LuckyWire is a free P2P file sharing app designed to replace the late LimeWire, featuring a very similar appearance and functionality.

Using LuckyWire is really easy, since the program follows the traditional interface structure you find in other P2P clients. If you used LimeWire before, you'll find it even easier. There's a search bar on top of the interface with a drop-down menu to filter searches by file type, and separate tabs for each search. LuckyWire works with Torrent files as well, and includes a built-in player - though only for audio files.

Results in LuckyWire can be displayed in two ways: in a list view that can be sorted according to different criteria (name, relevance and so on), or in the classic P2P view with a table that includes all the details about each file. LuckyWire is very fast – both in searching and downloading – but you should beware of fake results, which come up quite often and are harder to spot. Checking the file's properties should be enough to be on the safe side.

In short, LuckyWire is probably your best alternative to continue using LimeWire with basically the same features and user experience.

LuckyWire is an efficient LimeWire clone that provides fast search and download, without any nagging limitations or ads.
