AlienConverter for Mac3.5.7

19 June 2016

Simple file format converter.

What is AlienConverter for Mac

AlienConverter (was iFile) makes file format conversions easy and simple. You can convert single or multiple files at once into the following formats:

  • Microsoft Word (.doc)
  • Rich Text Format (RTF) - (RTFD)
  • Simple Text (.TXT)
  • HTML documents and HTML Web archives
  • XML documents
  • XHTML is supported through convenient conversions from HTML and to HTML

You can also instantly convert multiple formats into single file format. AlienConverter also performs multiple and simultaneous file-folder locking-unlocking. File conversions can be done also with files and documents directly from-to external drives, USB devices, iPods, etc. This also applies to locking-unlocking folders, volumes, and files. AlienConverter also allows you to quickly make audio (.aiff) from most of the document formats mentioned above.

I had a large number of .RDF files I wanted to use in Pages, I put the s/w to the test and in a couple minutes I converted 5MB of files to .DOC documents. ALL converted with no hiccups or problems in the process. Well worth the $ for this fantastic piece of s/w Thank you for you work .. I will register this s/w right now - did what it claimed it would do and solved all my problems by putting all my mishmash info in .DOC format. Bye ye to .RTF documents!

I have been using the software since 2008 and I feel it deserves to be rated. I would like to see this app in the app store for simpler updates. It is not perfect ( need to update it manually, PDF could be added to Word ) hope my rating will encourage the dev to add those features. Keep up the good work!

works exactly as advertised, very easy to use ( drag and drop thing ). The devs are more than responsive which I find really important. I find the price range a bit steep, but then since i dont work for free I dont expect other people to work for free either. 4.5 stars for all the features, and if they would include a video encoder too ( as per their email they might ) it would get a 5 star from me. Bottom line: Usefully tool to have.

I need a program that converts Macwrite files to a current Word format. (or even a not-so-current). I have a number of MacWrite II files that I can no longer open. I understand this program USED to have that functionality but they've since removed it. I presume because they figure no one needs it anymore. Well, some of us DO. Perhaps they can release a stand-alone MacWrite converter? That would be most helpful for I believe a number of us, and a great introduction to your program. On another note, I have a bunch of old mac/aol sounds that need converting, and unfortunately nothing current opens those EITHER. Or maybe I just need a virtual old Mac...

I was just wondering how you guys feel about how you trashed your program by deleting the MacWrite, Sound, and other files from OS 9 and below. You do not give one damn about the MacUser at all! I gave you the files to do it and you did, you did it so well that I could open them in Text Edit with all setting save as well. But you could not stand to give me any credit for it or even give me a serial number so instead you took a step backwards and removed it but, I save my DLs and just went back to the original version so even though I cannot do batch conversion, I can do it one at a time. At least you were stupid enough to not put a timer on it and I have resurrected almost almost all my reviews from 1985 - 2000. Your program had such potentiality but, you had to bite the hand that fed you. Like I said you could care less about the MacUser. Well, at least I have the satisfaction of how your downloads have dropped. You deserve everything you get. End of Line...

I write again because these people are very spiteful. They have removed the MacWrite converter from their last PPC version. This tells me that they do not give a BM about MacUsers by doing this. Luckily I had an earlier copy and went back to it. People who develop software for us normal care about us and do their best to supply us with as much as the program can do. This is the first time in my writing history where a developer took a step backwards just to spite my comments and take away a resource that seasoned MacUsers needed. I was at a user group meeting not too long ago and took a poll of how many people wish there was a converter that could convert pre-OS 10 media into usable OS X media and about 200 hands went up. So there is a need for a converter and the people that AC basically shot them selves in the foot for their own stupidity! I urge a boycott of this software because obviously they do not give a damn about MacUsers! I have noticed that the download count has dropped so some people seem to agree with me. All I know is if a programmer is willing to take a program a step backwards, obviously should not be supported.

I wrote one comment about them, now I will say more. These are the most selfish people I have ever dealt with. They still neglect to say that AC can also convert old MacWrite files to RTF that can then be opened in Word because I gave the material needed to do it and I have never got a thank you from them or even a serial number for the time I spent helping them! That is the reason they do not state it because they would have to give me credit in it's development. I have other material I would like to send them, but with I could care less on how you help us, I refuse to send them any more material or programs that would infinitely increase the over all power of this SW that would help Macusers with files prior to OS 10. I am a very ill person who cannot work and only gets SSDI each month and that does not even cover my bills. I hoped that by my help they would include me in their development team to that maybe I could make a few dollars to help me. I have written to them directly several times and they never responded at all! I do not know the age or what type of people they are, but, by their treatment of me I would say the are a bunch of spoiled, selfish, uncaring, bites the hand that feeds them and sadly it is the users out there that are losing out of major converting processes that I have from OS 9 and lower that they could incorporate into the program. My help has gone thankless and they purposely leave out the fact about MacWrite docs. This a good program, but I have the material to make it great. End of Line...

I like this app a lot. It's simple and effective. But HOW do you upgrade? There's no check in the app, and no upgrade link on their website. I have a registered copy of v3.3.3, it's now at 3.3.9. I downloaded it and it says UnRegistered, with no way to enter my registration details. Seems my only option is to buy again at full price. I'm damned if I want to pay the full price for a point.point release. TBH, I don't really want to pay anything extra for bug fixes and compatibility updates.

This is sort of a review and comment. The program itself is excellent and very easy to use and has great potential. But, communication with the writers is non existence at all. For some reason they have left off a feature that older Mac users would crave for. Restoring old MacWrite files that looks like console icons into RTF. I know, because I gave them the material to do it. I even gave them very old sound bytes from pre OS X to see if they could work the same magic and to a degree they did it to a point where it could then be pulled into an audio program to finish the job. I gave them all this material and I got not a thank you or even a serial number for my help. I wrote them a few days ago telling them how angry I was and told them I had more material to help evolve this software and they still have not responded. I will not lie with the material I have I felt I deserved a piece of the pie. I am very ill, cannot work and have little or no income and yet they have yet to respond. They have a great program that I helped to revive MacWrite docs and pre OSX sound bytes to work with as well. Yet they do not admit it in their description or updates. As some of you know I am a Professional writer and I have a ton of articles that up to now were unrecoverable. So far I revived almost 50 article but one at a time because they will not give me a serial number for my work that I did voluntarily with out asking. I did because I saw the potential in the program and still do and can still be a major player for them. Yet all I get is silence. Well, if you do have MacWrite files you have saves and wished to revive them to RTF you can do it with AC. You will get a little noise at the top and bottom that is easy to remove but your document will still retain the formatting believe it or not. I rate it at 100% recovery except for the noise. So unless these people learn how to communicate with the hand that feeds then and with all else, this program could die due to it and that would be a total shame. End of Line...

For the combined app usefulness ( that i can convert between docx, xhtml webarchive ) and the Dev's speedy response time is the reason I am giving it a 5 star. I would only like them to add perhaps a video encoding converter to the existing features, but that's another story.

OK guys, I wrote directly to you over the weekend and got no reply so I will also place what I said in my email here too may then I will get a response: Hi Guys, I used to be a professional reviewer for Mac Utilities and entertainment software and I found what some might might consider minor while other who have used Macs since the 128k Mac would consider a large gap. What you put together is a very well thought out program but, based on your conversion choices for text files indicates to me a certain lack of knowledge of Mac Word Processors. As I said I was writing articles from 1985 to about 2003 for many online and Print magazines and with the on set of OS X my older articles are impossible to open because they are in MacWrite Pro format. Back in OS 9 and 8.6 there was a program that basically did what your does and it did a fantastic job at it, I even used it while we could access classic mode. Your program comes close in the text area but sadly misses the mark. What I need is some thing that can convert MacWrite and MacWrite Pro docs into readable text. The last program to do that was Clarisworks 4.0 and maybe 5.0. I have gone to MacUpdate and VersionTracker and found what looked liked some possibilities but each failed. Yours has the foundation that just needs the right codex needed to do the job. To help you with this in my original email if you decide to pursue this improvement that will make many seasoned mac users applaud. So I hope all this does not fall on deaf ears but instead gives you a challenge to make the Swiss Army Knife we had before OS X. It is killing me that I cannot remember its name. I just wish I could afford to pay for it but I have been out of work for a very long time and bills have to come first over everything else. Please see if you can do the codex so I can get back my original articles that I wrote back in the 80s and early 90s. End of Line... Good Luck Robert Lewis

I have a REGISTERED version of AlienConverter 3.3.4. On downloading and installing this latest version of AlienConverter, (i.e. version 3.3.6), I received the application clearly marked (and identified in the Menu Bar) as UNREGISTERED. I can find absolutely no option to input my previous License Number, nor any information whatsoever as to how to license it. So what is the position ? I have no desire or intention to pay for this application again.

This app looks like it could be very useful, but the demo is so limited that it's impossible to evaluate it properly--most document conversion types are disabled, including all the ones I'm interested in. I hope the developer will consider changing the parameters of the demo version--perhaps allowing all features of the program to be used a limited number of times, or something similar that actually allows evaluation of the app's features.

For the person who said they deserved a free copy because they were unable to upgrade, the developer says they always offer free upgrades, that he doesn't think it's fair to have to pay again...so if you contact him about it, looks like they'll hook you up :) Nifty app if you need frequent file conversions.

If it does everything it says it does and can handle PDF documents as well, it might be a worthwhile little application to have around. Worth considering. I remember when it was first introduced and the developers had to change the name. Seems like they've settled on one that won't irritate the lawyers in Cupertino.

Would really llike to try AlienConverter as it seems fast and complete: but, where does it save the converted files?

Seems comparable to that multi-conversion tool there was back in OS 9... can't remember it's name right now... very useful though! Can I win it?:D I'm a student :D

yes what withtlc said. I did get the demo downloaded after my comment and after all it is not very good. Demo is very restricted plus on the website it says that it is floatware and you pay how ever much you think its worth but it only has a $19 buy now button that goes to paypal plus if you want a customised license then your have to pay $29 bucks, so much for floatware.

Continued comment... Demo is too restrictive... XML was not openable via .plist editor, HTML and WORD output not available for eval, There is NO online help, Prior reviews probably based upon it being freeware or donateware... For $19 (not counting today's special) - you are better off with GIMP.. Text to voice conversion is built into the Mac.. Does not process .xls files and there is no diagnostic saying it won't. Really hard to evaluate when most of its functionality is turned off in the eval copy.

Have tried out briefly.. It appears that HTML and Word Output are disabled in the eval.. It does however extract text from a lot of types of documents... I believe it is running the Unix strings command on the file passed to it.. Great sound effects when you add files to the batch. Seems to be really quick on PDF to text (if you ever waited on Reader to do this... it is slow).. Overall probably worth the investment... wonder if it is Word 2007 compatible on the output..?
