The verdict:

Torrent RT Free is a great free torrent downloading app for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 which makes for a smooth app that enables you to easily download torrents on your device. The app is well designed and the only drawback of the app that I feel is that it does not support downloading in background, and needs to stay open for downloading torrents. Apart from that, it is truly great and is worthy of a well deserved 4 out of 5 rating!
