A long awaited change has finally happened over at SyncTheBits (StB), a leading private torrent tracker for mobile, smartphone content. StB has gone through a complete site overhaul and staff have now launched the next major revision of the tracker. This new milestone (dubbed StB v2) introduces many new features, add-ons and enhancements including advanced search, a new bonus system, streamlined user interface, a more organized torrent index, faster navigation and many other smaller tweaks. StB now runs on a customized version of Gazelle source making it the first specialized mobile tracker to utilize this popular codebase. In celebration of StB v2 public launch, signups have been opened on this otherwise invite-only private community.

Good news about the Gazelle migration is that StB staff have managed to do it without any data loss. All the torrents are in tact and the tracker is functioning as it should. User accounts however seem to require manual input for them to be migrated – this is a one time process and can easily be done through the automatic migration tool available at http://www.syncthebits.com/stb_migration.php (this applies to existing members only – new users who signup today are not required to do this).

At the time of writing StB had 2400+ active users and ~4000 torrents in its index, making it probably the largest specialized mobile tracker in existence. As we highlighted in a previous post, you can find on this site applications, games, themes, mobile optimized movies, ebooks, etc for a number of different mobile platforms including iPhone, Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile, Palm, PSP, Java, BlackBerry and more. Thanks to the user friendly search and organization features provided by Gazelle, discovering goodies for your mobile should now be easier.

Another new feature introduced with the launch of StB v2 is the ‘Store’. Through the store you are able to purchase invites & upload credit in exchange for bonus points (earned by seeding torrents), gift your points to friends and convert excess invites back to bonus points. You can even gamble away your credits by playing Blackjack solo or against other players.

Simultaneous to the launch of StB v2, public signups have been opened. The site’s current user limit is set to 5000 which leaves around 2500 free slots remaining. If you are looking for a mobile tracker with a great interface and a decent amount of content, check this out.
