Poisoned 0.519 for Mac OS X
Poisoned is a file sharing application for Mac OS X.
Poisoned is a file sharing application for Mac OS X. Poisoned may look like your average file sharing application at first glance, but it is so much more. Unlike applications like Limewire or Kazaa that connect to only one file sharing network, Poisoned can connect to several seamlessly. Unlike Kazaa and several other file sharing applications, Poisoned contains no spyware and no adware. In addition, Poisoned, is, and always will be, free and open-source software. We also release our code for other developers to work with. We embrace developer interaction with our program; we realize that the more people that contribute to this application, the better it will be. The philosophies behind the development of Poisoned are much like the file sharing networks themselves; its all about sharing with the community and giving back.
Poisoned connects to the FastTrack network (Kazaa, Grokster, iMesh), the Gnutella network (Limewire, Acquisition), and OpenFT. This is all made possible by something called the giFT daemon (http://gift.sf.net), the same people behind the OpenFT network. The different networks supported in our application are actually plugins for giFT. Right now, network plugins being developed for two high-profile networks: OpenNapster and eDonkey. This means that in a little while, Poisoned will support 5 networks within one application, all with a low strain on your system. Poisoned supports multiple source download, so your files will download quick and painlessly. Poisoned integrates with iTunes beautifully, automatically importing into iTunes and deleting the original file if iTunes manages your music library.
Dont just listen to us, heres what some of our users had to say:
"This is. by far, the most easy to use application Ive seen. Beats LimeWire, acquisition, everyone Ive been able to find. I was downloading 'music related things' at up to 190 kb/s. Thats over twice as fast as with any other. I could see that at times, I was downloading from up to twenty locations at once, with 'Poisoned' dividing up the file and taking different parts from different users." -- Buster, MacUpdate.com
"i've been weary of these p2p apps for the mac for a while (thanks Limewire!), but this is really well built and does a great job. it's beautiful, fast, versatile, and i love the expand collapse feature in the dl/ul views." -- Subface, VersionTracker.com
"FINALLY - the answer weve been waiting for. I have suffered through LIMEWIRE, NEO, DRUMBEAT and ACQUISITION and given them all fair chances, and learned their strengths and weaknesses. DO NOT HESITATE - I have seen the future for MAC OSX DOWNLOADS and it is without question POISONED." -- tony4tony, VersionTracker.com
Why pay for an application that uses one file sharing network when you can use Poisoned for free, nag free. More functions and more networks than your average file sharing application, and a beautiful user interface, makes Poisoned the ideal file sharing application on any platform.
