    Default TorrentTRAK: Remote Control BitTorrent Downloads From Your iPhone

    image via SoundPost Design

    It's possible to spend absurd amounts of time setting up, monitoring and managing BitTorrent downloads and seeds, and if you find that your Transmission machine is somewhere different (i.e. home) from where you spend much of your time (i.e. work), the ability to set up remote access to Transmission is of enormous value. TorrentTRAK is a remote Transmission interface for the iPhone or iPod touch that allows you to view all the details of the Transmission BitTorrent interface in a native iPhone app, rather than using Safari on the iPhone.

    TorrentTRAK requires you to set up remote access on Transmission, which is a one click process (Preferences - Remote - Enable remote access). With TorrentTRAK running on your iPhone, you just add the Transmission computer's IP address (Mac or PC). You can access Transmission from outside your local network by using either a static IP set by your provider or one you set using a service like DynDNS, or just determining the dynamically assigned IP and hoping the router doesn't reset.

    TorrentTRAK is a commercial program (USD$0.99) with a free trial through Rock Your Phone.

    utorrent is the program, what they are showing on the screen is the actual torrent sites.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but TorrentTRAK only works with Tranmission... So unless Transmission is uTorrent, you're wrong.

    It's not as fast as uTorrent, but I use Vuze mostly. You can stream movie to you xbox, ps3, ect., which is dope.

    Rock Your Phone?

    That's a deal-breaker for me. I'll wait for drivetrain.

    I got this app about a week ago and I love it.

    And to all the RYP haters, I too was very skeptical when Tlert came out and I wanted to install it. My suggestion? Install rock app from cydia and just use that, no need for the desktop client.

    Ditto on the RYP requirements. I really dont need to slow down my iPhone with any more unnecessary junk. Make the apps stand alone installs and you would have a lot more users.

    However if TorrentTRAK works as easy as the WebUI for Transmission, its got to be good.

    Yes, and the article says it's for Transmission, which is also a program. I've had pretty bad experiences with Transmission, so I'd definitely prefer to be able to use other programs.
