Re: Bit Torrent Client

Actually there is one. I've been using it for about a week. IT has to be sideloaded, but it isn't too much trouble.

It's called Playtorrent. The only thing that I have noticed is that it's still a little buggy and needs to be restarted every so often, and it also isn't downloading as fast as my PCs on the same network. But I think it's worth a try.

Re: Bit Torrent Client

Actually there is. Since its a simple interface program for android it can be easily can be transfered. To the blackberry o's. Only issues you need to be on 2.0. Also give playbookbar.com. That site might help find your app you want. And also you will have to learn how to side load which is pretty easy.

Re: Bit Torrent Client

Thanks for the info. When you say sideloaded do you mean transfered via desktop software? Also when I downloaded the file I can't open it because it is a bar file, It looks like I have to download something to open it and on a quick hunt I have not found something to do it yet. I'll keep looking.Thanks.

Re: Bit Torrent Client

When you say crackberry forums do you mean a different site and if so do you have a link?
