Format Factory 2.8 is a multifunctional freeware media converter that allows users to convert audio, video, and photos, between the most popular formats. Free Format Factory’s supported formats include WMV, AVI, MPG, MP3, WMA, AAC, JPG, PNG, GIF, and many more. Better still, Format Factory supports media formats used by most major portable devices, including PSP and iphone.
The Format Factory App is simple and user friendly to use, though it does have a slightly unintuitive interface. Format Factory’s file browser will not appear until user chooses the target format, which is a bit weird, but as long as users know this it’s no problem. Users can even select individual files to convert, or complete folders, and also tweak some basic conversion settings.
It is really handy that handles images as well as audio and video. Most converters like this only handle audio and video, so adding images to the mix gives it an edge, especially considering it’s free. People will also like the Audio Joiner in Format Factory2.8, which allows user to take two separate clips, join them together and then convert them. It would’ve been nice to have preset profiles for mobile conversions, but users can’t always have it all in a free app.
