Free torrent client
BitLord is a small, standalone peer-to-peer file sharing app. It is a torrent client with various useful tools, such as a built-in browser with a search engine that you can use to search for movies, music, documents, and other types of files. This app has developed into a fully-featured download manager that allows users to request files to be available for download, thus enabling them to stream videos while downloading.
BitLord Vs. uTorrent
When it comes to torrenting clients, uTorrent is perhaps the most popular. However, BitLord can give it a run for its money in terms of service and ease of use. Downloading the app is simple, unlike uTorrent, which is somewhat trickier. You only need to click the download file and save it to your hard drive to start the download process. More, there are two versions available—the web and the classic versions.
BitLord also offers a full interface with plenty of features available. There is a search bar on the top left corner, which reveals torrents available for download. You can also browse torrents by clicking the categories listed at the top of the screen. First-time users may find the app confusing with all the features displayed on its window. uTorrent is more clean-looking but it does not provide much information and it does not allow searching for torrents.
BitLord also beat uTorrent when it comes to downloading speed, taking only half of the time it takes for the latter to download a file. More, there is not a lot of variation in the download speeds. The app also lets you hide your location with a VPN, something that the free version of uTorrent does not allow. That said, be wary of downloading as some files may be malicious and contain malware or viruses.
The better choice
All in all, BitLord is the better choice if you are looking for a free torrenting client. It offers a more interesting and intuitive interface and allows you to search for a torrent file within the app and download it with a single click. The app also provides you with an option to hide your identity with its VPN compatibility. As is the case with all P2P file-sharing though, always download with caution.Now supports downloading through the eDonkey network in addition to the traditional BitTorrent, allowing for faster downloads by dual downloading between those two networks.
