BitTorrent Inc. introduced apps for BitTorrent Mainline client 7.1 in order to offer its users a flexible, simple way to extend the client’s functionality and find more new films, music, video games, software and many other great things for entertainment.
In fact, a part of BitTorrent users have already been used to additional functionality from their BitTorrent programs. For example, in Azureus heydays (the application known today as Vuze) users could choose from dozens of plugins. And even though they were not such spectacular features that are available today, it was a notion that a BitTorrent program is able to do more than just share data packets.
uTorrent 2.2 Beta has also seen the same kind of push: the lightweight BitTorrent application surpassed Vuze in popularity long ago thanks to its low memory footprint. Of course, the developers of uTorrent were trying to capitalize on that and created apps for the program, such as Virus Guard or Torrent Tweet, able to provide users with the choice to sacrifice memory for functionality. Besides, uTorrent even introduced the Apps SDK for uTorrent, which allowed third party developers to add apps providing new services and features.
Today BitTorrent Inc. decided to spread app functionality to its BitTorrent mainline client and introduced Release Candidate version 7.1. The developers say that they have always tried to make the client easy and useful, but now they recognized that there were lots of features able to enhance user’s experience – by choice.
And they are right. Since the standard of computer memory has grown in capacity and even laptops sold have at least 3GB, there appeared more wiggle room for BitTorrent users to put up with the kind of memory footprint. It was only back in the days of average memory totaling to maximum 1GB, when added functionality was out of the question. Actually, it was the reason why many users slowly switched from Azureus to uTorrent.
However, today BitTorrent Inc. can capitalize on this progress and provide its large user base with the kind of additional services ensuring that they remain loyal users. As they say, their aim is to provide their consumers with easy access to premium content in order to improve the experience of file-sharing. Thus BitTorrent Inc. makes its first step of its journey into the world of apps and invites its users to join.
