    "Looks Great but Doesn't Work"

    February 17, 2005  |   By MrScottG


    It's small and has a seeminlgy functional in design. It installs quickly and cleaning as a single executable file in the directory I specify. The application itself includes a searching feature that links to multiple search engines for the purpose of finding specific torrent files.


    I only once gave a peer to peer service a serious try, and that was two years ago. Perhaps, then, much of the problem is that the designers assumed I as the user would know more about how to use this application. When I do find I torrent I would like to try downloading in the search screen, I can't transfer the location to the download folder. I have to type in the complete URL manually which is a pain considering some of the excessively long file names. Even after doing this, it still doesn't download. No amount of probbing or unpausing will convince the program to do the one thing it is supposed to do. I know that contact is being made because BLite is giving me a constant update on how many seeds and peers are also using this particular file, but I remain stuck at 0% downloaded. Most aggrevating of all, I can't tell if I am doing something wrong because the program has no documentation. I mean none! There isn't a help file nor wizard nor faq. There isn't even a readme.txt file packaged with this software. The designers' website is equally unhelpful.
