Looking for a killer BitTorrent app on Windows Phone 8.1? Then you're going to want to check out Torrex Pro. It's a new app that came out recently that puts a modern BitTorrent client in your pocket. The app allows you download any torrents and magnets links like a boss. Details after the break.
Torrex Pro is a Windows 8.1 app that has been made a Universal Windows app and now available for those on Windows Phone 8.1. With Torrex Pro you get the following:
- Background downloading
- Download any torrent files
- Download magnet links
We've been playing around with it for a few days and like it a lot. It works well on both Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1. It's really cool to download (legal) torrent files on our Lumia 1520. The UI is fairly spartan and plain, but it gets the job done. It's just incredible to download torrent files like this on our smartphones. We're really liking Torrex Pro on Windows Phone. Though we'll probably avoid using it on our cellular connection, no need for going over our data plans.
Torrex Pro normally will cost you, but both the Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1 versions have been made free temporarily. These price drop to nothing will last about a week. So get them while the getting is good.
Sound off in the comments with your impressions of Torrex Pro! Have any other favorite apps like these on Windows Phone or Windows? Let us know.
