Pricing and Availability
The version we used for this review is only available for Windows PC users and it retails at $24.99. We do not recommend the free/trial version of this utility tool as it is limited to lots of goodies.
- Intuitive interface
- More than 10 different language support
- Reliable video downloader/converter
- Simple and easy to use
- Would be a more better software if the company integrates iPhone assistant features (Backup and restore)
