Works very well. Was able to use this to convert Nokia Lumia 1020's .DNG raw files to a format that the current version of Mac OS X and iPhoto can actually use. If your camera is on the list of supported devices, this will probably work for you.

Anyone who is familiar with Photoshop's Batch dialog or other mass-convert utilities will probably get along just fine with the interface. It's not as simple as something developed by Apple, but it gets the job done.

My setup:
Mac OS X 10.9.1
iPhoto 9.5.1
Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update 5.03
Nokia Lumia 1020 running Nokia Black / GDR3
In preferences, set Compatibility to "Camera Raw 4.6 and later" (this was the newest version to work in OSX/iPhoto)

Also, for those who care:
Yes, as Bossa-Nova mentioned, it apparently doesn't save the image preview in a way that OS X can read it with these settings, however it does appear to save a thumbnail, which displays in the Finder and in Spotlight. Spotlight will complain that it can't preview the image but it displays the thumbnail anyway. For my purposes, the thumbnail is good enough, but your mileage may vary.

I did not encounter the bug that Me2 mentioned with regards to a bad creation date in EXIF data. The creation date does change in the Finder (as it should, you're creating a new file when you convert a file) but the EXIF data, including date and time of capture, and camera make & model (and probably other things like ISO though I didn't check) remains unchanged and accurate.

This app gets the job done, and it's awesome that it's free.

However, it doesn't provide any kind of feedback that it's busy - the app just locks up while it is working on calculation. It would be nice to have a progress bar, spinner, or at least a busy cursor to let the user know that something is going on. With big files, it can seem like the app has just crashed.
