BearShare Review

A review of BearShare by Fernando Ortega

BearShare is a freeware (though, ad-supported) filesharing application which has been jumping through legal hoops for some time now. It specializes in downloading legal movie and music content and currently integrates some social network aspects along with file searching and sharing.

The current incarnation of BearShare gives users the ability to search only through music and movie-type files which does a great job of filtering out unwanted malware such as viruses and spyware applications notorious on these types of filesharing networks.

As a reliable and legal alternative to what was known as Limewire, BearShare is a perfect candidate as an application to grab media files from the Internet, especially with the demise of many online file hosters like MegaUpload in the recent past.

The application is fully compatible with your portable music devices such as the iPhone, iPad, and iPods along with devices by other manufacturers like Sony Walkmans and iRivers. BearShare will also let you import settings and aspects of other filesharing applications like Limewire.

The social network aspect of BearShare gives users the interesting and perhaps unique ability of connecting with people across the globe who share a taste in music styles.

Overall, BearShare is a modern and safe filesharing application which is limited to downloading only known video and audio files. Be aware that when you get around to installing BearShare, you certainly want to uncheck the extras it tries to install, as your browser homepage may be affected.
