What FrostWire is

One of the things about this Google Android app that stood out for me was the fact that it supports different types of files and links such as private torrent links, peer exchange, magnet links for BitTorrent protocols and extensions. In addition, the application also features a media player capable of playing any video or audio file. Furthermore, it features a sharing option that allows you to share videos and audio files directly from your device. With FrostWire, it is also possible to stream music for free at any time. With the IPv6 and RSS reader responsible for controlling bandwidth, you do not have to worry about bandwidth overconsumption.

You’d think that with all these features, the app would be quite challenging to use. However, this is not the case. FrostWire has a very straightforward interface. A beginner will have a very easy time understanding how to use the app, and a regular torrent software user will not have to learn anything new. The different options are conveniently accessible through the main menu, and you can easily find the file you are looking for through the search menu with just one click. Features’ score is 9 out of 10!

Unlike other applications, FrostWire does not allow any spyware, malware, adware or viruses to be loaded to your device. However, to prevent this from happening, you need to get the application from the FrostWire official website or Google Play Store. In addition to this, make sure you have an updated anti-virus application installed on your device before you upload anything. It is also important to know that FrostWire doesn’t control or host the content; it only allows you to connect to different servers so that you can access the desired content.


The transfers display is nice and sophisticated and will give you a good gauge of speed and time remaining at a simple glance. As a torrent client, it works well and you don’t have to be a real tech-savvy user to know what you’re doing. With a convenient pull out menu, you can take a look at your ongoing transfers and even browse the media on your device. FrostWire is a tasteful app, which acts much the way you would expect it to and even more. I think the interface deserves the mark 8.

Performance and Usability

If you have something to say about this app and make own review – write me.

This Google Play app for torrenting is free, and there aren’t any in-app purchases. This, in combination with the bandwidth control, means you will save a lot on the app. This is perfect considering all the features you get. I have never experienced any challenges while using this torrent client. It is fast, and it doesn’t crash or freeze when in use. The developers are always working to improve the experience by introducing updates which make the app even better.

Using the app, it is nice and easy to search for any media files, and once you have your results, you can sort them by file types, such as video, images, music, software, documents, and torrents. FrostWire is a fast app that handles searches well and doesn’t have any issues downloading multiple files. The score is 9 out of 10.

Cross-Platform Use 

The FrostWire Client is available for Android, iOS and Windows OS. My mark is 8/10.

The Verdict

I have used plenty of torrent clients, but none has worked like FrostWire. This app is easy to use, has a consistent performance and most importantly, very useful features. Whether you want to get videos or audio files, this is the best option to use. You can get the latest version of this leading app on Google Play Store or the FrostWire website.

8.0 /10


  • In-app search for torrents and other media files;
  • Easily toggled settings for connection type and seeding;
  • A good-looking design;
  • Allows multiple downloads and multiple uploads (seeding);
  • Built-in music player and media browser.


  • Since downloading is very process heavy, not the best for slow devices;
  • Relies on fast internet connection for obvious reasons, so you might have to wait a while for large files to download.
