"Worst than the Worst"

August 22, 2011  |  By emsmithwick

 |  Version: FrostWire 5.0.8

Pros

I found zero benefits using 5.0.8.

Cons

This is the worst software that I have every tried to use. It's difficult to navigate: Hard to download songs! Don't waste your time with this piece of grap! I echo all the other negative comments about this version of Frostwire 5.0.8

Summary

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!

"There are better torrent clients out there"

August 18, 2011  |  By ThatFuzzyGuy

 |  Version: FrostWire 5.0.8

Pros

It does handle torrents as advertised.

Cons

The search engine needs work. The torrent sites it searches is fixed and can't be changed. The built in chat client doesn't function properly. It hangs on start so make sure you're using the latest version of java.

Summary

When FrostWire deviated from the gnutella network because it couldn't filter the spam as well as other p2p clients it lost favor with users who had never used a torrent before. They became a second rate torrent client with alot of bugs. Utorrent and BitTottent are still better alternatives far richer in features. I'd wait for the bugs to be worked out before wasting my time.

"Piece of GARBAGE"

August 12, 2011  |  By jmac0414

 |  Version: FrostWire 5.0.8

Pros

Pros? you have GOT to be kidding!

Cons

Frostwire 5 changes your homepage to Ask.com, as well as your search engine to Ask without asking. Also, my anti-virus went nuts with "Trojan" warnings.

Summary

When you finally get this piece-o-crap program running, you have to download another peer to peer network to get it to work. Take my advice, and don't even bother with this "program".
