PicoTorrent Portable Description
Even though they are frowned upon by various digital copyright groups, torrents are still widely used by anyone who is looking for rare applications and files they can use for work or personal projects.
PicoTorrent Portable is a lightweight utility that enables you to download torrent files along with magnet links and reap the perks of the peer-to-peer connection.
Straightforward, as it does not require configuration
The tool does not require setup and since it is portable, it means you can decompress it in any location on your hard disk. While it does not require configuration, you should bear in mind that the output directory is set to a volume with sufficient free space.
Upon launch, you come face to face with a minimalistic, yet clean and appropriate interface that is unlikely to give you any troubles. You can preview the list of torrents along with other useful data, such as size, status, estimated download time, seeds and peers for each file from the main window.
Allows you to manage downloads based on your connection
Functionality-wise, the application is as simple as it gets and your likely challenge would be to find the torrent files you need. You can download a torrent by adding it from the File menu, but unfortunately, the tool does not support drag and drop.
Managing the files can be done from the context menu so that you can configure the maximum number of accepted connections as well as the download and upload speeds. The options can come in handy if your Internet connection is rather weak and you need to access the web while grabbing the files.
On the downside, the app does not come with a search function that would make it easier for you to find the appropriate files for downloading new content. Moreover, you cannot create torrent files to upload via the application.
A clean and nifty BitTorrent client for grabbing files via P2P connection
Regardless of whether you need to download rare files that are only available from other peers or perhaps you want to download certain applications, media or games faster, then PicoTorrent Portable could lend you a hand.
