Even with the strict guidelines put up by Apple for approving the apps in the App store, this news piece should definitely raise eyebrows. Because an app to download torrent files right from your iPhone, iPod touch was approved this week and is available for download in the appstore.
The app: IS Drive, formerly known as Jacktorrents in the cydia universe, offers users of imageshack’s torrent service to easily manage and download torrent files. However, as IS drive is an officially approved Bittorrent app in the app store- you’ve to shell out $4.99 to get this on your iPod touch and iPhone device.
Download IS Drive App For iPhone and iPod touch
You can download ISdrive app from the official App store (iTunes link). Note that this app doesn’t work for 3.x firmware and is compatible with iPhone and iPod touch iOS 4.0 firmware or later only. Also, after looking into the early reviews I assume the app is glitchy and might not work with iPhone 3GS.
Another noteworthy app I’d recommend, which is free, is dTunes. Although available only for Jailbroken iPod touch and iPhone, dTunes allows you to enter the torrent website url — download the files — and manage them easily.
For those who are not willing to jailbreak your Apple device, IS drive is the app for you!
