FrostWire is a free open source file sharing client with BitTorrent support, first released as a fork of LimeWire. Gnutella support was dropped entirely, and now FrostWire only uses the BitTorrent network , popular cloud services to search and share files. You can now use FrostWire to send large files or entire folders to Colleagues, Friends and family. As of FrostWire 5.5.0 and FrostWire for Android 1.0 you can share files on a local Wi-Fi network between PCs, Macs and Android phones and tablets without any networking knowledge, just fire the apps, share and start streaming and sending files between devices, perfect for home networks, and collaborating teams in work/study environments, no more USB sticks or technically challenging network configuration to have computers in different environments share files with each other.
