P2P file-sharing software FrostWire launches on Android Market

The multi-protocol file-sharing tool FrostWire has just launched its Android app on the Android Market, promising to bring the world of potentially dubious P2P content to your poor little SD card via the Android Market.

It’s been available on Android for some time via direct download, now it’s up on the Market for the mainstream users. Here’s the list of Android features, courtesy of FrostWire itself:

- Search & download files on millions of devices
- Browse & download files from your closest peers
- Share files on Social Networks
- Explore, rename and use your own files
- P2P Chat room
- Send private messages w/attachments
- Control what you share
- Auto-updates

Plus the Android app won’t work via 3G due to obvious reasons to do with being a massive bandwidth and data eater. Here’s a nice little montage of images of the app in action, issued by FrostWire:

If you would like to try it for free, there’s a direct download of the Android APK hosted on FrostWire’s site here – whereas the Android Market version comes with a $4.99 price tag attached to it.

    It’s showing as costing £3.17 in the UK at the moment. If it was free i’d have a look. After knowing how many viruses were spread using the desktop Frostwire, sod paying for it :p

    You can choose wether to pay or not for the app.

    It’s available for free at http://frostwire.com/android and through many other download websites, torrents, and through the application itself.

    The software is well worth the $4.99 though.

    It seems as though it is actually totally free, you just pay for it if you choose to download it from android market, which I think is kinda lame. There should’ve just been a donate button or an option to choose how much you wanted to pay.

    I don’t like how it shares APK files by default, this could make piracy much worse than it already is.
