VP of Product Management for BitTorrent Simon Morris said that since having launching µTorrent Web for iPhone, more users had been asking for the similar support on other devices. So, the company was quite excited to answer their demands and soon announced support also for the iPad and Android OS, the list including the Google Ion and Nexus One devices. This means that the users are now able to manage torrents through their web browser on a computer, iPhone, iPad and Android.
Now µTorrent Web offers its users a possibility to control their downloads at any time and from any place they have access to the Internet. Moreover, extra web-enabled mobile devices are able to access the service, thus facilitating the use of application.
This application differs from other web UI designed for BitTorrent client products by the amazing ease of setting it up. In contrast to most of the rest, this one doesn’t require any complicated port-forwarding or confusing settings in the users’ firewall and router. All it needs is to set up login and password in user’s µTorrent 3.0 alpha application, and the client is ready for use.
The brief instruction for those trying to use the client for the first time is the following: go to Options -> Preferences -> Web and choose the option “Enable µTorrent Web Remote Access.” That’s where you need to enter your login and password and go to http://web.utorrent.com. That’s about it!
