In spite of their controversial reputation, torrents are a unique form of file sharing that also have legitimate uses. Not only do they allow users to find and download applications or files that are hard to find, but they also do not put any strain on anyone’s connection due to their flexible modus operandi.
PicoTorrent is a small piece of software that enables you to download and upload files using a peer-to-peer connection at higher speeds but with minimal impact on the system’s resources.
Comes with a clean and intuitive interface
After a quick installation, you are welcome by a clean and appealing interface that is built directly on the Windows API. The main window enables you to preview the list of torrents in the queue along with the standard details you expect from a BitTorrent client, namely estimated download time, download and upload speed, ration, seeds and peers.
You should know that you can move files up and down the queue based on your priorities and project specifications, a feature that can be useful for users who have a poor Internet connection. At the same time, if you do not have too much free space on your computer, you can quickly remove the torrents and the files that have been downloaded.
Allows you to set download and upload limits
The highlight of the application stems from the fact that you can manage torrent files individually by accessing the details function from the context menu. Therefore, besides viewing statistics, peers and trackers about the data, you can configure the minimum and maximum download and upload speeds. Moreover, you can define the maximum connections and the uploads that the app should allow.
Moreover, you can define the maximum connections and the uploads that the app should allow. It is worth mentioning that the program supports magnet links and consequentially, you can get your hands on the desired BitTorrent files even faster and easier.
The application does not enable you to create torrents and does not have a search function that permits you to find new content. Therefore, you need to locate and download the torrent files from other sources.
A small and lightweight BitTorrent client
