"Most innovative release yet!"

April 03, 2014  |  By Malina_NY

 |  Version: FrostWire 5.7.1

Pros

Now I can add Creative Commons License info into the torrent itself and put Bitcoin address to accept donations!
Also seems to boot faster, but it could be just me.

Cons

None for this release :P

"Fast, reliable, and an asset to find good, rare stuff."

August 26, 2011  |  By Gwen_Dibley

 |  Version: FrostWire 5.0.8

Pros

Unlike other software of this ilk, I get many results fast and they are usually 90% relevant to what I was looking for. Uploads are really fast.

Cons

Well, none really. I am knocking off a star for the simple fact that 10% of my search results are crud/spam. Not sure this can ever be solved by anyone, but it does force me to double check what I'm uploading before doing so.

Summary

The bottom line is that my taste in music is erratic and sometimes I simply have to hear a song or album or I won't be able to sleep. I know downloading music is sketchy, but Frostwire is a really great resource to scratch an itch that is hard to reach. I don't use it often, but when I do there is no BS. And let's face it, some movies simply won't be shown in the US (ie A Serbian Film) and Frostwire is a great resource for this.

"No where near what CNET's review says anymore..."

August 23, 2011  |  By Aleonardis1

 |  Version: FrostWire 5.0.8

Pros

Nothing at all. (Honestly.)

Cons

EVERYTHING! LITERALLY EVERYTHING!

Summary

I might be over exaggerating, but, this is seriously the worst update for any software I've ever had in my computing life. Frostwire should rename the software to bittorent because thats all this is. The review on your site now says the word gnutella in it. Well it's nowhere to be seen in this new software. Fix your review.
