Smart Converter is the fastest, easiest to use video converter on the App Store, thanks to it's Smart Conversion technology.

Why So Smart?

Works but barely

It works are advertised and converts a variety of file formats relatively well.

No options, including no ability to keep it from pushing files into iTunes… not everyone wants that and there’s no way to change it. No batch or queued processing. File by file operations.

Creates exceptionally bloated final files. Other converters did not bloat the same files nearly as much as this… I’m talkin 3x the file size for an Mp4 conversion. The next converter I tried gave 10megs less than original… not sure what they did but this is terrible!

Works great for Final Cut Pro

I know it is weird, both essentially being APPLE programs, but Quick Time Movies will not load in with Audio track attached, FCP leaves behind the audio and I get the error message that FCP doesn’t
work with Quick Time format, EVEN though FCP will save in Quick time format. ???? BUT the point is Smart Converter make it all work!

Spam, Spam, Spam!

You will get an ad to “upgrade to pro!” Every. Single. Time. you use this app. Occasionally, it will ask you to rate the app instead but still gives you a spam ad that you need to clear before you can use it. Need to do more than one file? You are going to have to do them one at a time. It does work but with all the options out there, I would recommend using a different one.

It’s obvious they want this to be a “free sample” version of the Pro app but it’s advertised as a full app. 1/5 - do not recommend.
