editor's review





Using the BitTorrent peer-to-peer file sharing protocol is highly recommended, especially when dealing with large file archives. Transmission is a BitTorrent desktop client for Mac OS X that comprises a plethora of useful download management tools.

Working with Transmission should not raise any problems: the installation procedure is reduced to a simple drag and drop to the Applications folder, and the app’s main window provides quick access to the basic functionalities. At the same time, more advanced customization options can be enabled via the app’s menus, or through the Preferences panel.

Add torrents to the download list via drag and drop

To get started, all you have to do is drop the torrent links on top of the Transmission main window and the app automatically opens a new panel where you must specify the output location, set up a group and a priority level, and decide if you want to trash the torrent file or not.

Of course, you can also choose to actually download the torrent file beforehand, and then open it in the Transmission app. Recognizing the files suitable for Transmission is extremely easy due to the automatic extension association.

Powerful download management tools

Transmission provides most of the features one should expect from a BitTorrent client: you can view detailed information about the transfer and connected peers, you can pause and resume the download, and you have the tools to create and share your own torrents.

In addition, Transmission allows you to limit the bandwidth usage, to sort the downloads by different criteria (you have the option to create your own group tags), can work with magnet links, can deal with encrypted transfers, and offers you the possibility to control the app from a remote location.

Versatile and user friendly BitTorrent desktop client for Mac

The minimalist and intuitive design makes Transmission extremely easy to use even by inexperienced users: the downloads can be triggered by simple drag and drop actions, and the app takes care of the rest. On the other hand, Transmission includes flexible customization options that will certainly improve the overall experience for power users.
