Different file formats and different apps to open one, with new apps and file formats users end up installing different programs to open the different files.For example the most commonly found apps for commonly used app are MS Office, PDF Readers, WinZip / WinRAR / 7ZIP for Archive Support, Media (Audio, Video ) Support – VLC Player.This give rise to the problem of having too many app’s installed, which can leave behind temporary file, run background process for auto-updating etc..
Open Freely is a free app which can handle over 100 + file formats eliminating the need for installing 3rd party apps for file format support.It supports file formats of applications related to Images, Windows Files, MS Office Files, Documents, Media Files, Archive Files and Code Files.
The advantage with OpenFreely is that it supports editing and also printing of the files opened using the interface, which was missing in FreeOpener which was earlier reviewed.Once the installation is complete the app creates association with all the supported file formats, so that the next time the file is opened using OpenFreely.
