About this app

FrostWire is an easy to use yet feature packed torrent client for Android. Unlike other torrent downloaders, it has a true built-in torrent search, an advanced download manager, music player and a media library.

All these features are wrapped into one free app, so you can find what you love easily, download music, movies and video directly to your phone or tablet - fast & with no download size or speed limits, and then create playlists to play your music offline without wi-fi or mobile data.

FrostWire downloads super fast using a distributed peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing torrent network. By splitting the file into multiple chunks and downloading from many sources at the same time, it allows you to download media files as large as high-quality (Flac or wav) full songs or entire music albums, HD movies and 4K video many times faster than conventional methods. As a true free file downloader, FrostWire downloads all file types, so even though it is designed with primarily audio and video in mind, it can also download books, pdf documents, games, software, images and more!

✔ True built-in torrent search
✔ Easy one-tap download & seed (share)
✔ Play while you download (sequential downloading)
✔ Open any .torrent file or paste magnet link in Transfers to download any file you want
✔ Select File Storage Location (Internal Storage or SD Card)
✔ Download on Wi-Fi only (preserve mobile data)
✔ Auto-pause downloads with VPN drop
✔ Built-in fully featured music player with gesture support
✔ Built-in media browser (rename and delete your files from within the app)

FrostWire is a torrent downloader - it is not a content provider. The search results provided come from multiple torrent indexes across the web. If you can’t find what you are looking for, do a Google Search with a .torrent appended to it. Download your .torrent file or copy a magnet link and open it in FrostWire.
The content availability in search and the download speed greatly depends on your internet connection. For best results use non-public stable Wi-Fi connection.

It won't delete songs that I select to delete. It skips songs that it wants to at any point in the song 😐 sometimes at the beginning or sometimes halfway through the song,è it will just go to another song for no reason. Very frustrating. I use to use the service All the time but I started spending more time trying to make it play correctly than I was getting to listen to my music.

This is the first app I've EVER experienced that has ads automatically opening up their apps in Google Play instead of letting you decide! The torrents show SEVERAL shares available but they don't work and half the time when you do a search, it will delete what you typed in after you hit search. And also, some of the torrents are fake. It's NOT reliable at all. On top of that, when you transfer what you download to a memory card, it doesn't play even though it takes up that amount of space.

This app would be great if the app didn't just automatically start up on its own all the time, and if it would stop adding songs that I didn't download to my phone. I had 12 songs downloaded..if that. Now, I have every single damn song from a certain bands discography. This has got to stop. You'll maybe get 5 stars, if you fix it. But..for some reason I doubt that will happen. You just randomly add and subtract songs from my library..tell me.."wouldn't that get on your nerves? "
