Open source file-sharing company BitTorrent launched an upgraded client software and also added the App Studio as a full feature to the entire μTorrent user base.
The App Studio enables one-click downloads and new features right inside μTorrent. Users will have access to content from TEDTalks, films from VODO, and music from ClearBits. Other apps include social media/sharing features like TorrentTweet and utility apps TuneUp and BitDefender?s VirusGuard and games from Raptr and Outspark.
Also BitTorrent has teamed up with VODO again to release "Four Eyed Monsters," an award winning docudrama that chronicles the relationship of a couple who meet on the Internet. There's a custom app in the App Studio, which makes it easy to download the film and gives background information, access to social media profiles, images and a link to support the creators.
The creators of Four Eyed Monsters are the latest to embrace the BitTorrent and μTorrent distribution channel as part of an effort to reach our community of over 80+ million users, and experiment with new digital business models. This is part of BitTorrent's broader effort to bridge the gap between content creators and its community through the App Studio and other promotions. In September, BitTorrentannounced a Feature Artist Pilot Program, which encourages musicians and filmmakers to submit creative works for the chance to be spotlighted to BitTorrent users around the world.
The updated version of μTorrent includes several feature enhancements, including full support for μTP, an upgraded lightweight BitTorrent protocol, transport and congestion control support; improved magnet link handling; file relocation features; advanced proxy privacy features; and many more.
