Torrex- First BitTorrent Client for Windows RT/ Windows 8

Are you using Windows RT or Windows 8 and want a decent Torrent app to download your Torrents? If yes, then you can download the new BitTorrent client for Windows 8 and RT devices called Torrex. Torrex is the only modern BitTorrent client with ability to work in background, stream video and audio playback. Using the application you can download any torrents and magnet links and start viewing media content in the built-in media player without waiting for the download completion.

The app supports x86, x64 and ARM architectures (Windows 8 and Windows RT) and allows you to add torrent links from a URL or from your desktop using the File Explorer. In the home screen, you can either pick a torrent file locally or using the URL. Once you add the URL, the app recognizes the torrent file and fetches the information from it.


You can set the downloading and sharing options from the settings where you can specify the max download and upload speeds and the number of peers. There is also support for themes from the customize options. The free version has some limitation like no background download (available in pro version only) and also features ads.


You have two payment options, one if just to remove ads and second is to buy the pro version. Both are in-app purchase.


  • Background downloading (Pro version only)
  • Streaming: you can immediately start to watch a movie or listen to music without waiting for download completion
  • Built-in player: you can watch the downloaded media content without switching to another application
  • Download any torrent files
  • Download magnet links
  • Background music playback
  • Snapped mode

Here is a quick video of the app:
