“But … I think a frostwire build for the Android operating system would be a great idea.
“If you’ve done any searching about Android you know its an open source software. Any phone running it is capable of heavy modification. I myself have rooted my phone for access to extra features. You could research an Android app called Shazam. It has the ability to listen to a song for 15 seconds and determine what it is. After using that app it would be great to be able to launch frostwire and download the song.
“With the 3G network and wifi capabilities, a Frostwire Android version would an awesome addition.”
Response from Gubatron?
Now “Soon” has arrived.
Today, the guys over at FrostWire, the LimeWire fork that’s been showing the world what ‘indie’ really means, promoting new music and sharing the way it’s supposed to be, will introduce FrostWire for Android.
“Whenever you find yourself in front of an open WiFi network with lots of people around, use FrostWire in a new social behavior way”, says the team.
Short Range Social Networking.
“This is about sharing with the people around you”, Gubatron told p2pnet.
“We think that close range file sharing is broken and we wanted to create what we think is a better option.
“For example, we hate to see the typical scene where people sitting at a table are using their phones to isolate each other. Phones shouldn’t be about remote interaction only and we hope this will be an option to have them interacting with one another by sharing files that mean something to them.
“We hope we can point out a big void in the smartphone software world with this application and help make things the way they should be.”
Stay tuned …
