A new web app soon to hit the iPhone will allow users to open torrent links in their mobile web browser and stream them directly to their device.
At the recent TechCrunch Hackathon in New York, Sohail Prasad built a fully functioning web app called NowStream, which allows you to grab a torrent link, copy it into your iPhone’s web browser, and stream the torrent’s contents instantly to your device.
The end result? You can stream movies to your iOS device using just a torrent link. Pretty cool, eh?
Prasad still has to complete the legalities and iron out any bugs, and then the NowStream web app will be launch. You can register your interest and get a notification when the service goes live on the NowStream website.
