June 4, 2011

Freemake freeware is popular all over the world! Our new product – Freemake Video Downloader has reached a new threshold – 500 million installs! We’re happy to announce that new Freemake tool is used in 200 countries on all continents.

And it’s easy to understand because Freemake Video Downloader can be used as a universal Youtube Programm, AVI, MKV, 3GP, iPod, PSP, Android, etc. Remember that you can always get the present version of the software at Freemake website.

Freemake Video Downloader rapidly conquers emerging markets such as Latin America, South Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe.

With the new 2.1.6 version of Freemake Video Downloader, you can easily adjust the interface language within the program. The languages available are: English, German, French, Japanese, Spanish, Russian, Greek, and Chinese Traditional.

Before 2.1.6 update, users could set a preferred language upon software installation. However, the list of supported languages was shorter, and there was no way to make a different choice within the program after installation. So, users had to download and install the software again to switch to another language.
