BitTorrent has announced a milestone for its suite of mobile apps: 10m downloads in the last year since the release of its first app, BitTorrent Remote. The company now has six apps available across iOS, Android and Windows Phone, and has broken down the downloads thus: “BitTorrent Remote apps have been downloaded 4.7 million times. Our BitTorrent Android client has been downloaded 1.5 million times. And our µTorrent (uTorrent) Android client, introduced just three months ago, has been downloaded 3.8 million times.” Meanwhile, 25% of users of the uTorrent Android app say they’re using it every day, and 45% once or twice a week. The figures show the growing scale of mobile BitTorrent usage, although that’s not something that will necessarily be welcomed with beaming smiles by music rightsholders.
