Boxopus download your torrents and sends them to Dropbox

Boxopus download your torrents and sends them to Dropbox

The modus operandi is simple: many people use Dropbox, a lot more use torrents. Why not do something to unify and strengthen both services? And the answer lies a system to download directly to the folder.

Boxopus works very simple, since no need to install a client or anything. Just enough to have the torrent file corresponding Boxopus also an account (which can be created with any existing Facebook, Twitter or Dropbox), and go. The service Downloads the file and place it in directory “Apps / Boxopus” within Dropbox.

The great advantage of this method is that the download of torrent itself will be done anonymously, as it is Boxopus who is responsible for that part and not the user. But this is also one of its biggest drawbacks, since time synchronization download speeds can be reduced much when compared with what would be done directly from point to point swarm.

Similarly, the method seems quite functional for massive downloads and remote pseudo form. Even more interesting is the fact that some websites offer torrents and Boxopus support, making the user experience can be made even more clear: choose a torrent, log on to Dropbox, and that’s it.
