Essential App for Digitizing Your Movie Collection
I have used iFlicks 2 for over a year now, and without it there is no way I could have converted my movie library (over 400 movies) to a digital collection. It is a very simple to use, yet powerful as you want it to be. Along with Handbrake, I used iFlicks to update the metadata and auto-import my movies into iTunes library. I was able to automate much of this process, as iFlicks allows you to create “Watch Folders” that can have custom rules to rename, change metadata, and move the file to a different folder (or iTunes). It is very easy for those who have only simple needs, but also very powerful and customizable for “power users”.
In addition to the excellent features and ease of use, iFlicks support is top notch! I had a particular project that required a custom complicated set of rules and I couldn’t quite get it to work by myself. Keep in mind that this was no fault of iFlicks 2, but my own limitations. So I sent an email asking for help and within 24 hours of emailing support, I had a perfectly working solution. I am somewhat of an app junkie, and this is a level of service that was above and beyond not only most other developers, but even my own expectations.
If you are looking for an app that can help you with processing your movies and TV shows, iFlicks 2 can handle whatever you throw at it. This is the app you’ve been looking for!
I took the time to write it. Please take the time to read it.
Updated Review: Although I love this app, I bought it when it was on sale. Now it's $25, which is too much in my opinion. Even though the app itself is great, I can't recommend it to people for that price. Come on, devs. I love supporting good apps by paying for them, but I don't know where you came up with that price. This app doesn't do THAT much. My rating went from 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ to 2 stars ⭐️⭐️☆☆☆ because I saw the new price tag. I bought it for $10. Then it went to its regular price of $20. Now it's $25. It's starting to look greedy the way this is going
Previous Review: I don’t know that I’ll notice a difference from the previous version of iFlicks to this current version. iFlicks already seemed to work fine and I didn't notice bugs or crashes. But I appreciate the developers taking the time to constantly improve it. This is what we as users expect from a paid app. I always recommend this app to friends and family who might benefit from it. 👍 To potential users reading my review: I recommend this app 100%. I’ve done my research and haven’t found anything better (I was recently researching this year, 2014, as well as in the past).
Does what it says, but certainly not a deal
I’ve been using iVI to convert MKV files into a format that iTunes can digest. The interface to iVI is a bit awkward at times and I don’t quite feel I have full control over it so I decided to give iFlicks2 a shot.
It does the job it sets out to do, but it’s nothing remarkable. It pulls in the metadata, it cross codes the file, it loads it into iTunes in the right place. The interface is only marginally more understandable than iVI, and it is far less flexible as far as encoding options.
If you’re unfamiliar with video coding formats, and don’t want to worry about it, then iFlicks 2 will do the job you want— just drag stuff in, and it converts over. If you want to have some semblance of control, or understanding what’s happening under the hood, then this probably isn’t it. There are some advanced features for scripting, rules and watched folders, but I can’t imagine those appealing to an audience that doesn’t want to create their own conversion presets.
Either way, iFlicks2 has a marginally cleaner interface but otherwise doesn’t stand out compared to much less expensive alternatives (iFlicks2 is $25 at the time of review).
