    Which app is, in your opinion, the best one for creating subtitles on the Mac? I have been looking around and couldn't find but outdated apps that didn't do the trick for me. I also tried using iMovie but, while it works for a few subtitles entries here and there, it is not the most suitable tool when it comes to subtitling a full-lenght movie.

    Which apps do you recommend? It seems that there's any on the Mac App Store. All I was able to find there were apps to synchronize or 'edit' subtitles but none to create them.

    Maybe you can check YouTube for how to create subtitles. I am not sure of Closed Captioning is same thing? :apple:

    I check there but there's not so much to be found. I finally decided to purchase an app called "iCaption" in the Mac Store and while it is not perfect or really great it may do the trick for me for now...

    I downloaded and tried Jubler but it gave me nothing but crashes and problems. I reinstalled it several times, looked in Google for answers and find nothing so I uninstalled for good. Maybe it's a great application, but at least of me it didn't work well.

    Thanks for suggesting Miyu, I'll sure check it out if iCaption doesn't work for me after all. I'm just impressed by how many outdated subtitling apps exist on the Mac versus Windows, as I found hell of a lot more subtitling software updated in comparison for the latter.

    I knew them but both those apps cost up to 99$ -or even more- so they are way out of my range. I was looking for something more amateurish and affordable :p .
