Xtorrent
Download and manage torrents in OS X with Xtorrent

Reliable torrent clients for OS X are few and far between, but Xtorrent is a solid performer that makes it easy to download files using the BitTorrent protocol. There is no need to rely on visits to torrent sites to track down files as a search facility is built into Xtorrent. By default this will search a limited number of sites, but you can easily add others.

Working with multiple simultaneous download is make simple with a neatly implemented download queue. This makes it easy to pause and prioritise downloads, control the number of downloads that can run at any given time and override the rules you have put in place when the need arises.

A native 64-bit program, Xtorrent takes full advantage of Snow Leopard and operates quickly without being a drain on system resources. There is also iTunes integration so the files you download can be automatically exported ready for syncing with your portable device.

Built in support for RSS feeds means that it is possible to keep up to date with the latest content from your favourite sites and you can share links via Twitter in a couple of clicks. Features such as bandwidth scheduling, search suggestions and automatic port configuration make Xtorrent a joy to use.
 

Verdict:

Xtorrent is everything a torrent client should be and benefits from its light footprint and speedy operation.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
