Editors' Review

+

FormatFactory is a convenient utility that lets you convert files into different formats to facilitate sharing, save disk space, or make compatible with a mobile player. Through its intuitive interface, this program makes the conversion process accessible to users of all experience levels.

Pros

Lots of options: Especially if you're trying to convert files to play on your mobile devices, you should be able to find the format you need. A few of the file types available for conversion include MP4, MPG, AVI, MP3, 3GP, FLV, WAV, and many more.

Intuitive interface: This app features a clear interface, and an easy-to-follow process. Even those new to converting files will master FormatFactory quickly.

Good help: Any questions you may have should be answered in the comprehensive Help file, which includes numerous screenshots to show you the features.

Cons

Unsuccessful conversions: On a couple of occasions during testing, the app failed to convert a file to the selected format. A second attempt was successful in both instances, however.

Bottom Line

FormatFactory is a nice free utility that lets you complete conversions quickly and efficiently. The few bugs we found during testing are offset by its capabilities and ease of use.

"No good anymore"

January 31, 2016

2016-01-31 09:24:18

 |  Version: FormatFactory 3.7.5

Pros

Improved UI

Cons

First I had to decline all kinds of crapware/malware.
I had to be very careful in this process.
Then when I finally had it installed I converted a few musicfiles just to see how it performed. It changed the filenames into "formatfactory" in front of all the filenames!
What's the purpose of that? I can't use this program for anything.

Summary

Forget about it...

"works very well. Installed and runs without problem"

November 23, 2015  |  By Himself

2015-11-23 09:44:12  |  By Himself

 |  Version: FormatFactory 3.7.5

Pros

+ Easy to install
+ Install without adware
+ Does a good job compressing videos

Cons

- The user interface and workflow isn't very intuitive; you can figure it out, though

Summary

I use it to down-size cellphone videos into web videos, crunching them into 1/10 the size, while still usually keeping all the detail. Installation was super easy and I'm not bombarded with ads; didn't redirect my browser, unlike some other apps claiming to do the same.
