LimeWire is an excellent P2P file-sharing client software
letting users download and share various types of computer
files, including pictures, movies, games, and text
documents. LimeWire has nice multiple search tabbed
interface. It allows user to search for multiple files at
the same time. Some other features include these: Firewall
to Firewall Transfers, proxy support, more faster connection
to network , preview of files, "Thread" downloads from
multiple hosts, integration of chat, support for
International searches and International groups, iTunes
Searches in LimeWire now immediately display the artists, albums and other information that fully describes files. Users can now browse the network and search for the most recent and actual content additions.
LimeWire is clear so it contains no bundled software of any kind. No spyware. No adware. Guaranteed.
When it comes to downloading programs such as games, images, documents, videos, MP3’s and other audio files you need to look no farther than LimeWare. The creators of this software have given us a unique way to get what we want or need in one P2P or Peer-to-Peer program. It uses a Java Platform to run, and Gnutella a file sharing network to scan your computer for downloadable files. You can find files shared through LimeWire in the Digital Audio Access Protocol, which is designed to keep track of media shared across the Network.
There are a few cons to LimeWare, such as if you want
even faster downloads you need to purchase LimeWire
Pro. You will also get a few warnings about there being
a virus or Trojan, however you this warning is displayed on
your screen before your download will begin. However, the
free version will tell you before you begin the download.
You may also see someone downloading files from your pc.
When it comes to this do not worry though, it is very common with P2P programs. You can see what they are downloading and stop it if you want to.
The pros to LimeWire are as vast as its resources. You can
download and try out programs that would normally cost you a
lot of money. You can also download an entire CD, and burn
it to disk. Some of the other Peer-to-Peer programs do not
have this feature even though they advertise it. During the
startup of the program, it has a Tips and Tricks screen that
popup. These help you use LimeWire even more
efficiently. A huge pro is the download time and
availability of finding and installing LimeWire
itself. You do not have to be a computer expert just an
It is designed to run on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and
RPM or Red Hat Package Manager, unfortunately the Mac OS 9
was dropped when LimeWire 4.0 came out in 2004. You will
also find the programs requiring a product will have one
somewhere in the download itself.
Summary and Rating
If you are one of those who find that the basic and free
version no longer suit your needs, you can upgrade to
LimeWire Pro for 19.95 United States Dollars or
9.65 Pounds. LimeWire originally produced as LimeShop and
was once considered to be spy ware, however since it came
out in 2004 that has no longer been an issue.
When it comes to summarizing this program, the list is
endless. I cannot give enough praise to this program. My
family and I are always looking for fun things to do and
LimeWire gives us this, with just a little bit of our time.
My overall rating has to be a resounding 8 out of 10. We hosts limewire free download for you on our file servers.
