  1. It is really a nice info that we can download files via torrents using our mobile… but i am sure that it will consumes lots of battery power…

  2. No matter whether I’m using my phone or my tablet, no matter what torrent app I’m using (tried three now), I can’t upload even a single byte. I download just fine, and on either my laptop or desktop, I don’t have a problem, but I’ve no luck sharing from the android platform. Anyone else have this problem?

      Most mobile carriers will not have many ports open for security reasons, so others would not be able to connect and download from you… On a Wifi network it should work but I doubt these android clients have UPnP support so you would have to work out what port they use and forward that port on your router.
