"A very nice P2P application!"

August 28, 2007  |  By Chainmail2006

 |  Version: FrostWire 4.13.2

Pros

Although this is a nice, "Limewiwe" cloned P2P application it has one flaw. It does however, has several pros to. This has the nicest (colors) GUI of all the "Limewire" engined programs. Many sources, fast downloads and runs great on a "Vista" system. It is spyware free. Unfortunately it supports one misleading add and the hype is not fully true. MP3 Torpedo has the same engine, same sources and no add. Thats one of the two P2P applications I can recommend for "Vista" users.

Cons

They claim it's the same, in speed and sources as the old "Limewire Pro" but it is just an off line installer for "Vista" version of "Limewire Basic". And when it opens, at the bottom of the interface, there is an add claiming a "newer version is available". If you click on it, you are redirected to "Limewire's" home page where they are trying to sell it's pro version.

"Best P2P program out there, including limewire PRO"

August 10, 2007  |  By aerosx

 |  Version: FrostWire 4.13.2

Pros

Much better than Limewire, Ares, Emule etc.

It has great download speeds ( better than limewire as it lets you download from 10 hosts instead or limewires 8 on the free version ).

It has an intergrated chat, great interface, hasn't slowed down my computer, the same stuff as limewire pro but for free!

Cons

None, although theres an ad asking for you to donate when in the chat tab, however thats definatley not something for it loose a star.
