While many people may have turned to streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now, Amazon Prime and others for their video needs, many people out there still download their content from peer to peer services and to do such a thing you need to have a torrent app. Where once this particular corner of the Play Store app categories was dominated by a couple of well-known offerings, there are now multiple choices to look at. Here is a list of ten torrent applications on Android worth looking into.
Transdrone is another app that allows you to manage torrents on your seedbox or home server. Anyone who grabs this app will be able to start and stop torrents, add torrents, set priorities, view trackers, and more. It seems to work pretty well and it should be compatible with most torrent clients. Transdrone is fairly basic, but powerful enough to get the job done. There is another version called Transdroid that includes more features.
µTorrent has had a positive reputation with torrent users for ages. It’s one of the most popular desktop torrent clients and it’s frequently hailed for its simple, non-bloated, but functional interface. µTorrent is much the same way on Android. There is a simple interface that allows you to quickly view and manage your various torrent downloads. It also includes the ability to choose your storage location, remove torrents with and without deleting the data, and a WiFi only mode that will only start torrents while you’re connected to WiFi. There is a free version you can try out before grabbing the paid version if you want to try it out first.
Frostwire is another option for those looking to get their hands on a free torrent downloader. It’s a BitTorrent client like some others on this list, but claims to be different based on the fact that it has a built-in search. It can search multiple indexes to find the best torrents for you and you can play them before they’re finished downloading.
BitTorrent®- Torrent Downloads
Perhaps the biggest name in torrent downloading is BitTorrent. They also happen to have one of the better torrent apps available right now. It runs on the latest “torrent core” which allows for improved connections between you and other peers. You’ll also be able to deal with magnet links more quickly. It has a Material Design inspired interface which makes it quick to move around and you’ll also find plenty of music and other content that’s actually legal to download. It may not be the best for power users, but casual torrent users should enjoy it.
Flud – Torrent Downloader
If you’re looking for something that’s a little more pretty to look at while you search for and download torrents, then Fluid may be the app for you. It doesn’t just look good though as it offers up some decent features, like having no limits on upload and download speeds. You can move files around while downloading and it has a UI that’s been optimized for tablet displays.
Last up is zetaTorrent. It has one of the more unique set of features which includes a built-in browser with ad block. You can also make use of its built-in file manager if you need it. It also supports a wide range of protocols, including DHT, local peer discovery, uTP, and Peer Exchange. There are also a ton of other features available. The paid version contains even more features, including an IP filter, proxy support, and more. It’s a tad bloated, but not bad overall.
Vuze Torrent Downloader
Vuze is already known as one of the more popular torrent apps for computers. The Android version is also pretty good as well. You’ll be able to download torrents, switch their locations, and you can even control upload and download speeds. Users will also be able to auto-start the app on boot, switch to WiFi only mode, and get alerts when torrents are finished downloading. Vuze is a great option overall and you’ll be able to thoroughly try the free version before you buy it.
