Editors' Review

+

We review a lot of peer-to-peer file-sharing applications, and many of them are pretty similar. After all, there are only so many things a P2P program can do, and only so many ways that you can arrange those features. With CitrixWire, however, we've discovered a P2P program that is entirely identical to another, which is a first for us.

We had just finished evaluating Addax, another P2P program, when we launched CitrixWire. We were struck by a sense of deja vu. True, Addax's skin was yellow, while CitrixWire's was green, but since both programs are skinnable, we were quickly able to match up the color schemes. We ran CitrixWire and Addax side by side, and they were indistinguishable. Everything was the same, from the interfaces to the features and menus. We're not sure which of these came first, or why the copycat version was released, but we can say that both of the programs are entirely adequate, though not outstanding, P2P clients. Users are connected to the Gnutella network, which contains plenty of content, and searching for and downloading files is easy. A built-in audio player lets users listen to downloaded music files without opening a separate media player. There's no Help file, which may be a hindrance to P2P beginners, but the average file-sharer should find CitrixWire (and Addax) plenty intuitive. Overall, CitrixWire is just fine if you're looking for a basic P2P client, but we've seen other programs that offer more features.

CitrixWire is free. It installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users.

Pros

So far no Ads, it lets you decide if you want your media files transfered unlike Limewire which does it automaticly the connection is faster

Cons

Just as predicted... another copy of limewire from the name, to the look, and features. The downloads are super slow compared to others...

"My computer froze instantly"

September 02, 2007  |  By apoplectic

 |  Version: CitrixWire 3.8

Cons

I'd rather use Soulseek. I can find complete albums and I can also see the users I am getting them from... plus it's a million times faster. With this program I'm just downloading willy nilly. And that's only if I can get my computer to do anything at all. It took me 3 restarts to get it to work.

This just seems to be bad news. I uninstalled it and went back to soulseek.
