aDownloader is a native bit torrent (bittorrent) downloader based on P2P protocol. It uses lots of network ,CPU and memory resources while downloading, thus consumes your battery power quickly,and tons of data will be transferred. It is recommended that you use unlimited data plan like WIFI and plug your phone when downloading. aDownloader is also a HTTP downloader with break-and-resume feature, suitable to download large size using direct HTTP link.

The general steps to use aDownlaoder is:

4. View downloaded files

1. Search torrents/HTTP link
Search torrents using the built-in search engines:
Tap the search icon, enter a term you interested, tap search icon again, or "Done"/"Enter" of soft keyboard, or your phone's hardware search button to begin the search.
aDownloader is a bit torrent downloader, which means that the download rate heavily depends on the seeds and peers available in the p2p network. Try to find torrent with many seeds and peers.
In search, the information like "S:563 L:56", number following "S" stands for number of seeds, number following "L" is number of peers.
Short tap on a search result to initiate the downloading.

2. Select files to download
After you initiate the download, you are prompted to select the files to download in the torrent.

Information "Peers 12/256" means, currently there are total 256 peers found, and 12 peers are connected.

The default seeding time is 1 hour, the seeding task may also finish if the number of seeding task exceeds the "Max Seeding" limit.
You are encouraged to seed as much as possible as this is how bit torrent works.
You may also stop seeding manually, when the task is seeding, you may tap on the task and select "Remove Task" to force the task to finish. Note that "Remove task/files " also remove the downloaded files, use "remove task" to keep the downloaded files. You may select "Sort" to sort the downloading items.
