µTorrent + BT Mac Versions Go Stable; iPad Gets Remote Makeover

Are you on a Mac? Or do you use an iPad?

In the BitTorrent community, the number of users with at least one Apple product is growing at a pretty quick pace. And we hear you loud and clear with your requests for a little more love.

Today, we’re stepping things up with three new Mac releases – new stable versions of µTorrent and BitTorrent Mainline for Mac (“stable” means they are no longer in beta testing), and a new HTML5 mobile Web interface for the iPad.

First up are two new versions of your favorite µTorrent and BitTorrent Mainline applications for the Mac. Each were created with the idea of bringing the most popular features of the PC counterparts to the Mac clients. Key new features include RSS feeds, remote/mobile support and more (see below for a complete list). µTorrent for Mac can be downloaded here, and BitTorrent Mainline for Mac is available here.

New Mac Features

– RSS Feeds and Smart Feed Subscriptions: Subscribe to torrent RSS feeds inside µTorrent and BitTorrent Mainline. Set up Smart Feeds to auto-magically fetch torrents and start downloads.

– Scheduler: Pre-schedule start, limit and stop activity for downloads at regular intervals throughout the week. A valuable feature if you’re stymied by metered and shared networks.

– Remote + Mobile: Simple, secure access to µTorrent and BitTorrent Mainline clients from anywhere. No complicated network configuration required. Add and manage torrents from any browser, mobile browser (iPad and more), and even a native Android app.

– Advanced controls and info: More control and information about what’s happening behind the scenes. Upgraded logging features too. And, now access double-secret-super-advanced preferences (they’re hidden behind CMD+OPT+,). Use wisely.

In addition to the desktop clients, we’re happy to release a gorgeous new Web interface for µTorrent, optimized for the iPad for a great touch experience. It comes complete with all the functionality in the PC-based µTorrent Remote.

Our goal is to balance power and usability while keeping it fast and light. Give it a tap, swipe and a flick and let us know what you think. Check out the new interface from your iPad by logging in here: https://remote.utorrent.com

Thanks Mac fans – and please let us know what you think.

-Brett Nishi, Director of Product Management

    К работе Utorrent Remote(на Android) нареканий нет… но думаю, что было бы неплохо, со стороны безопасности, внести “Контрольный вопрос” и для Android приложения
