Lightweight torrent client

uTorrent is a torrent client that helps to access a mouthwatering collection of software, music, video, and movies on the Web. If you are looking for a reliable torrent client featuring a reasonable amount of advertising, this app is a great fit. The client helps to download torrent files while quietly running in the background. uTorrent is not obtrusive, which is the best thing about it.

Here’s why uTorrent is the best choice for Mac users. The app is lightweight (slightly more than 1MB), yet it is stuffed with powerful features. It is capable of resuming stopped downloads as well as handling downloads in the sequential order. The automated bandwidth adjustment comes in handy when a user forgets to set bandwidth limits manually. Other useful functions of the torrent client are port forwarding, remote control from a smartphone, in-app search, and support for encrypted files.

It should be mentioned that other streaming apps have more features; however, it hasn’t lifted them from obscurity, which is a testament to uTorrent’s superiority. uTorrent concentrates on providing features that the Web community really needs. Therefore, instead of adding more bells and whistles, it focuses on performance, which has helped it to become the most reliable peer-to-peer file sharing app on the market. Given that the utility features macOS-style interface, Mac owners won’t find it difficult to navigate it.

uTorrent is fast and easy to use. Other than ads, there’s nothing to complain about.
