Free Torrent Viewer is a P2P client for Windows computers. It allows you to download torrent files and to connect to Gnutella networks to find and share files. The application packs the functionality of both a torrent client and an application like Emule in one. This goes against the developer's claims that this application is lightweight. I noticed that the application was a bit slow at times.

The first thing that I did when I opened this application was open a torrent file, to test how well (or not) the application performed. The torrent took a little over 2 minutes to start downloading. And it didn't reach an optimal speed during the time I spent with this application.

The part of the application that downloads from Gnutella networks didn't work much better than the torrent part. I carried out a search for a popular singer, and all I got were 100 results. I tried to download some of those, and the status of the transfer remained "pending".

Free Torrent Viewer comes built-in with a media player and a search engine for Gnutella networks. The media player is perhaps the only part of this application that functioned as expected.

Review summary

Pros

  • It combines a Gnutella client and a BitTorrent client all in one.

Cons

  • I couldn't get many results from searches and the torrent that I tested it with never achieved nominal speed.
