Wondering if you could download torrent on iPhone ? Yes there are few cydia apps available which could download torrent on iPhone but hardly anyone of them work on iOS 7 or up. Previously on iOS 6 I had used a lots of such iPhone torrent downloader app which used to work flawlessly but when I tried to download on iOS 7.0.4, Cydia showed an error message “This App is not compatible with your Current iOS version”. I felt sad but that didn’t stop me from searching. And after an extensive search on lots of repos I finally found iTransmission the Best iPhone Torrent Downloader App.
With iTransmission torrent downloader you could easily download any torrent files from any host be it Movies, Musics or Games. I will show you how to use the iTransmission app below, but first lets discuss some of it features.
iPhone Torrent Downloader : Features
User Interface :
Previous version of this app look damn boring, but with the new update 4.5 it makes lots of improvement in UI (check picture below).
Connections / Port :
Like actual torrent client in iTransmission you could also set the maximum number of port you want to active per torrent. Here the maximum number of connections is limited 80 (0 – 80).
Note : As per iTransmission, “Too many connections will make your device unstable”, I think it is only applicable from iPhone 4 or lower. iPhone 4S & up could easily handle it.
Upload Limit :
There is also an option to limit the Upload speed/bandwidth which disabled by default. But if you got a slow connection like me then you should enable the upload limit.
Note : As per app, “30KB/s is recommended for upload”, (mine set to 10KB/s)
Download Limit :
Disabled by default, I think no one will mind to achieve maximum download speed, so let it as it is.
Network Interface :
Last but not the least there is an option to toggle between WiFi Network & Cellular Network. From here you can choose the mode you prefer to download Torrent Files. WiFi Network is selected by default.
