Poisoned is a file sharing application for Mac OS X. Poisoned may look like your average file sharing application at first glance, but it is so much more. Unlike applications like Limewire or Kazaa that connect to only one file sharing network, Poisoned can connect to several seamlessly. Unlike Kazaa and several other file sharing applications, Poisoned contains no spyware and no adware. In addition, Poisoned, is, and always will be, free and open-source software.
We also release our code for other developers to work with. We embrace developer interaction with our program; we realize that the more people that contribute to this application, the better it will be. The philosophies behind the development of Poisoned are much like the file sharing networks themselves; its all about sharing with the community and giving back.
Poisoned connects to the FastTrack network (Kazaa, Grokster, iMesh), the Gnutella network (Limewire, Acquisition), and OpenFT. This is all made possible by something called the giFT daemon (http://gift.sf.net), the same people behind the OpenFT network. The different networks supported in our application are actually plugins for giFT. Right now, network plugins being developed for two high-profile networks: OpenNapster and eDonkey.
This means that in a little while, Poisoned will support 5 networks within one application, all with a low strain on your system. Poisoned supports multiple source download, so your files will download quick and painlessly. Poisoned integrates with iTunes beautifully, automatically importing into iTunes and deleting the original file if iTunes manages your music library. Poisoned is a GUI frontend for the giFT daemon that allows you to share files across the internet or a network.
