What is the Windows Store uTorrent Client app?
Torrent Remote app for the Windows Store allows you to connect remotely to any computer running the uTorrent program.
For more information about uTorrent, see here: http://www.utorrent.com/
What can I do with it?
When connected remotely with the Torrent Remote app, you are able to view all of your torrent jobs that are running on the remote computer. It is possible to view jobs by their label or status (downloaded, completed, etc). Each job in the list has the capability to be controlled - i.e. you are able to start, stop, pause, and remove torrent jobs using the Torrent Remote app. You can also add brand new torrent jobs from either a .torrent file on your local computer, or a torrent file URL or magnet link.
Any of these actions will occur at the remote end - meaning you can use the Torrent Remote app like it were a remote control for your computer running the uTorrent program.
What does this mean for me?
In order for all of this functionality to work, the uTorrent program provides a feature called the Web UI. This is a small web service/API which allows third-parties to connect to it over the Internet (or on a local network, too!)
Unfortunately, however it does require a little bit of setting up from you, the end user. But that's not to worry, it isn't hard at all! Just follow the links below to get started setting up your Web UI connection so you can use it with the Torrent Remote app for the Windows Store!
