What is the history and popularity of the app?

FileMinx was created to give internet users a simpler way to convert files. The application currently offers a large variety of file types for video, audio, document and image files.

What are the differences to other apps?

FileMinx provides users with a fast, easy way to convert files.

Conversions are made in real time so users are not left waiting for long periods of time like they are with other file conversion websites.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The FileMinx website has a very simple, but effective design. The primarily color scheme features light blue and white with the FileMinx logo in black. The website also contains banner advertisements, but these are generally kept to the top of the page and do not interfere with the usability of the website. As soon as a user arrives, they can access the file converter tool which is positioned right at the top, center of the homepage. A list of links and headers along the left hand side give the user more information on their file conversion options.

How does the registration process work?

FileMinx does not require any kind of registration or sign up. The user can get started as soon as they arrive. The website does not offer a registration option, so no extra features such as conversion history are currently available. This is really a good choice for this type of application. Users can visit the site, start converting files and move on quickly without dealing with a log in or account.

What does it cost to use the application?

Since there is no registration requires, naturally there is no fee for this service. FileMinx would have no way to charge users without adding some kind of information request. This is another benefit in favor of the application. Users can convert files as large as 50 MBs as often as they like. The site does not add any limitations at this time. There is also no indication that FileMinx is planning on adding a paid membership or fee for its service any time soon. Anyone can convert files at no cost when they visit FileMinx.

Who would you recommend the application to?

FileMinx is a helpful service that could be used by almost anyone. If the user has a file that needs converted quickly, FileMinx is a good choice. Of course the application is somewhat impersonal and watered down, so professionals and businesses may find it lacking. For the average user, the price is right for the service offered.
