Editors' Review

by   / February 24, 2013

Burning data, music, and videos to a disc saves space and allows use of media on the go. Burn for Mac is a capable and free alternative to native programs, albeit with a simple interface and limited features.

Burn for Mac doesn't require any upgrades in order to function. The small download was quick and we had no difficulty installing the program. Instructions and support are lacking, but the program's interface was fairly intuitive for those who have experience using other types of disc-burning software. File names may be manually inputted, but there is also a welcome drag-and-drop method included. Large buttons are labeled with the different categories of discs to burn, as well as functions for copying CDs and DVDs. Unfortunately, there seemed to be no way to rearrange CD tracks. Features are limited to burning discs for data, audio, and video, which is what one would expect for a freeware program. Although the program has few output format choices, the options available are sufficient for most uses. The process of burning CDs is simple, and the resulting discs played effectively.

For those who don't have or want to use native software programs for burning discs, Burn for Mac, while simple, is an effective freeware program.
