Looking for an application that communicates with a seedbox and download torrents on your iOS device? iTransmission 2 is a decent, free and an open-source BitTorrent client for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch that lets you download a torrent right on your device with an ease. This powerful BitTorrent app can be installed on any iOS jailbroken device and once you’ve installed iTransmission, the app will take you to the main screen showing all active and paused torrents detailing upload & download speeds in addition to the state of your connection.

Under the preference pane of the iTransmission 2 settings, you’ll find a web interface from where you can set whether or not you’d like to use your WiFi network, cellular network, or both. Enabling cellular network may generate significant data charges. We, therefore, recommend you not to enable the cellular network. You can even set your port number and authentication details. Enabling logging, is not required, since it will shorten both Nand and battery life of your iOS device.

    After using IT2 for about a week.. It downloads torrents way faster then IT1, my laptop, and my PC..It has now become my #1 BitTorrent client..It is missing a few features and has a few bugs…but I’m hoping with future updates those bugs with get squashed.

    Here’s how I use it:

    I use iTransmission 2to download my files and once they’re completed I use iFile to move them to my CineXplayer/MusicPlayer/etc

    If you want iTransmission 2 to download files in backround try the tweak called “backrounder” and you’ll be able to multitask without pausing your downloads.
