Great app, terrible business practices.

The developer just wrote a response to this review. It reads:

"Sorry, but I don't get what is wrong with allowing customers to purchase an upgrade. If you don't want it, keep using the version you have. In case you want to use the new features, purchase the upgrade. Simpel as that.”

To that I say: I agree. There is nothing wrong with charging for a new version of an app. Gotta put food on the table. But pushing out an update that cripples existing, functional software and then asking for money to return it to its former, usable state is not an upgrade. “Extortion” is probably too strong a word, but it’s in the ballpark. Jendrik, if you want to restore some customer goodwill, restore iFlicks 1.x to how it used to be (before your subscription model), and leave iFlicks 2 on the store as-is. People who are content with the version 1.x feature set can go about their day, and folks who need/want more can upgrade to 2.x.

My initial review:

As a customer, you should never be able to purchase an app, “upgrade” it, and then not be able to use it… but that’s exactly want happened with iFlicks. Fortunately I was able to restore my old 1.x version from an old backup, but now I’m stuck never being able to click the “Update All” button in the App Store, unless I want to deal with that rigmarole again. iFlicks 1 is still indispensable, but I can’t recommend iFlicks 2.

Sorry, but I don't get what is wrong with allowing customers to purchase an upgrade. If you don't want it, keep using the version you have. In case you want to use the new features, purchase the upgrade. Simpel as that.

EDIT: The original iFlicks is still available for the users who have bought it. It is barely functional on current OS versions and can not be updated through the App Store due to Apple policies, so the choice was made to offer the new version. If the update button on the App Store is your only problem, this can easily be resolved. Just contact if you need any help with this.

Can't Encode Blu-Rays

I've tried 2 different Blu-Ray discs so far, and I've had no luck with either one. My first attempt was with Immortals. While I own a digital copy, I wanted a HD version. The resulting .m4v file had 1 hour of a pure grey screen at the front of it. I ripped it with HandBrake (without all of the tags that I wanted in the copy), and it worked just fine.

My second attempt (tonight) was with Inception. Again, I have a digital copy at 720p but wanted a HD version. This time I had a lot of problems in addition to the grey screen issue. First, while HandBrake was able to read the Blu-Ray image I created with makemkv and read in the play lists, iFlicks was not. Instead I was left with all of the individual stream files. I went through the painful process of figuring out which ones were part of the movie and in what order in an attempt to glue something together. No go. Instead of creating a single .m4v file out of all of the individual stream files, I ended up with a bunch of individual .m4v files, each with 1 hour of grey screen proceeding the actual content.

I've had absolutely no luck with this program. I read reviews that billed it to be as good as HandBrake, but this just isn't the case from what I've experienced. Save your money and use HandBrake. For tagging the videos, use makez (free download from the authors). It doesn't do every tag, but the ones that it doesn't do can be done from within iTunes to complete the job.

Great software, but it has its issues

This is by far the best piece of software for tagging and importing your non compatible media files into iTunes. It offers a great interface that takes only seconds to learn. It automates a task that otherwise would take much longer and would require my active attention. However the app is not perfect, I've had some problems with the encodes jamming and halting the entire queue and forcing me to quit the app. I would like the app to be able to recognize when a video will not encode properly and move on so as to save time. Additionally I would like to see it store the state of the queue so that if it does crash, or you're forced to quit, you can continue quickly. Finally my last request is that when adding media to iTunes the program separates the task of adding from the next item in queue. Adding large files to iTunes can take a long time and I don't see why this should halt the progress on the rest of the files.

Aside from the issues, this app is excellent and I am very happy I paid the $20 for it. For those of you who may be unsure about paying the fee (which is larger than other MKV converters) know that the time you save and the great features offered by this app are well worth the additional cost.
