Smart Converter for Mac

Smart Converter for Mac converts audio and video files into different formats, so you can play them in the program or on your preferred device. Just drag and drop a file to add it to the app, and then a few clicks later, you'll have your converted file accessible.

Pros

Intuitive interface: Just a quick glance at this app will be plenty for most users to get the hang of how things work. There is an open, labeled area that you can use to drag and drop your files into, and then simply select the output format you'd like. These options are organized by device or type of app you want to play the converted file on.

Smart analysis: This app employs a Smart analyzation strategy to determine whether both audio and video tracks of a file need to be converted, or whether the conversion is required for only the audio or only the video. This saves time by preventing the app from undertaking unnecessary processes, and it also ensures the highest possible quality of the output file by keeping everything in its original form.

Cons

Oversimplifying: Organizing output options by app and device certainly makes it easy to find the one you're looking for quickly. And many other programs also structure their choices this way. But this app may oversimplify things a bit by only allowing you to choose the program or device you want to play the file through and not the actual format. So if a particular device plays files in several different formats, there's no way to choose one over the other when using this program.

Upgrade ad: Each time you click the Convert button, you'll see an ad pop up encouraging you to upgrade to the paid version of the app. You're never obligated to pay anything to continue using the software, but the constant pushes to upgrade can get old quickly.

Bottom Line

Smart Converter for Mac is a good tool for quickly converting files, so you can play them on whatever device you choose. Because its interface is so straightforward, it's an excellent choice for casual and inexperienced users. However, more advanced users may be frustrated by the inability to choose specific output file types, among other things.
