All talk of the legality of sharing via BitTorrent aside, the peer-to-peer networks based around torrent files have quickly become one of the most popular ways to share large files. If you are one of the many using BitTorrent files for perfectly legal reasons, you might be happy to know about the newly release uTorrent app for Android. The app links into your uTorrent desktop client to remotely start, stop, and pause downloads and check current status. Though those remote capabilities are pretty nice, the real reason you’ll want uTorrent is for the ability to add torrents found on your phone to your desktop queue.

You will need Android 2.1 or higher to get it, but you can find it in the Android Market now. This is only an alpha build, so expect future updates to bring much more.
