Review: Converter for Mac outputs music files from any popular format into MP3

Convert your audio files to MP3 format, using this appealing and easy-to-use application.

Converter for Mac enables you to convert audio files to the MP3 format, allowing you to choose between four different bitrate options. While it doesn't offer many features, it comes with a well-designed interface that not only looks good, but is also fun to use. Powered by Adobe AIR, this app has no advanced features, whatsoever, apart from the ability to convert multiple files, simultaneously.

Converter for Mac comes bundled with Adobe AIR, which needs to be installed in order for the app to run. After installation you are greeted by a minimal and quite unique interface: six hexagons with icons on them. Hovering over each hexagon with the mouse reveals its function. The app supports drag-and-drop and 64, 128, 192, and 320 bitrate conversion options. You can also designate the output folder for the converted files. We tried converting multiple files and the conversion speed was good, with one song converting in ten seconds or less.

If you have files you want converted to MP3 with as few clicks and options as possible, you should try Converter for Mac. This lightweight app has a very focused purpose and will help you get the work done. If, on the other hand, you need to convert a file to a format other than MP3, or want more conversion options, you will have to look somewhere else.
