Adapter icon 1500x1500 icon thumb Adapter (Mac) 1.0 is here!!!!!!!!!

We've spent a large part of the last 6 months overhauling Adapter (Mac) to finally take it out of beta. Building a conversion utility that is user friendly, powerful and loaded with features has been one of the biggest challenges for us in the development of Adapter. Between the last release of Adapter (Mac) and this one, we've completely overhauled the user interface about three times and rewrote the vast majority of the back-end code. And now, today, we are happy to introduce to you the ultimate image, audio and video converter.

We've added many new features including time cropping, a crash reporter, custom resolution settings, custom output quailty settings but the crown jewel is the new flash video downloader. Adapter now comes with a an easy to use web browser and anytime it sees a flash video or audio file, it automatically downloads it. You can then right-click the flash file and send it for conversion to an audio or video file which can then be imported to iTunes or sent elsewhere.

This new update of Adapter is loaded with new features and functionality and we believe that it may now well be the best media converter available for Mac. But, with that said, we're not stopping yet so keep checking for updates and keep sending us feedback!

(And, yea. It's still 100% freeware).
