What is FrostWire?

FrostWire is a free, open source BitTorrent client first released in September 2004, as a fork of LimeWire. It was initially very similar to LimeWire in appearance and functionality, but over time developers added more features, including support for the BitTorrent protocol and a full blown media player.

MAJOR RELEASE: FrostWire Plus 2.0. for Android

DOWNLOAD NOW!

The year is almost over but we are still working! To end 2017 we have decided to release FrostWire 2.0. FrostWire 2.0. for Android is a major release of our app. We created a new details screens for BitTorrent transfers. You will love it! You will notice that it’s so relaxing to see how a Bittorrent swarm downloads the file pieces into our new Piece Hive view.

The new transfer detail screen for BitTorrent transfers has several tabs! The first tab is Files. On Files, you can see what files are included in the torrent.

You can play each file.

On the tab Pieces you can see how each piece of the torrent is downloaded. Also you can see the download and upload speed of the file, the number of pieces, and the piece size. You will be fascinated to see the download process of each torrent! No other app does this!

On the tab Status you can see what is the condition of the torrent at that moment. You can see the download percentage, the time it takes for it to download, how much has been downloaded and how much has been uploaded, what is the number of peers and seeds, the time of activity. It is a very detailed and complete information like no other torrent client!

On the Details tab you can see where the torrent is being downloaded, the total size, the number of  files, you can see the speed limit the hash number (unique for each torrent! greater security), the magnet link, and when the torrent was created.

On the Trackers tab you can see the list of trackers of the torrent file, and you can also add other trackers. Very simple, very useful, very powerful!

Finally, on the Peers tab you can see the number of peers of the torrent and details about from each of them.

On the other hand, now when you share a track that you are enjoying on social media, Frostwire will automatically attach a screenshot of thw music player. You can always delete the attachment from your social media post if you don’t want to include it. This is very useful if you want people to know what you are listening. For example, you can share it on Instagram, Facebook, etc!

Even more, FrostWire 2.0. is faster than the previous version of the app.
