BitTorrent celebrates 100 million app downloads with version 3.4

There are around 100 million people (or devices) that have apparently downloaded the BitTorrent and uTorrent mobile apps, and the developers couldn't be happier with this milestone, which has more than doubled since their last announced landmark which was 40 million back in November 2013. And as a treat for mobile users, they have released version 3, bringing improvements to its core, as well as providing a built-in music and video player to make it easier to play your downloads.

BitTorrent Sync 1.4: an easier way to share huge files

Everyone is all about the cloud these days, from temporary storage, to backup solutions, to ad-hoc sharing of files with others.

That is where BitTorrent Sync comes in.
