Client BitTorrent For Mac PowerPC

Task of the day: To find a good client bit-torrent for Mac PowerPC.  In the beginning I couldn’t easily find any good applications, but as the research kept going, more options keep popping up, and where I thought I’d have no options, I found a few…

These days there are so many ways to download, but having a torrent client installed is one of the best ways to ensure you get what you want, when you want it.

* Bits on Wheels – This app is very simple and easy to use.  It’s native Mac torrent client.  Runs on PPC 10.3 or later.  http://www.bitsonwheels.com/

* FrostWire – It’s an Open Source and it’s very fast to download.  Runs on PPC 10.5 or later.  http://www.frostwire.com/

* Tomato Torrent – It’s easy to use and very clean interface, one of the best options to download torrents.  Also supports 10.2 / 10.3 / 10.4 or later that’s really helpful.  http://sarwat.net/bittorrent/

* Vuze – The best Torrent Client for a PPC 10.4, it’s easy to set-up and start using, simple, fast and dynamic.  The interface is very clean and organized.  http://www.vuze.com/ 

After I wrote this post I found out another great application to make sure your torrents will be downloaded.  Xtorrent – It’s an easy to use torrent downloader.  It kind of reminds me of  iTunes.  http://www.xtorrentp2p.com/

I hope you guys enjoy the post, if you like you can subscribe or just leave me a comment or feedback.  I will try to find more available apps for PowerPC. If you have any suggestions, please share them with us!  We are a small but steady group of Mac supporters…and I’d like to keep options coming our way!

*Transmission – One of the most famous app to download torrent and thanks to Andre who shared the link with us.  Now who have PowerPC inside will be able to use this great app.  Run in Panther / Tiger / Leopard.  https://trac.transmissionbt.com/wiki/PreviousReleases

  1. Which version of Vuze? I tried 4.0 and 4.1, and both installers did not even open on my Powerbook G4, PowerPC1.67 ghz, 2 gig sdramm, MacOS X 10.4.11

  2. Another vote for the older PPC builds of Transmission here… Transmission has a very nice web server built in that you can access remotely on an iOS device to control your torrent downloads when you’re not even at home.
