Transmission is a powerful yet extremely lightweight and fast BitTorrent client. It has the features you want from a BitTorrent client: encryption, a web interface, peer exchange, magnet links, DHT, µTP, UPnP and NAT-PMP port forwarding, webseed support, tracker editing, global and per-torrent speed limits, and more.
This application is a port of the Transmission daemon for Android complemented with the following features:
⚫ Manage downloads directly from the application.
⚫ Multiple watch/download directories.
⚫ Support for HTTP(S)/SOCKS proxy.
⚫ WiFi/Ethernet mode to save on mobile data.
⚫ Allowed WiFi SSIDs - if configured, the service is running only if connected to the specified networks.
⚫ Keep CPU/WiFi awake to complete all downloads before the device goes to sleep.
⚫ Sequential download allows playing media files while downloading.
⚫ Open .torrent files or torrent/magnet URLs and stream the selected files to a media player.
⚫ Builtin UPnP MediaServer. Download media files to a phone/tablet/TV-box and watch on a TV or another UPnP compatible media player connected to the same network.
⚫ M3U playlists for all torrents/folders containing audio/video files. To get the playlist URL - long click on the play icon.
⚫ Alternative web interface - Transmission Web Control
The daemon is running as a background service. To communicate with the daemon remotely you may either use the built-in WEB interface or any Transmission remote of choice.

Known issues and limitations:
⚫ The daemon may hang for a few minutes when preallocating space for large files. See details here - https://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/1753. To avoid this issue it's recommended to use a Linux native file system, for example ext4. Migration to NTFS may also help, but it depends on the system.
⚫ The "Allowed WiFi SSIDs" feature requires the location permissions to be granted, otherwise the application will not be able to get the WiFi SSID.
