How To Remote Control uTorrent Downloads From iPhone [Video Guide – No Jailbreak Required]
Torrents get a lot of flack from just about every angle on the Web. Some people love them, some people hate them. Not to be confused with anything, the system of torrenting itself is simply a method of data transfer which tends to be a lot faster than most other methods. Seeders and Peers are used to speed up the data transfer, and torrents still remain in the mainstream for sharing large files among large groups of people.
uTorrent happens to be one of the largest running, and most successful BitTorrent clients, and is used by an enormous amount of people. As torrenting often involves downloading large files, many uTorrent users, as they would with other BitTorrent clients, often leave their computers downloading their torrent whilst going about their daily routine. Up until recently, there was no reliable way of checking on your torrent download from iPhone without jailbreaking it, or even managing it on the go. That’s now not the case: enter, uTorrent Remote.
uTorrent Remote is available for both iOS and Android, though iOS runs via a Web application, in which you are able to remotely connect to your uTorrent-running computer to manage your active torrents. It’s exceptionally useful, and we’ve put together a step-by-step walkthrough in the video below:
Enter the same credentials you selected from the process on your computer.
You should now successfully be able to log into your uTorrent account, and start, stop, pause torrent files on the go!
This is an incredibly useful tool, as you now don’t have to wait until you’re home to realize you accidentally paused a torrent, or something similar. You are now able to manage, and view all of your active torrents from your mobile device without any issues with slowing or messing up your torrenting needs. This process was demonstrated with an iPhone, but uTorrent remote is just as easy, if not easier, via Android. Enjoy!
