How To Download Torrents On Android Smartphone or Tablet

We have been receiving several emails about how to download the course on mobile after downloading the torrent file from our site, here you go,

If you’re looking to download large files, there’s no better way to do it than downloading torrents.

The process is decentralized, meaning there’s no server hosting the files, just tens or hundreds of different users sharing little bits at a time.

For most people, torrenting means using a PC or laptop to locate and download torrent files, but you don’t need to use a PC for torrents.

You can use a portable device like a smartphone or tablet to download torrent files directly to your device, without needing any other equipment. Here’s how to do it.

Installing a BitTorrent Client on Android

You’ll need to install a BitTorrent client app on your Android device first. There are plenty to choose from, including several from BitTorrent Inc, the company behind the BitTorrent protocol itself.

One simple Android BitTorrent client available for you to use is Flud. Unlike some of the other BitTorrent apps, this client is free to use with no limitations. It’s ad supported, although an ad-free Flud is available for a small cost.

  • To start, download and install the Flud client on your Android device from the Google Play Store. Flud will ask you for permission to use your device storage when you first open it, so allow this by pressing the Give Permission button.
  • Flud will ask you for permission to use your usage data for statistics and for permission to use this information to offer tailored ads. If you’re fine with this, press Accept and Continue. If you’re not, press each of the checkboxes to revoke permission before pressing Accept and Continue.
  • You’ll be asked whether you want to limit Flud torrent downloads and upload to WiFi connections, rather than using your mobile data connection. By default, the checkbox to restrict to WiFi-only is enabled, so unless you want to change this, press the OK button. If you want to use your mobile data, press to uncheck the Torrents will download and upload if WiFi is connected checkbox, then press OK to confirm.

Confirming your WiFi settings will bring you to the main Flud interface. The Flud app is simple to navigate, with torrents listed in categories, including All (for all torrents), Queued (for torrents that are in a queue to begin downloading or uploading), and Finished (for torrents that have finished downloading).

If you need to change the WiFi-only setting you selected, press the menu icon in the top-right of the Flud app. From there, press Settings > Power management, then press to uncheck the WiFi only checkbox.

Downloading Torrents on Android Using Flud

Flud supports you download torrents using a torrent file, either as a local file or from an HTTP link, or as a magnet link which hides the origins of the file. You’ll need to use one of these methods to begin any torrent downloads.

  • To begin downloading torrents using a locally-saved torrent file, press the + button in the bottom-left of the Flud interface. Navigate your Android device’s storage using the on-screen menu, then tap on a local torrent file to add it to Flud. (the udemy course file you downloaded)
  • If you want to add a torrent using a URL or magnet link instead, press the magnet icon in the top menu bar. If a suitable link is already in your clipboard, Flud should paste it in automatically, but you’ll need to add it manually if it doesn’t. Press OK to add the torrent to Flud at this point, or Cancel to cancel the download.
  • In the Add torrent menu, confirm where you want to save the file under the Storage Path section. You can view the files included in your torrent by pressing the Files tab. When you’re ready to add the torrent and begin downloading, press the + button in the top-right.
  • Once added, your BitTorrent download will begin automatically, appearing as a separate entry in the All tab. This gives you a quick overview of how the torrent is progressing, with a progress bar and current download and upload speeds.
