There are millions of internet users those prefer to use torrent clients and services in order to download their desired content. With majority of world wide web regular users will generally have a basic or a premium Dropbox account, which is preferred as the best solution for storing files, media in the cloud that can be then synchronized across multiple devices or machines. Today we are here to share you with an amazing way on how you can do unexpected things with your Dropbox. Details after this jump!
Here is all about the service that offers all of the advantages which are associated with downloading with torrents, but it also infused with Dropbox storage capabilities, means that all downloadable torrent content would be immediately pushed across all machines and devices that are associated with the Dropbox account?
Yes! you heard it right, the new Boxopus service is out that exclusively offer that exact functionality to torrent lovers and Dropbox users as well.
Boxopus is currently in a beta stage and is currently allowing new registrations from interested users through either a direct account registration or by using social credentials from services such as Twitter, Facebook or Dropbox. This software comes as unique one and built around some fancy Dropbox API hacks that allows any user to feed a torrent file into the web-based service and the selected contents of the file remotely downloaded into the attached Dropbox account.
The Boxopus service allows Dropbox members to download any torrent file from any location and have it pushed across multiple devices along with no longer requiring an actual BitTorrent client to download this content.
The project behind the Boxopus utility is relatively simple and involves a backend process that initailly downloads the torrent file to the Boxopus developers hard drive, which afterwords moved to their own Dropbox account before finally being moved across to the user’s personal Dropbox folder when the download is finally complete. After moving finishes, a new Boxopus folder will be created in the Dropbox Apps directory that will contain all future torrent files that have been downloaded using the service. Final stage of Boxopus, users will be able to benefit from unlimited download traffic, but will ultimately be blocked when the service goes live, with additional traffic needs to be purchased.
According to TorrentFreak, how long Boxopus will be around for. If Dropbox disapproves for whatever reason, there’s nothing stopping it from blacklisting Boxopus and disabling access to its API. That said, a number of torrent sites have already integrated one-click support.
A service like this will be the best to be popular with those users who regularly use to torrent downloading. Bringing the ability to quickly download torrents with only one or two clicks is such a valuable tool, with all the content being available in multiple computers, smartphones and tablets throght Dropbox only adding to the value of Boxopus service is imminent.
The beta version of Boxopus is currently free, but TorrentFreak reports that some limitations may be implemented once the service is finalised.
