    "I'd prefer a converter that doesn't force you to download anything, especially not a paid one for $25 when you can get tons of free converters that do everything Epubor wants you to do. It looks useful, but not like anything I would personally use."

    "Oh, this is a resource that every person who owns a computer and sends a file should have. Students, businesses, schools. You can take your file, upload it, pick the output format and it will change the file for you. This solves so many problems when trying to share a file you need and it is in the wrong format. "

    "Amazing digital library. I loved it, simply the best way of organizing digital readables. It follows the Apple philosophy of file-keeping; it all just works. There's some functionality with cloud stuff, I guess, but all I know is that you drag a file to the open window, it syncs to the library, and you're set. "

    "I downloaded Epubsoft toolbox thinking that I would be able to use it to convert pdf to different formats. Thankfully I started with the free trial instead of the paid version. The only thing I have been able to convert pdf's to is kindle format, which is not what I was looking for. It is great if you are looking to convert different ebook formats though. "

    "I probably wouldn't buy this, but I think that it fulfills a need for sure. Sometimes PDF files are a little bit hard to read because you can't change the formatting or font size, so being able to convert them to different file types that you can change is a nice thing to be able to do."
