Awesome app when on the go, no need to make notes of torrents you want while you’re not at home. Just open up Transdroid and search for the torrent and get it started.
Ease of Use:
This app is easy to use but can be moderately difficult to set up. You need to get the IP address of your computer and go into your router settings and open the port Transdroid is going to use.
I see this app being used in everyday lives by prosumers who are currently using torrents, and possibly get others who are not into torrents interested. A good beginners guide to torrents can be found on LifeHacker.
