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.

"WARNING....SOME DOWNLOADS ARE TROJANS"

February 18, 2009  |  By hpgobblet

 |  Version: MP3 Rocket 5.1.4

Pros

downloaded well and was fast

Cons

TOO MANY DOWNLOADS THAT CONTAINED TROJANS. Thank goodness I have Windows one care, otherwise I'd hate to think what my computer would be doing now.

Summary

This is a good program, but the virus problems are a critical problem. I downloaded four items of music and each one was identified as a trojan. get this problem straightened out, as well as the launcher and this will be a great program. Untill then however, I'm afraid I cannot risk it.

"cpu started to act funny"

February 16, 2009  |  By master_mind413

 |  Version: MP3 Rocket 5.1.4

Pros

software had potential to be some thing great, music videos,tv and music all in one on one software with no tv tuner required sound to good to be true > that's cause it is

Cons

11 Trojans later and several random spyware and malware viruses caused the computer to believe that the firewall was shut down by itself when it wasn't, just false complaints by random Trojans on the computer

Summary

I cant recommend this to any one and how this software got such a high rating is beyond me it will slowly load your computer down with malware and unless you know what you are doing you willl never get it all out

"Not too bad, a lot of feature which make it unique!"

February 13, 2009  |  By Laura11975

 |  Version: MP3 Rocket 5.1.4

Pros

Not only can you search for your favorites, there are other popular downloads that are easily available. I also liked that you can watch TV programs as well.

Cons

I don't think the connection speed is as quick as LimeWire or Frostwire. I also prefer not to share what I download and even though it gives you the option to stop sharing a folder, anything you download with this application is shared.

Summary

Like I mentioned above, I don't think it is as fast as a couple other products and I felt that I if I 'Unshare' an entire folder that should mean all of its contents as well. Other than that, great for finding new stuff you wouldn't normally listen to.

"Shocking, astonishing, all in all, sweet as chocolate"

January 29, 2009  |  By MetroLinerXLZ

 |  Version: MP3 Rocket 5.1.4

Pros

Several varieties of searches, easy to use. So freakin' quick, it's a nightmare...and this is the free version. Don't have to type in names of certain songs; they show right in the music section. Definately like watching TV on it.

Cons

Why would you TRY to look for cons? You'll be too busy enjoying this software to find any!!

Summary

Limewire, Frostwire, Kazaa, etc...they are no longer worth looking at. This however is my opinion.

"programme won't install"

January 19, 2009  |  By thewombleis

 |  Version: MP3 Rocket 5.1.4

Pros

there is nothing I like because I have tried at least 12 times to install but can only install 12% of the programme before freezing

Cons

I have tried at least 12 times to dinstallthis programme but can only install 12% of the programme before freezing. One time Limewire was downloaded. Don't like the way it takes over and installs ASK.COM. tool bar

Summary

Can not install so very hard to comment on any of the features. Several of my friends recommended it over Limewire. All I can say Limewire installs and works good for me.
