uTorrent is a light client from BitTorrent that uses fewer resources than others of its sort. This simple .exe file contains a powerful app for downloading files in .torrent format with greater speed and reliability than other P2P programs like Emule. Even while occupying little space and consuming few resources, the program remains an excellent tool for downloading all sorts of files using the BitTorrent protocol. The app itself includes a search bar in the upper right corner that lets you find the all the latest torrents, although you can also download these file containers from other places on the Internet and add them to uTorrent yourself later. It’s also compatible with so-called magnet links, that is, links around the web that you can click on to directly open your download client and add to your downloads list, meaning you won’t have to download any files straight to your computer. This in turn reduces the chance of stumbling on malicious software. Some of uTorrent’s features are: simultaneous downloads of multiple files, the option to limit the bandwidth consumption for the full program or each torrent, rapid restart of interrupted downloads, and the ability to select what you want to download from a pack of several files. Moreover, uTorrent supports downloads of syndicated content via RSS feeds. Therefore, you can subscribe to special feeds to download certain torrents regularly.

The resulting tracks are stored in the output folder with the same quality as the original video. The default download format is MP3, but you can change the settings to OGG or M4A. YouTube to MP3 Converter automatically detects the name of the artist and the title of the video to save the metadata in the downloaded file. But you can always change it later if you want. You can also import the downloaded files to your iTunes playlists directly from the program.
Transmission is a BitTorrent client for Mac that allows you to easily and quickly download any torrent file. It's great for all those users who are not still used to the torrent filesharing system.

MediaGet is a torrent client that excels, more than anything, for its incredible ease of use. Many other users complain constantly about how much of a hassle it is to open and close ports or have to search for torrent files on certain pages, and it's precisely all this that MediaGet will do for you. Thus once you have the client installed, all you have to do is enter the name of the file you're interested (whether it be a book, movie, song, video game, etc.) and in a few seconds you'll see a list of all the results. One click on any of the results and the download will begin. It's that easy! The program's interface is divided into four basic tabs: the catalogue, where you can view everything there is to download and search for certain results; the downloads tab, which lets you view the download speed; the player, which does what it says on the tin; and the media library, where everything you have downloaded is automatically sorted... a very useful feature. The settings enable you to set up trackers for MediaGet to search in, limit the upload and download speed, etc. The application's only drawback is that it can be quite unstable. Especially during the search phase, it tends to freeze, although simply restarting the application usually solves the problem. MediaGet is one of the best torrent clients that you can currently find, not just because it's easy to use, which it definitely is, but also because it allows you to find just about every TV episode, movie, or song that you want in a matter of seconds.
