Editors' Review

uTorrent is a free BitTorrent client, the Mac version (officially still in beta) of the popular, open-source uTorrent client for Windows.

Much like the lightweight uTorrent for Windows (also weighing in at less than 5MB), this version of uTorrent excels at downloading files quickly with minimal resource overhead. Even more stripped down than the Windows version, uTorrent for Mac gives you a familiar, three-pane interface, with support for multiple downloads and probably more drill-down details than you even need--including graphs, tables, and other specifics on seed, peers, pieces, and more. You can also throttle upload and download rates, and stop seeding automatically at a certain ratio. uTorrent is probably not the best client for actually finding torrents (there's just a simple search bar that takes you to results pages in your browser), and users looking for browsing and viewing features should check out more full-featured BitTorrent clients.

If you don't need a lot of extra features and you're looking for a fast BitTorrent client that requires almost no configuration, uTorrent is a solid option.

"Good things still come in small packages!"

November 14, 2010  |  By curtis-kj

 |  Version: uTorrent 1.0.0.1

Pros

Small application, simple and functional interface,

Cons

A user can create and apply labels to downloads, but they are not saved after quitting. A seeding limit can be set in preferences, but the program seems to continue seeding after the limit is reached.

Summary

Great alternative to the much larger (but more comprehensive) Mac torrent applications.

"No where as easy to use as Vuze."

November 01, 2010  |  By mahana1012

 |  Version: uTorrent 1.0.0.1

Pros

Didn't spend more than a few minutes trying to search for a movie before deleting. Spoiled by Vuze.

Cons

Didn't spend more than a few minutes trying to search for a movie before deleting.

Summary

I don't know why anyone would use uTorrent when there is such an easy to use fast program like Vuze. Try it and you will never use another for books, movies, programs and music.

"Good app but somehow not the best"

September 21, 2010

 |  Version: uTorrent 1.0.0.1

Pros

Does find some things but not all.

Cons

Bit short of features

Summary

Not my first choice of this type of program. Thought I'd give it a try against Vuze and another new similar app - So Mud. Both beat uTorrent.

"Best of the Best"

September 21, 2010  |  By bdiesing

 |  Version: uTorrent 1.0.0.1

Pros

It's better than any other bit Torrent client out there. And, in my opinion, the easiest to use. Very small but very powerful software.

Cons

You cannot choose what files to download by checking them to download or not. The Windows version does though. Remember this is still in beta for mac. I assure you it will gt even better.

Summary

Download it and find out that it's the best, or try others and realize you will go back to uTorrent.

"First time with torrents and this was very easy to use."

September 20, 2010  |  By dchicks_dotmac

 |  Version: uTorrent 1.0.0.1

Pros

Mac-like window layout, helpful columns of stats, arrangement of columns. Fun to watch the stats roll, and the d/l u/l speed graph is kinda fun.

Cons

Nothing yet, but I'm not an aficionado.

Summary

As a Mac user, I found it easy to get started with. So far, it works flawlessly.

"Still needs a lot of work"

June 29, 2010  |  By Markbub

 |  Version: uTorrent 1.0.0.1

Pros

It's free.

Cons

The interface is cluttered and not very mac-like. I've heard mixed reviews but for me the downloads were very slow.
