Bar Magnet allows you to send torrent files and magnet links to remote or local torrent server front-ends just by opening them. This takes all of the hassle out of using a remote server for your torrenting.

Currently supported server front-ends:
  • µTorrent
  • Transmission
  • Deluge
  • qBittorrent
  • BitTorrent
  • Vuze, with the help of the Web Remote UI Plugin.
  • rTorrent, with the help of the ruTorrent front-end, and, to be notified of downloads finishing, you'll need this PHP file I wrote, place it
What's New
Version 1.0:
  • Added full support for Synology Download Station.
  • Moved the "Check For Updates" button back to Preferences.
Requirements
  • Intel, 64-bit processor
  • OS X 10.7 or later
  • A supported torrenting application with remote access enabled.
  • If you have multiple torrent/magnet handling applications then I definitely recommend RCDefaultApp to be able to change the default easily.

Its good but fails to save preference so every time it launches says it cannot connect to server until I re-enter the information.

Preferences are saved when the application successfully exits. If you specifically click Quit after entering the Preferences, are they there at the next startup?

Please, anyone with similar issues, send me a bug report to carlo.tortorella@me.com, I am currently unable to reproduce this issue myself and I would really like to get it fixed.

HI, if you tell me how to do a bug report I will do it. Because its quite frustrating. Will work fine a couple of times then boom, error you have to re input all the details.

Utterly random, I don't know why it does it because it does not appear to have crashed.

Wow! - never before have experienced a same-day bug fix and feature implementation. Now it works as a charm, perfectly as it should!!
And indeed it's a wonderful time saver for us that have a remote torrent downloader running somewhere.
(notifications are not always coming up, however - approx 1 of each 3 notifications is being lost)

That's odd, do you have generally high ping times for your remote server?

Mmm... it's not capturing the magnet links for me. They still open on my local Transmission app.
I already had Transmission on my Mac, configured as default app for magnet links. But I also have a remote Mac with Transmission running at home, with web UI enabled.
Ideal behaviour: Upon launch of BarMagnet, it should become the default app for magnet links and for opening torrent files. Upon quit, it should restore the defaults to what they were before.
That way when I want local, I just quit BarMagnet; and when I want remote, I just open it.

Thank you for your input, I just implemented that feature and it will be available in the next update.

In the future, please email me when you have a feature suggestion, Bar Magnet is still in beta and nothing is finalised, so there's a very good chance I might add it. Leaving mediocre ratings really helps nobody.

Problems solved. new version works like a gem. Great for all this who use a separate download system.

A 4.5 score and not 5 because there ought to be 1 more refinement: the price of 20 dollars is way to high. Should be more like $9,95

Apologies, I listed it as "Demo", but a staff member filled in the price, which I left blank, with "20", since they can't have demos of shareware.

If Bar Magnet ever changes in the future, it'll become shareware or an indefinite trial, like Winrar, but for now it's listed as Freeware since there are no safeguards at all.

Vuze support is on the way for the HTML UI and Remote UI, it won't be arriving any time soon, but it's definitely in the pipeline.

Does not work. Prefs are not saved. Nothing happens.

No developer website.

Terribly sorry about that, I really shouldn't have launched until the site was done, please do visit again, as it is now online, and lodge a support request so I can get to the bottom of your issue.
