Editors' Review

XPS to PDF for Mac is a convenient and quick utility program that will let you convert any XPS files into several different viewable formats. Through this app's intuitive interface, you can complete conversions with just a few clicks, and the app opens automatically anytime you try and open an XPS file.

Pros

Streamlined interface: Even the most inexperienced users will have no trouble figuring out how to use this program. It features a set of clearly labeled controls across the top of the interface that let you add files and then choose what format to convert them to. The files you've added are listed in a large window below the controls, and you can select any one for conversion at any time.

Multiple conversion options: In addition to converting XPS files to PDF format, this app can also complete conversions into Image file or plain text documents. Another option is to extract only images from an XPS file. All conversions were completed quickly, and appeared in the desired format in the folder that we chose to save to in useable format.

Cons

Demo watermarks: The free demo version of this app inserts multiple large watermarks across every processed page, leaving the documents hard to read and certainly unfit for sharing. But the demo does let you see how quickly and correctly it can convert files. If you want your converted documents to be useful, though, you'll have to purchase the full version for $9.99.

Bottom Line

XPS to PDF for Mac is a capable and convenient program to use. It performs all tasks quickly, producing just the documents you need, exactly where you expect to find them. If you often have to complete these types of conversions, it's definitely a good investment.
