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.

"Didn't work, wants to install other stuff"

February 04, 2015  |  By jcwnmet

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 1.0

Pros

Narrow focus WMA to MP3 was exactly what I needed.

Cons

Didn't work (said it did, but it didn't)
Too easy to accidentally install unwanted unrelated software during installation.

Summary

Installation tries to trick you into installing a weird browser, and three other unwanted pieces of software. I had to dig to figure out what I needed to do to just install the converter software. Once I did, the interface was clean and easy. After telling it several files to convert and into which folder to put the output, I told it to run. And, it ran very fast (great!) and said that the conversion was successful. But, the converted mp3 files were nowhere to be found. So, the software is all proud of itself, but there was NO output. What a waste of time.

"be careful to avoid added junk - works but not great"

January 17, 2015  |  By js2vw

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 1.0

Pros

Does most of what it says it will.

MP3 files play OK.

Cons

Be very careful and read each window of the download and install process so you can identify the added junk programs. Some of the "decline" or "no thanks" buttons were obscure and easy to miss.

Once installed, the ConvertAudioFree Free WMA to MP3 program worked but I could not get it to place the .MP3 files in a different folder than that of the original .WMA file.

"Easy and fast to use"

October 26, 2014  |  By llkiser

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 1.0

Pros

In one simple operation I was able to convert over 1000 WMA files to MP3 files. At about 10 seconds per file it took a while. I was impressed by the quality of the software. What I did was do a search in Windows for all of my WMA files. Then, I selected them all in the search results and dropped them on the list area of this application. It took all of them. Then, I just asked it to do the conversion. After 3 hours or so they were all done.

Cons

The user interface is a little obscure. Once you have all the files loaded all you need to do is press the convert button and it works.

"Cnet downloader installed 3 pieces of malware."

September 22, 2014  |  By SP116b

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 1.0

Pros

Program works as advertised

Cons

Any benefits provided by the program are totally cancelled out by the hour + it took to remove the malware CNET bundled with it. Not only were the malicious programs installed on my computer, but they seemed to changed every single setting in my browser requiring huge amounts of work to make firefox usable again.

Summary

I hate you Cnet!
