Review uTorrent Beta

Jay Feldman
6.3Good
Minimalist design
Malware magnet, weak functionality
uTorrent Beta for Android is exactly like BitTorrent. If you know what a torrent is, you’ll probably want this app; if you don’t, my advice is to steer clear.
uTorrent Beta is yet another torrent downloader app that really does nothing but attract malware and viruses. The concept is simple: browse torrent files within the app, or initiate a search of your own, then download everything your heart desires for free. And right out of the gate, that’s where this app falls apart. The search tool doesn't actually return any downloadable results within the app itself, rather, it just opens your browser and returns a bunch of Google search results where you can visit websites and initiate downloads manually. So in essence, this app is little more than a link to Google search results.
Downloads initiated within the app functioned fine, but the selection is pretty useless. So that invites searches across the internet. The problem with that is, if you have any experience at all with torrents, you already know that searching for a viable torrent to download is like having sex with a hooker, minus the condom – you’re just asking to pick up something that ain’t gonna end well for ya. (No, I’ve never been with a hooker, but for some reason, torrents make me feel dirty and used all the same.)
Just for sake of argument, I did try to download a torrent to see of the app would kick in as it’s supposed to and handle the data transfer. And…. nope, it didn't. What did happen, is the alleged torrent I was trying to download was actually a rogue APK that probably would have compromised my system if I let it complete.
In short, uTorrent Beta is useless at downloading torrents but very adept at catching you a nasty virus. My advice: pay for your movies, music and programs the honest way and forget about torrents.

i have 816 dual sim, but i am not able to download torrent movies on my SD card, it is download only phone memory, can any one help on that
Brandon Girod
Are you not prompted on where to save the file when you download it? If it not, there should be a place in the settings where you can dictate the default path.

Having problem DL mp4 movies on s5 tried thor and one other both start to DL, then pause and an exclamation pops saying error: cannot write to disk
Alexander Vorobyev
Hm, that's pretty strange. I don't think it's about Thor or any other kind of data encryption. Have you tried checking whether there's enough space on your device HDD?
