What does it do?

So you're out and want to check how the torrent downloads you started at home in uTorrent are doing. Fire up Torrid and instantly get a real-time view of your queue. You can start, stop & delete torrents from the queue at your convenience. You can even add new torrents to the queue using a built-in search engine which utilises the very best trackers on the web. All of this in a small, portable application which leaves no traces on your system and is suitable for use straight from a USB drive.

Multi-Server

Torrid allows as many clients as you have installed in as many remote locations as you wish to be configured. Simply install these clients, configure their remote interface and allow the traffic through any relevant firewalls.

Multi-Client

Uniquely, Torrid is designed to support the four main torrent clients used by most people.

Should there be a demand for other clients then these can be easily added to the main engine.

Multi-Tracker

The last thing you want to do when out and about is to start loading up torrent search sites when all you want is a quick, incisive link to a known Linux distro, or other legitimately distributable torrent.

Torrid has a convenient built-in search engine which uses best-of-breed trackers to locate torrents quickly and start them downloading with a simple double-click.

Currently supported sites:

  • KickAss Torrents (KAT)
  • YTS (formerly YIFY)
  • BitSnoop
  • The Pirate Bay
  • RARBG

Further search engines will be added as deemed appropriate.
