The nice thing about Patchy is that you can use it to create torrents and to download .torrent files or magnet links. The great thing about Patchy is that it is free software that doesn’t annoy you with ads. So to sum it, Patchy is a free torrent client that allows you to download torrent files but doesn’t bother you with ads.

Patchy is available as an installer and as a portable version. No matter which version you get, you will quickly get Patchy up and running on your Windows PC.
Please note that Patchy needs Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 or newer to run.
Please note that the portable version of Patchy does not need admin rights to run.

If you’ve used BitTorrent, uTorrent, or another torrent client in the past, you will find Patchy’s interface very familiar and you will immediately figure things out. If you’ve never used torrent clients before, you will quickly get accustomed to Patchy’s interface. After all, it has a very simple layout: a traditional File Menu at the top; a panel that lists all torrent downloads in the middle; a section that presents additional information about torrent downloads at the bottom.

From a functionality point of view, you can expect to get the following from Patchy: by default, it automatically launches at startup; by default, it associates with .torrent files and magnet links; it can import torrents from uTorrent and Transmission; use it to create torrents; use it to download torrents; stop, pause torrent downloads; remove torrent, remove torrent and downloaded data; RSS feeds are supported; and more.

Since Patchy is free software, you have all the time in the world to uncover all the functionality this torrent client has to offer.

Patchy is a very useful torrent client that is offered for the great price of free and doesn’t display any annoying ads.


Patchy is available as an installer and as a portable version. Patchy can associate itself with .torrent files and magnet links; Patchy can automatically import torrents from uTorrent and Transmission. Patchy has a user friendly interface. Patchy is free software that does not display ads. Patchy is open-source.


None that I could think of.
