    Sorry if this question has been asked but what I'm looking for is this:

    A bitorrent client that will download directly to the phone (no pc required) and can scan barcodes to search/start downloads. I've seen apps that can do one or the other but it seems like the ultimate would be to do both.

    Anything like that out there? A pipe dream still? Sounds like a hell of an idea for a dev out there...

    There's dTor, but it is $4.99.

    Don't know how it is or if there are others

    Definitely, the best Torrent app out there is Transdroid. I love this one.

    Transdroid is only for remote!

    I suggest aDownload. It is still buggy a littlebit and consumes most of the processing power of the phone but still a well-structured, working free app. However, no barcode reader inside..

    All the others got limitations such as speed or downloadable number of files.

    If anyone got a better suggestion will be welcomed!

    I don't think that there are any good bit torrent clients for Android as most of them just control your downloads from your PC.

    Ive found that aBTC works ok for a standalone droid app. No barcode scanner tho, but its free.

    I use swarm and it works as well as can be expected. Not sure if it scans bar code, but it can be used in conjunction with torrent-fu which does scan (same dev). I have gotten quick replies from dev with any questions. My 2

    Check out aDownloader. It's free with no speed limits and you can dowload wherever you want.

    Good morning,
    Does these torrent clients do any caching to minimize writes on flash storage? As you know, flash storage only has a limited number of writes before failure.
    Thanks,
