uTorrent Remote Beta app goes live at the Windows Phone Store

uTorrent Remote Beta app goes live at the Windows Phone Store
Torrent apps support has always been one of the huge Android advantages for many users of Google's mobile operating system, since others, like the App Store, are frowning at them and not getting them approved as a matter of copyright principle.

That is why clients like the popular uTorrent are only present with something called the Remote app, which manages the torrent client running on your personal computer, no matter where you are. 

The Windows Phone Store has apparently followed the same path as iOS, just approving the uTorrent remote app on the verge of launching WP8 with the barrage of Lumia and HTC devices hitting the street as soon as next week.

The new uTorrent Remote Beta for Windows Phone sports the following features:

Better something than nothing, of course, especially with the part where you can send torrent files on your computer for direct playback on your WP device while lounging on the couch in the other room. Hit the download link below if you are in a desperate need of a uTorrent remote app for your Windows Phone.

Downloading torrents on a android device? Lucky for you guys your phones have such great battery life you can afford another power sucker lol. This app will do just fine for me. p.s. nice to see someone at PA watching the wp universe, even as late as this...

My phone has a big battery (3100mah). I can do torrent for 24hrs without charging, so i dont mind doing that power-sucking activity.

My tablet has a bigger battery (5000mah) and poor battery life (its on ics) so i am rather sceptical. why would you do it even if it used no battery when you have a perfectly good pc at home capable of higher speeds?

Doing torrent over android is convenient and maximizes my unli data plan.. Also,i dont like leaving appliances on when i go to work. Cellphones/tablets are supposed to be always on so it's more practical to use them for torrent.

Well not every country is rich enough to be able to pay for a game, and i dont think they should be left in the dark also. Untill big companies decide to make their games cheaper in second and third world countries most people sadly have no choice but to use torrents. But i guess most americans wouldnt understand, they have their first wourld problems...
