PROS:

This download is freeware, all features of this program are available for all to use freely. Very light on resources.  Good & bad torrents easily distinguishable.  Automatically move downloaded torrents to a specified output directory (good for bittorrent clients that monitor a specific folder, like uTorrent).

CONS:

No customisable options.  No help documentation. Dull GUI.  No system tray context menu.

VERDICT:

An excellent tool to save you trawling through different torrent websites to find the right torrent, this application uses btjunkie.org as its search engine and indexer.  Torrents are easily distinguishable by green/red coloured search results based on positive/negative votes and available seeders.  TorrentFetcher is no burden on the system, 5MB RAM and minimal CPU usage is all that is needed.   The ability to save torrents to a specified output directory or automatically open with your bittorrent client makes this a very tidy application.  Highly recommended and extremely easy to use.

PRICE:

Free.
