AP3 file format is a VS10XX VSOS App from Asprova – an APS (Advanced Planning and Scheduling) system for Microsoft Windows OS. In short, it saves the scheduling project created via Asprova. Naturally, other apps can use files with .ap3 extensions. Just be cautious with AP3 data from unknown sources.
APE (Monkey’s Audio) is a lossless audio file format released in 2000 by Matthew T. Ashland. Because it’s a lossless sound format, it doesn’t lose data during compression, unlike other standard formats like AAC, MP3, and Vorbis. However, Monkey’s Audio is available on PC only. To play APE on Mac OS X and Linux, you’ll need a third-party plugin like JRiver Media Center.
