Editors' Note: The "Download Now" link directs you to the Android Market where you must continue the download process. This download may not be available in some countries.
Sporting a streamlined interface and all the features you'd expect from up-to-date P2P BitTorrent software, aTorrent enables you to download unlimited file sizes and run multiple downloads at once, standing its ground against tough competitors like uTorrent and BitTorrent. While a Pro, ad-free version is available, we feel that the free version is more than enough.
Polished interface: aTorrent doesn't only look good, featuring a pleasant and relaxing white and blue color scheme, but it proves easy to use whether we're talking about manually adding downloads or browsing through completed or ongoing downloads. You'll especially like the intuitive swipe controls that enable you to quickly navigate through Downloading, Seeding, Completed, and Active torrents, a way of navigation, which is an improvement over the endless downward scrolling of other BitTorrent apps.
Excellent performance: While rating a torrent app's speed can be tricky since so much depends on your connection and the number of seeders available, judging from our tests we can say that this app performs as well as its more popular competitors, smoothly downloading files at over 1MB/second on a good connection. Downloads do impact the battery life and overall system performance, but reasonably so.
Useful settings: If you're an avid downloader, you'll appreciate the Exit on complete option, the ability to change the default downloads folder, and download rules such as Wi-Fi or Power Supplied only.
Lack of support: The developer's Web site doesn't work.
Questionable Pro version: The developer doesn't make clear what improvements the paid version brings apart from ads removal. If it's just that, it's not worth the upgrade, since the ads are not annoying.
With its intuitive interface and good performance, aTorrent makes a more than positive impression. We recommend it, if you constantly download a lot of files and want to manage downloads with ease.
