Rogelio Triviño, the website’s creator, talks about the future: "Right now we’re working on gaining visibility and traffic so more users can try the service and provide feedback. Based on that feedback, we’re going to work on expanding our available tools and languages. We are developing an easy yet powerful interface so many people can use it and discover new applications that they’d never even thought of. Our next goal will be to provide all of these free services to the mobile world, so stay tuned..."
Convert Assist is a useful source of free online programs for every web browser and OS without any downloads or installation – it just needs a few common plug-ins installed like Java or Flash. This is a step beyond other software distribution models, recognizing that it’s not enough to simply be free, but it must also be easy to get, to use and to keep up-to-date. This is a path pioneered by open source software (General Public License – GPL) and currently sponsored by Google, with an increasing number of free online services and more multiplatform and free programs to download every day (Picasa, Google Earth, etc.). That software is great but it’s overkill when you just need a tweak, a piece of data, a calculation, or the occasional conversion; this is just the niche this service is intended for.
