Here's an awesome torrent managing and searching Android app that's worth it's weight in gold - and even better, it's totally free (ad supported). Imagine the day when you'll be able to use the camera on your phone to scan those bar codes you see at the store on the backs of Video Games, DVD's, Music CD's etc., searching to see if there's an existing torrent for it, and if so adding it to your home Torrent downloading program, all while you're right there at the store?
Well. that day has arrived GeekDroppers, and it's all possible by an Android app that made the GeekDrop "Cool As Sh*t list" named Transdroid.
There are a couple of pre-requisites before you can begin using Transdroid though. You hopefully already know how to download torrents, (and need to have uTorrent installed on your computer), if not view our tutorial on it right here: How To Download Torrents. You'll also need to install or already have installed some sort of scanning app on your Android. Our favorite is QR Droid. So let's show you how to use Transdroid, shall we? Follow along below ...
You can then simply scan any barcode out there, just as an example, say you are at Best Buy and you see the game named "Mighty Morphin Yu-Gi-Oh Cabbage Patch Troll Lego Kids" and want to see if there's a torrent available for it. Just scan the bar code on the package, Transdroid will do a torrent search for it, and return any matching results, if any. You can then choose if you want to add that torrent (or torrents) to your home uTorrent server. If you do, and there are seeds, and so on, chances are you'll have it sitting there waiting to be played once you get home. Srsly, how slick is that??
Of course, you don't HAVE to use the scanner, doing a regular search you can also add any torrent matches to your home uTorrent server as well. There's also a built-in RSS reader that you can add your favorite Torrent newsfeeds to. Now do ya see why Transdroid made the GeekDrop "Cool As Sh*t" list?
