Whirlpool 1.0-1

Download torrents remotely from Safari

Stumbled on this one by accident; was looking at new releases today and pulled up a stupid "toy" app called "Red Button" and the description for this app was under the description for Red Button. Anyway, after looking at the screen shots, I found the name and the rest is history...

This is such a cool app for people that Torrent a lot and have Transmission (or are willing to get it)!

A Mobile Safari plug-in that recognizes BitTorrent files and downloads them on your home PC or Mac running the Transmission client. Easy to set up and it works flawlessly. Seems like it was kind of hidden so I posted this free app hear to gain some additional exposure.


Whirlpool 1.0-1

Also available in Cydia

*Shows up as configurable Preference within your Settings Application, so if your addicted to adding preferences to your settings like I am, this is a must have. Nice "whirlpool" looking blue and white (29x29) icon as well.

Good point...I think you might be SOL; however, I couldn't find any conclusive info to verify or deny this not working (or finding/using an alternate source) for Windows users

Hi, I'm the guy who wrote this. I'm really happy to see it taking off even with me being lazy with promoting it ;)

Indeed this version works only with Transmission, but I know a lot of people can't use it or just like uTorrent better, so I'm actively working on adding support for that in the upcoming version. Keep an eye out for updates in the next few days!

That would work for utorrent for windows, but im pretty sure it would be impossible to do with utorrent for mac right now as the latest beta does not have a webui which is crucial in making this work. Alternatively, TorrenTRAK is a great cydia app too that allows you to fully control transmission quickly from your idvice.

It allows you to click torrent links from your iphone and transmission from your mac will download the file. You can also remote control your other transmission downloads.

@steve - just fire up Safari and visit your favorite tracker, click a torrent download link and the UI will pop up.

BTW, if there are any other features or improvements you would like to see, either post a request here or drop me a line at snes dot iphone at gmail.

You still need to enter the address and port in the Settings pane so that the app knows where to send the data. And yeah, you need to have Transmission running already, can't start it remotely ;)

The IP address or hostname of the Mac that is running transmission :)

Hi Supernes,
Your little plugin is one hell of a good idea, but as a owner of an Ipad I encounter a major drawback, It seems like the plugin works fine as it pops up each time I click on a torrent link, but there's no setting pane of any sort, so I cannot configure my transmission IP and port. Can you look at it please?, cause the idea is really tempting.

Well, in my mind, the purpose of this app is to manage a transmission daemon from said: everywhere.
I've already tried Torrentulla (witch works great) but I really won't bother clogging the sparce iPad flash mem for stocking torrent witch will, in the end be transfered to my NAS
iPad is not a potentially good torrent box, but it's an incredible remote for virtually everything

But I see your point ;)
