Earlier this month, KickAssTorrents (KAT) website went down and now Torrentz.eu shut down aswell. If you used those sites to search torrents, you may be wondering what alternative site or software you can use. The answer is simple: Get FrostWire!
FrostWire allows you to find, download and share files from the distributed peer-to-peer BitTorrent Network – music, movies, apps, ebooks, images. Any file type – no matter how big or small! In addition, FrostWire is also a cloud downloader – fetching results and downloading files from cloud based sources such as YouTube, SoundCloud and Archive.org.
You just enter a keyword and search, then pick a file from search results and download the file with one tap. It’s so simple. In only one place you can search and download. Other apps don’t have this amazing feature.
FrostWire is available for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android.
Privacy is a Human Right and you must protect it. When you connect to the Internet, corporations and even your internet service provider can spy you. If you want to protect yourself and not let any stranger see your personal information, you need a VPN.
A VPN will secure your connection, no matter where you are. With a VPN whatever you do online is going to be transferred encrypted. That includes your internet searches, your personal & identifiable information you type into websites, your emails and private messages and the files you download or share. Yes, you also can use a VPN for FrostWire.
How does it work?
You have to sign up for a VPN service and obtain a username and password for authentication. You then download and install a very tiny piece of software or an app that, upon a sign in, lets you choose a location of where you want to connect to. Your device then connects to servers in that location and those servers then pass on the connection to wherever you wanted to go. Your destination website will see your connection as coming from the VPN servers and your identity will not be revealed. More here.
Does FrostWire work with VPN services?
FrostWire, both for Android and for Desktop, works seamlessly with most VPN services. This means that however you connect to the internet – with or without the VPN – FrostWire will still search and download without any adjustment in settings on your part.

We’ve made this video to show you how to fix the ‘Can’t Open File’ error on Google Chrome when downloading .apk files on Android.
This tutorial works not just for the FrostWire installer but for any app installer (.apk file) you may have had to download from a website, and it works for every Android phone or tablet.
There’s no reason why Google Chrome should be blocking the installation of .apk’s with their browser which happens to be the default of most phones out there, any app can handle opening .apk files, Google has simply decided to have more control of the android ecosystem and is trying to force everyone to use their Google Play market.
If things keep going this way, Google will be able to censor app developers completely if apps don’t follow their whimsical market rules, eventually they’ll turn Android into an iOS like environment where you can’t simply install apps without using the official store, the biggest bait and switch in the history of personal computing. Google, don’t be evil.
