Softonic review

A free Acquisition clone

acqlite is a P2P client closely based on popular clients Limewire, Acquisition or Cabos. Just like these clients you'll find it provides a friendly interface, a good search tool and iTunes integration.

I was a little surprised that acqlite automatically connected to the Gnutella client at startup, as I usually like to have control over this setting. I did find acqlite enjoyable to work with and the search tool very responsive. I also like how it divides files by type like movies, pictures and text. The downloads and uploads are a bit hidden away at the bottom left, but they're easily accessible.

If you're worried by what sort of content is download you can set a number of filters provided by acqlite. You can force the client to ignore elements like adult content, spam, or files that do not contain the keywords you entered. This generally makes for more precise results.

acqlite integrates perfectly with iTunes and your iPod so you can easily share music and videos stored in the the Apple media player.

If you enjoy Cabos, Limewire or Acquisition, you'll like acqlite, which is very similar both on interface and functions.
