Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) November 02, 2011

Macadamian, a global leader in software product creation, today announced popular blog and review site Lifehacker named uTorrent, an application developed by BitTorrent in conjunction with Macadamian, as the best BitTorrent client for Mac. Lifehacker’s ‘The App Directory’, a new and growing directory of recommendations for the best applications and tools, cited uTorrent’s great feature set, admirable flexibility, overall speed as reasons for this win.

uTorrent is a freeware, closed source client owned by BitTorrent, Inc using the BitTorrent peer to peer protocol for distributing files in small pieces without the need for centralized data centers. It is the most widely used BitTorrent client outside China with over 100M users. Originally limited to the Microsoft Windows Platform, BitTorrent engaged Macadamian to create a Mac OS X version of its popular client.

“We knew Macadamian had a history of developing commercial products for Mac OS X and we felt we would be able to get uTorrent to market faster by working with a firm with that kind of experience,” says BitTorrent’s Vice President of Engineering, Ilan Shamir. “Macadamian was clearly the right partner for this project.”

To meet the requirements of both BitTorrent and the Mac user community, Macadamian employed its proprietary visual design and agile development processes to ensure that the interface would behave precisely in the way that Mac users expect.

Lifehacker’s App Directory reviewed several BitTorrent clients for Mac before choosing uTorrent as the winner. The site, which receives roughly 20 million visitors a month, is a leading online source for lifestyle improvement and enhancement of the online experience.
