2.0 out of 5 stars Be cautious. January 3, 2013
By Josh

I downloaded this app to see if i was able to get torrents and music on my kindle fire (first generation).And indeed it had a lot of free music in its shelves and torrents and applications.But it deleted some of my apps memory and some of my already downloaded music.And when i tryed to download a torrent I was met with grief and frustration.

Pros:Good idea,in theory.Able to get free music and you are able to pirate some apps as well.

Cons:Deletes internal storage:music,apps,documents,etc.Not very east to use,very complicated,and doesn't have a large app database or torrent library to choose from.

Overall:Ive read the other the other reviews and its most half positive half negative.I just advise you to think long and hard if you want to roll the dice on this app to get free music with the risk of losing some of your already downloaded material.If you are looking for free music i would suggest YouTube Mate or YouTube downloader apps which are in the amazon App Store.Those apps lets you download music from Youtube free in MP3 format. Check out my reviews on those by just clicking my name above this review here and look around my reviews and you will find it.Thanks.

The defaults are set to share all the files on your device. That's never good. If you must use this of some reason, please check what you're sharing.
