Back in June, we learned Frostwire would be bringing an Android app to the market as they’d entered alpha testing. We got a pretty good look at it back then, but we haven’t kept up with ongoing developments since. Before, it was said that this app would only allow peer-to-peer file transfers between people on the same WiFi network.


But according to the changelog today, Frostwire looks to provide a much larger scope than that. Take a look at this list of features they’re touting for the app’s first release.

– Search & download files on millions of devices
– Browse & download files from your closest peers
– Share files on Social Networks
– Explore, rename and use your own files
– P2P Chat room
– Send private messages w/attachments
– Control what you share
– Auto-updates

Unfortunately, 3G transfers are not allowed. You can find it in the Android market right now for $4.99, but if you would like to get it from their site instead, it can be had for free. (Download Link) Quite odd, but I’m not complaining. If you want to lend a helping hand to their cause, then I guess the Android market should be your first stop. You can find it there by scanning or touching the QR code below.
