Editors' Review

by   / March 14, 2013

Those using Google Books often find the ability to read books on multiple devices lacking. Google Book Downloader for Mac allows users to turn these books into formats for use on additional reading devices, with some limited functionality.

Google Book Downloader for Mac is available as freeware without any payment required for upgrades, although during use it occasionally asks for donations to the designers. Despite the lack of a native installer, the program's small size allowed for a fast download and installation. As a freeware program, technical support appears absent, and the program does not have instructions. A small and very basic interface allows the user to paste the Google Book URL of the item to download. Clicking an obvious "download" button begins the process of transforming the book into a PDF file for reading on a computer or another device. This process is easy and completes quickly. After conversion, any PDF reader will open the book. The completed book looks just as it would in the original format. Unfortunately, the program documentation mentions that converting multiple books in a short time may cause temporary account suspension.

Google Book Downloader for Mac works well despite its limited functionality and could appeal to users who frequently download digital books from Google Books.
