Downloading torrents – otherwise known as file sharing – became prominent alongside the increased popularity of the internet. As more people went online, more files were uploaded onto the web, and more people wanted to download them.

Suddenly you didn’t have to buy a CD to listen to music, or buy a DVD to watch a movie. That was a great advancement, it meant that entertainment could be spread to the masses, for free, with no strings attached.

Millions of people download files in this way. And millions more continue to jump onto the bandwagon, becoming aware of the great benefits of doing so. In fact, for most people, torrenting is just something that comes hand-in-hand with going online. This is especially true for young people, who often don’t even realize that file sharing is still technically not legal in a lot of cases.

But this doesn’t deter many from using the file-sharing services. After all, when it’s either that, or pay hundreds of dollars for all the entertainment you want for the month… well, we think we know what we’d rather do.

Seeing as so many people download torrents, it’s no wonder that there became a hierarchy of torrent softwares to manage these downloads. The one that came out on top was uTorrent. The software allows you to find torrent online, and then open them in the software, where they then download securely (somewhat), and can be unpacked after downloading.

If you’re going to download torrents, then it’s best to do it in this way. The software giant has recently released the uTorrent app for Android, which is even available on Google Play, and has more than 100 million downloads and 2.5 million reviews (averaging 4.5 out of 5 stars).

Why Download uTorrent APK for Android?

Although there are lots of torrent downloaders for Android, they don’t all have the same level of trust that uTorrent has.

Quite simply, this is the most popular torrent downloader, and has been for as long as we can remember. It has the trust of hundreds of millions of users, and therefore you can safely conclude that it isn’t up to any funny business. This is always something that should be taken into account when downloading an app online.

Let’s look at some of the other reasons to download uTorrent for Android.

Download speed

Yes, different torrent downloaders work at different speeds. This depends on the distribution protocol that they have for peer-to-peer (P2P) sharing. In other words, uTorrent allows you to share files with multiple people at the same time, so you can download a file from 50 ‘seeders’ (people who are sharing the file) simultaneously. This ensures that your file downloads super fast.

Bandwidth allocation

You can make downloads complete even faster than they usually would be allocating more bandwidth to uTorrent. Bandwidth is the amount of “internet power” you give different tasks when online – the more you give one task, the faster it will load. You should bear in mind that if you give more bandwidth to one task, then other tasks will get less a result. This means that your browser may produce results slower while downloading files – especially if you’ve given those downloads a massive bandwidth allocation.


We love free things at Top1Apk, and uTorrent (keeping with the spirit of file sharing), operates as a free to install software, allowing you to download files whenever you want, totally free.

Easy to use

Don’t worry about being confused about how to use the app. It’s the same interface as the PC version. Quite simply, you just download a file online (choose the torrent option – usually displayed as a little magnet) and then it will open in uTorrent. You can check the progress of your downloads in the interface, and then open the files in your device once they’re complete.

Multiple downloads

You’re not limited to one download at a time. Assuming your phone has some processing power, and you’ve got an effective internet connection, you’ll be able to handle multiple downloads with ease. It will slow your phone down a little due to the processing power being used (same when you download anything), but you can have up to ten downloads working simultaneously.

No limits

There are no limits to the size of files you can download. Want to use up all 160GB of your phone’s storage on a 4K ultra-HD version of the entire Game of Thrones library? Well, you can… although, maybe that’s not the wisest move. Your choice.


uTorrent is a known and trusted name online, which hundreds of millions of people are currently using to download torrents. You don’t have to worry about the app doing anything cheeky. On top of this, don’t worry about the legality of it. uTorrent is totally legal to download (hence why it’s on Google Play Store), but having said that, downloading pirated content – movies that have been filmed in the cinema, for example, is illegal, so you shouldn’t do that.

How to Download uTorrent APK for Android

If you’re looking to use this app, then simply press the download button at the top of this page. Once the app has installed, you can open it and follow the instructions.

If you want to download something, you’ll have to find the torrent online (Pirate Bay is a good source for this) and then press the little red magnet button to download it as a torrent. It will open in uTorrent, once you’ve selected it as the default app for this process. From there, it will download, and you can open it in your device’s files once it’s done.

We recommend that you also download the Pirate Bay Browser app to always be able to access the Pirate Bay on your phone, and always have access to the best torrents. This app is also free and totally safe and legal to install. You won’t find this one on Google Play Store, though. To get it, you can find it on, and follow the instructions on the download page to learn how to install it.

We hope that you enjoy using these great apps, and have access to all the files you want to download, with ease.
