I don't know what version of this software the other reviewers were using, but this application did not work as advertised -- it failed to convert the one KML file I gave it. The console log stated that it was converting ... and then nothing happened. The interface was not intuitive. I had expectations, as an experienced software engineer, of how a file converter should be put together and this violated the Principle of Least Astonishment straightaway. I'd like to point a converter at a file and have it converted; I do not want to have to have it observe a directory for any new files. This adds an annoying and unnecessary step in the conversion process. I suppose this might be good for doing mass conversions, but not for one off conversions, which is the likeliest use case. And having it do a "configure" before use is just silly. If some complex set up is required, then the application should walk you through that before dropping you into the main application. And for something this simple I cannot envision the need for this type of complex setup.
