Reference on computer, µtorrent is also available on Android and offers a simple interface to download Torrent files and Magnet links with ease. Small flat for pop-up ads, however the application remains simple, clean and efficient for quickly downloading large files online.
Developed by BitTorrent since 2005 on PC and Mac, µtorrent is a reference for downloading Torrent files, a protocol used for peer-to-peer file sharing, the famous P2P. Among its main advantages, this protocol makes it possible to share files on download and to download more easily large files reaching several GB.
The simple BitTorrent client for Android
Available for free, the µtorrent app for Android 5.0 and more simplifies the download of Torrent files on mobiles and tablets. To do this, the user must simply copy the URL of a Torrent file or click directly on an online Magnet link. The file in question is automatically added to the list of downloads.
In addition to managing downloads, you can listen to music and play videos thanks to the integrated player. The latter does not, however, have practical functions for reading music on a daily basis but useful on an ad hoc basis to check the good integrity of a downloaded file.
Basic but very practical functions
Among its options, µtorrent offers to save its mobile data plan thanks to the download activated only in the case of WiFi. If the connection ends, the download is automatically interrupted. The options also allow you to modify the limit values for downloading and uploading data. The user can also modify the incoming port and activate the automatic launch of the application when Android starts.
Even if the whole is sleek and simple to use, the µtorrent application has two caveats: it is only in English and full of nuisance ads. You will have to get your hands on the wallet and upgrade to the paid Pro version to remove the ads and have a battery saving mode.
