"Download's easy and it worked. No ill effects."

February 18, 2013  |  By Odie715

 |  Version: uTorrent 3.2 beta

Pros

Just download and install. Then go to work.

Cons

If you do not use torrent programs often (and I do not) it would be comforting to have a better understanding of the many "items" listed on the page when you open the program. There are several things I don't understand that could enhance my use of this program.

"Not Worth the Price"

October 19, 2012  |  By Jibaku

 |  Version: uTorrent 3.2 beta

Pros

I've been a loyal fan of Utorrent for years, thanks to the simplicity it claims to aim for ("a very tiny bitTorrent client"). But today I finally acquiesced to the constant notifications badgering me to install yet another update, and I am incredibly disappointed.

Cons

When it presented the tic boxes for me to sign the User Agreement - yet again - it had tic boxes pre-checked to accept things I did not elect, that have nothing to do with the application I'm trying to continue using:

1) a UTorrent toolbar
2) a switch from my default Search provider to a UTorrent one

Things which are so blatantly needless and universally undesired that they can only be panned off on users by unscrupulous means.

I de-selected three check boxes. I then realized that the last box was actually for the User Agreement, so I re-checked it. Upon doing so, the two above automatically re-checked themselves. I unchecked them again, leaving only the last box checked.

Summary

Unfortunately, the next time I opened my browser there was a uTorrent toolbar taking up the top of the screen and thanking me for installing it. I spent the next while manually uninstalling it from every web browser I have on my machine, including those that I rarely use.

Utorrent has no right to the claim that it's a light application when it's laden down with mandatory, insidious, bloatware. This is not free software. Just because the price isn't in dollars, doesn't mean it's not a price. One that many, like myself, are less willing to pay than an honest dollar.

On a lesser point, changing the entire interface with every update is not necessarily an asset, either. Simplicity means function, dependability, and no unwarranted baggage. Remember that, or prepare to move over for the next developers who do.
