    "Very difficult to figure out how to use."

    August 12, 2010  |   By gwgerrity

    Pros

    Presumably contains the latest tweaks for the BitTorrent algorithim: can?t wait for the tweaks to migrate to uTorrent and/or Vuze.

    Cons

    Just not useful except for geeks who are torrent experts. As a retired Computer Scientist of 30 years experience, I do understand the theory behind bit torrent: I am just not expert enough to figure out how to use this application.

    Summary

    BitTorrent is too difficult to use for the average BitTorrent user. I could never get it to search for torrent sources even when I knew the name of a desired application. I only was able to get it to work when I knew the URL of a source: in that case, it downloaded the application very quickly, but didn?t seem to locate other sources.

    Choose uTorrent: its faster and much easier to use. Vuze also works for me.
