uTorrent Remote Manager : Android

uTorrent Remote Manager is new app developed for Android devices to control the torrents downloading on uTorrent.
Previously, we told you about the new features of uTorrent 3.0 Alpha called as Project Falcon and how you can use it’s webUI to control uTorrent downloads from anywhere. Using the webUI one can manage their downloads from a mobile, laptop or any device that can connect to the internet, but would you rather use a webUI or a fully functional app for which you don’t need to enter a web based client.

This new App to control uTorrent downloads via your Android based device is officially developed by BitTorrent and works pretty well. Of course to use this app you’ll need to download and install uTorrent 3.0 Alpha and then you’re all set. By using this uTorrent Remote you can start, stop, pause and even download torrents directly to your phone. You’ll need to login to the remote access feature in uTorrent 3.0 and then you can control your torrents from your phone.

The uTorrent Remote App is available only for Android devices running 2.1 and higher. To set up your phone you’ll first need to go uTorrent 3.0 installed on your home computer and enable web access via Options>Preferences>Web.

The App is available for free all you need is to log in using the username and password you set on your computer for the uTorrent 3.0 and use it to access uTorrent Remote on your Android device. Download uTorrent 3.0 Alpha from web.utorrent.com and you can download the uTorrent Remote Manager App from the Android Market using your device or from the Web Market here.

When I write anywhere, I literally mean anywhere you have access to internet. If you visit the uTorrent page you can see something listed as labs, this is where you’ll find what you’re looking for.

What I’m about to explain here will help you to manage your downloads, list new downloads, pause, stop or delete them. This is still in its Alpha Stage but it works fine gives errors very rarely. This tool is the exact same uTorrent Client with something new known as web remote access, which lets you control the uTorrent Client from anywhere. So below is the procedure, do follow:

  • First you’ll need to go visit the uTorrent Project Falcon page and download the latest Alpha version which is similar to the normal version so installing it shouldn’t be a problem.

  • Once the download is completed you’ll see a new layout for the uTorrent Client and next to the Settings button you can see a new button labelled as uTorrent Web Preferences, click on that.

  • A new Dialog box will open up and now you’ll have to check the Enable uTorrent Web Remote Access and enter a desired Username and Password and hit Apply.

  • Yeah, and that’s pretty much it. Simple isn’t it? Now to access your uTorrent Client from anywhere you need a device that can connect to the internet preferably a GPRS, Wi-Fi enabled phone, Laptop or another Desktop that can connect to the internet.
  • To control uTorrent Remotely you’ll need to go to the following website via your internet capable device: https://web.utorrent.com
  • Once you visit that site, you’ll be asked for a Username and Password(same as you created earlier).

  • After this you’ll be taken to the web based uTorrent Client, which is pretty neat and lets you do almost all the tasks such as add, remove, stop and manage all the downloads running at your home from anywhere.

That’s it folks!! Now you can control your torrents from any mobile device, laptops etc that connects to the internet from anywhere.
