FrostWire for Android – the first mobile P2P file sharing freeware

FrostWire for Android is the world’s first P2P file sharing network program for a mobile phone. It’s WiFi only so no 3G transfers allowed, and it comes with all the chat and sharing features you’d expect. The freeware is based on a new file sharing protocol called MetaFrost which is optimised for mobile phones, which means your choice of general public content will be less, but your downloading experience should be better.

I especially like the dev’s commitment to open source the code once it’s stable, and the fact that they’ve properly thought out the whole mobile file sharing scenario. For instance, how many times have you wanted to share a video you’ve taken with your friends at the dinner table or at an event? Or what about someone giving a presentation sharing their slides with the whole room instantly? Or a band sharing a track at their live concert? It’s a really neat technology and goes way beyond just pirating the latest movie or album. Check out the press release for more info.

We designed and built FrostWire for Android thinking of how the world should be, before FrostWire for Android the most social device by nature (your phone) was crippled when it came to connecting with people near you, it was a great device for remote interaction (email, phone, web browsing, tweeting, blogging) but not for close range interaction. Now you can connect and share one of the most precious assets in your mobile device with those around you, your files.

    "world’s first P2P file sharing network program for a mobile phone"? Really? There have been torrent software's for ages for Symbian mobiles and nowadays to Maemo also.
