Throughout last 2 weeks both torrentz.eu and kickass torrent were shut down. We relied on those services to provide search functionality for Torrent RT and Torrent Search PRO. Therefore search won't work for these providers anymore. You can still use other providers for search in Torrent Search PRO app, and for Torrent RT we are working on replacement. Sorry for inconvenience.
Thanks to the help of Igor Vozyuk, Torrent RT (just FREE Plus, others are coming) is now translated to Ukrainian language. If your language is missing or machine translated and you are willing to help translating it, please send us an email.
We pleased to announce that today we have released yet another version of our app. Meet Torrent RT FREE Plus. We had some complaints that Torrent RT FREE does not support background option. With Torrent RT FREE you can enable it through in app purchase. It also remove ads and makes application functionally equivalent to Torrent RT.
Few users have complained that all search providers except torrentz have been removed from Torrent RT for Windows 10. The reason is that we had to migrate application to Windows 10 infrastructure due to some bugs with background mode. Besides for Windows 10 we have access to more capabilities, like opening download folder in Windows Explorer.
But unfortunately Microsoft does not support F# for Windows 10 apps, and our search logic is coded in F#. We could migrate that code to C#, but that is a lot of work. Besides Microsoft is officially committed to support F#, hope this will happen soon: https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/110705-universal-windows-platform/suggestions/9110134-f-support-in-net-native-for-uwp02/16/2016
Meanwhile please use Torrent Search PRO app if you need to search providers others than torrentz. As soon as F# become available for Windows 10, we'll add all providers back. And we also plan to add more providers and do combined search. Sorry for bad experience, hope we'll be able to fix it soon.
We have just learned that Torrent RT ended up available on Windows Mobile. We didn't optimize it for Mobile platform yet, and therefore we removed it from Mobile listings. Sorry if you have downloaded or purchased it already. On the bright side, we plan to make it available for Mobile eventually.
Yesterday we have released another major update for Torrent RT/RT FREE apps. Now applications are fully optimized for Windows 10, and issues with background download are resolved.

We have fix for this issue and going to release it soon. Meanwhile please don't use torrentz search provider. Sorry for inconvenience.

Starting from this release Torrent RT would query all trackers defined in torrent file in order to discover as many peers as possible. You can even check how many peers each tracker reports to Torrent RT on a Trackers page. Enjoy blazingly fast download speeds with Torrent RT!!!

Today is our first anniversary. One year ago Surface RT was still missing BitTorrent client and it seemed that nobody was interested to create one. Our small team decided that this should change, and we started experimenting with BitTorrent protocol. It was not clear at that time if it is feasible to implement BitTorrent client using limited WinRT API, or even if Microsoft would allow it to go through certification process. Luckily for us, it worked out, and now world has Torrent RT. Enjoy power of BitTorrent on Windows RT devices!!!
After long development phase we finally released V10 of Torrent RT and Torrent RT FREE to Windows Store.
