Cabos Editor's Review

Cabos is a Gnutella P2P network file sharing application based on LimeWire and Acquisition.

Unlike LimeWire, or its clone, FrostWire, Cabos has a quite fast user interface. It has less glitches, while it maintains a decent level of usability.

The interface is pretty well structured. There is a sidebar and a main area. The sidebar provides a text input area where you can type your search queries. At the bottom of this text input, the application places all the search queries, so you can do multiple searches at the same time. At the bottom of the sidebar there's the network status, the download, and the upload status.

The main area of the interface displays the files founded by the search, the files that are currently in the download list, and the active uploads. Depending on the file type, the application provides you some extra information besides the file size, such as bit-rate, or tag information if it's an audio/video file, or the network availability.

The 'Preferences' panel is also structured very well. It provides functionality like: search customization, appearance customization, download options, iTunes import for the downloaded audio files, sharing options, network options, or advanced features customization.

The search functionality works quite well. The download availability and speed depends on the network peers though.

Pluses: it is quite easy to use, faster than other Gnutella applications, it integrates well with Mac OS X. It's also completely free, so there isn't any 'Pro' version.

Drawbacks / flaws: slow interface speed in certain cases, but still much faster than the original application.

In conclusion: if you are a LimeWire/FrostWire user, maybe this application can be a useful replacement for any of those two.

version reviewed: 0.7.2
