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

    August 26, 2011  |   By Gwen_Dibley

    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.
