Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
With all the other good BitTorrent clients out there for the Mac now, it's hard to make the case for using the official BitTorrent client for downloading torrents. (Note that this confusingly named application shares its name with the company, entertainment network, and popular protocol BitTorrent.) The current interface is much more clean and useful than in previous iterations, and BitTorrent does deliver on what it promises, with features like automatic port mapping and local peer discovery. But with well over a year since the last update and scant documentation, BitTorrent just hasn't kept up with the competition. Overall, we think BitTorrent does a fairly good job, but with some slow response times, a lack of development, and a noticeably aged interface, you might want to look elsewhere.
