Sharestastic is a P2P sharing application. It works with various sharing networks, such as Gnutella, Gnutella2, DC++, eDonkey and BitTorrent, which noticeably expands the possibility that you will find what you are looking for. This also lets you share data with a much larger community of users.

The program has an attractive interface that gives you quick and easy access to most features. It allows you to search the above-mentioned networks, and when you get the list of results, you can configure it according to your preferences. The program also comes with a built-in media player to preview the downloaded contents.

This application has a powerful media library, which scans your disks and organizes the downloaded contents into such categories, such as documents, programs, music, books, TV shows, films and music videos. Moreover, the files referenced in the library can be easily shared with other users of P2P networks.

There is also a Transfer tab, which shows the current state of all file transactions. The list can be filtered according to the type of content being downloaded; and since it also displays the names of the users you are sharing information with, you can select one of the names and start a chat with that user.

In general, Sharestastic combines two characteristics that are not commonly found in a single P2P client, because it is both easy to use and powerful. Unfortunately, some of the networks, mainly Gnutella, take too long to connect, but this could be a specific problem with the network and not the program’s fault.
