Despite their reputation, there are many legitimate reasons for torrenting apps. Some legal reasons for using torrents include general file sharing, Linux ISOs, and many other things. Even some artists willingly distribute their work through torrents because it gives them greater reach. Fortunately, there are plenty of them for mobile. If you are in the market, here are the best torrent apps and torrent downloaders for Android!

BitTorrent and uTorrent

Price: Free / $ 2.99 – $ 3.99 (each)

BitTorrent and µTorrent are two torrent applications from the same developer. However, they act differently. The basic set of features is the same between them. This includes Wi-Fi-only download, choosing your storage location, and support for all of the same protocols. This is where µTorrent ends as a basic and straightforward torrent application. BitTorrent continues to promote legal torrents of music and video from independent artists. BitTorrent is decent for discovering music as well as torrenting. µTorrent is better for a simpler torrent application. Both have free versions with advertising. BitTorrent costs $ 2.99 while µTorrent costs $ 3.99.

Checketry

Price: Free / $ 2.99 per month / $ 29.99 per year

Checketry is not a torrent app for Android at first glance. Instead, it lets you manage and track your torrent downloads on your PC. It works with things like Steam, EA Origin, BattleNet, Google Chrome, FireFox, etc. However, for this list, we’re willing to bet you’re more interested in its uTorrent and qBitTorrent support. You just start the downloads in one of these apps and you can monitor it with it from your mobile device. Subscription service is required for all features, but the free version is usable.

Flud Torrent Downloader

Price: Free / $ 1.49

Flud is one of the most powerful torrent apps out there, but for all the right reasons. It has a simple and clear interface. This makes it easier to deal with large torrents. Additionally, the app supports various protocols, magnet links, RSS feed support, large file support, and even a few themes. There really isn’t much wrong with this one. The free version contains ads, unlike the pro version. Otherwise, both versions do the same.

FrostWire

Price: Free / up to $ 25.00

FrostWire is a popular torrent downloader. It has a modern and simple design with good basic functionality. This includes support for .torrent files as well as magnet links. This also offers a torrent search. It’s not very good, but it’s there if you need it. Some other features include a music player and a media browser. They are also decidedly mediocre. Fortunately, the part where it downloads torrents performs very well in our tests. It’s open source and free with ads. You can pay to remove them if needed. Most of the complaints about this one are due to the fact that torrenting is really not that great.

LibreTorrent

Price: Release

LibreTorrent is an open source torrent application with all the basics. It is based on the open source libtorrent code and you can find a link to it in the description of Google Play if you want to read it. The app has a simple material design user interface with light and dark mode. Plus, you can track all of your active torrents. We tried it and didn’t see any issues with it, although some reviews on Google Play dig it up a bit. It’s a great free torrent app overall and the looks tie it all together.

Torrnado

Price: Free / $ 2.90

Torrnado is something a little different. It does not download torrents on its own. Instead, it connects to your computer. This way you see the torrents downloading there. This frees up space and power on your device so that your computer can handle the load. It works with Transmission, a popular cross-platform torrent application for most desktop operating systems. The app allows you to add and remove torrents, view session statistics, and other management features. The free version is a trial. The full version costs $ 2.90.

TorrDroid

Price: Release

TorrDroid is one of the new torrent apps. It includes all the basics. This includes support for .torrent files, magnet links, most protocols, Wi-Fi only downloads, and more. It also offers torrent search. However, like most, it is spotty and inconsistent. The design is simple and easy to use. The app is also free with advertising. Our only gripe is that there is no option to purchase a pro version to remove ads. Otherwise, that’s fine.

Transdrome

Price: Release

Transdrone works a lot like Torrnado. It is a torrent manager application for your computer. It allows you to manage your seedbox or your home server from a remote location. The app can start and stop torrents, add torrents, set priorities, display trackers, etc. The interface is a bit old school for our taste. However, we cannot say that the app is not functional and stable. There is another version of this app called Transdroid. However, it is only available for third-party download from the official website. This one is pretty good, however.

Price: Free / $ 1.99

tTorrent is one of the most popular torrent apps. It has a bunch of features and that includes most of the basics. It downloads torrents, lets you change download settings, and supports magnet links and other protocols. The app even has encryption and a web interface with support for Transdrone and Transdroid. The user interface is modern and simple. Even the pro version is cheaper than the average at $ 1.99. It just ticks all the boxes without complicating things too much.

zetaTorrent

Price: Free / $ 2.99

zetaTorrent is one of the most unique torrent downloader apps. It has a web browser which also includes ad unit, history, bookmarks, etc. So, it tries to be where you browse for torrents and then download them as well. The app also supports torrent management, download settings, support for most RSS protocols, and even Wi-Fi file transfer between it and your PC. It is certainly not easy. However, it ticks a lot of boxes and adds some extra fun stuff. We still believe that a suitable browser is best for research, but it’s a good all-in-one torrent experience.
