Editors' Review

+

MP3 Rocket is another LimeWire source code fork, like FrostWire, and as such it functions exactly the same. When you search for a file using MP3 Rocket, you get results from LimeWire, and vice versa.

However, the user experience differs in a few ways. Although the name suggests the program only searches for MP3s, that's not the case. This has all the capabilities of the parent program and is capable of searching for and downloading all file formats. This includes the recent addition of torrent support to the main LimeWire code. The most MP3-centric feature here lets users share their iTunes music folder directly, as if they were on a shared network.

What makes MP3 Rocket stand out are the TV, Radio, and Games channels. There are more than 200 live broadcast radio signals coming in, as well as similar numbers for TV stations and Flash-based games, mostly arcade classics such as Pac-Man and Street Fighter. Radio stations are streamed live from FM signals around the country, and TV channels include the Sci-Fi Channel, Cartoon Network, videos from MTV and more. Who knew that MTV still carried videos?

Beware of the toolbar you must opt out of when installing the application, and MP3 Rocket struggles with the same performance flaws that plague other LimeWire-based clients. However, it offers reasonable performance and provides some extras along the way--not quite a rocket, but it definitely doesn't fizzle.

"Very simple to use and very versatile"

November 15, 2010  |  By pelicancraig

 |  Version: MP3 Rocket 5.4.7 5.4.6

Pros

You have several search options and do multiple searches at the same time.

Cons

Can't preview song to see what version it is. Easy to delete a search tab when you only wanted to open it.

Summary

If you liked Limewire, then you will find this is basically the same.

"DON'T DOWNLOAD THIS, PERIOD!!"

November 05, 2010  |  By onebetter

 |  Version: MP3 Rocket 5.4.7 5.4.6

Pros

NONE AT ALL!

Cons

IT PUTS MAJOR VIRUSES ON YOUR HARD DRIVE!!

Summary

My AVAST detected such a major virus, that it wouldn't need finish downloading it and that was only after I delected the program and tried to re-install it! Also, when you try to uninstall it, it leaves behind so much spyware that it is crazy! I agree with some of the reviewer on here about CNET and their credibility. Some of the products on here needs to be taken off the site or they are going to lose a lot of viewer themselves!
