FrostWire is the simplest yet most powerful p2p BitTorrent file sharing application & cloud file downloader in one.

More author programs

With built in file search, you don't have to use your web browser to look for content. FrostWire scans the most popular BitTorrent search engines & cloud sources to produce the most relevant search results, organized by projected download speed. You can filter your results by file type, search engine, file size and more. Download files with one click or pick and choose which files from a torrent package you would like to download.

In addition, FrostWire functions the same way other BitTorrent clients do, where you download a .torrent file from the internet and then open the application to download it's content. You can even copy & past the .torrent or Magnet link into FrostWire's search bar and it will download the content for you.

For a bit of history, FrostWire, was formerly a Gnutella client. It started in late 2005 when concerned developers of LimeWire's open source community announced the start of a new project fork that would protect the developmental source code of the LimeWire client. It is still a collaborative effort from hundreds of Open Source and freelance developers from around the world and supported by an active user's community.

After downloading, you can organize your media files, listen to your music or watch your movies in the FrostWire Library. With build in playlist support & internet radio, you won't need another software to enjoy your downloads!

With FrostWire, you can also share files over your local Wi-Fi with other devices - on Windows, Mac, Linux or Android - running FrostWire on the same network. Transfer your downloads to a phone or tablet without cables or share photos you just took with friends nearby.

There is no technical knowledge necessary to use FrostWire - just Search, Download, Play and Share. The software is ideal for both an occasional and heavy media consumer, offering a simple interface, yet powerful set of customization options.

"Only 4.21.1 Works. Mostly Spam."


Most of the not-so-known songs are only spam.

Some of the known songs (ex. Love is Gone) are also spam disguised as the song.

Just Hideous.

But the only LimeWire replacement.

Or at least, just what I know.

  • LimeWire Replacement.
  • 85% of the songs you download are not even songs, they're just spam.
