Transmission

Version: 2.82 || Release Date: 2013-08-09 || 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.

Each new build is better than the prior. The collapsible label stacks are great for those who are very particular about torrent organization.

Absolutely easy and transparent. ****

Transmission is fatastic!! I have a firewalled internet connection but it works perfectly! :)

Nice app.
I love it.

Lightyears ahead of Azureus in terms of taking up less computer power and maintaining connections. Torrents download significantly faster with it as well. 5/5 stars.

Finally transmission gets back to being good!

I used Transmission a few years ago, and I didn't like it. It has come on very strongly since then, and it's now the main torrent app I use on the Mac.

A killer app for torrents that manages to beat uTorrent in simplicity and usability. Highly recommended!

there is nothing this is missing. there's nothing it doesn't need. just perfect!

1.0 has every feature I ever used on Azureus and is faster and more mac friendly. Safe to say im not going to use Azureus anymore.
