Seeing as how time-limited this software is, I made the executive decision to not spend a valuable hour or two “reviewing” this software, instead just posting about it as soon as possible. However, it is a Wondershare product and Wondershare typically makes quality software so… yeah. If you give this freebie a try, feel free to share your experience with us in the comments  below.
