FW Editor: What are your plans or objectives in the near future?
Laura Bochner: In the nearest future we'll publish more programs to convert video for mobile devices (like iPhone, Nokia, Motorola, HTC, etc).
As for 3D area, which is new for us, we will continue developing it further. There are plans to release Free 3D Video Converter in autumn.
FW Editor: How and when did you start writing the code for Free Studio? What inspired you the most? Do you plan to develop new software, or are you more focused on optimizing the current ones?
Laura Bochner: At the beginning we distributed paid software as an affiliate. Some time later our own products appeared on the site. The first program was Free
YouTube Download which immediately became very popular among YouTube admirers. This success inspired us to create more YouTube applications.
Later on upon users' requests we started developing video/audio converters, editors, disc burners.
We are constantly improving our software but it doesn't prevent us from developing new applications. Our main goal now is to provide our users with the opportunity to download content from different web sites, not just from YouTube. I must say the development has already started.
FW Editor: Why this selection of 25 tools? What was the idea for this selection: quality, simplicity or cost?
Laura Bochner: First of all, we focus on the simplicity of the programs, however, it's also significant that they are free.
Talking about Free Studio, its list of applications will be extended soon.
FW Editor: What shall we expect from Free Studio in the future?
Laura Bochner: In addition to the already mentioned expansion of the programs list, Free Studio will be redesigned considerably.
FW Editor: Free Studio has quite a strong competition but, so far, it succeeded in making a name for itself. What do you think about the huge success of Free Studio?
Laura Bochner: Simplicity of free programs and efficient technical support help us to be noticeable among lots of other software developers.
FW Editor: What are the advantages of using Free Studio over any other similar product?
Laura Bochner: It's free, simple and very useful.
FW Editor: Is Free Studio compatible with other similar packages?
Laura Bochner: Sure, it supports most of popular media formats and codecs, both for input and output.
FW Editor: What is your favorite feature from Free Studio and why?
Laura Bochner: Well, the most interesting feature, as I think, is downloading top YouTube playlists from other web sites. At least I haven't met it in any competitor programs.
Besides 3D Photo Converter is our pride.
FW Editor: Do you have any message or anything to share with Free Studio users?
Laura Bochner: Dear users, we develop owing to your ideas and suggestions. You are invited to our forum and DVDVideoSoft page on Facebook. Don't hesitate to
post your comments, perhaps you'll become an initiator of a new application.
