Transmission

Version: 2.84 || Release Date: 2014-07-01 || License: Other Open Source Developer: Transmission Project 2007 | App Owner: arne

Transmission is a free, lightweight BitTorrent client. It features a simple, intuitive interface on top on an efficient, cross-platform back-end.

Transmission sets initial preferences so things "Just Work", while advanced features like watch directories, bad peer blocking, and the web interface can be configured with just a few clicks. Macworld put it this way: "It's fast, it's extremely lightweight, and — even though it's available for a variety of platforms — it behaves just as you'd expect a Mac program to."

Transmission supports full encryption, file selection, a web-based interface, groups, peer exchange, automatic port forwarding, webseeds, watch directories, tracker editing, global and per-torrent speed limits, and more.

Its code is freely available online and is licensed under either the GNU Public License v2 or the MIT License. The development team welcomes anyone who is interested in contributing code, documentation, translations, or other help.

Only lacking header-encryption like uTorrent or azureus. Otherwise this app simply rocks! Everything a mac app should look and act like.

Transmission is to Torrents what NewsFire is to RSS reading. Absolutely cocoa-gorgeous!

@bruce : Check that both apps uses ports that are open on your router/firewall

Soooo very easy to use and very very simple. No frills, no extra crap, no memory hogging. It just works.

There have been some rather annoying bugs over the releases, but the latest release seems to work pretty flawlessly (so far, anyways).

It is a great software, that handles most torrent needs. There are quite a few complex things that it canot handle, but for those I keep Azureus as a backup.
Definitely give this a try, and I am sure you will fall in love with it.

Transmission gives you pretty much all the BT functionality that you need for a quick DL and wraps it up in a gorgeous little package - perfect little app.

An absolutely amazing application. Looks deliciously aqua, has next to no footprint on my 1.2 G4 iBook and downloads at great speeds. Has some problems with some private trackers cough OiNK cough but it's still in beta so that should fix :)

Amen. Switced from Azureus purely because of the simplicity! Hugging whoever registred this app

It's a beautiful piece of software. BitTorrent is a reasonably complicated system and so, so many tools expose that complexity to the end user. Transmission is a proper, featureless Download Manager. It's stripped back and built exactly the way BitTorrent clients should be.
