TorrDroid is an Android application that is similar to uTorrent. On top of being a torrent downloader, it also functions as a search engine, just like Google. By combining these two features, TorrDroid makes it easier for its users to search and download torrent files. When you search for a torrent file in TorrDroid, the nearest file to the search term will be presented and ready to be downloaded.

To make it a safe environment for its users, TorrDroid strives to show safe results to download. Although TorrDroid tries its best to deliver the best torrent as per the user’s search, it is still the user’s discretion on what files to download.
