Apps

What will you build?

Hundreds of developers are already using the Zamzar API to power their file conversion apps. Below are a handful of our favourite open-source apps that use our API. If you have an app you would like us to feature, feel free to tell us about it.

  • Dropbox Converter (C#)

    by Michael Walsh

    Enhance your Dropbox with the ability to automatically convert files with the Dropbox Converter. Specify your desired conversions (e.g., "docx to pdf") in a JSON configuration file, then simply add files to your Dropbox. The converted files will be stored back in your Dropbox.

  • Hot Folders (Python)

    by Joe Anderson

    Hot Folders monitors file system paths, automatically converting new files according to your preferences (specified in a JSON configuration file). We like setting our web browser's "downloads" folder as a Hot Folder that converts RAR and 7Z archives to ZIP format.

  • Zamzar Bash

    by Zamzar

    Harness the power of the Zamzar API in your terminal, using Zamzar Bash. This script adds the zamzar command to your UNIX toolkit, allowing you to write shell scripts to automate all of your file conversion needs. Convert directly from the command line.
