We made PicoTorrent to go back to the basics of what is needed from a BitTorrent client. No ads, carefully selected features, and a native user interface integrating seamlessly with your desktop.
PicoTorrent is a tiny BitTorrent client for Windows. It is written in C++ using Rasterbar-libtorrent and the raw Win32 API.
Simple, native user interface
PicoTorrent is built directly on the Windows APIs which means that it is native looking on all Windows versions. We designed it to be as simple as possible to use, and all torrent controls are hidden in context menus.
A few things to note, however
This release is not signed - my code signing certificate has expired. This will be fixed in the future, but for now you might see that SmartScreen tries to block the installation. Click Run anyway to continue past this screen.
The configuration and state has moved into a SQLite database. This can be viewed with any SQLite browser/explorer. The reason being that SQLite makes it easier for us to recover from crashes and unexpected errors.
- GeoIP lookup now available in the peers view.
- Warn when disk space is too low.
- Adding magnet links now work much better - it will now search in the background and update the add torrent dialog when it finds the torrents (if you still have it open).
