Torrents have become a normal part of my life, and as such, I have been looking for a better way to get things to my device, and it seems only a blast from the past can deliver. This torrent downloader has been out since Windows Mobile was in the 5.0 stage, and has improved to a more useful, faster software. The application allows you to download torrents directly into your device, and if you live in the US of A, that means no risk of going to jail.
