I love this program, but I'm about to have to stop using it because it just can't be trusted to keep my torrents. Three times now I've opened the app to find an empty torrent list. I've had close to 30 in the list each time. It did this in Oreo in my Samsung Note 8, and again in Pie after the update. There are never any files in the Files folder, so I can't re-add my torrents. I wish I could fix this.

I've been using BiglyBT on the phone and the PC for well over a year now. Haven't gone to another app yet. In fairness, I came in with the Vuze branching, this has had better support. I probably overuse both for the device. I have ran over 100 torrents (mostly complete) at a time with no stability issues. While there are features on the PC that I would like to see on the phone, the current stability and ease of use of the phone app more than make up for it.

The app works fine on my Google tv; the only problem is that added torrents appear relatively slowly, and without exception, I need to manually start them, since they are automatically added in a Stopped status. In other words, between clicking on a torrent and actually having the torrent starting to download, at least 2 minutes pass. Does anyone have a solution for this issue? Thanks!

Do you get the 'Open Torrent' screen after adding a torrent? If not, turn on 'Show Open Options' in Settings. The open torrent screen should have a 'Initial State' switch that alternates between 'Stopped' and 'Queued'. Along with 'Queue Position' set to 'First', the 'Queued' initial state should start the torrent automatically. Hope that helps!
