FrostWire performs smart searches on the most relevant torrent search results from BitTorrent search engines. This means it remembers every torrent it scans and increases your chances of finding what you want, super fast.
FrostWire retrieves search results from search engines and uses these results to crawl Azureus DHT to discover the contents of these torrents. FrostWire will not use bandwidth from search engines to do this. It will only use torrent info hash to execute DHT queries. This means that.torrent files will be fetched from the DHT and not from search engines' Web servers. Its search power is not dependent on any central entity.
FrostWire can also download directly from cloud sources (YouTube, Soundcloud), and has a full file library with a file player. FrostWire also has an Android app that allows users to transfer files between their Macs, and their phones over Wi-Fi.
