    "Awful, Annoying Spam"

    January 27, 2013   |   By tumbleweeds321

    Version: ABC Amber LIT Converter 2.08

    Pros

    Nothing good to say about this software.

    Cons

    Spams every page with 'Created by ABCLIT and the url'. As someone else mentioned, on an epub file the message appears in the middle of paragraphs and is SO obnoxious.

    Summary

    Calibre is the way better bet for conversion software. Free and NO SPAM!

    "Humpty Fix, Spams so much!"

    June 10, 2012   |   By GeorgiaEire

    Version: ABC Amber LIT Converter 2.08

    Pros

    It can be useful for a very small, basic program that allows you to covert lit files into a range of other formates.

    Cons

    1. Spam. As another member mentioned it has spam on the top and bottom of every single page! It is the most annoying thing in the world to see.

    Summary

    Okay the fix for the Humpty.exe missing file is fairly easy. You have a shortcut (you know the thing you double click to get it to work?). Well right click that, click properties. Now in that window click Shortcut, go to advanced button bottom right. Once open click run as admin. Click ok and apply. Now go to the Compatibility tab (usually next to shortcut tab) click "Run this program in compatibility mode for: windows XP(Service pack 3)" it really does not matter about the service pack but XP helps. Now hit apply and then OK. You shouldn't find it effecting you again :)

    "Does the job, but spams you on every page"

    June 02, 2012   |   By fallingtrain

    Version: ABC Amber LIT Converter 2.08

    Pros

    Does as it promises, which is to convert lit files to something else.

    Cons

    What it doesn't tell you is it adds the lines:

    CONVERTED BY ABC AMBER LIT CONVERTER
    <WEBSITE URL HERE>

    on every single page.

    It's understandable that they would want to include a 'converted by' somewhere in the document, but forcing it into every single page is incredibly obnoxious and is pretty much like spam.

    It is extremely jarring and distracting if you should happen to be reading the document on a non-standard screen such as a Kindle, as it makes the CONVERTED BY spam appear suddenly in the middle of a paragraph in mid-page.

    Summary

    As said, it does the job, but you pay an extremely high price for it by having the CONVERTED BY spam plastered on every single page.

    I am using Calibre (http://calibre-ebook.com/) instead, which is free, organizes and converts your ebooks and documents to and from different formats, AND doesn't feel the need to ruin your documents in this manner.

    "I'm not sure. It doesn't open my LIT files"

    December 18, 2011   |   By syfyer1

    Version: ABC Amber LIT Converter 2.08

    Pros

    It doesn't open my LIT flies

    Cons

    It doesn't open my LIT flies

    Summary

    Doesn't work. I have several CNET Download Alerts and most of them I've already downloaded. A couple I thought didn't download when I got the Alert & downloaded again. Skype updated and quit working. The upgrade is BAD. I un-installed, and re-installed several times, and Skype always shut down when I tried to use it. The next morning I downloaded an older version and it works fine. Some times the upgrade really screws things up.

    AND. I KEEP GETTING ALERTS I'VE ALREADY DOWNLOADED (I CHECKED AND THEY ARE DOWNLOADED. ONE THAT KEEPS COMING IS THE TORRENT UPGRADE. CAN YOU STOP THESE REPEAT ALERTS? IT'S VERY ANNOYING AND I HAVE TO KEEP CHECKING EVERY ONE TO MAKE SURE IT IS A NEW ALERT AND NOT A REPEAT. THANKS

    Version: ABC Amber LIT Converter 2.08

    Pros

    Free
    Simple to use
    Works.

    This is the best program I've found for converting .lit books into .txt files.

    "Definitely does what it says it will do."

    May 10, 2011   |   By BDGibs

    Version: ABC Amber LIT Converter 2.08

    Pros

    Small file size
    Very easy to use
    A lot of conversion options
    Batch conversion
    Drag and drop
    Very fast
    Free

    Cons

    Looks and feels dated
    Would be nice to have some of the more current file types as options
    Broken download link at Process Text's website (possibly not maintained)

    Summary

    Quick and dirty conversion. I use it to get .lit files onto my Kindle. It does what it says it will do with frills and the bloat that some other programs have. That being said, it does feel a bit dated even though it worked on my Windows 7 64-bit machine without a hitch. All in all a great program that does the job better than anything else out there.

    "Annoying "Created by ABCLIT" on every page"

    April 11, 2011   |   By digzgraavz

    Version: ABC Amber LIT Converter 2.08

    Pros

    It's free, but there's much better free stuff out there. I have nothing else good to say.

    Cons

    Puts a VERY annoying "Created by" message on each page. This really sucks if you're using it on an Ereader.

    Summary

    Try something else. If I recommended something you'd think this was a shill review, so I won't. Just get yourself something different.

    Pros

    Quickly converts LI files to FB2 for Android FBReader.

    Cons

    GUI is not that intuitive.
    Could use an option to set a fixed save to folder.
