Remotely trigger torrent downloads via email from iPhone
Authored by: horhey23 on Jan 13, '10 11:28:28AM

I use the iPhone app iDownload to save files from the web and email them to myself. With a Mail rule, AppleScript and Hazel I have any files with a .torrent extension saved to a specific folder that Hazel watches, and then opens with Transmission.

Alternates could be to open the file with Transmission using AppleScript, or if Transmission is running save to it's "watch" folder (and enable the watched folder in Transmission's prefs). I'm no AppleScript guru, so I used Hazel since I already own it.

My Mail rules are setup so that only messages coming from specific email addresses trigger the rule.

That's great but this trick doesn't require any additional apps besides the ones that come preinstalled with your Mac :) Plus Hazel isn't free.
