How does the web app look and feel to use?

The BitLet website is easy to use and includes almost no clutter. This is definitely a plus because users can get on, download torrents and immediately access their files without spending a great deal of time learning the site. There are a few banner advertisements found on BitLet. These are generally not intrusive and positioned out of the way.

Either way, the site is easy to navigate and the user can always ignore the advertisements.
