It’s been quite some time since BitTorrent promised an Android-native uTorrent client, and now the dream of many has turned into reality. The company finally released uTorrent for Android smartphones and tablets.
The new uTorrent (beta release) comes with a whole lot of useful features, including the opportunity to search for torrents, download files directly on your device, and even RSS feeds.
“For the past few months our engineers have been hard at work developing a mobile BitTorrent app that is worthy of the name uTorrent,” BitTorrent Inc. announced.
“In order to live up to our high standards, we knew that the app would need to be fast, lightweight, powerful and better than anything else currently on the market,” they added.
Prior to this release, users could control uTorrent through an application called “uTorrent remote”.
“We are very excited to add uTorrent for Android to our mobile product arsenal that is already reaching almost 4 million users,” the company said.
However, people are still expecting the uTorrent version for Mac devices (iPhone, iPad), but BitTorrent is currently having other priorities:
“Right now we’re focusing on growing our Android clients,” BitTorrent Inc. told TorrentFreak.
Meanwhile, Apple users can use Falcon – an excellent client that’s compatible with iPhones.
Furthermore, BitTorrent is working on a version of uTorrent for Linux OS. By all means, we congratulate the developing team for their relentless work and dedication. It’s no wonder that uTorrent remains the number one peer-to-peer client in the world!
