It’s Here. Announcing the Native µTorrent Application for Android.

A while back we introduced µTorrent Remote for Android which allows users to manage their torrents from their phone. We received a lot of great feedback, but the most popular question was:  “When will a fully featured µTorrent Client be available for Android?”

For the past few months our engineers have been hard at work developing a mobile BitTorrent app that is worthy of the name “µTorrent.” 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. After months of hard work (and copious amounts of coffee) we are proud to release µTorrent Beta for Android to the Google Play store.

µTorrent Beta for Android offers several features such as:

  • Fast, easy on-the-go downloading of torrents
  • No speed or size caps on downloads (mobile data limits still apply)
  • RSS subscriptions
  • Instant access to our growing library of featured content

We are very excited to add uTorrent for Android to our mobile product arsenal that is already reaching almost 4 million users. If you have any comments, feature requests or bug reports (this is in beta after all), let us know in the comments. We’d love to hear from you.


Android app on Google Play

    Apple being the totalitarians they are, would never allow this on their iTunes store.

  2. Sam says:

    Release the source so I can make it look less ugly! :D

  3. JES says:

    It would be nice if you followed the Android style guidelines, but whatever. Not like they’re there for a reason.

  4. chris hind says:

    Erk, whatever happened to following the UI guidelines.

  5. Patrick Thompson says:

    That interface looks hideous guys….
    No Android style at all

    Take a look at this: http://holothere.tumblr.com/post/30947966584/utorrent-holo

    Why no holo? Its awesome- but just not clean.

  7. Andy says:

    Maybe the designer of the app can take something from this guy’: http://holothere.tumblr.com/post/30947966584/utorrent-holo

  8. Geoff says:

    I agree with the other comments: awesome concept and glad to have it, but really could look much better. You did well listening to feedback after uTorrent Remote by releasing a dedicated Android uTorrent app, I hope you listen to the feedback here and update the app to not look like it was designed to run on Donut.

  9. Steve says:

    What are the differences between this and the Bittorrent Android app?

    I have not been able to find an option to turn off seeding; preferably selective seeding. Could someone from the uTorrent team please post here and clarify? Or anyone else who might know! Thanks! :)
