FrostWire is such a great BitTorrent Client and Music/Video Downloader! I use it on Android and Mac and it works perfectly. I like that they update very often so all search engines are always working and I can download everything. It also includes a media player, but if you prefer you can download and play the files in your default media player.

Love the build in search which makes downloading torrents that much quicker. The desktop version is super easy to use and has a very handy file manager built in. Android though, proved to be really useful. Downloading content is a breeze, lots of updates so the app always runs great, and a really cool file manager and player. Good job.

I've been using FrostWire off and on over the years, and recently I needed to use it to find an episode of "Talking Dead." I got a message in the program notifying me of a new version, so I dutifully downloaded it ... and somewhere during the installation process, I saw a message about MacKeeper -- which, despite those positive reviews you'll probably find online, is considered by many to be crapware.

Normally on a Mac, you have to provide your system password to install a program -- which is how I found out that the FostWire installer brought something else with it.

Needless to say, both MacKeeper and FostWire have been removed. I have an older version on another Mac which seems to be working just fine -- though it also offers to download an update. I just click "No, Thank you" and continue what I was doing.

Program comes with bundleware that is very easy to install if you are not paying attention, also tries to change your internet startpage to something else, and loads Internet Explorer each time it loads.
