How To Download Torrent Files On iPhone / iPad [ No Jailbreak ]

Reports shown that Apple is the biggest brand in the world in 2011, overpassing companies like Microsoft, Google and IBM. Apple were first know for their line of Mac computers, nowadays we all know Apple as being the company that develops the awesome iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices. As you probably know, Apple’s policy is very restrictive when it comes to piracy.

Talking about a restrictive policy, Apple have hated the BitTorrent clients since the beginning, so they started to block all of them. But the limitations imposed by Apple are removed once you are jailbreak your device, as you can install torrent clients from Cydia, then everything is looking like on your computer.

But some of the iPhone users don’t want to jailbreak their devices, but would love to be able to download and use torrents. If you are one of them, we have good news for you, as it seems there’s a way of tricking Apple’s limitations without jailbreaking your device, and the even better news is that is free.

Let’s see what you have to do in order to be able to download torrents on your iPhone or iPad:

  1. You will need an application called Filer, which you can grab from here. Filer will help you manage and download different files, but the Lite version will only let you store 7 files. If you are looking for more, you can buy Filer full version for $3.99.

  2. Now you will have to sign up to www.torrific.com. Go here and provide an email and password. Use a real email address, as you will have to confirm the sign up and you will also need it later. Torrific.com will allow you to download torrents without a torrent client, so with no torrent client to block, you will be able to go around Apple restrictions.

  3. Now open your web browser from your computer and find the torrent you want to download. Then copy the torrent URL and paste it in the Torrific.com field, then click the “Get” button. Now another screen should appear, and you will have to hit the “Initiate BitTorrent Transmission.” Now the torrent file you want to get is downloading. You can close the web browser or even shut down your computer, as the torrent files are downloaded in on Torrific servers.

  4. After the torrent file is downloaded, you will receive an email containing a direct link to the downloaded file. Now grab your iPhone or iPad, go to your email and copy the link you received from Torrific. N

  5. ow open Filer application and paste the link in there. Now the download will begin and your file will be downloaded from the direct link you provided.

Since most of the files you are downloading from torrents are pretty large, we recommend you WiFi or even 3G connection for downloading such files. If the files you are downloading are large, you will also have to make sure that you have enough storage space on your iPhone or iPad. To check this either connect the device to your computer and the iTunes will show how much storage space you have left, or you can go to “System Settings,” then go to “General” and at the “About” option.
