uTorrent Client Currently In Development For Android

More than a few of you either use or have used a Torrent client at some point (and no, not just for pirating). Of course many of us have thought about and waited for the moment we would be able to use Torrent clients to download files from our Android devices. Well friends, that moment is almost here now that the uTorrent client app is currently in development for the Android platform. The uTorrent client will allow for legitmate file-sharing (downloading and sending) around the world, right from your Android device. This means we’ll likely be able to see more and more apps being developed for Android— on top of the thousands of apps available now. In addition, it is believed the “Android’s open market and flexibility gives it a huge advantage when it comes to which platform is best suited to make a smooth transition from desktop to mobile.” This means we can expect to see more improved mobile ports of certain types of desktop software like say, Adobe Photoshop.

Sadly, BitTorrent is mum on release date of the uTorrent client. We know many of you are certainly licking your chops right now, so just sit tight and be patient. The app will likely be here sooner than you know it.

    Do a quick market search for ADownloader… It is a very fast torrent downloader with all the features you need and has been available for a long time. I use it regularly.
