    If you have never heard of Put.io, it is a different type of a cloud-based service in a way that it does not act as an archiver for your locally-stored files, similar to what other cloud storage services (e.g. Dropbox, Google Drive, Mega, etc.) do. It is more like "the remote version of the '/Downloads' directory" on your computer/phone because it lets you fetch all kinds of files that you can find on the Internet, and even torrents, on their servers, and later on download onto your own devices. It is helpful at times when you are running low on storage space, links expire quickly, or either the download speeds are pretty low and you do not have enough time to wait.

    There is not an official Put.io client for Android to this date, but perhaps, the one built by Steven Schoen features a mildly simple and minimalistic, yet functional design, combined with a decent set of functionality.

    This led to having a safer selection of Android apps available on Google's software marketplace, but on the contrary, to a backlash from many developers, because, by restricting the use of accessibility services, SMS and telephony access, it left many applications with completely broken core functionalities, e.g. Cerberus. Its most recent v3.6 update has been recently released to comply with those changes, thus removing many important features.
