qBittorrent is a free and easy to use client, built as an open-source alternative to µtorrent. Even though it was designed to match any operating system, it seems to fit Mac devices as if it were built-in by default. It provides many great features for both beginners and experienced users, features that we also tested to see how they react.

To start with, anyone using torrent clients will recognize the layout. The side menu located in the left part of the screen will provide access to categories and torrent statuses, while all active torrents will be shown in the upper part of the screen, in the main window. In the lower part users can check more information about the torrent, such as the size, downloaded status, download speed, files, seeds and many others. Anyone can use this information, since they are very well organized into menus and submenus. What is more, qBittorrent is available in over 70 languages, making it even easier for anyone to use it.

The app also comes with a Search feature, which can be used to directly locate files on multiple search engines. What we tested through this client was to see if it could run multiple searches on different keywords, which completed successfully. In addition, the app comes with an RSS support feature, for users to submit feedbacks or to submit more information directly from the app’s interface. After the search is complete, users can select which file to be downloaded, while they take into consideration the name, size, seeders, leechers and search engine.

The extensions supported by this app are multiple. Users can take advantage of similar extensions from other torrent clients, such as encrypted connections, distributed hash table, magnet links, peer exchange protocol, private torrents and many others. In additions, users can set priority and sequence for downloading, not only for torrents but for content as well. Plus, qBittorrent comes with a bandwidth scheduler, IPv6 compliant, with a torrent creation tool and support for port forwarding.

A great feature of qBittorrent is the fact that torrents can be prioritized. We noticed that during lower connections this client tried to split the speed on all torrents. Once we changed the priorities it had already increased speed on highest priority file, applying the bandwidth accordingly. Furthermore, if internet connection runs very slow it is recommended to pause all those which are not urgent, to ensure fast download of the most important torrent.
