SymTorrent is the first and currently only one BitTorrent client for Symbian OS. It supports downloading multiple torrents at the same time, is capable of both downloading and uploading and can save the status of your unfinished torrents, so you can resume the downloads after restarting the application. You can also check the status of each file inside a torrent along with several other statistics and properties during download.

Currently, SymTorrent is available for mobile devices based on the S60 Platform 3rd edition. Supported phone models include all recently released Symbian OS based phones, such as the Nokia Nseries/Eseries devices and many older models as well.

SymTorrent is free and open source software, distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
