FrostWire, Alternative to BitTorrent

As you probably know, According to TrustedReviews and many other news sources BitTorrent has been sold to Justin Sun and his blockchain startup Tron.

“BitTorrent has been sold to the founder of cryptocurrency TRON, who reportedly wants to use the acquisition to “legitimise” the blockchain startup’s reputation.” -TrustedReviews

 

Due to this, and because no one knows with certainty what will happen with BitTorrent, you will be wondering what is the best alternative. You came to the right place. FrostWire is one of the few fully independent, fully featured open source alternatives. FrostWire is a free, fully featured BitTorrent Client and Cloud downloader with a built-in Music Library designed for Android, Windows, Mac, and Linux.

FrostWire allows you to find & download any file from the distributed peer-to-peer BitTorrent Network – music, movies, apps, ebooks, images. Any file – no matter how big or small!
In addition, FrostWire is also a cloud downloader – fetching results and able to download files from cloud based sources such as Archive.org, SoundCloud.com and YouTube.

You just enter a keyword and search, then pick a file from search results and download the file with one tap. Yes. It is that easy!

So, what are you waiting for? Download FrostWire for free today!

Get FrostWire Plus 1.9.8 for Android! New Feature: Search Filtering Tools!

DOWNLOAD NOW!

Happy Thursday! Today we’re glad to announce FrostWire 1.9.8. for Android. This is one of our major releases of this year being that includes new features that will make your experience a lot better. If you want to download torrents or files in a more precise way you need to download this release!

First of all, FrostWire for Android now have search filtering tools. What is that? Search Filtering Tools allows you to get better search results. After you do a search you can filter it (by keyword, source, file extension,etc) in order to get more accurate results.

How to use Search Filtering Tools?

It’s easy!

  • Open FrostWire 1.9.8+ and do a search.

  • Then, click on the menu bottom on the right. You will see different options for filter results. For example, you can filter by a manually entered keyword, or an automatically detected prominent search source.

  • You can also filter by sources / channels, file extensions, or/and file names.

As you apply filters, the results in the background will be reduce to match all of the filters you’ve specified and less suggestions are automatically calculated.

By default the filters you apply are inclusive (+), if you touch an applied filter it will switch from inclusive (-), to exclusive (-), meaning it will check for results that do not have such keyword in its metadata.

More updates

On the other hand, we improved VPN detection and services. FrostWire will block bittorrent connection if you have a VPN and you are not using it. In this manner, your privacy will be protected! If you don’t have a VPN, we strongly recoomend you to install it!

If you love to have an app with a fresh and cool design you will be happy to see that we updated the user interface.

Finally, now you will have the option to see “Last Added” for each song on the music player.

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.

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

Open, File Information, Set as Wallpaper, Rename, and Share.

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.
