"Better User Interface than LimeWire For Mac"

May 06, 2009  |  By Junemas

 |  Version: FrostWire 4.17.2

Pros

Able to have More Specific Searches Such as Artist, Album, and Song.
Supposedly written off Limewire Pro code.
When searching I get much more results in frostwire than in limewire.
Easy to locate incomplete files and delete them freeing disk space.

Cons

Risk of Viruses if user doesn't know what they are doing or what to download, though Mac has thousands less viruses than Microsoft OS.

Summary

Again I tried Limewire for the Mac first and my experience wasn't a pleasant one, while searching for an artist I'd notice I could only get about 40-60 results max most of which were the same file over and over again, then I could only download 10 items at a time even though I changed the settings to allow for more simultaneous downloads and searches.

In FrostWire with a simply change of a few settings, I was able to get more results, more downloads, and have much more specific searching results. The user interface is better, locating incomplete files and saved files are easier, locating videos is easier, over all I couldn't be more satisfied.

(Again Yes I Changed All the settings in both applications to allow for more downloads and searches)

"Gets the job done w/o fuss"

April 18, 2009  |  By garyusww

 |  Version: FrostWire 4.17.2

Pros

Gives you access to tons o' music

Cons

Tends to pull up a lot of porn spam, and you need to be careful about what you download.

Summary

A good solid product w/no serious flaws. The latest version of Limewire is written specifically for Intel macs, but Frostwire works fine on my G4.
