Editors' Review

+

Many cell phones save recorded video and audio in 3GP container files, and not just phones on 3G networks; many on 2G networks do, too. While plenty of media players (such as VLC) can play 3GP files, a lot of people prefer to convert their recorded audio to MP3s for maximum versatility, as it's much easier to share MP3s and use them with other programs. Shiver's 3GP to MP3 Converter Plus freeware simplifies the task. It can convert even large 3GP files into MP3s without reducing quality.

This program's appearance is plain; it's hard to imagine a more down-to-business user interface than 3GP to MP3 Converter Plus possesses. The compact rectangle layout has two entry fields, each with a Browse button, though only the field labeled "3GP to convert" is active; the Save As field stays gray until needed. A Status panel displays the progress of both the Convert and To processes; beyond that, there's just a Convert button.

Many newer phones (like ours) save audio and video in different formats, such as 3GA or MP3, but we had some 3GP files in our archives. Using 3GP to MP3 Converter Plus couldn't be simpler. We browsed to our file and selected it, then selected an output destination and pressed Convert. The program converted our file in what seemed like no time. We opened the destination folder and then opened our converted file with our usual media player. It played normally, so, mission accomplished. There's no Help file for 3GP to MP3 Converter Plus, nor is one needed; this simple freeware has one purpose, to convert 3GP files to MP3 files, and you either need it or you don't. If you do need to convert your 3GP files to MP3s, try 3GP to MP3 Converter Plus.

    "A disgrace for CNET"

    July 24, 2013   |   By BamBam_A

    Version: 3GP to MP3 Converter 1.0

    Pros

    None whatsoever.

    Cons

    Filled with spyware and loads of crap that will do a hostile take-over of your browser defaults and install bunches of crapware that will mess up your PC.

    Summary

    Incredible that CNET does not only allow this program here but also gives it a good review. This accidental download from CNET will push me away from CNET as trusted download place completely.

    "Oh Cnet - what happened to you???"

    April 17, 2013   |   By sjtalia

    Version: 3GP to MP3 Converter 1.0

    Pros

    No pros - this is chock full of spam (and spam that's annoying to remove). Little program is probably okay, but there seems to be no way to download it without "Free Games" crap getting everywhere in the hard drive.

    Cons

    Cnet, I trusted you! I trusted you not to have programs like this in your downloads. Was this just a lapse in vigilance? Or a sign of things to come? Little shocks me these days, but I was actually shocked when I saw the amount of 'free games' spam spewing out of this download.

    Summary

    Steer clear of this massively annoying spam spewer. No good, Cnet, no good!

    does what it says on the tin

    Pros

    Fast, works as described. Small program too

    Cons

    I don't like the new CNET installer one bit

    Summary

    This program works like a champ on my Windows 7 PC. I'm not sure why others have had issues.

    No pros, it doesn't work unless you count the spam it loads on your system. I did do the custom install though...

    Hey it doesn't work take it off the site. It damages your reputation and makes you into a malware distributor.

    "Does not work"

    August 09, 2012   |   By dtfp

    Version: 3GP to MP3 Converter 1.0

    Pros

    No pros at all!

    Cons

    Does not work on Windows 7 = waste of time to install
    I suspect it of installing spyware = infection of pc + more waste time...
    I agree with the user that said it should be removed from CNET - what are you guys waiting for?!
