The Pro version comes without any ads or limitation. For the time being, let’s go with the lite version.
2. After you have installed the app, run it. There are two ways in which you can add torrents to the app. Either you can browse for the torrents on web and click on the magnet URI to open the app directly, or you can search for the torrents on the app itself.

To download the torrent simply select the torrent, select the path where you would like to download files and tap the Download button. You can also select the files you wish to skip in the download using the Select File button.
3. The app will start the downloading the torrent. You can minimize the app and carry on with other stuffs on your device. The app will download the torrent in the background and let you know about the progress in the notification drawer.
That’s all; You can download all the torrents right on your Android itself. You can configure settings like active parallel downloads, search engine to search torrents, download and upload limit using the app settings.
If you are looking forward to downloading torrents on your Android device, nothing could do it better than tTorrent. In gist, tTorrent is to Android, just like uTorrent is to Windows. Once the lite version satisfies you, you can go ahead and buy the pro version to remove the download limit.
