Peer-to-peer file sharing via BitTorrent is the most popular method of freely sharing files on the Internet, including: video, audio, games, software, media, and data. According to Wikipedia, "In the BitTorrent file distribution system, a torrent file is a computer file that contains metadata about files and folders to be distributed, and usually also a list of the network locations of trackers, which are computers that help participants in the system find each other and form efficient distribution groups called swarms. A torrent file does not contain the content to be distributed; it only contains information about those files, such as their names, sizes, folder structure, and cryptographic hash values for verifying file integrity."
Enormously efficient for distributing large files, more than 50% of all upstream traffic in North America is attributed to P2P. With MagnetPro, users of iDevices can wirelessly find available files on a torrent search engine, such as BitSnoop, and then immediately download that file through the server dedicated to the MagnetPro app. After download, the app's built-in media player offers 1080p, Hi-Res playback.
"Featuring very fast download speeds and a high resolution media player, MagnetPro is the logical choice for file sharing on iOS," commented James Jeong of ItBacc.
MagnetPro 1.4 is $2.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Utilities category.
