Note: This post has been bumped to the front because StB closed signups just 1-2 hours after the article was originally posted. This time around signups will remain open for 24 hours.

Although we usually post about at least one private torrent tracker everyday here at FILEnetworks Blog, it’s been ages since a specialized mobile torrent tracker was featured. When it comes to mobile trackers SyncTheBits (StB) is as good as it gets. From its humble beginnings back in 2008, StB has grown on to become one of the largest BitTorrent sites (in terms of content) for mobile content currently in existence. From appz/games for popular mobile platforms such as Symbian, Java, iPhone, PalmOS, BlackBerry etc, StB even tracks mobile optimized multimedia including re-encoded movies and TV shows.

As of 28/5/2009, StB has an active user base of close to 1800 members. Inactive accounts are very frequently disabled on this tracker – the admins seem to want very active members for the site. SyncTheBits currently tracks a little over 3000 active torrents. This is a pretty huge number, specially for a private tracker that focuses ONLY on mobile content.

Speaking of content, StB is no longer the mobile appz-only tracker it was back when it was started. The site has further expanded and it now tracks mobile optimized movies, TV shows, E-books and other media as well. The following screenshots will probably help you get a better understanding of what can be found on StB:

As you can probably see from the above screen, there is a category titled ‘Packs’ in the list. The packs section contains over 40 torrents – all exclusive torrents unique to StB.

StB is closed for signups most of the time. However the good news is that public registrations are currently open. Even better news is that free leech and double upload has been enabled for all indexed torrents (global freeleech and 2X upload). We do not know for how long open signups will stay open so get in while you can.
