Torrenting on OS X

I love OS X. But I hate that there is no perfect bit torrent application out there (yet). Nothing I've come across is at the level of uTorrent on Windows. Sure, Transmission comes close and is a fantastic client, but it just is not rich enough to fulfill my needs.

So what's my solution? I have a Windows server dedicated to running uTorrent. I am sure there are others out there that do something similar. To those people: are you sick of the uTorrent WebUI and the fact that it only runs on Firefox, and badly at that? Me too.

iTorrent OS X

iTorrent OS X will be a Leopard-only GUI for talking to your remote uTorrent. Provide a WebUI link and authentication details, and you'll have a fully functioning application that will behave like a native torrent client.

Mockup Interface

Preliminary mockup (ignore the title on the app):

iTorrent OS X GUI

Planned Features

  • Drag and drop support for .torrent files
  • Default .torrent handler
  • Torrent search
  • Smarter filters (combine custom labels and status labels)
  • Floating progress bars
  • Guest-only mode for just checking up on the progress of torrents
  • Apple Remote support (cuz what the hell I can)

This means that if you want control over RSS features locally, you'll be able to use TVShows, an absolutely brilliant application and bypass the clunky uTorrent RSS features altogether.

Limitations

This will be riding on the WebUI API so it will only be able to do what uTorrent developers expose.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
