    in previous versions of iOS clicking a torrent link would bring you to a white page with a link to upload the torrent to your Dropbox account (which allows you to start downloads on your home machine from your iPad). Since I began using ios5 when I click a torrent file the white page comes up but it lists the torrent as a php file as if it doesnt know how to handle it and the Open With option no longer seems to work

    Anyone else experience this issue or know of another way to add torrent files to my Dropbox via iPad?

    you could use a VNC app to remote access your home computer and start the download like that

    Just guessing here but maybe once DropBox is updated for iOS 5 the option to send it to DropBox will once again be there.
