There are thousands of private BitTorrent trackers out there but specialized software trackers are really scarce. We covered some such sites in a previous article but Appz Bitshock deserves a separate review – the site has improved a great deal since we last mentioned it and it’s without a doubt one of the best software trackers around. One of the major new features over at Appz BitShock is their shiny new autouploader. The ongoing test run has been a massive success with close to 2000 torrents being uploaded by the bot in only about a week. For those interested in joining, we have an exclusive free signup key that’ll give you extra upload credit and invites upon signup.
Appz BitShock (ABsk) launched back in June 2008, as part of the BitShock tracker family. With the backing of it’s bigger and more popular sister site BitShock.org, ABsk quickly established a strong foothold among specialized software trackers. After around 1.5 years since launch, Appz Bitshock currently tracks over 7100 torrents and has an active user base of close to 7250 members. These are quite impressive stats, especially considering the fact that they lost around 6000 torrents in a HDD failure several months ago.
ABsk is currently testing an autouploader script which is sure to improve pre times and increase the number of daily torrents added to the tracker. As we said above more than 1800 torrents have already been uploaded by the script within a very short period of time. To identify releases uploaded by the bot, sort the torrents by ‘Auto Upload’ in the type field (or search for this category). Appz BitShock currently tracks both Windows and Mac software as well as tutorials & E-books for various applications.
In addition to the autouploader, ABsk recently launched their own IRC channel on popular server irc.p2p-network.net. You’ll get 15MB upload credit every 15 mins if you idle on the channel. Channel may be accessed using irc://irc.p2p-network.net/Appz.Bitshock. If you run into any problems with the site, support channel may be reached at irc://irc.p2p-network.net/appz.support.
Appz BitShock is regularly open for signup. However the good folks in their staff team have agreed to provide an exclusive signup key for FILEnetworks Blog readers which has some extra features not available for regular users. Everyone who signs up using this key will get 8GB free upload credit as well as 10 free invites the moment you confirm your registration. Signup URL will be valid for 500+ days and it is able to facilitate 50000+ new signups. If you are looking for a decent software tracker, go check ABsk out.
