Free LimeWire replacement for Mac

LimeWire was once the most popular and super fast file-sharing app, however, a court order from October 26, 2010 has ended the era of LimeWire. They had to shut down their entire operation, including the searching, downloading, uploading, file trading and/or file distribution. LimeWire taught its users not just to download content, but to share it with others.


Now that it is not existent anymore, users are searching for a worthy alternative to LimeWire. We found a really fantastic LimeWire replacement for Mac that can download all sorts of files reliably and fast.

Folx is a great alternative to LimeWire for Mac that unites two main functionalities in one software body: a download manager and a torrent client. Folx is very easy to use: open the web page where there is a file you want to save, click its link and the download will be initiated. Folx can resume paused and interrupted downloads and offers a very convenient tagging system for your downloads so that you can find files in a blink of an eye even if you downloaded them a long time ago.

And that is not all this LimeWire alternative offers! Folx has a PRO version also. Easily activated it adds a lot of perks to downloading:

  • split the downloads in up to 20 threads for higher speed;
  • schedule the download tasks up to your convenience;
  • smart speed adjustment for the best traffic allocation;
  • add music & videos to Music (former iTunes) playlists automatically;
  • search multiple trackers for torrents at once directly from the app;
  • save passwords for the most used websites for faster downloading.
