Review

iZip is a small Mac app that lets you manage archive files of various compression formats, such as ZIP, ZIPX, RAR, TAR, etc. This program offers you an easy way to create and encrypt ZIP files, extract the content of any compressed file, and share your archive files on the files.com website.

This application can be used by any user, novice or professional, as it brings a built-in archive assistant that helps you create your archive files with only a few steps. iZip also provides strong encryption which helps you protect your archive files from prying eyes.

A good thing about working with iZip is that it lets you manage the content of an archive without having to extract its files. When working with iZip, opening an archive file is more like managing the contents of a removable storage: you can play videos without extracting them, copy a new file into the archive using drag-and-drop action, etc.

The program comes with an important disadvantage: it offers you only two output formats when it comes to creating archive files (ZIP and ZIPX). iZip supports formats like RAR, TAR, 7ZIP, and TAR.GZ for tasks such as file extraction or managing content using Mac Finder (drag-and-drop files between archives, extract only one or two files from an entire archive, etc.).

If the aforementioned flaw isn't relevant to you, you should give this program a try. iZip brings a very simple way to manage the contents of archives, provides powerful encryption, and you don't have to pay to use it.
