I am fairly new to torrents. I've used FrostWire for it in the past and recently tried uTorrent. With FrostWire, you just search in the application and the results come up below - for torrents, files inside torrents, files from YouTube, Soundcloud etc. Now I tried to search with uTorrent and now Transmission, and nothing comes up!

Both work when I open a torrent file directly from my hard drive... Is that how these apps suppose to work, or am I missing something? Are these apps for super advanced users?

Is there another application I can use that would have all the searching and downloading in one place? I like FrostWire - I just want to see if there is anything else like it or better?

Is this Torrent client for very advanced users? I've used FrostWire before for torrents and there you just search what you want and the options to download come up underneath. I've tried to search in uTorrent, and nothing happens!

Do you need to have the torrent downloaded already?

I think I am first here to give it 5 stars! But oh well! I am not a super savvy torrent person, but I get the concept. My objective is to download what I want, the easiest & fastest way possible.

I like that FrostWire let's me download just a few files from a big torrent.

I like that I can download from YouTube and Soundcloud too!

I like that I first get to search and then narrow down my search results by audio or video or torrent.

I like that all my music goes directly to iTunes, although I do find myself using the FrostWire player more often [still little buggy]
I don't like the chat - feels like something I would use in high school 10 years ago!

I don't like that the software closes for a long time. But I guess these are not a big deal.
