BitTorrent for iOS

This is one of the best BitTorrent clients available for non and jailbroken mobile devices, and it is still actively being developed. With this native iOS app, you can easily download and manage torrent files on your iPhone or iPad. iTorrent fully integrates with the iOS system, allowing you to open magnet links from any browser, including Safari mobile.

iTorrent will automatically add any torrent file you start downloading to the download list. From this list, you can manage the download by deleting the file, pausing it, or viewing details such as the file's hash, creation date, comments, and the app name used to create it.

One of the best features of iTorrent is background downloading and support for sequential downloads, which allows you to watch movies in VLC while the torrent is being downloaded. This makes it easy to watch movies on the go without having to wait for the download to finish.

Warning: Downloading torrents can be risky, as it is often used to distribute pirated or illegal content. Additionally, downloading and sharing copyrighted material without permission is against the law in many countries. Therefore, it is important to use trusted sources.
