I’m building a new iOS app to have some of the functionaliteit this app had, primarily because I’d like to have it myself but I will make it opensource so you can build and sign it yourself.

I am enrolled in the Apple Developer Program so I could also release it to the App Store but seeing that this app was pulled, I expect it to be denied.

Good news

I’m still using the app as I bought it so can still get it from my purchased apps.

Keep us up to date with any release info
Will it be up on GitHub?

Cheers

Thanks for the interest!

I will try to work on it as much as I can. In the meantime if any of you have any must-have features that the app should have, I would love to hear them.

For now it is on a private repository on Bitbucket, when I have the first working version with some basic functionality I'll make it public.

Well, as a paid customer of Monitor for Transmission I was quite happy that it still does work until now, even on the newest devices and latest iOS versions. Unfortunately, when I changed my Transmission configuration to a connection using SSL for also being able to use it secured remotely I was quite surprised that Monitor didn’t work that way. And while it does look like it would support SSL it just hangs after entering the correct (and well verified) data. So yes, besides the usual suspects for using Transmission comfortably (starting a download via a magnet link in Safari, deleting downloads, changing the speed etc.) via iOS it would be very much welcome to also being able to use it via SSL.

For now it is on a private repository on Bitbucket, when I have the first working version with some basic functionality I'll make it public.

This is great news! Some of us are really really happy about such an announcement as you can imagine. Please let us participate as early as possible (just drop me a private message if you prefer).

I’m hugely disappointed about the complete disappearance of Rui Carneiro as he seems to have wanted to fully support his fine little app and then decided otherwise after the imbeciles at Apple pulled the plug. The help files as well as his website just vanished. But why on earth not releasing the source code at least to those of us who paid for the app? Well, his account on GitHub (https://github.com/RuiCarneiro) still exists so there might remain some hope.

Hi guys! I apologize for my English, but I have good news. The source code for the transshift application is available on github.
https://github.com/alcheck/transshift
Works fine, though not for long. Is it possible to install it bypassing the appstore?

Can someone have the opportunity to put the program on https://rink.hockeyapp.net, as a beta version?

Awesome. I wasn't aware of this new project.

Yes, you can build & install that app on your iOS devices.

You'll need Xcode — which will have a learning curve if you're not used to it or IDEs in general — and a 99 USD/yr Apple Developper Account to sign the app.

If you're lucky, it's just a matter of :
- signing up for the Apple Developper Account
- creating an app ID for your app
- downloading Xcode
- open source .xcodeproj file in Xcode, put app ID in settings
- hopefully latest versions of Xcode can automatically generate & fetch the certificates/provisioning profiles to sign the app
- connect device by USB, select it, press "play" button an off you go !

Yes, but there are problems. Not everyone has an apple computer, and not everyone can afford to pay $ 99 a year for the sake of one program

Just seen your suggestion of using a HockeyApp distribution. Trouble is, such a build would not be valid for very long. It's 90 days with Testflight, up to a year w/ Hockey probably.

If put through xcode, without a developer account, then the application will work for about 7 days. It's better to reinstall the application every 90 days than every 7

There are sites that put programs on the iphone, like https://appvalley.vip, maybe the installation of transshift can be arranged in this way?

This is very exciting! Can’t wait to use the new app.

I download my unofficial apps from the BuildStore (https://builds.io) it must be similar to appvally where they take care of signing the app so the user doesn’t need to worry about it.

Let us know when you’ve got a distribution method working :)
