MP3 Rocket is a Gnutella and BitTorrent-compatible P2P network that allows you to download, watch and listen to free music, film and video and make video ringtones.
Similar to FrostWire and LimeWire
MP3 Rocket is very similar to FrostWire and the now-defunct LimeWire, so if you are familiar with them, using the app will be a piece of cake. Even if you are not, it’s an easy-to-use application and suitable for anyone who wants to start downloading movies, music and other content – as long as there are no copyright issues, of course! You can also convert video files to MP3s and listen to these on any music player, including mobile devices. The Pro version provides downloads and ringtones at 320kbs and HD videos at 1080p.
Managed via tabs
MP3 Rocket is based on tabs that allow you to quickly access the search engine, lists of popular files and torrents, your library of shared files and even online TV, radio, games and chat. The downloadable content is all free, but the ones suggested by MP3 Rocket are often links to pay-access web pages.
Poor quality audio and video player
The program can also be used as an audio and video player, but judged on these features it’s not very interesting and offers nothing that really make it stand out.
Ultimately MP3 Rocket is a solid app, although we've heard complaints in recent times that it’s no longer as reliable as it once was. Also bear in mind that as MP3 Rocket is Java based, it’s not suitable for older PCs. Overall, MP3 Rocket is a solid, if not awe-inspiring, P2P network client.
