There’s no second thought that SoMud is a good software to download P2P files. The interface of the software is well made. The toggle buttons for tasks, that are Downloading, Completed, and Sharing are at the left side of the software’s UI. The main tools, like start, pause, and stop downloads, open torrent file, delete tasks, settings, and file search box etc. are placed in the tool bar.
The software is quite lightweight and downloads fast. But, while installing be careful of the add-on software. There are 3 to 4 additional software, simply skip them, while installing SoMud.
This free torrent client is one of the best torrent file downloading software I have come across. I liked the fact that how easy it is to find almost any file in the P2P network and download them. All that is required from your end is simply type the desired file name in the file search box, and press Enter. The software has a really good and powerful search engine, and gives you the relevant pages of results.
With every search result, you’ll get the necessary file information, that include: category, size, speed, seeds, and source. Next, all you need to do is simply click on the desired file to start downloading it. And, like every other torrent downloader, here also, you can see the download speed, progress, time left, peers, comments etc.
One really good thing about this free file downloader is you can choose which files to download, that are contained inside a torrent file. Simply, click on the main torrent file and, you’ll get the contained files at the bottom pane. Simply, uncheck the unnecessary ones.
The software has multiple purposes, besides just downloading files. After a download, you can directly open it, or open the folder where it got saved. Simply right click on the downloaded file, you’ll get a context menu. Or, you can go to Utility Tools menu, and click on Play MP4/FLV video. This Utility Tools menu is pretty powerful menu item. It further consists of Capture audio/video and Verify file integrity options.
Using Capture audio/video option, you can record the screen activities and then save them locally. And, by using the Verify file integrity option, you can verify the downloads by using their Hash tags.
The software also lets you schedule system shutdown so that system automatically shuts down once file download is complete.
