Download torrents with ease using uTorrent

BitTorrent provides an easy way to share large files over the internet and the protocol has very quickly gained a huge worldwide following. The low cost of distribution means that BitTorrent is popular with many software publishers, while users benefit from faster downloads and access to a massive range of content. There are scores of torrent clients to choose from, but uTorrent is one of the smallest and fastest available.

The skinnable interface of the program is easy to navigate and features the option to integrate RSS feeds from your favourite torrent sites. Simple controls are available to start, pause and cancel downloads, and speed limiting options can be used to ensure that when seeding completed downloads, your connection is not saturated to an extent that download speeds are adversely affected.

Scheduling can be used to place limits on upload and download speeds at different times of day. This is helpful if your ISP has different usage limits for on- and off-peak hours. You can schedule downloads to trickle in slowly during the day to keep within your monthly transfer limit as well as ensuring that your internet connection is still useable for other purposes, while letting them run at full speed at night when your connection is not needed for anything else and fewer usage restrictions are in place.

A web interface makes it possible to control your torrents from any computer with an internet connection and completed downloads can be automatically moved to a folder of your choice. uTorrent is an excellent example of 'pick up and play' software, with virtually no learning curve and excellent performance.

This is the brand new uTorrent v3. The brand new version includes streaming which enables you to start watching shared video content whilst you are still downloading, a ratings facility so you can judge whether a torrent is worthy of a download, a portable mode so you can take it on a USB stick and much more.

What's new in 3.4.7 (see release notes for more)?

- Do not allow adding single file torrent from webinterface to uTorrent root directory (Security fix)
- Fix regression: move torrent after completion
- Fix potential crash when automatically restoring node selection
- Fix IE frame related crashes
- Mechanism to limit the resources used by Advertisement
- Fix a potential crash in .btsearch parsing

Verdict:

One of the fastest and easiest ways to download and manage torrents.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
