Yeah, yeah, we know: you're the only person on the Intertubes who actually uses torrent sites and clients for legitimate, non-stealing reasons, honest Injun.

Tell that to the House of Jobs, who continue to reject torrent-client app submissions without a fare-thee-well.  ¬µMonitor, an iPhone program that can control the full-blown ¬µTorrent program and remotely display your current torrents, recently got shown the door in record time; in the words of its creator, "¬µMonitor hasn't been approved by Apple because they do not want any 'torrent application' on the iPhone."  The app IS available — you just need a jailbroken phone and Cydia to get it.
