uTorrent instantly becomes the best BitTorrent client for Android

Play Store today, and it has already become the best option for Android users. You have all of the features you'd expect, including searching for torrents, downloading only specific files from a torrent, and even support for subscriptions. The built in subscription is for BitTorrent Featured Content, but the UI layout is a bit strange there. It's a horizontally scrolling row of small tabs with a ton of grey space below. Strange.Anyway, uTorrent Beta was released into the Google
Still, it is just a beta, so there are bugs and limitations. We had it crash a couple times when trying to select an item from the Featured Content list, and search is limited to a simple Google search, and not through a dedicated site. If you want to give it a try, it's available for free in the Play Store.

exactly, android is all about freedom, all mobile os should be liked this, not an os that limits you to the functionalities and features that a phone that should have. worst is one company stop using some useful features that a phone should have because they say they patented it. freedom of choice what consumers need. utorrent is my default torrent client in my pc, i will give a shot in my gtab 7.7 too if it works well.

Am I the only one here who has noticed the BitTorrent app in Google Play? It's free, and while it is in beta, it still works perfectly...

You should not worry about OS. That's not who will restrict you. Worry about the cell carriers and the media controllers like Apple, Sony, Verizon. etc. And their willing partners in the news media and government

aDownloader is the best. No download/upload limits on that one and its free! I'll use BitTorrent when its out of beta.

Agreed. Stupid utorrent was updated weeks ago, and has a stupid bug where upon downloading the info for a magnet link stops the torrent. You then have to force it to stop, but cannot force it before it gets the info to download from the magnet link. If transmissionbt gets onto android, screw utorrent.

I don't get it. I'm using BitTorrent on my phone and I'm not experiencing any problems at all. How is uTorrent different from BitTorrent?

You can select individual files from within the torrent. I've not found that ability in BitTorrent.
