My thanks to The Little App Factory for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed to promote Evom, their brand-new Mac app for video format conversion. I’ve used it Evom several times this week and it’s exactly the app I’ve wanted. I like HandBrake, and I used to use VisualHub before its developer pulled the plug on it, but 99 percent of the time I don’t want to fiddle with detailed conversion options. I just want to convert video for use on devices like my Apple TV or iPhone, and I just want the output to look good without taking up too much space.

That’s exactly how Evom works. Drag-and-drop input, then select a destination device or location, and it just works. And, in addition to converting files on your computer — such as AVIs, WMVs, and MKVs — Evom will also work to archive Flash-based movies from the web to files on your computer. I really like it.
