My favorite client

Files arrive 100% perfect. Built-in scheduler. It even has chat if you want that sort of thing. It does everything you want it to do, without all the bloat of certain other clients.

I really like this file sharing client. I test a lot of Linux distributions, and the ability to quickly share large iso files is a must.

Tixati also allows for downloading individual files within a torrent, and relocating downloaded torrents. I haven't run into any tracker problems that other reviewers have suggested.

While writing this review, I downloaded LibreOffice 4.0.2 in about 2 minutes using Tixati. I am also downloading Sage Math (1.62GB) right now using Tixati.

Overall, it's a very clean and fully functional alternative to ĀµTorrent.

The best torrent application I have used. Has extensive options for almost everything you could want to do, on the same level or better than almost any other torrent application. Does not force ads into anything or bloat the application with anything that will never be used by sane people. I've been using it for a good several months now and have not run into any issues or complaints for myself.

The only thing I feel I should mention some people might not like is that the GUI looks a little dated and can be somewhat confusing when you are first getting used to the application, but you quickly learn your way around.

Its best ever torrent client.Its fast ,reliable ,beautiful and best of all free to use.
I have uninstalled uTorrent Pro version and have been using it .
It neither slows down PC nor has sloooow download speed like other clients.
I rate it 5/5. And recommend for every one Who reads it at least once .
The only drawback is it does not have excellent Interface.

Not worth trying
This client looks fine at first sight, but further usage discovers poor quality and attitude.
I must admit it has nice interface, but also has it some ugly bugs and poorly developed features. And the appaling thing is some features present are simply not working properly! The examples are torrents' speed priorities (which are not working), speed limits (which are 100 kB/s at maximum, which is absurd) and beginning and end loading at first (which is not working as well). Also you'll definitely get pissed off when choosing the save path for your torrent, because your recently used folders' list will float beyond the screen's edge, and because every time you need to choose a completely new folder you'll have to pick it all the way from your computer's root folder by folder. There are also other bugs I won't waste time describing.
Another concern about this client is it's a closed source application. It's written on it's site that there's no spyware and stuff included, but without the source code it's just their words that can't be confirmed. And as the amount of spying activity on user's valuable data is rapidly increasing nowadays, the risk you're taking by using it is intolerably high. Yes, your torrents list is valuable, because what you download can tell much about you to those who are interested.
But the most averting thing is the developer's neglection of users. The only source of support in case you need it is the forum, and when I referred to that forum with a question explicitly directed to developers, THEY DIDN'T BOTHER TO ANSWER TO ME AT ALL. If you just respect yourself, you won't be dealing with this neglective attitude.

The software is free, you entitled little child. Use uTorrent like all the other morons if it bothers you so much.

I use this program every day since 2012, most of your comment isn't true. Speed priorities work very well, actually they work better than in any other client, this is one of main reasons why I use Tixati. Speed limits also work OK. You are right, the default max limit is 100kB/s but you can load some other presets with higher speed limits or even set up whole menu by yourself, totally customize it. You can limit recent folders' list length or change it to predefined list of download locations. At load torrent screen you can type destination path by hand after switching one setting. These are nice features but all of them pale when you try Categories. These are really useful in contrast to labels used in more popular clients. Of course there are some bugs and unfortunately Tixati is proprietary but in my opinion it's still better than most other GUI bittorrent clients.
