Freemake was launched in July 2010. The 1st software that was uploaded to our website was Freemake converting tool for online and offline movies. The program was aslo widely used as DVD ripping software. We were working hard researching what options to include in the very 1st version, creating a great and user-friendly design for everyone. And finally, we did our best to provide a good free alternative to expensive and overloaded in functions programs that required advanced tech knowledge to be used.
Although our tools have not been on the market for a long time, many users have already tried them and have become our loyal fans. We have received many emails with positive feedback and great suggestions for future software versions and would like to thank you all for what you do.
LifeHacker notes: “With all video converting apps out there, it can get a bit overwhelming. Freemake combines almost everything you need into a clean, simple, one-stop-shop for all your video converting, editing, and burning needs”.
Freemake team has done a lot of work to be worth this award. For example, we have developed a unique algorithm how to burn a DVD, up to 40 hours of video content onto one disc!
