LimeWire is Down

Lime Wire was orderd by the court to disable the searching, downloading, uploading, file trading and/or file distribution functionality, and/or all functionality of LimeWire’s P2P file-sharing software.

The free, open-source Limewire Basic peer-to-peer program hit the Internet in 2001, tapping into the Gnutella decentralized peer-to-peer network to share a variety of legal and copyrighted files, including music.

Now that LimeWire is gone for good. What are Alternatives to LimeWire?


If you are a limewire fan, I personaly recommend FrostWire, because it includes much of the functionality of LimeWire’s free version. FrostWire uses both the Gnutella and BitTorrent protocols to download content.


BitTorrent breaks files down into smaller packets so that thousands of people can share the same file simultaneously. This scheme is particularly useful for trading large video files.


Vuze, formerly known as Azureus, bills itself as the “most powerful BitTorrent app on earth.” Earlier this month, it rolled out support for the new Apple TV, BlackBerry devices, and a wider range of Android devices in addition to existing support for various game consoles, TiVo, and Samsung TVs.

MP3 Rocket:
MP3 Rocket is a P2P program for the Gnutella and BitTorrent protocols.
MP3 Rocket offers live on-demand streams for more than 3,000 movies and TV shows, a Live Radio feature offering more than 1,000 live radio stations, and a Game Player providing access to more than 1,000 games.

  1. I can't remember the last time I used a p2p software. I only use direct links now!

    I might start using newsgroups also. Some friends find the rarest stuff on there!

  2. 3ala eedik.. Sometimes, it's not that easy to find a direct link. The p2p software is a lot faster and sufficient for some people, once you get the right downloading speed. 🙂
