New icon for App search results on FrostWire for Android

New FrostWire 1.5.2 for Android with improved Search experience.

Download FrostWire Plus 1.5.2 (absolutely Free!)

After we had to remove YouTube search from the FrostWire version distributed on Google Play, aka “FrostWire Basic”, we heard your complains loud and clear.

As a first solution, we created a “FrostWire Plus” distribution that has all the features you were used to and we made it available on our website.

For those users that simply won’t bother to get out of Google Play to get an app we had to make things better with respect to torrent search, FrostWire 1.5.2 is a first step on that direction.

FrostWire Basic users should feel a big difference when searching once they upgrade to 1.5.2.

An Improved Search Experience

In the past, as you searched, FrostWire would make very intensive use of your network resources, it’d try to query the DHT for every candidate torrent, download the torrent, parse the torrent and apply matching heuristics to show you relevant search results.

As of 1.5.2 we’ve started searching for more information about the torrents contents right from the search sources search results, this means, in some instances almost immediate individual files appearing on search results and much needed freeing the DHT network of millions of searches a day.

As a result to your experience, not only you get faster search results, but when you start a download it will take less to get started as FrostWire is not busy talking to hundreds of peers on the network.

Also we’ve included some user interface upgrades that can help make your search more streamlined in case you’re not finding what you’re looking for. FrostWire will now show you search suggestions based on what you’ve entered, basically showing you reduced versions of your previous search, so you don’t have to manually delete words, now you can just push a button to try an alternate more general search which will increase your chances of finding relevant content.

Changelog

FrostWire 1.5.2 – APRIL/17/2015
– Significant improvements in search results for individual files.
– Significant reduction of DHT queries, freeing up networking resources.
– Faster torrent download start.
– Fixes download error on some Archive.org search results.
– When no search results are found, search suggestions are calculated from search keywords.
– Fixes Yify search.
– Icon/buttons refresh on transfer screen.
– Fixes issues with SD Card storage on Android 5.0 (Lollipop)
– FrostWire notification icon now Lollipop compatible.

Riyadh-Tower-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 BitTorrent support. In version 5, Gnutella support was dropped entirely, and FrostWire is only a BitTorrent client. Development of the program has been active since the program was first released in September 2004.
