Installous which is one of the best app for jailbroken iPhone (iOS devices), got an update and now Installous 5 is ready to download and you can install on your iOS device. If you have not upgraded to latest version of Installous yet, you will be seeing a message like this when you will open Installous:
” We have released an update for Installous in Cydia. It includes BitTorrent downloading support and a few other improvements. Please update”.
There are many noticable changes in Installous 5 and here are some of them:
Installous 5 not supports .magnet links. Not, it supports torrent downloading, and probably one of the few apps which works smoothly with torrent downloading on iPhone. I will post a step by step tutorial later. It will also seed the torrent at the time of downloading and it will work in wi-fi only. Also, you can pause and resume the torrent downloading, which will be very handy for users.
