FrostWire Plus is a simple yet powerful BitTorrent Client & YouTube Downloader in one for Android. You can search, download, play & share files directly on your Android device, all without exiting the app.
FrostWire for Android has two versions – the Basic from Google Play and the Plus from frostwire.com Both versions are free and otherwise identical. FrostWire Plus includes YouTube and SoundCloud downloaders.
To install FrostWire Plus on your Android device you need to go to frostwire.com and tap on ‘Get the APK’. Once you see the ‘Download Completed’ notification on your phone, tap on it and the installation will start automatically. You might have to ‘Allow installation of apps from other sources’ in your phone’s settings – you will be automatically prompted during the installation, so don’t worry.
One installed, you’re ready to enjoy the app.
To find a file, FrostWire Plus searches multiple torrent indexes, as well as YouTube and SoundCloud, the moment you enter a keyword in the search bar and press enter. Just like google searches websites, FrostWire searches for files. Once you see your results, you can narrow down your choices by file type (music, movies, images, apps, ebooks and full torrent packages). You can also preview audio and video search results from cloud sources by tapping on the play button over the thumbnail. If a file does not have the preview icon, it most likely means it comes from the BitTorrent network and you will be able to play it from the transfer screen. Once you choose your file, just tap to download. Look in the transfer screen to see the progress of your downloads. In the case of music or videos, once you see a play button next to the transfer you can touch it to start playing, often way before the download is complete.
Keep in mind you can adjust your downloading preferences from the main menu under settings. Among other things, you can set your default file save location to SD Card or Internal Memory & choose if you want to download on wi-fi only or use your mobile data plan as well.
The My Music section is a fully featured Music Player. FrostWire will index all the music on your device automatically, including all your FrostWire audio downloads, and presents the files here for easy access and playlist creation. The gesture based controls of FrostWire’s music player are great when you drive or run.
And finally the My Files section, which indexes all your media files, including your FrostWire downloads, allowing you to easily find, rename, or delete a file from right inside the app.
Search, Download, Play and Share any file on all your devices with FrostWire.
