WinMX Music joins the family of powerful file sharing applications with a strong recommendation for its overall enjoyable and intuitive layout. To install and run it is a walkover.
This P2P client is a great choice for downloading all types of computer files, such as music, video, images, games, and text documents. Its offering includes dynamic querying, file previews while downloading, advanced technology for tracing rare files, and a very generous user interface in terms of customization.
Since it is Java based, WinMX Music works with Windows, Mac and Linux. As a Gnutella client, WinMX Music is able to connect to about 2 million other users enabling the same size library as FastTrack and 2/3rds of the library available through ED2K.
WinMX Music comes with everything you are looking for in a P2P Gnutella file sharing application, like the capability to filter search results by file type, artist, size, bandwidth etc. In addition, users are able to resume downloads and throttle upload bandwidth and are allowed to download from multiple hosts to obtain their file faster.
To make things easier for the end user, WinMX Music conveniently gives you fields for title, artist, album, track number, genre, year, length and bitrate.
The program doesn't leave out useful features that other p2p applications may overlook and its search results provide more information on the files you're interested in. Apart from separating your searches by tabs, it also displays file type icons to easily make a distinction between files you're downloading.
WinMX Music is offered in 2 versions, WinMX Music and WinMX Music Pro. WinMX Music Pro includes better searching ability which means better downloads.
