Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Sep 15, 2014

uTorrent is a downloading program that gives you quick access to a variety of content without any speed or size limitations. Although files download quickly and are easily managed with this program, the confusing interface and lack of tools might complicate your experience if you're new to using this type of program.


Detailed downloading: We enjoyed using uTorrent because it provides you with full control over downloads such as asking where you wish to save files. The upload/download limit sliders are great for those who wish to conserve energy or bandwidth, and the subscription tool also enables you to automatically download new content from RSS feeds.

Fast service: Because uTorrent doesn't limit your device's speed, we found that files download at equal or faster rates than most other downloading applications. The background download feature also performs well without slowing down your device.


Small toolkit: Compared to its desktop version, uTorrent is rather thin when it comes to features. The search tool only capitalizes on Google, so individuals new to downloading torrents will not know which sites are reliable. Also this application has an autostart option, but does not offer an auto-close option after files are completed.

Confusing, substandard design: The layout, which was recently updated, may be useful for experienced individuals, but we had some difficulty opening our downloaded files. Additionally, the toolbar notification for downloaded files could not be removed, even after we deleted the relevant content.

Bottom Line

Fast and reliable downloads are the most important aspects of torrenting, and uTorrent certainly excels at achieving these two characteristics. Improving the user interface would increase uTorrent's usability. Music lovers, film junkies, and anyone else looking for fresh content will enjoy uTorrent despite its flaws.
