SymTorrent is the first and currently only BitTorrent client for Symbian OS. It supports downloading multiple torrents at the same time, is capable of both downloading and uploading and can save the status of your unfinished torrents, so you can resume the downloads after restarting the application. You can also check the status of each file inside a torrent along with several other statistics and properties during download. Torrents can be started from the browser, and selecting the files that are downloaded from multi file torrents is also supported.

Currently, SymTorrent is available for mobile devices based on the S60 Platform 3rd and 5th edition. Supported phone models include all recently released Symbian OS based phones, such as the Nokia Nseries/Eseries devices, phones with touch UI and many older models as well. Should you have a Java ME enabled phone, check out MobTorrent our Java based mobile BitTorrent client.

SymTorrent is free and open source software. It is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License. We highly appreciate any help. If you like this software and want to support the development of SymTorrent by making a donation, you can do so via PayPal.

After a long delay and a sudden burst of nostalgia, I updated SymTorrent to support Symbian^3 SDK and fixed the memory card selection bug so that all drives are visible. Get SymTorrent 1.51.
I can't promise that there will be more updates but anyhow, if you find a bug or want a new feature, please submit it on GitHub.

I have created a self-signed version (similar to the earlier releases). It will display a couple of warning popups during installation ("Not trusted application", "The application may not be compatible with the phone", etc.), but it should work on all Symbian devices.

Download SymTorrent 1.50

I have just received an email from Ovi Store stating that since "SymTorrent app enables the illegal distribution of music in the form of torrents", it will be removed from Ovi. So that's it. No comment. Btw, the app was download more than 26500 times in less than 2 weeks. I will create a separate sis installer, similar to the previous versions, sometime in the following weeks.
