FrostWire is now on mobile and comes with some nice additional features, such as a music player.
What is FrostWire? FrostWire is a torrent client designed for Android devices. It offers users different features such as a built-in torrent search and an advanced download manager. In this article, we discuss some of the app’s key features, as well as some additional information.
Here are some of the main features of the FrostWire app:
In-App Search: This feature allows users to connect to different torrent search engines and Cloud sources in order to optimize a search. Also, results display directly in the app.
Preview: With FrostWire, you don’t need to complete a download in order to play it - you can stream files from the cloud beforehand or while downloading.
Save Data: Another great thing about FrostWire is the possibility to set it in a way that downloading is possible only when you are connected to WiFi, thus saving you some mobile data.
Music Player and Media Browser: If file-sharing is not enough for you, you will be happy to learn that the Android app comes with a built-in music player, as well as a media browser. Users can also create playlists.
FrostWire uses a distributed peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing torrent network. The app splits the file into multiple chunks while downloading from different sources.
Some users have reported getting their PCs infected with a Chromium Browser Virus when installing the app.
Also, you should keep in mind that for every torrent software, there is a risk of downloading an infected torrent file, if you don’t pay attention to the sources you’re are using.
You can download and use FrostWire for Android for free. However, it contains some optional in-app purchases.
To run the linked FrostWire download on your device, you need Android 5.5 and up. The app is also available for Windows.
