Pages Converter 0.6

A lightweight and portable application for converting XML to TXT in just a few steps and with minimum effort. Does not require user experience
Pages Converter is a tiny and portable tool that enables users to rapidly create plain text documents (TXT format) from XML files, in just a few steps.

The interface of the app is not impressive in any way, as the single window has a minimalistic layout and limited options. However, this can be an upside for first-time users who aren't looking for a feature-rich application to perform such a simple conversion task.

Loading XML files into the workspace is done using only the file browser, since the drag-and-drop functionality is not supported. Batch processing is permitted, so you can import as many items as you want to process simultaneously. However, you can insert a multi-file selection, but only individual items.

As we have mentioned before, Pages Converter doesn't sport many options or configurable settings. For instance, you cannot change the default output destination and file name; all converted items are automatically saved to the same directory as the original file, bearing a default file name.

The application is very light on the system resources, using a minimum quantity of CPU and system memory, hence sparing the computer of resource hogging. It has a good response time to commands and carries out a conversion job rapidly.

On the other hand, Pages Converter has several downsides, which is probably due to the fact that it has not been updated for a very long time. For example, it cannot convert certain characters to text and leaves blank spaces instead. Plus, it popped up an error on multiple occasions midway through our evaluation, preventing us from completing the encoding task, although we have tested its capabilities on newer and older Windows platforms alike.

All in all, Pages Converter could really use some stability improvements as well as the integration of additional features, whether they are minor but convenient (e.g. drag-and-drop), or more advanced (e.g. conversion configuration), to please the entire audience.
