Way back in May, uTorrent 's Project Griffin gave us a sneak peek at its new App Studio
. Today, the new version has gone live -- and uTorrent 2.2
will be bringing app support to its 65 million users. Among the app options on launch day are BitDefender's Virus Guard, TuneUp (which we've covered before
), and content apps for TED, ZuluMusic, and VODO
. There's also TorrentTweet, which lets you post status updates about specific files. On the privacy side of things, uTorrent 2.2 makes it easier for users to configure and use proxies -- a welcome improvement for those of you looking for a bit of anonymity while you transfer files.
The uTorrent installer -- like many other free apps -- also includes a bundled toolbar and offers to switch your homepage and default search at the end of the process. Make sure you untick the boxes unless you actually want what's being offered.
