LuckyWire is a peer-to-peer client that intends to help you find and download various files by connecting to multiple sources. It can also be used to open torrent files and download their content to your computer.
The program features an easy to use interface which allows you to organize your shared files into libraries. The tabs enable you to search for multiple files at the same time and to view the results in order to select the item that you want to download.
You have the option of launching a search by simply selecting the file category and the keyword. The search results can be filtered by specifying additional criteria such as the file size or the video quality.
The advanced search feature enables you to specify other details such as the music genre or the bitrate but is only available for the audio and video files. You cannot specify the file type or other criteria for documents, programs or images.
If you need to share files with your friends, LuckyWire enables you to sign in with your Gmail or Jabber account. This feature lets you view the shared files from the friend’s computer and download them. You can also share a file list to the friends connected to your account.
Although we performed multiple searches with general keywords, the application failed to locate any shared files in order to download them. It successfully downloaded torrent files and required insignificant resources during the process.
Overall, LuckyWire has a nice interface, includes useful features but returns few or no results when looking for files to download. Although you can use it for private sharing and downloading torrents, you should look for another solution for finding P2P downloads.
