With a few easy steps BitTorrent users can circumvent Apple’s maddening ban on BitTorrent clients in the app store with just a few easy steps.
1. Download and Install Filer Lite – This free version of the app lets you manage, view, share, and download files on the go.
3. Find Torrent URL – Has to be from a public tracker. Terrific doesn’t yet support trackers that require user authentication beyond what can be passed in a URL.
4. Press “Get”
5. Wait for “Finished” Email – Once your download is finished you’ll receive an e-mail notification with a direct link to your file.
6. Open Filer, Download File – Open direct link in Filer to begin downloading.
