    "TuneClone is a very clever program and quickly converted my Mac iTunes files. Very helpful to output my purchased music content to Amazon Cloud for use across my devices."

    "I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. I had 1500+ songs and would have taken over 100 CD's and countless hours with a traditional Burn & Rip method. Thank you for a simple software solution. I can now use these songs on my phone and other personal uses. I am one very happy customer. I've already posted on my Facebook page how simple and great this software worked for me."
