What is FrostWire?
FrostWire is a free, open source P2P BitTorrent file sharing application & cloud file downloader in one. It's a fork of LimeWire .
Unlike other BitTorrent clients, FrostWire allows users to query both BitTorrent Search engines & Cloud sources from within the application (YouTube, SoundCloud and Archive.org), making it's user interface significantly easier to use, yet still offering a full set of downloading options for mid to advanced users. Every copy of FrostWire is a self-contained smart search engine that crawls the BitTorrent network, able to find the rarest of files indexed by .torrent files available on the internet.
With built in file search, you don't have to use your web browser to look for content. FrostWire scans the most popular BitTorrent search engines & cloud sources to produce the most relevant search results. You can filter your results by file type, search engine, file size and more. Download files with one click or pick and choose which files from a torrent package you would like to download.
In addition, FrostWire functions the same way other BitTorrent clients do, where you download a .torrent file from the internet and then open the application to download it's content. You can even copy & past the .torrent or Magnet link into FrostWire's search bar and it will download the content for you.
After downloading, you can organize your media files, listen to your music or watch your movies in the FrostWire Library. With build in playlist support & internet radio, you won't need another software to enjoy your downloads!
There is no technical knowledge necessary to use FrostWire - just Search, Download, Play and Share. The software is ideal for both an occasional and heavy media consumer, offering a simple interface, yet powerful set of customization options.
