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.

"Contains Spyware"

April 11, 2015  |  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.

"If I could give it 0 stars I would"

April 02, 2015  |  By Alexander Leroux

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 1.0

Pros

It converts WMA files into MP3

Cons

It doesn't retain any of the info from the WMA so if you the song name, artist, album, track number etc it loses all of that info and you will have to retype it manually. The download contains adware and tricks you into installing it by making it look like you have install the adware.

Summary

This is more trouble than it's worth. Find another program to do this.

"Works as advertised just what I needed. No real issues."

April 02, 2015

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 1.0

Pros

Does a fine job converting from WMA to MP3. I had an issue where a music player on my tablet would not recognize WMA files; this software fixed that with no problem. Easy to use, and relatively fast. And you cannot beat free.

Cons

Free version only allows five conversions at one time. I wanted to convert one complete folder of music, and let it go while I did other things and could not. Even if it was fifty at a time, that would be great.

Summary

If you're looking for a simple WMA to MP3 converter program, this works just fine, and should serve you well. Might be worthwhile to look into paying for the upgrade if you have a lot of songs to convert, which is something I will be looking into.

"Neat conversions"

March 27, 2015  |  By Peggy R. Espinosa

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 1.0

Pros

The thing I like the most about this WMA to MP3 converter is that it delivers exactly on what it promises. Of course there are not a lot of frills with this app and that's fine for basic file conversions that I need to get done in double quick time.

Cons

Can do with few more features.

"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.

Summary



Updated on Jan 17, 2015

added info:
