BitTorrent Inc. has confirmed that they are working on a version of uTorrent client for the Google Android devices.
This edition would be a fully functional torrent client rather than just a remote to control uTorrent running on desktops or laptops.
The company said:
Like any software company, we know a mobile experience is really important to our users.
Bittorrent added that they do not currently have an ETA for the release of this app.
The company is also working on a version of uTorrent for Linux. It already has versions for Windows and Mac.
It is not clear how useful a torrent client would be on a smartphone looking at the expensive mobile internet plans we all have. It is also not clear how much strain it would put on the device and how quickly it would kill the battery! But it would be a good app to have on a Tablet PC.
