BetterZip is a powerful compression tool designed to help you create, explore and extract archive files with ease. By using this efficient program, you can reduce storage space on your hard drives and multimedia devices as well as compress large files so that they can fit into an e-mail.

The newest feature of BetterZip which, from my point of view, sets this application apart from other file compression tools, is that it brings an archive password manager. This small utility collects the passwords you assigned to the encrypted archives and saves them in your Mac keychain. This way, whenever you manage a password-protected archive, BetterZip verifies every password from the keychain and puts the correct one to use.

Another great advantage of using this program is that it allows you to perform as many tasks as you want at once and helps you save plenty of time. You can create, explore and extract archive files of various formats and test if they were compressed properly.

If you ask me, this application is an excellent solution for file compression and archive file management. The acquiring price is reasonable and all of your compressed files are highly protected.
