FrostWire 6.0.2

Peer-to-peer based OS X application that makes it simple to share your creations with millions of people right from your computer, absolutely free
FrostWire is a free and open source P2P client designed to help you use the popular peer-to-peer BitTorrent file sharing protocol in order to find, download or share music, videos and a wide array of other files and multimedia content.

Comprehensive P2P based data sharing app

Moreover, FrostWire enables you to search for audio files, images, videos, books, applications or torrents, chat with community members or play media content in the built in player.

In addition, the FrostWire utility comes with iTunes integration and, thus, it allows you to quickly send the downloaded files to your iTunes playlist, making it much easier to download and manage your music.

Inbuilt video player

FrostWire can access SoundCloud and download music from the most popular sharing websites on the web. Furthermore, if a video is displayed in the results window, it makes it very simple and easy to view it using the built-in player.

Support for radio streams and Wi-Fi sharing

Another worth mentioning feature is the Wi-Fi sharing which allows you to transfer music to any supported operating system, such as Mac, PC and Android. FrostWire also includes support for Internet Radios, so you can easily listen to your favorite radio stations from within the application.

What’s more. FrostWire provides you with its own media library, where it automatically adds the downloaded files. This does not mean though that you can’t create your own folders and manage your files any way you want to.

DHT and HTTP torrent pre-fetch support

As an extra advantage, FrostWire is also capable of pre-fetching torrents via DHT or HTTP from most major online BitTorrent indexes.

Afterwards, all available metadata indexed by the loaded torrents files will also be automatically indexed on your computer in order to provide you with better and faster results for all your searches.

Find and download files that you could not discover while using conventional search engines

Therefore, while using it on your Mac to find downloadable content via the BitTorrent sharing protocol, FrostWire is capable of helping find very rare torrents that otherwise wouldn't appear in a search on the most popular BitTorrent indexes on the internet.
