There are loads of different file formats for different files. For instance, you can find RTF, DOC, DOCX, TXT etc. for documents. On the other hand, there are .mp3, .aac, .amr, .dct and many more for audio. Alike these, you can also find more other formats for video and other media files.
Different formats go well with different devices. For example, on Android mobile, .mp4 videos play smoothly. You cannot find any kind of error. Nevertheless, there is no assurance whether you will get all videos in .mp4 or not. There are millions of videos those are in other popular formats.
This is when we need to convert files so that it fits in our device. For example, if your mobile doesn’t support .aac or .amr, you can simply convert it into .mp3, which is accessible on almost all devices.
There are several media file converters, what are available for different platforms. But, one thing is common among all of those third party media file converters. Most of them cannot convert different formats in bulk.
For instance, suppose, you have two .epbub files that you want to convert into .pdf and some .aac files that you want to convert into .mp3. If you use regular software to convert, you will have to spend a lot of time to convert all of them one by one.
That is where CloudConvert comes in. CloudConvert is one of the best file converters out there that is available as a cloud based app. You can also download this awesome bulk file converter on iOS. Just make sure that you have at least iOS 7.
