Our life is getting more and more mobile. Thus, it’s important that all kinds of things are able to be done while you are on the road. This counts for file conversion as well. Online-Convert.com has always put the focus on making the online service available for mobile devices as well. Yet, there was room for improvement. First, we released our Android mobile app, and now, we can present the Online-Convert
File Conversion App
In this article, you will find all information about our brand new iOS app, how to use it, how you can convert files and what else it has in store for you!
File Conversion Mobile Ap
The iOS app provides you with the same features you already know from the Online-Convert.com website:
- 200+ input files are supported
- Convert them into the most popular files from different categories
- Cross-conversion like from video to audio or video to presentation
- Intuitive and easy handling
- Stable & reliable servers and performance
- Conversions with a high success rate
Now, it’s time to have a closer look at the app.
After downloading the mobile app from the iTunes App Store, you can find it in your phone menu. You will recognize it by the distinct green Online-Convert.com icon.
The welcome screen that will appear once you open the app for the first time – or after you cleared your conversion history – already provides you with a lot of information. Furthermore, you are presented with a list of all converters available.
The menu will open when swiping right, not only from the home screen but from anywhere in the app. It provides you with links to the Home screen, FAQ or the share the app page.
After starting your conversion or several conversions, they will be displayed on this page as well, grouped by their status:

Uploading the file you want to convert is as easy as it is intuitive. Simply tap on the according button on the bottom of the screen. There are several ways to upload a file: uploading it from the device, using a QR code, taking a picture, recording an audio or video file or provide an URL. Afterwards, select the format you want to convert your file to. This can still be changed as long as the conversation didn’t start. Plus, you can choose different conversion options like OCR for documents, codecs for videos, and more. After everything is set, click on the “Start the Conversion” button.
Your upload might take a little while, depending on the file’s size. You can always choose to “Convert in background” and revisit the app and conversion later. The conversion will be processed as long as you have a working internet connection. After disconnecting from the net, your conversion, of course, continues without you having to check it.
Unfortunately, on iOS devices, you are not allowed to directly download files from a third-party app like Online-Convert. Thus, you will have to rely on other apps to save your converted files. Cloud storage like GoogleDrive and Dropbox are a good option for this. Furthermore, you can share your file on other apps such as social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.), messengers (Telegram, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Skype, etc.), image sharing apps (Tumblr, Imgur, etc.) and more.
After saving your file, you can immediately delete it again from our servers. If not, your file is automatically deleted after 10 downloads/shares or 24 hours, whichever comes first.
