This application still has the potential to be the best and fastest audiobook converter around, but it is still a hit-and-miss affair. I was just about to put in a good rating, but there is now a new issue. Audible has stopped splitting up books into smaller files, and it seems the application can't cope with single big files. Tried to convert an audiobook of 25 hours that consisted of a single big file, and the application only saw 2.5 hours of the entire book...

JAN 2014:

I just noticed the same thing when using the trial/demo version. My single-file download of The Stand comes in at +47hrs / 1.37GB as reported in iTunes. Yet OAC app shows The Stand as 23hr 19m long. Same for another title The Company which is 32hr 16m long yet this shows 17h 07 m.

Anyway decided to purchase for $10 in a bundle with 8 other Ondesoft apps and will give it a try. My hunch is that it will work fine for the smaller books and multi-part downloads of longer books.

I have also have a 9h 43m book in my library which the OAC app shows correctly as 9h 43m. Audible offers this as two multi-part files OR the newer single DOWNLOAD option. I chose the single DOWNLOAD option and got a single .aax file of 278mb containing both parts of the book.

At present my workflow for un-DRM-ing my Audible books is to do it by real-time playback using Audio Hijack Pro. It works well and gives quality results. But takes a loooong time by definition.

So if the worse thing this app does is give me the same quality .mp3 output at 12-16x the speed, but the trade off is for longer books I have to process multiple files - then it's probably a win. OAC app supports batch/queue processing. Then I can always "glue" them back together in Fission into a single file afterwards. And still be hours and hours and hours ahead on the deal.

Will report back by findings...

Not a gorgeous product by any means, but it seems to work pretty well. However, its way too expensive. Needs to be in the $10-$15 range for me to be interested.

Latest bug fix has not sorted out the problem where the app will only randomly start converting an hour or so into the file. Unusable.

Unfortunately, this is still the case. The convertor does not always record the entire file, and often cuts off the beginning. Not reliably usable until it is fixed.
