Editors' Review

Portable applications give so much and take so little; they pack powerful, useful programs in compact, efficient packages that are totally portable and self initializing. You can carry a bunch of them around in your pocket like a total software tool kit on a USB drive. They're quick and efficient operators, and they're often free, too. PortableApps' uTorrent is just such a program. It's a free, portable BitTorrent client that nevertheless includes most features common to peer-to-peer utilities, such as bandwidth prioritization, scheduling options, autodownloading of RSS feeds, and decentralized tracking through Mainline DHT. It typically uses less than 6MB of memory, which is insignificant to all systems but the most antiquated and is one of the keys to the program's total portability.

This software is based on a very svelte program to begin with, and it's actually a bit larger than the standard version of uTorrent because of additions that make it portable. However, it functions much the same as the standard P2P client. When we tested uTorrent, we found it extremely easy to use, with a simple button interface that made pausing downloads a cinch. The portable version retains the features and functionality of the standard software, including the Help file. It's easy to use, even from a USB drive; insert the drive, wait for Windows to see it, click the program icon, and it's ready to work.

Like all PortableApp's offerings, uTorrent is free to use and share. It works with all versions of Windows from 2000 to 7.

"A robust and tiny torrent down-loader"

January 07, 2011  |  By nykgordon

 |  Version: uTorrent Portable 2.2.23703

Pros

Takes up very little space.
Feels just as good as the original version
Torrents pause and resume no matter which PC you are using when you plug your thumb drive in

Cons

Interface is not as attractive as other torrent downloading software.

Summary

This program packs a mighty punch in a small package. While the interface comes off as bland and boring, its ability to resume downloads on whatever PC it is plugged into and the small amount of space it takes up makes this the ideal torrent downloading software for people on the go

"great torrent downloader"

November 29, 2010  |  By startreksuite

 |  Version: uTorrent Portable 2.2

Pros

faster than last version, or at least the one available at portable apps.

Cons

It takes a little getting used to.

Summary

Great way to download torrents. I tried using a portable frostwire with no sources. An earlier version of this program gave me 14 kb/s, way too slow! This update is much faster, and finished a download in an hour!
