uTorrent was launched more than 6 years ago. The application started in 2005 as a very simple and at the same time very useful client, which managed to reach the perceptive BitTorrent community. With the time passing, audience of uTorrent expanded from advanced users and computer experts to ordinary people, grandparents, kids and mothers. The key to success was the client’s relentless development, which made it an extremely user-friendly application able to do more than just downloading.
BitTorrent Inc., uTorrent’s parent corporation, made an announcement recently to confirm that uTorrent application has officially exceeded 100 million monthly users. In other words, uTorrent has become the #1 BitTorrent application. For example, in comparison to the ever used social network Twitter, the BitTorrent client managed to quadruple its users over the last 3 years.
Shahi Ghanem, Chief Strategist at BitTorrent, claimed that this figure can be considered a big milestone for the application, adding to what has already been a tremendous year of growth for uTorrent. He thanked the users of the client and overall global community for the “amazing support”. The client developers assured that they took every bit of user feedback to heart when modifying uTorrent. They also promised to remain committed to keeping the client the fastest and easiest BitTorrent application in the world.
At the moment, hundreds of thousands of people download the client every day. However, this is not the most important part of success – the real challenge is to keep them using the application, because numerous surveys revealed that that not all of them become regular users. In order to make this happen, the BitTorrent Inc. developers had to make a lot of changes to its client over the past months. The main purpose of the company was to make the client as easy-to-use as possible for the inexperienced users. For example, uTorrent introduced such feature as the “simplified view”. This allowed the client to keep focus on the essential capabilities of the application.
In addition, the company promised that a paid version would be introduced later in 2011: uTorrent Plus, the brand of this new client, will offer a number of new features, including the ability to convert videos and transfer data to external devices. BitTorrent Inc. promised to reveal more details in the following weeks.

|I think with the paid version UTorrent may find themselves slipping down the scale .. there are a few new clients out there and if they deliver on their promises could be pretty good.|
"Tixati is a slick new torrent program authored by the architect of the WinMiX OpenNap program. Definitely a sophisticated and forward-thinking client, Tixati is already embracing the shift towards trackerless torrent swarming: magnet links, PEX, and DHT swarming works very well in Tixati. The throttling features and wide range of priority adjustments will make any fussy P2P user quite happy, and you'll find that download speeds are at least as fast as Vuze and uTorrent. The bitfield graphs and 'executive dashboard' display is very professional, and this product easily earns itself a spot amongst the best torrent clients today. Definitely try Tixati for torrent P2P needs."

|Oh No, i guess i will need to start looking for another UTORRENT app. Too bad it was so great while it lasted.|
Hey notice how the more modern some apps get the worst they become.
|Should be optional, or like make a donate option in the utorrent menu and site, so people can choose to support or not, if people really support something they would show in action|
