Ease of Use
A blue interface with three easy steps neatly arranged in plain view. Everything is so straightforward that an average user won't need to peek into the help file not even once. There are three possibilities for importing the DVD-Video into iFunia and these cover loading it from the DVD disk(automatically load and display the movie name if you insert DVD disk before running the program), from a specific folder or import IFO files.
Working with the output formats is easy as you benefit from a set of predefined iPhone profiles that do not leave room for error. And given that you can set ouput parameters for resolution, frame rate, kbps (for both video and audio) as well as the audio sample rate (I wouldn't recommend that as the default choices are properly balanced for a great result).
Once the DVD is loaded iFunia DVD to iPhone Converter for Mac will show all the chapters and titles available and let you decide on what to select for ripping. Among the benefits of the software there is the fact that it lets you choose the subtitle (if available) and audio track (if there is more than one).
In the right hand part there is a video player that can play the selected chapter or title of the movie. The basic controls it features include only stop, play and pause, but the progress bar doubles as a seek bar so it is easy to find a specific scene or part of the video. Taking snapshots is part of the embedded video player's options offering a choice for two picture formats to save it into: BMP or JPG.
What iFunia DVD to iPhone Converter for Mac can do for your DVD-hungry self is not limited simply to ripping DVD to the iPhone-playable one. The app can also help you trim down the movies and convert only what you deem most interesting as well as cropping video to remove black bars of the movie.

Video quality in the output file is just great. The list of editing options is not expansive but gives the possibility to adjust brightness, contrast volume of the movie as well as crop the image and trim the video to your favorite scene.
