According to torrent news site TorrentFreak, a uTorrent Android client is underway that would allow users to download torrents directly via their devices, rather than using remote control apps to connect to PCs for downloading.
BitTorrent Inc, who owns uTorrent, said that the company has been working on a fully operational Android version of uTorrent that will see the PC-bound client finally go truly mobile. While no ETA has yet been provided, it will be interesting to see just how close this client comes to the features found on the its desktop counterpart. I certainly hope that the program automatically pauses downloads if it doesn’t detect a Wi-fi connection – unless of course your data plan rolls into terabytes.
It’s unclear whether or not the client will actually be approved for the Android Market once it’s released, but if it does it will see the 140+ million users of uTorrent sharing content from the comfort of their smartphone or tablet.
