We went from jlibtorrent 1.2.3.0 onto 1.2.7.0 because we weren’t happy with how stable 1.2.4, 1.2.5 and 1.2.6 were, however the libtorrent 1.2.7 engine starts the downloads almost immediatly for decently seeded torrents and we’ve seen speeds above 7Mb/s on our testing environment.

Below the list of fixes, most coming from the libtorrent project.

NEW FrostWire for Android includes user interface upgrades towards a 2.0 release

Download FrostWire NOW!

We’re excited to announce a new release of FrostWire Plus for Android (1.9.4).

01-frostwire-1.9.4

The user interface upgrades included are part of our roadmap to FrostWire for Android 2.0.

On FrostWire 1.9.4, we added thumb grid views for browsing the pictures and videos on your device.

image-viewer

On past versions of FrostWire, images and videos were displayed in a list view, this meant a lot of scrolling just to see a few pictures or video thumbnails, with the grid views you will have a more efficient way of viewing and managing your media files.

video-viewer

A new feature to accompany the new grid media browsing is a built-in Image Viewer.

You can open an image and on the toolbar menu you will find more actions:
Open, File Information, Set as Wallpaper, Rename, and Share.

The new “File Information” window, is available for all file types.Screenshot_2017-05-20-12-51-47

 

On the next updates the Image Viewer will continue to improve by including a few more basic features like browsing through the rest your pictures using swipe gestures once you’ve opened an image.

Subtle Design Upgrades

We’ve rewritten our file type selection user interface on FrostWire 1.9.4. using the latest Android APIs available for better performance, we’ve also made subtle changes on the way they look.

New FrostWire Plus (1.6.5) for Android released

Download FrostWire Plus 1.6.5 for Android now

This release makes FrostWire for Android compatible with the new Android 6 Marshmallow release. Now when FrostWire starts up for the first time, Android 6 users will be explicitely asked to let FrostWire have disk access to media files.
This is only asked once and this annoyance is there thanks to your friends at Google.
As a result FrostWire will no longer crash on startup on Android 6 devices.

Integration with search engines such as SoundCloud, TPB, BTJunkie, Torlock and TPB has been fixed.

A very annoying usability bug on which searches would appear never end has finally been fixed, we had users waiting for searches to end for over 12 hours!!! when all they had to do was click on other search result tabs to notice that the search had ended, but this was completely our fault.

Multiple rare crash fixes on the music player will continue to make the app more stable as we continue reach new lower records on daily crash reports.

Fixes a bug where FrostWire wouldn’t know how to open finished .apk files from the “Transfers” screen.

New .APK search result icon

Apk search results icon is now an Android head, many users would think the former gear icon represented “settings”, our bad. Thanks for the feedback.

Let’s grow the community!

There’s a new “Keep In Touch” dialog after the installation wizard, we’d like to grow our community, many people think FrostWire is dead, but we never left, thanks media.

New: Copy Magnet, Copy InfoHash

We’ve added a couple of advanced torrent actions for users that may want to know the infohash of a torrent, or who may want to share the magnet link of a torrent with a friend for sharing content.

New “Help” menu entry

Updated Spanish, Polish, Croatian translations.

New FrostWire for Android now with “Play before download” (Streaming Preview – v.1.6.0)

A huge new update for Android is here.

We’ve finally done what you’ve been always asking for, “Play before download” (FrostWire Plus only) and “Play while you download” (available on basic too)

Play before download, a.k.a. “Preview”

Starting on FrostWire Plus 1.6.0 for Android (the one available only on our website, also 100% free), YouTube and SoundCloud search results can be streamed for preview, this way you can know ahead of time if this is the file you need for offline access, or if you just want to play it, you can do so.

Play while you download

But what about .torrent downloads? Given the distributed nature of the file pieces on the Bittorrent network, TODAY it’s harder to give you the same experience we can give you when streaming from a cloud source, we could do preview, but you’d be frustrated how long you’d have to wait in most cases.

Therefore, you can start any media Bittorrent download, and while you’re on the transfer screen you can wait for a Play button to appear. Once this button appears you can start playing the file before it finishes the download.

But I have FrostWire Basic only! I want previews too
Then just get FrostWire Plus on our website right now! it’s absolutely free.

Changelog:

FrostWire 1.6.0 - AUGUST/03/2015
 - Streaming Previews on search results before download. (FrostWire Plus only)
 - Play .torrent media files while downloading.
 - Upgrade bittorrent engine to jlibtorrent 1.0
 - Updated SoundCloud search & download api.
 - Improved search suggestions.
 - Improved transition between My Music and Home screens.
 - Multiple crash fixes in music player.
