this all by saying that I'm sorry. I apologize if I upset you by anything that I said. I should not have singled you out as a target since you were just contributing to the article's comments.
I've removed my previous posts since they were unwarranted and are uncharacteristic of me.
Again, I'm sorry.
