This software has seen new features over the years, some of which have been made exclusive to the paid version. I simply use a version that has the features that I want.

See why people like µTorrent 😍

While uTorrent is functionally sound software, it's full of ads and other annoyances. You're on AlternativeTo already. Use it! Pick one of the top open-source alternatives, they're all really great...
