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.

New: Try Experimental Features starting on 6.4.6 for Desktop

Good morning! We’re so happy to announce that soon we’re going to release FrostWire 6.4.6. for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

FrostWire 6.4.6. for desktop has a new advanced settings section to let you try features at your own risk.

There’s 2 kinds of features: `ALPHA` and `BETA`.

  • ALPHA features come turned off when you first install FrostWire.
  • BETA features com turned on when you first install FrostWire.

For example, the current `VPN Drop Protection` feature is still deemed alpha, we still have some important work to do, and we don’t know if it’s unstable yet to be tested by everyone out there. The feature would therefore be an opt-in feature for those who want to try ALPHA features.

Once the feature is ready for a first try with lots of users, we can promote it to `BETA` and it will be on by default on most FrostWire’s out there, except on those users curious and risk-averse enough to disable `BETA`features.

Also, if you run FrostWire from source code, ALL features are enabled by default.

Want to try it? Download FrostWire 6.4.6. pre-release today!

FrostWire for Android reaches Top 30th Best Free App on Google Play, 1st Free App in Media & Video

We are very excited to share that FrostWire for Android has just reached the Top 30th Best Free Apps on Google Play!

It has proudly outranked apps like Twitter, Hulu, Vine or Angry Birds and it might be still climbing the charts. We wanted to thank all the users who supported us throughout the years, submitted bug reports or donated to the project, we couldn’t have done it without you.

FrostWire Top 30 Free App on Google Play

FrostWire was the first peer-2-peer file sharing application on the Android Market. We published our first, very basic version in December of 2010. Back then our smart phones were not so smart, and definitely not as fast as they are now, but we did it and it worked!

“The app we dreamed about back in 2010 is finally here”

Even though very ugly, the alpha and beta versions could search & download and even browse local files to then share with other FrostWire users. The early adopters quickly discovered the app and our user base kept steadily climbing over the years while we kept improving.

Today FrostWire for Android is a native BitTorrent client and cloud downloader with built-in search and multiple downloading options. It not only has a built-in media browser & music player, but also features newly integrated fully featured music library for easier file consumption.  With in-app Wi-Fi sharing, it also allows users to wirelessly transfer files between FrostWire enabled devices on the same local network.

The app we dreamed about back in 2010 is finally here, the app that let’s you Search, Download, Play and Share files easily, from one place has become a reality.
