If you’re a BitTorrent user, then the opportunities are good that you either use uTorrent, or have actually used it in the past. With 150 million users, the software is the world’s most popular application for downloading from BitTorrent, which means that it’s raking in a neat amount of cash, right?
Well, not necessarily.
After being supported by enabling other designers to bundle their apps along with the uTorrent installer – – though setup of these apps was optional – – and earning money for it, that revenue design was discovered to be less than solid when some of the apps were flagged by anti-virus software just recently, which in turn implied that the uTorrent.exe file itself was categorized as malware as well. In the wake of that, and having its website blacklisted in part by Google as an outcome, the individuals behind the uTorrent app have begun to explore other ways of making cash, though it would appear that they aren’t yet sure exactly what that will certainly appear like.
While the business stops brief of stating that it will certainly start charging for the uTorrent app, it undoubtedly has to be one of the choices on the table.
In a current post, the uTorrent folks stated that they “desire to find a way to improve uTorrent for our consumers while economically supporting the incredible group that works every day to make uTorrent fantastic.” Quite what that will certainly look like is unclear at this time, however.
There’s one thing that we do understand, though – – the uTorrent group doesn’t want anything to be behind the scenes here, judging by the 3 objectives it detailed in the abovementioned article.
- Remain to make uTorrent the very best torrent customer available
- Supply our users with clear choices for supporting uTorrent (with alternatives for each budget plan)
- Be open and transparent throughout the entire procedure
Would you be prepared to spend for the next variation of uTorrent, or would you prefer something like a brand-new ad-driven model to keep the app afloat? Call us cynical, however we discover it difficult to believe too lots of uTorrent fans would desire to stump up an affordable quantity of cash to keep things ticking over.
We’re prepared to be shown wrong, though.
