Ares Galaxy has been one of the top file sharing programs for almost a decade. But, considering the rise of BitTorrent, is it still worth it to use Ares for file sharing or is it simply a relic of the past?
We are convinced that Ares Galaxy still has a bright future ahead of it, and we can think of several underlying reasons for this prediction of ours. Read on and discover why you too should use Ares (in case you’re not using it already).
#1 Ares Combines BitTorrent With Its Own Network
You don’t actually have to choose between BitTorrent and Ares. You can have both!
Ares Galaxy is a great torrent client that is up there with the most known names in the industry, like uTorrent and Deluge. Ares can be used for downloading and uploading torrents, both via magnet or hash links and regular torrent files. So if you want to give Ares a try but you hesitate to give up torrenting, know that you can easily download files from the Ares Galaxy network, as well as from the various BitTorrent ones.
#2 Integrated Search Function And Media Library
With Ares Galaxy, you don’t always have to go online to look for files. You can just fire up Ares and do a search right in the program itself. You can search for specific formats and sort them based on the amount of ‘seeders’, which will guarantee you the fastest possible download speeds.
When you finish downloading a file, it will automatically be added to your media library, which is also within easy reach inside the Ares program. The library offers you control over your files and allows you to delete, put sharing restrictions, rename, reorganize and even play them.
#3 Play Media Files Directly In Ares Galaxy
The vertical integration capabilities of Ares Galaxy don’t stop there. After you’ve searched for, downloaded and organized your files, you can also play them with Ares! Ares offers high quality video playing, a great music player which includes a playlist and even internet radio support.
You can browse for and download new files while watching or listening to your old ones. You can chat with people all over the world while listening to your favorite internet radio station. All this without having to open a single program other than Ares Galaxy.
#4 Integrated Chat Client
Ares also offers its users the possibility to start and join chatrooms where you can interact with people from around the globe. And if that isn’t enough, you can trade files with people in any chatroom directly, giving yet another dimension to file sharing.
#5 Full Customizability
The final advantage of Ares Galaxy is its customizability. There is hardly anything in this software package that is not subject to a large number of customizable tweaks. The control panel gives you complete control over what you want Ares to do and what not, making the whole file sharing experience a breeze, whether you are very good with computers or not.
