BitTorrent Inc. has now made the remote access ‘Web’ feature of its uTorrent Falcon client compatible with the iPad and Android devices. This comes a month after it was announced for iPhone devices. uTorrent users can now remotely control their downloads from wherever they are on their favorite mobile device.
With uTorrent ‘Web’, users can access torrents running on their PC from anywhere in the world, on any computer they have access to. Torrents can be added, paused and removed using an interface with a look and feel identical to that of the uTorrent application. Initially, uTorrent ‘Web’ was only available on standard PC browsers, but last month iPhone support was added. And now even the iPad and Android users can make use of uTorrent web.
Using the feature is easy, all you need to do is set up a username and password in your uTorrent client (under Options > Preferences > Web), and then go to http://web.utorrent.com with your iPad/iPhone/Android device.
Note that you will need the latest development build of the client to play with the web interface (3.0 alpha), which is only available for windows at this stage – mac users will have to be more patient to play with the feature.
