Regular readers will know we really like Freemake, primarily because they produce excellent free software without any of the nasty malware or advertising nasties on so many other products. They focus on good quality media programs, and their latest is great.
Freemake Free YouTube to MP3 Boom is a free program which does what it says on the tin. It download and converts YouTube videos to simple MP3 audio files in high resolution. The interface is refreshingly simple and pleasing to the eye, which means there’s no brain power involved in getting things done.
You get options to audition and download the track in question, as well as a handy download meter when it’s running. It’s fast though, so unless you’re downloading a huge audio of a Macbeth play, you’re probably not going to spend much time watching the clock… seconds at most.
The options are basic as well, just where to download and the language, but it’s enough. The program also retains a history of past downloads, just in case you feel the need to revisit. We like this a lot. Simple, fast and very effective. Awesome.
