If you search on the Play Store, then you will find many torrent downloader apps with free as well as paid versions available. These apps provide a real convenient way to download torrent right on your Android device and you don’t need to find any laptop or desktop to do this task. One such new app is aTorrent (Beta) that is a torrent downloader app for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and higher devices. Let’s take a closer look at this app.
Free Torrent Downloader for Android
aTorrent is not just a simple downloader but it comes with all the features that you would ever wish should come with a torrent manager. It supports multiple downloads, built in search engine, auto start on boot, custom bandwidth allocation, detailed information on torrents, customizable notifications and many more.
As you can see in the screenshot above, the screen is divided between different tabs like All, Downloading and Seeding. These tabs are pretty self-explanatory. At the bottom, there’s a button to start/resume, pause, add, delete or search for a new torrent.
The app supports DHT port, P2P port and UDP tracker port. The interface runs quite smoothly as expected. While the light theme looks great, some users might want the dark theme. There’s also an option to download torrents only when your device is connected to charging. Plus, you can download torrents only if Wi-Fi connection is established.
You can tap on a torrent that is downloading to know more details on it such as download and upload speed, time left, downloaded, total size, files, peers and trackers. There’s no option to download only selected files from within the torrent and many of you will surely miss this option.
Overall it can be said that this torrent downloader/client for Android has much to offer. Those who want to download torrents, or even download multiple torrents on their Android phone or tablet will find this app as very useful, all thanks to its plethora of configuration options.
There are two versions (or apps) available for aTorrent as of this writing. One version is available in Beta for Android 4.0 ICS and above and another version is available for Android 2.1 and above. Both the versions are available for free on the Play Store. Get it for your device from the below link.
