Editors' Review

+

Free WMA to MP3 is a fine converter, if all you need is to change over your WMA files. Sadly, most people will want a converter with more format support, and those aren't terribly difficult to find. This app does make up for that obvious lack of support with quality performance, though.

This app takes WMAs -- and only WMAs -- and turns them into MP3s or WAV files. You can't input any other file type, meaning you have to keep the original handy if you ever want the file to go back to its original format. There isn't any support for FLAC or other popular formats, either. In spite of that, Free WMA to MP3 does a fantastic job when it comes to converting. It never took more than ten seconds to get the file converted when we tested it, and it always came out sounding exactly the same to our ears. So, unless you're an audiophile, you won't notice any difference, whatsoever. The app's installation process is regrettably full of land mines. We had to opt out of four different add-on programs that tried to take over our browser and other parts of our computer.

That makes an already narrow app even harder to recommend. While Free WMA to MP3 does its job just fine, there are so many other audio converters that support far more formats without sacrificing any performance. You might be better off with those instead of this, as easy and effective as it is.

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 1.0

Pros

Free WMA to MP3 converter tool is one of the most unique apps that I have come across till date. Although the app performs quickly and precisely, there are many add-on programs included in it. Conversion can be made in a simple manner.

Cons

it has no support file which makes it a bit difficult to use. It also includes many unwanted programs.

"Where did they go?"

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 1.0

Pros

Fast, small

Cons

Can't find the converted files

Summary

I downloaded and installed the software. I denied all of the bloatware that came with it. The program is fast, but I can't find the converted files. I tried putting them in the original directory - nothing. Then, I tried putting them in My Music - nothing. Then, I tried putting them in the Desktop - nothing. What good is a fast, small converter if you can't find the converted files?

"tries to install junk, no result with conversion"

May 17, 2015  |  By CeriseRowan

2015-05-17 09:48:34  |  By CeriseRowan

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 1.0

Pros

I don't have many "Pros" yet.... watch the install carefully, I think you are agreeing to let Yahoo take over your life and other software invade your computer, this always worries me... the pro is, read the other options carefully and decline... the window did stay on the desk top, something win7 and itunes can't do.

Cons

I figure out how to import and convert the WMA files, setting up a place to save them was a challenge.... says converted but... the file is not there....

Summary

does not seem to work at all, and... no help

"CAUTION! Fraudulently Loaded With Adware/Spyware"

April 30, 2015  |  By ganerd

2015-04-30 17:46:15  |  By ganerd

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 1.0

Pros

Not one SINGLE one ? even after all the cleanup BS. The one from Maniac Tools is FAR BETTER than this and is only ad-driven not full of malware.
SADLY EVERY SINGLE ONE of 'CONVERT AUDIO FREE' products are that way!!
SO STAY AWAY FROM 'CONVERT AUDIO FREE' products and site

Cons

Fraudulently ADVERTISED as FREE yet nothing but ONLY adware!
Fraudulently does NOT let you know from the website it is only 95% adware.
Fraudulent! Even if you carefully disable all allowable adware options you are still FLOODED with ads. Had to down load the 'Autorun.exe' utility from Microsoft, to git rid of it.
Fraudulently tried to change your start page, tried to change the default search-engine, and actually installs swiffsearch ? one of the WORSE malware/adware around.
Fraudulently PURCHASES ANY possible positive comments on here!
More ads than even Firefox Ad-blocker Plus could not handle them ? however
PLEASE NOTE: AdBlocker Plus was able to be modified to block all. HINT, HINT!

Summary

CERTAINLY not worth the cleanup hassle!

A person or company is ONLY as good as their word. SO, if they will lie about ONE thing they will lie about ANYTHING! That leaves me wondering just WHAT damage, spy-ware or virus have they left in my system?

ABSOLUTELY cannot understand how CNET could allow/recommend such BS!! Reviews must now be bought off :(

"Contains Spyware"

April 11, 2015  |  By Chris Reich

2015-04-11 09:36:50  |  By Chris Reich

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 1.0

Pros

None at all. Dangerous install

Cons

Program comes in loaded with spyware. Very difficult to stop once the install starts. Install hides the windows which give you the option to block some spyware. Don't go near this program.

Summary

Program is a trojan for multi spyware installs. Don't go near it.
