Torrents are usually mentioned in negative ways, as in ways to download illegal content, but there’s a ton of legit content available via torrent websites, and in order to get to it, you’ll need a proper torrent application. There are a ton of torrent apps available in the Play Store, though not all of them are good, of course. Because of that reason, we’ve hand-picked 10 torrent apps that we think are worth your time. Do keep in mind that these apps are not listed in a specific order.
Flud is one of the most reliable and most popular Torrent apps available via the Play Store. This application comes with a flat design, and all the torrent features you may want, not to mention that it has a dark theme. This app uses BitTorrent protocol, and it has no download / upload speed limits. RSS feed support with automatic downloading is included in this application, while the app also has magnet link support. µTP and PeX are supported by Flud, and these are only some of the features this app offers.
µTorrent has far more downloads than Flud, and it’s generally a better-known app, as this torrent client has been available for desktops for the longest time, and it’s mostly reliable as well. Flat design is a part of this app as well, and it also uses BitTorrent protocol to download content. This app combines white and green colors to create a rather unique UI, and there are all sorts of additional features included in this app, along with ads… a paid version is available, though, same as with Flud.
