Now that most of us have High Sierra installed on our Macs with all its new cool features along with compatibility changes. For all those who use torrent apps for downloading, uploading and managing torrents, it is important to know which apps are fully compatible with the latest macOS and which ones are of course the best.
To decide whether a torrent client is good or not so good and whether it makes the cut for users, many factors have to be taken into consideration. Such things as magnet links support, sufficient downloading speed, OS compatibility matter the most. We wanted to make sure that each app we tested could make the best torrent client for High Sierra. Also a good quality torrent client has to be user friendly and clean of any malware.
So let's get started with our list that will hopefully help you in choosing your top torrent client for High Sierra.
Folx is a well-known and popular download manager and High Sierra torrent app with the most convenient way of downloading multiple torrent files: prioritize tasks, adjust download and upload speeds, tag downloads for quick location on computer.
With Folx you can download regular torrents from trackers and those available through magnet links. Magnet links are rather popular now and make downloading and sharing of bittorrent content quite simple.
PRO version of this top torrent app for High Sierra offers torrent search through a variety of trackers at the same time without leaving the app. Also the download and upload speeds can be adjusted automatically and you can schedule your torrent downloads.
Transmission is fast and also widely used. Its strong suit is being light on RAM. This macOS High Sierra torrenting program also supports magnet links and is able to find local systems connected to your system. Transmission has a very straightforward interface that is easy to understand. It is a free app that doesn't play any tricks on its users to lure them in ad traps.
uTorrent is a lightweight app maintained by BitTorrent itself. With this torrent app for High Sierra you can search for torrents from the app and prioritize the downloads just like in Folx. It also resumes stopped downloads, supports encrypted files, supports remote control via mobile apps, and allows you to schedule your downloads.
Deluge is a cross-platform torrent client that also works great on High Sierra. It's built on GTK+, so its interface looks a lot like Linux Gnome. This app can be complicated for some users, it is quite heavy weight, but supports various plugins, which may be interesting to more advanced torrent fans. There is no advertising or unwanted plugins forced on you, on the contrary thi app offers features the community needs, such as private downloads, password protection, scheduling and bandwidth features.
Xtorrent is a good looking well designed BitTorrent client for High Sierra with its sections properly differentiated for easy understanding. This software is free to download and use but in case you want a sufficient download speed, you'll need to buy a paid version.
Vuze has a lot to offer including convenient torrent search directly from the app interface. Vuze can actually play the files you downloaded and can play on a device connected to MacBook. It is not as easy to use, as say Transmission or uTorrent, but has such advanced features as sending files to different target locations.
BitTorrent’s official app for High Sierra is also a good option with useful features. It is light on system resources, is absolutely free and downloads at a normal speed rate. The interface is simple, the torrent search box is built in the app. It offers limited download statistics though, and for some it can be a deal breaker.
