★ Gear Shift now has a dedicated G+ community for bug postings, beta test releases, and detailed change logs. See the 'About' dialog in the app, or follow the link below:
Gear Shift is a remote client for the Transmission BitTorrent application (http://transmissionbt.com)
If the Transmission web interface is enabled, or the daemon is configured, Gear Shift can connect to it, so you can start managing your torrents.
Gear Shift is still a beta (and since it is my first Android app, there are bound to be some bugs hiding behind odd corners), however the following features are currently supported:
✓ Multiple profiles (if you have more than one transmission daemon)
✓ Torrent list (with an option to only update the active torrents)
✓ Adding of torrents and magnet links. Clicking on a torrent file from the Downloads app or a file browser, or clicking on a magnet link from the browser will open the Add dialog.
✓ Alternate speed - "turtle mode"
✓ Torrent pause/resume/remove/move. Moving a torrent requires that you set up "Download Directories" in the Transmission profile.
✓ Sorting, filtering, stats
✓ Torrent details, with limit configurations per torrent, specific files for exclusion, tracker manipulation and per-file priority settings
✓ Tablet interface (tested on the Nexus 7)
FYI: The two torrents in the screenshots are "Indie Game: The Movie" from the Humble Bundle, and a Raspbian image for the Raspberry PI
If you notice a bug, please write to me (details are available in the About dialog), so I may try to fix it.
