    3. Use the search button in the torrent client to find your desired torrent.
    4. Alternatively, open any torrent site like kickasstorrents, extratorrent, isohunt, mininova, h33t etc.
    5. Search your required torrent and download it.
    6. Open the torrent using any file manager, select utorrent, BitTorrent or ttorrent to open it.
    7. As soon as you open the torrent selecting any torrent client, it will ask you for the location where you want it to be downloaded.
    8. Select the location and torrent downloading will begin.
    9. Whenever your internet gets disconnected or the connection is out of reach, the torrent will automatically pause.
    10. It will resume the download upon connecting the WiFi.
    11. Using the settings icon at the bottom, you can set download limit if you want, by default its “0” that means unlimited.

Using BitTorrent:

BitTorrent is another app by the developers of uTorrent, BitTorrent Inc. The app is quite similar to uTorrent, is available for free and a paid version is there as well.

The working functionality, layout, settings are same as that of uTorrent, follow the guidelines explained above to use BitTorrent.

Using tTorrent:

tTorrent is another lite Torrent client for Android based smartphones/tablets. This app is also available in both free and paid versions. The differenceis noticeable here as the free version has a download limit and lots of ads that may bother you. While the paid version has no download / size limits and is ad free as well. Though we highly recommend using uTorrent or BitTorrent, but tTorrent may help you just in case anyone of those doens’t work properly.

That’s all. We hope that this guide helped you to download movies, games and other stuff straight to your Android smartphone. Don’t forget to recommend it to your friends.
