Editors' Review

BitTorrent technology has revolutionized the way we share files, making the transmission of movies, large pieces of software, and entire albums of music a relatively quick process. There are many torrent-sharing clients out there to choose from, and BitSpirit is one of the better ones we've encountered. There's nothing flashy about it; it's just a well-designed, easy-to-use piece of software that makes sharing torrents a breeze.

BitSpirit's interface is attractive and intuitive, and even users with rudimentary torrent knowledge will be able to figure it out. Clear, well-labeled buttons give users access to the program's major functions, and the layout is well-organized and easy to navigate. A small, unobtrusive toolbar with adjustable opacity lets users keep an eye on their torrents even when using other programs. Actually using the BitSpirit is extremely simple; we had no trouble downloading a torrent or creating a new torrent to share. We especially liked that BitSpirit lets users organize downloaded files by media type, making it easy to locate music, books, movies, software, and more. There was nothing about BitSpirit that really wowed us, but that's OK; if a program does the basics and does them well, sometimes that's all you need. We do wish that BitSpirit had a proper Help file instead of a paltry online FAQ, but that's our only major criticism. On the whole, we liked BitSpirit very much.

BitSpirit is free. It installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.

"Meets my requirements"

February 12, 2012  |  By aktakke

 |  Version: BitSpirit 3.6.0.550

Pros

Meets my requirements

Cons

When minimized or another program runs after BitSpirit, it turns into kind of taskbar on top of everything, which I don't like much. The program might simply minimize itself to Windows taskbar.
