Ares is designed for easy P2P file sharing. Users can download Ares to help with downloading torrent files. In addition, this free program includes a multimedia player. This program lets you view files before they are downloaded, and downloaded audio or video files can be instantly played from the shared program.

Features and Functions

Like uTorrent and eMule, Ares is made for downloading programs, files, images, games, music and movies that are not covered by a copyright. It supports the download of Torrent files and allows users to surf the web from the client. Using Ares, you can boost your download speed by downloading from multiple sources. In theory, additional programs like Turbo Booster or Galaxy SpeedUp can speed up the download speed as well.

This program works to help large groups of people distribute files. For example, you would use the torrent program to make a torrent file. This new file would be a seed that can be downloaded by any other P2P software user. All of the peers who use the file system can distribute and download files with other users. On Ares, the options screen is under a tab and can be easily accessed. Meanwhile, the media player controls are located at the bottom of the interface.

Ares is ideal for anyone who wants an intuitive, simple file sharing program. It takes a minimal amount of time to start, and the speed is extremely fast. While it does not have all of the advanced options of programs like uTorrent, Ares is better for beginners and anyone who wants a simplified program. Every once in a while, there may be a problem connecting. When this happens, the Ares Fix tool can be used to quickly fix the issue.

Through the search engine, Ares lets you filter content by different types. In a single click, you can use the main features like Internet browsing, download options, chat and search. You can also view the library and settings with a single click of the mouse.
