    Wink Seeding on Android phone?

    Well, the inevitable happened. Finally ditched my cable provider 100%.

    I ONLY have mobile phone internet now and I'm quite happy doing so.

    Now, the issue. I apologise if this has been addressed elsewhere.

    I can seed using my existing laptop and my phone as a hotspot, but as we know, cellphone providers tend to throttle once we have reached our allotted Giggery per month (unlimited my arse). So ... I've tried different Android torrent apps and can't seem to seed using my phone directly unless hotspotted to a slow-arse PC or my laptop with Windozing...

    Is there an EASY way to seed on an Android phone? Have I just not found the right torrent app yet? I've tried uTorrent, TorrDoid and the ubiquitous BitTorrent from Android, a few others and none of them seem to work.

    Ideas? Thanks in advance, Y! family ...

    Get yourself a dirt cheap seedbox package from US$2-$3 a month. Far better than relying on expensive data charges on mobile internet in order to seed.

    You'll be able to control it via your browser on your phone. Some packages even have dedicated Android apps for remote control.

    You'll still have to rely on mobile internet to get your files to and from the seedbox server though.
