I'm having strange issues. When I add my username to it and press start, it opens uTorrent to try to add something. It can't, of course. Stopping the app and relaunching it, it goes to the messaging page so I assume it created my username? Pressing the TinCan symbol in the top left merely attempts to open uTorrent again.

You... have uTorrent on your phone?

Meriadoc  ·  1866 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Yes. I've toyed with it some to change some things on it, but it's mostly for when access to my computers is difficult and I need to get something, usually software or music related. It's also a good way of using an old phone that I'm no longer using, by setting it up as a seeder after removing most everything else.

EDIT: In the end it's not super useful, but if you're really jonesing for some music, it's a good way to get something quick and have it immediately available on what's already your music device without having to worry about getting it from a stream or cloud like google play.

Hm. Is uTorrent running in the background? I don't use it. We will look into it.

No, but I have it set up to open when I download a magnet or torrent file. Maybe it misjudges some process of TinCan as a magnet?

Maybe. Is it possible to disable that uTorrent functionality temporarily and retry?

I made post about it, yes, same issue, utorrent gets the url when you try to log in, and tries to open it as a torrent. I uninstalled utorrent, and it works now.
