I looked at buying it. He is doing market segmentation on IP address. It is (in the UK) £24 - that's US $36. From google cache of his US site, I can see it's US $25. The guy seems pathologically incapable of not being a fool at every stage. I'll just wait for it to come out on torrent. I mean, he can hardly complain...

This application is long dead! It does not download anything ever again. Do not buy it!

$ 25 for an app, of which there are equally good in freeware. The support is sickening. You get no response.

I've been using xTorrent for years and slowly watched all the torrent servers ban it. Now, when you use xTorrent to search, hardly anything gets found. Developer has never been very likeable either!

I keep on reading all these negative comments and everyone recommending Transmission. I've been using Xtorrent for quite a few years now. What I love about it, is that I can use it to search for torrents, download directly or use the build-in torrent search. It still works for me, I love how it looks ( I have Lion). I did try Transmission, but it took me over 30 minutes to get it to work because I had to open up some kind of port. Xtorrent just always worked. I can leave my browser open and use Xtorrent to look for torrents. I've been using it a lot this past month and so far, so good. I don't get all the hate, but maybe I've just been lucky, or not expecting things other people seem to expect. Though I can't really figure out what those expectations might be.

This used to be a great app. But it has been banned from like 90% of the trackers. So it does not, and will never worked again. The developers used to be totally on top of things. But he has just become a scam artist. Save you money. Get Transmission.

yes: haven't touched it in months and... had to switch to Transmission, as *nothing* comes through Xtorrent anymore. attempting to deal with the developer (if by pure chance he cares to answer) ... trust me: better not! =:-/

I paid $25 for the Pro upgrade and since then not ONE thing has downloaded. There also appears to be no way to contact the guy I paid the $25 to. My Mac has the correct software and the ISP speed is fine. Save your money, there are much better free apps.

I just recently purchased Xtorrent Pro, when I want to search for a movie or music I just don't get any results. It's like it can't find anything, I tried popular searches like Top Gear, Harry Potter, Kanye West, Nirvana, ... etc but nothing. Could this have something to do with the fact that I live and work in China and therefore Xtorrent might be 'controlled' or 'blocked' by chinese watchdog? anyone else using Xtorrent Pro while in China? also experiencing similar problems? hope someone can help me out cause it really sucks that I can't download anything

Ex user (v1), trailed v2, still just as buggy, and support requests go unanswered. Don't bother - use one of the free Torrent clients instead.

Nice to see it improved in Lion. Imho this and uTorrent are the best torrent client ever. I agree that developer probably don't take the right time to reply to mails, but the app itself is amazing imho.

Amazing? You clearly have a low bar. The interface was nice back in 2007. Now it's tired and showing its age. Transmission is better in every way. And the current beta builds are introducing nice Lion popovers. Oh, and this things is (and always will be) banned on every single private tracker... which is crippling if you are into more than just pirating off Pirate Bay! If you want to fork over $25 to a smarmy, lowlife who stole other people's hard work to make his client, why not donate that money to one of the many, many free alternatives?

I don't have a low bar, i like xTorrent simple interface. Indeed i agree with most you said, but i think torrent is still a great app even if the dev is not supportive or updates are minor. For sure i would NOT buy it today, since uTorrent and other client are pretty good and free, but since i've paid it many years ago and now it is still work ok from me (anyway i use torrent very very little since i don't pirate anything). Don't worry i always donate to free software i use, i've lost count on many donation i've done for my Mac and Amiga software over years. Still i like xTorrent.

I have not had any luck w/ any of the trial versions. I have to confess that I do not have time to sort out the the technical issues but that is why the app is supposed to be worth $25; that should not be necessary. I bought Acquisition for $25 and the Mr. Watanabe is an @$$. He bailed on support and REFUSES to respond to emails at all. He does not deserve a nickel of anyone's money. Just about any app that downloads torrents works fairly well for that and the thing that I would get xTorrent for would be that it makes finding torrents simple. So if the Dev was to start actually supporting what he sells he'd stand to make some serious $$ but it is well documented here and else where that he prefers being an @$$...
