As promised, developer Finebits has launched the Xbox One version of its Torrex Pro BitTorrent UWP (Universal Windows Platform) app for $7.99 after a few weeks of beta testing. It has also launched its own web browser for the console for Torrex Pro users to download those files.
The app has been optimized to work well with the Xbox One controller. Here's a quick rundown of its features:
- Simple and intuitive interface.
- Smart adaptive design.
- Fully universal application (UWP).
- Background mode support.
- Ability to play media files immediately after the start of downloading (streaming).
- Built-in viewer for music, video, images and text files.
- Plays MKV formatted video files.
- Configurable content view (tiles, table, tree) and various color themes.
- Download priority management, filters.
- Possibility to stop seeding upon completing a download.
- Connection encryption.
- Download speed control.
As we have mentioned before, users will need to add the torrent files via an external USB drive rather than through the Edge browser. However, FineBits also has its own browser that can hand-off torrent files to Torrex when on the Xbox One. The app is just called 'Internet Browser' for now, but the name will be changed at a later date.
