BitTorrent is a protocol for distributing files. It identifies content by URL and is designed to integrate seamlessly with the web. Its advantage over plain HTTP is that when multiple downloads of the same file happen concurrently, the downloaders upload to each other, making it possible for the file source to support very large numbers of downloaders with only a modest increase in its load.

Tried this some time ago and was pleased with the results.
Went back to Transmission just because I liked that programme.
But i'm now using this all the time. Don't know why but the speeds are 3 times that of transmission. Why I cannot say, but i'm extremely happy with this now.

BitTorrent and µTorrent sure look alike. The screenshot of BitTorrent even says µTorrent in the window title ;)

Hi,

Same as the previous comment. Despite what other say, I use BitTorrent on a regular basis. There has even been a time where it was running 24/7 for about 2 months.
Never experienced a crash or anything else.
And when I added new files, they came at the max. speed.

The only thing that isn't stellar is the bandwidth allocation. Sometimes, even if I limit upload to a specified value, it goes far beyond that. But that happens only once in a while and for a limited time.

So : 5 stars anyways :-)

I have downloaded it but haven't use yet.
Whether this app requires registration or not?

Though other comments on MU suggest otherwise, my impression is a rather positive one. BitTorrent works fine for my purposes, which can be summarised in 'download Linux distribution DVD images every once in a while'.

I'm definitely not a BT power user, I'll grant that. But as opposed to the highly-famed Transmission, BitTorrent worked immediately after installation for me. I like the clean UI as well. Other clients may have more features (I did not check that out), but the bare-bones functionality of this tool is really all I need.

And you gave it a half-star because you like using something else? Ugh. Your douchebaggery really is something that it shines through the net so strong. Way to be dude... way to be. The review system isn't a "like" button...

Wow, all BitTorrent Inc. did was take utorrent 1.0.0.1 and put the BitTorrent logo/icon on it and called it BitTorrent 7.0.0. They should at least add some new features, since the mac version of utorrent is nothing compared to the windows version.

The mac versions of BitTorrent/utorrent is a joke, compared to other mac BT clients like Transmission, or even Vuze...

The previous version of this new BitTorrent app crashed. Downloaded the current version (4.27.2) and it still crashes upon launch. :(

I finally discovered the source of my problems with the BitTorrent client: The Default Folder X application interfers with its operation. When I close it, the problems go away. Therefore the conclusion is that if you want to use the BitTorrent client you'd better switch off Default Folder X.

4.3.3 crashes on launch: An unexpected error has occurred ("AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'RawServer').

Things keep getting worse with BitTorrent. Transmission or Bits on Wheels are waaaay better and more reliable.

Even a BETA version has to fulfill at least one thing: I must be able to LAUNCH it sucessfully. Otherwise, I can't even evaluate...

App won't launch for me either. I'm running Panther *with* the BSD subsystem installed. (Why anyone would disable the BSD subsystem is beyond me.)

The 3.4.2 client continues to work just fine. I deleted prefs to see if that would get the 4.0.1 client to run, but no luck.
