We have released a proxy server application for Windows, which allows you to set up a "gateway computer" that accepts incoming connections and forwards them to your mobile. It is mainly meant for testing and doing research but some of you may benefit from using it for just downloading. It is available on the Download page.

SymTorrent 1.30 is released. This is a major update, we've fixed and added several things so make sure you update your version. SymTorrent has become much more stable and efficient. One of the changes is that from now on, SymTorrent will be available in two different installable versions. For everyday usage you should download SymTorrent without the built-in tracker, for it saves you some memory and disk space. More significant changes are as follows (for the complete list check out the release notes).
End game algorithm has been implemented, downloading shouldn't slow down at the end. When a torrent enters end game, an "EG" label is shown next to the download percentage in the torrent's status view.
In the torrent status view the total number of peers is displayed (in brackets) along with the number of connected peers.
The settings menu has been divided into a couple of subparts (separate page for general, proxy, and tracker settings).
Piece hashes are checked when a new torrent is opened. If matching files are found in the target directory then those parts of torrent won't be downloaded again.
"SymTorrent disconnects good peers after handshake" MAJOR BUG fixed (apparently it caused that SymTorrent disconnected from around the third of the peers right after handshake).

SymTorrent 1.26 is released. We have managed to track some major bugs which could have been responsible for slowdowns and other tranfer-related problems. In addition, a few more optimalizations have been made on the protocol level and in the tracker's engine. We highly recommend to update your version!

SymTorrent 1.21 is released. The new version features a built-in tracker, proxy support and a couple of bugfixes. On the protocol level, SymTorrent now supports the multi-tracker extension. We are going to add further details on the use of the proxy and the tracker in the near future.

SymTorrent 1.12 is released. I've fixed an ugly bug which caused a crash on some older S60 2nd edition devices when the user entered the "Details view".
From now on, autostarting SymTorrent works on 2nd edition devices (.torrent file extension is associated with SymTorrent). You can select a .torrent file in your browser or file manager and the application is started automatically. This feature is still not supported on 3rd edition devices due to the strict security restrictions.

Some of you have reported that SymTorrent doesn't reload the torrents after a crash. This is because in the current version the state of the torrents are saved only if you exit the application manually. It means that if the application crashes, the state of the torrents won't be saved at all. In the next version, SymTorrent will save state in every X minutes so you will only lose the data downloaded in the last X minutes.

The first version of SymTorrent is available for download. It has been under development since the beginnning of 2006. We have tested it on Nokia N80 and N91 smartphones but it can still contain some untracked bugs, so any feedback is appreciated. We are going to add a forum to the website later but you can contact me directly.
