Download Torrents Straight to Your Phone With µTorrent Android AppS

BitTorrent has just launched a beta version of its new µTorrent client for Android. Available now on Google Play, it lets you download, upload and search for torrents direct from your phone.

This isn't a remote app like the previous µTorrent offering, which only offered the ability to organize downloads on some remote computer. Instead, you can download straight to your Android, cutting out the need to transfer files to your portable device.

The app's in beta and it shows, because it doesn't run perfectly even after playing around with it for just a couple of minutes. But hey, give it a break: it's free and lets you torrent from your phone. Just make sure you're using Wi-Fi and not cellular data. [Google Play via GigaOm]
