    Moderator note: Torrents and talk of them are OK as there are many legitimate and legal uses.

    There's nothing illegal about BitTorrent, torrent applications are free and legal to use. The problem is the general public holds to a misguided perception that it's only used by those who use it to illegally share copyright-protected content. But in the real world, it's just a peer-to-peer file sharing technology. As an example, if you're a developer and you want to distribute your product you have the option to maintain and fund your own server with it's corresponding costs (upload bandwidth isn't free), or use a online file server service (also not free), or buffer your costs by relying on torrenting.

    Unsure if Transmission is available for a phone, but I use it in both Windows and Linux. Small footprint and works well. I just make sure to enable my VPN prior to use.

    I personally will not touch any version of Torrent, I don't trust allowing my PC to talk to numerous PCs anywhere in the world, and possibly receiving a hacker's finger on my pc.

    I want to know the validity of the website that I download from.

    And yet that's the fundamental way any computer or mobile device gets connected to anything online. Every time you browse any web site, you're essentially just networking your computer to another computer over the Internet (typically multiple computers as most web pages consist of text, images, and cruft from several different servers in various locations).

    Absolutely available, I just use WiFi to reduce data consumption.

    I use AndFTP and paid Seedbox/server with ruTorrent installed on it. Reason it is the best is because you do not use data seeding back and you also get max speeds download.

    My VPN provider supplies me with a custom version of uTorrent.

    Wow, just wow. AZgl1500, find a little program called "Tcpview". You can get it alone or in the "Sysinternals Suite" which was written by current Microsoft Employees.

    Just loading this page from an "about:blank" page in your browser makes about 40-50 separate internet connections. That falls off to about 10-15 connections as you sit on the page.

    I think the point being made is that any connected device, regardless of platform, will have multiple connections open, many of which are perfectly legitimate but are not immediately obvious to the end user.

    In any case, it's not really pertinent to the OP's question so let's keep this thread on-topic. ;)

    Thank you all for answers I really didn't expect that much and I appraised it! Since my last post I have downloaded Nova torrent downloader. I've been using it a lot and I mean a lot. I downloaded about 200 music and its working fine for now. And what I really like is inbuilt search engine. Any other of you use this torrent?

    I'm a mac user too, and I've tried both µTorrent and Bittorrent, i can tell you that when using Bittorrent, it won't let me select the files from the torrent that i wish to download. And, is slower to run, takes more space, and the connection to the torrents are apparently slower. Hope this helps.

    I use Transmission on a Mac, and Linux sometimes, and it's very satisfactory. Very light, can select individual files from a torrent, suspends and resumes torrent downloads OK, etc.
