Re: Mac Apps

Your very welcome and asking questions is never dumb!

Smartmom wrote an excellent article on BitTorrent clients which explains fully what a BitTorrent client is and how to use it and download with it.

In this article Smartmon uses the BitTorrent client called uTorrent.

Smartmoms article can be found here

uTorrent is also available for mac's and you can download the mac version of uTorrent here

uTorrent is an excellent BitTorrent Client as well, I use it on my pc.

I hope this is helpful. You will love torrents once you get use to them!
