At last Apple has broken it’s restriction.A BitTorrent-based torrent managing app called IS Drive has been approved for the App Store.The app, previously known as Jack Torrents, was available under Cydia for jailbroken iOS devices. IS Drive allows users of ImageShack’s torrent service to manage their torrents from an iOS device.
Apple would just say, “Because this category of applications is often used for the purpose of infringing third party rights. We have chosen to not publish this type of application to the App Store” and simply close the gates to the App Store for your torrent-managing app.
From the App’s official page:
This app allows you to check and manage the downloads in your ImageShack Drive account. For downloaded videos, you can even view thumbnails (if ImageShack is able to provide them).
Developer Derek Kepner, in an interview with TorrentFreak, said:
I’m on dangerous ground here, and I know that, I’ll probably add a search feature where it’s up to the user to manually add the torrent site they want. The app will not be designed to easily break the law and I hope no one intends to do so. But if a user is determined to break the law, what business is that of mine or Apple’s? They could do the same in Safari anyway, right?
