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


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 Plus (1.6.5) for Android released

Download FrostWire Plus 1.6.5 for Android now

This release makes FrostWire for Android compatible with the new Android 6 Marshmallow release. Now when FrostWire starts up for the first time, Android 6 users will be explicitely asked to let FrostWire have disk access to media files.
This is only asked once and this annoyance is there thanks to your friends at Google.
As a result FrostWire will no longer crash on startup on Android 6 devices.

Integration with search engines such as SoundCloud, TPB, BTJunkie, Torlock and TPB has been fixed.

A very annoying usability bug on which searches would appear never end has finally been fixed, we had users waiting for searches to end for over 12 hours!!! when all they had to do was click on other search result tabs to notice that the search had ended, but this was completely our fault.

Multiple rare crash fixes on the music player will continue to make the app more stable as we continue reach new lower records on daily crash reports.

Fixes a bug where FrostWire wouldn’t know how to open finished .apk files from the “Transfers” screen.

New .APK search result icon

Apk search results icon is now an Android head, many users would think the former gear icon represented “settings”, our bad. Thanks for the feedback.

Let’s grow the community!

There’s a new “Keep In Touch” dialog after the installation wizard, we’d like to grow our community, many people think FrostWire is dead, but we never left, thanks media.

New: Copy Magnet, Copy InfoHash

We’ve added a couple of advanced torrent actions for users that may want to know the infohash of a torrent, or who may want to share the magnet link of a torrent with a friend for sharing content.

New “Help” menu entry

Updated Spanish, Polish, Croatian translations.

New FrostWire 1.6.4 for Android is here.

Download FrostWire Plus, free, now.

(If you are on Android right now, don’t download it with Chrome, as Google now wants to censor out apps outside of Google Play and it will not open the installer after you download it, use Firefox instead, or a use File Explorer to open the .apk installer after you have downloaded it)
