Upgrade to the full version of Tunesify, available exclusively on the Mac App Store, to add support for converting many different audio formats such as WMA, WavPack, Monkey's Audio, WAV, FLV and Ogg Vorbis. Tunesify also allows files to be converted to MP3 format, converts files up to 4X faster on multicore computers and takes advantage of your more...

Version 1.1.1 DOES work on 10.6.8. Thanks to the developer for fixing this. Nice, intuitive/obvious UI with drag 'n drop capability.

And I still like the icon.

And Tunesify Lite IS free.

Version 1.1.1

But yeah, as goes the discussion below, it only converts to m4a and a few other formats for free. Have to upgrade to, i.e. pay for, Tunesify, if you want to convert to mp3. Guess that's a problem for hand-held devices, but I am happy to have a free-n-easy conversion application to get FLAC tunes converted to m4a, so they can play in iTunes on my computer.

Ver. 1.1 craps out on start up using a 2010 MBP (64 bit) with OS 10.6.8. Nice icon though...

Maybe it's my imagination but it seems that MAS applications have more of a tendency not to work than those available directly from the developer.

NOTE: Although it is says this app is "Free"...it is actually a DEMO for a COMMERCIAL app.

"Tunesify Lite will create 30 second previews of audio files that are only supported by the full version of Tunesify."

Don't try to actually use this for anything other than to see if you want to buy the commercial app. I give it a poor overall rating because this is misleading, a poor Features rating because it is crippled, and a poor Value rating because I wasted my time trying to accomplish the task, "convert a flac file to mp3".

Tunesify Lite will fully convert FLAC files to Apple Lossless or AAC for free. Only MP3 and the other formats require the full version.

I agree with Rollandburn, please update the description of Tunesify Lite and clearly state that for converting to mp3 (and other crucial limitations) the user needs a paid license to the full version.

Thanks for the feedback. I updated the description to explicitly say "Tunesify Lite will fully convert FLAC files to Apple Lossless, AAC or WAV and will create 30 second previews of other conversions that are only supported by the full version of Tunesify."

If anyone is curious about why I chose those limitations, prior to creating Tunesify I had an app called FLAC2Mac that solely converted FLAC files to ALAC, AAC and WAV. I didn't want to remove any features for people who were already using my app so Tunesify Lite supports all the same conversions as FLAC2Mac.

FLAC2Mac could bring something new and compelling in the future.

But in the mean time, use Max/XLD/xACT. More features, more mature code, good performance.

Work well for me on 10.5. Drag and drop would be nice, and what I really missed is a progress bar in order to get a feeling how long the conversion will still take.

Nice little application.
Support of Drag and Drop would be a little more userfriendly.

- No multi channel support (it just quits after pressing convert)
- No 24bit and 32bit support (it just quits after pressing convert)
- Doesn't read OGG and AAC files
- It uses very old FLAC unix binaries. The developer needs to compile the latest version.
- No meta info/writing

Ok, this is a alpha release but it just doesn't work and should be released at this stage.

"-Doesn't read OGG and AAC files"

Wouldn't it then need to be called FlacOGGAAC2Mac?

When I downloaded the app I expected it to convert FLAC files to iTunes compatible files. I expected that because I read the description and name of the app. Since it wasn't named FlacOGGAAC2Mac I didn't expect it to also convert OGG or AAC files.

The only time the app crashed for me, after I converted about 600 songs, was when I mistakenly added an .m3u file to the convert list. That was my fault not the app's fault though.

This worked on my SNow Leopard Mac Pro just fine. Given that it is a no frills converter it's great. I would like to suggest 2 little additions to it though: A button to clear the 'add file' list after your done with that specific conversion, and an option box to select more than one file/album at a time. Otherwise it's great!
