If you are on the lookout for private torrent trackers with content for mobile devices, one of the best sites catering this niche just opened signups. SyncTheBits’s (aka StB), latest open registration period comes almost 10 months since the last. StB tracks applications, games, themes, mobile optimized movies, ebooks, etc for a number of mobile platforms including iPhone, Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile, Palm, PSP, Java, BlackBerry and more. It is one of the first specialized mobile trackers to hit the BitTorrent scene and has been live since 2008. After being online for several years, it looks like StB has a lot in store for the future, including a planned move to the famed Gazelle codebase.
A brief notice is posted on site homepage which covers details about the current open signup, Gazelle movie, etc
Feb-24-10 - Open Doors?
It has been a while since we have opened the doors and I had planned not to open the doors until we made the move over to gazelle but we have decided to open the doors for a short period of time.
If you are a new member to the site please check out our IRC and FORUMS and make sure you understand our rules. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
We are still looking to add a coder to our dev team so if you have any experience with php/mysql and looking for Tracker to call home please let us know. We are still trying to get our gazelle source reworked to handle our type of torrents and categories.
Enjoy the Site
As mentioned earlier, StB tracks everything mobile related from games to specially encoded movies and TV shows. The screenshot below shows some of the torrent categories found on this tracker:
Best thing about this tracker is that it has been keeping up to date with the technology. For example back when StB launched, there was no Android and iPhone was not as popular. But by now StB has added new categories, new torrents and new media for these platforms and is one of the very few torrent trackers that index such content. It has also helped debunk the myth ‘mobile trackers can’t be successful - they can’t compete with DDL forums out there’
As of now there are 3400+ registered users on StB and it indexes over 3200 torrents. However, there are some torrents without seeds and the site definitely needs more leechers. Hopefully the current open signup will attract new blood and boost the activity of this great tracker.
