UltraTorrent is a tool that allows you to search for torrents and download the corresponding files. It's useful if you frequently download videos, music and other types of torrents and you want a single application that will allow you to find torrents without opening a browser window.
UltraTorrent's major feature is an advanced torrent search tool that combs through Btjunkie, Isohunt, BitSnoop, Mininova, Reactor, H33t and a ton of other trackers to find files. These trackers vary greatly in quality and security, so be careful when using the search feature. Many of the torrents contain also pirated media.
We recommend scanning every download with a capable virus checker before opening anything at all. With that being said, UltraTorrent's search feature makes it easy to find virtually anything you could possibly want to download. If you're cautious, it's an extremely powerful tool.
The program shows your upload and download speeds at the top of the screen as you browse for torrents. You can also change a few basic preferences, review your completed torrents, delete torrents straight from the program's main interface and carry out other simple tasks. Everything is pretty straightforward.
The biggest problem with UltraTorrent is its limited settings menus. If you're used to programs like uTorrent and Azure, UltraTorrent's settings will seem extremely stripped down. The limited settings make it very difficult to set up your torrents properly if you are an advanced user.
Ultimately, UltraTorrent's audience is casual computer users. It's light on your system resources and light on advanced features, but if you've never used torrents before, this is a fine place to start. However, remember to exercise some caution in order to use this torrent program safely and legally.
