    Vuze is the free, full-featured reincarnation of the popular BitTorrent client Azureus, an app for finding and watching video content that you download via torrent files.

    Compared with more traditional and utilitarian BitTorrent clients, Vuze has a much richer, iTunes-style interface--with as much attention devoted to finding and viewing videos as to downloading them. You can browse the "Vuze HD Network" for videos (although you'll find a lot of lower-grade Internet fare, like promos, trailers, and podcasts), or you can look around using a friendly, easy search interface (although much of the content you'll find is copyright protected, which Vuze warns you about). The download functionality is excellent and fast, with plenty of control over even esoteric settings--and it's easy to view technical minutiae for a torrent in Vuze's big visual interface. Vuze will also help you get video into your iTunes with a beta "Devices" feature, and even onto your Apple TV, iPhone, iPod, or other devices.

    For someone new to torrents, Vuze could be a great, easy introduction. If you're already familiar with using torrents and you're happy with your current client, you might not find enough here to inspire a switch.

      "Great app! Make sure you use the auto-quit feature tho"

      April 10, 2014   |   By leitlang

      Version: Vuze BitTorrent Client 5.3

      Pros

      Powerful and feature-rich
      Everything you need out of a torrent client with cool features I don't need but if I did would obviate the need for several other apps, e.g. media server, converter
      Most importantly: SHUTDOWN WHEN SEEDING or DOWNLOADS COMPLETE!! I can't stress enough how great that is. UTorrent has it but it resets each time you use it so it's useless

      Cons

      Power-hungry
      -Hence the utility of the auto-quit feature. It'll hog your resources for a few minutes while your file downloads then quit and you'll have no problems.

      Summary

      Go for it.

      Version: Vuze BitTorrent Client 5.3

      Pros

      I've tried many clients but I like this the most because of the menu and the features available with it.

      Cons

      No errors and nothing against this application.
