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!

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.

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.
