[Price: Free / $ 3.99]
µTorrent has had a positive reputation with torrent users for ages.

There is a simple interface that allows you to quickly view and manage your various torrent downloads. It also includes the ability to choose your storage location, remove torrents with and without deleting the data, and a WiFi only mode that will only start torrents while you’re connected to WiFi. There is a free version you can try out before grabbing the paid version if you want to try it out first.
