Torrent downloads are supposed to be simpler but for those people who find it harder to use all the bittorrent clients and stuff, There is a simpler way now. Download the small sized .torrent file, Upload it to a web service and you get the file you want straight in your Dropbox account then you can Sync your Dropbox with your PC to download it on the PC. How smart is that? very much indeed!
A new Web service namely Boxopus lets you download your torrent files directly to your Dropbox account, Much like the Sidecloud service which lets you download files straight to your Dropbox.. But it has limitations and doesn’t support Torrents.
Boxopus is currently in its Beta and is offering Unlimited Traffic for Free.. which they plan to make a paid service later on when they are out of Beta. As you know Dropbox is also a Free Cloud storage space provider which offers a decent startup storage space. (Haven’t signed up?
