    Is there a way to download torrent files on Ipad?
    I mean generic files to be used on a Mac, not Ipad Apps, it happens that this is my only unlimited data connection. Does it exist a Vuze that works on Ipad?
    Thanks

    Short answer is no, if you have the unlimited package, could always try finding a way to tether the iPad to your computer.

    Apple has a policy of rejecting torrent-related apps.

    I wish they would allow it. I download daily radio shows and hate the whole sync process.

    When I was away for a few days the only way to get something on my ipad was to logmein to my computer at home, grab the torrent, download it, then open mobile me upload it there all in logmein, then grab the mp3 via goodreader...

    Total mess.

    Non-jaibreak - I VNC back to my Mac Mini at home and use Firefox on it. :)

    I'm not sure it will work.
    Mobile operators will block torrent related ports.
    So even if there's an app available, it shouldn't work.
