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.

I was definitely skeptical about making the change from Azureus--with its feature-galore repertoires. However, implementing PeerGuardian with Transmission..its safe to say I will be removing Azureus from my machine ;)

Only gripes I have is I wish there would be a Filter for showing "Currently Active" Transfers..and not just ones that are "Seeded". Also, a prompt of what files to select from a torrent a la Azureus would be nice, instead of adding it, then using the Inspector to uncheck what you don't want.

I just upload the new 0.81 version of the software, and there's no problem any more.
Furthermore, my speed is better than with the earlier.
Nice !

Beautiful app! Clean and speedy! Just the way that mac'ers love! It has few features but I think it's designed for quick downloads from open torrents! I use this!

The new version has eliminated any need for any other torrent clients on my mac.

buggy! has crashed already three times.

I love the versatility of this Torrent utility. And all of the information accessible.

it is a very sleek client, however it doesn't support encrypted transfers, which mean that seeding at very important trackers such as oink is no possible. very nice client, but it does lack important functionalities. easier and more pleasant than azureus, utorrent is still however the best by far (damn it!)

I was excited to hear that a Mac version of uTorrent was in the works, but now that Transmission can do selective file downloading, it really doesn't matter much. Transmission is, in my opinion, the best bittorrent client for any platform, with its clean, unbloated interface.

Now that the latest version has downloading of individual files this is the perfect bittorrent client on the mac. I find it much faster than Azureus for downloading. It uses less resources and is much more intuitive to use. Great work!
