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.

As an open source community based project, FrostWire has been a quality choice among the best mp3 music downloader apps and torrent clients alike for over 10 years. You can find all Android and desktop versions & download them FREE from our website - or contribute to the code at

It seems about 90% of the search options either "error" out or they download up to 99% then quit. I've used this app for years. Also referred everyone I know to try it out. But I always run into this same malfunction app works good for a few days then the little red x shows up over the shield in the bottom left corner of the screen and bye bye to the excellent operations of old

Stellar app. I don't know why I forgot about torrents, maybe because I've only downloaded them via a desktop or laptop but I. so happy that I can download songs again. Or albums. movies, shows. I think i can even download video games if I get an emulator app. I can't say that for certain cuz I haven't tried but I'd be willing to bet. But yeah, fantastic app to share files with others. so if you want to download files and not stream, this is the way to go. ROM hard drive beware.

Inefficient. Many of my downloads freeze at 99% or much less. Most of the items in search will not download. They just give me an error message. Deleted files are still in my device along with multiple duplicates. I have to manually delete files but they never stay deleted. Frostwire used to work so well but now I'm so disappointed. Now all displays are vertical screen. I hate vertical screen. Stop making this app a phone app. I want to see my display horizontally .
