As useless as the others said it was. Doesn't tell you where it places the torrent file. Searched Spotlight for it and couldn't find it.

I'm convinced that it does not work at all (at least for Mountain Lion) I did the same thing as qka, except that it never said Running, when dropping a file on the (quit/not open) app in Dock the Task Completed window opens instantaneously (absolutely no time delay, not even a millisecond) No file is created on my computer. The fact that the app opens so quickly on my old comp means that its not even trying to do anything.

Works, but doesn't remember the entire file name; you have to enter most of it yourself.

yeah sorry i should have explained its use a bit better. the "task completed" message is from platypus, which is what i used to wrap my script into an app - once you get that message, you can't do anything except quit. as flu33 says, you have to start MakeTorrent in the first place by dragging something onto it, so it's useful to keep MakeTorrent in the dock (drag it there while it's not running). sorry this isn't ideal, but i think i know how i can improve it for a newer version :)

Hippy Dave, Help! I can't get this to work!! I did the following: 1) Drag the Make Torrent app into the dock 2) Drag folder I want a .torrent file for on to the Make Torrent icon in dock 3) Get Make Torrent window with progress bar that first says "Running" then "Task Completed". However, progress bar stays animated, not a normal completed look. 4) Click "Quit" button in that window. make Torrent quits. 5) Cannot find .torrent file. Use Spotlight to look for file with ".torrent" created today. No luck. Not in same folder as source folder. Not on Desktop. Tried same procedure with just a file. Same results. I know documentation can be a pain, but a simple "how to" would be a Good Thing. It need not be any more detailed than my outline above. Thanks for the effort. This looks like it could be just what I need, if I get it to work.

Doesn't do diddly-squat for me. Drag a file or folder on it's icon and it always says "Task completed" , even double-clicking the icon for it. No location prompt, no tracker details, nothing but "Task completed" Kind of strange for the tool to say it's completed when it hasn't done a thing. MacIntel running 10.4.9 and all the latest Apple updates. Great idea but useless at the moment, so no rating yet.
