Bearshare

Note: it seems that the version linked to this page is the last stable version of BearShare. The BearShare website closed in March 2017.

BearShare is a peer-to-peer and legal file sharing app that specializes in videos and music. With this simple tool, you can quickly and easily download audio, video, and image files from the application’s database.

The software includes an advanced search feature that makes finding your favorite media among the application’s over 15 million different files easy. You can also opt to apply parental controls to protect children from sensitive content and viruses.

BearShare is able to connect directly to your iPod or MP3 player, allowing you to transfer songs to and from your device. This feature gives you the option to create your own playlists, remove unwanted tracks, recover lost passwords, and burn CDs.

Is It Free?

BearShare v10 is free for download. There used to be a paid ‘Pro’ version on the official website that is no longer accessible.
