In order to make the most of the popular peer-to-peer networking technology, you need a simple – yet sophisticated – and fast torrent download tool. The web is full of them, but Free Torrent Download is one of the few that offer you a simple interface combined with a powerful connection algorithm that will have you downloading your torrent files in no time.

This free program shares the same look and feel as other torrent download programs, though it lacks some of the functionality available in the most widely used ones. This functionality can be usually found in the advanced settings section of those other clients, but if what you are looking for is a fast and easy-to-set-up torrent client, Free Torrent Download will entirely meet all your expectations. Downloading torrents are neatly listed in the program’s main panel, together with useful information about the download and upload speeds, the number of seeders and peers, the estimated time of accomplishment, or the size of the files to be downloaded, among others. Below this panel you’ll find four tabs with more specific information about the files, the transfer and general information, the peers, and the trackers associated to the selected torrent. Downloads can be stopped, paused, resumed, and removed at any time.

You can also create and seed your own torrents with Free Torrent Download. I couldn’t find in the torrent creation dialog the possibility of producing a “private torrent”, which is a requisite for some trackers. This won’t prevent you from creating and sharing your own torrents in most other trackers, though.

All in all, Free Torrent Download is an excellent P2P client. It manages your system’s download capabilities so that your P2P activities don’t interfere with other Internet-based programs running in your system, such as Skype or your favorite online game. And this is a feature that not many other torrent clients can boast of. I recommend you give it a try – if you’re not too picky about those expert settings, you’ll surely be delighted with the results.
