The µTorrent team has added an idea bank to their website where users can vote for and suggest features that should be implemented in the next version client. ——————————————————————————————————
µTorrent is one of the most widely used BitTorrent applications. It is the client of choice for more than 50 million users worldwide and this number continues to rise alongside BitTorrent’s increasing popularity. ?
The Idea Bank is prominently featured on µTorrent’s website and allows users to submit and vote for ideas they want to see in µTorrent. Users can vote for a maximum of 10 ideas, but are free to change their vote if a better suggestion comes along. Once an idea is completed, users will regain the vote they allocated to that suggestion.
uTorrent has always had a forum section with feature requests, but that was less visible for the average user. With the new Idea Bank users can see at a glance what features are being worked on and what has already been implemented.
“Although the Forums are popular, they tend to select a much more advanced community of enthusiasts. Those who have a feature suggestion or want to vote on one can go to the Idea Bank and participate. At the time of writing the bank holds 55 ideas, one of these is being worked on and three ideas have been implemented already. A Linux version of uTorrent is the top idea at the moment, followed by an email notification for completed downloads.
