Mr. Zipper is a commercial compression and extraction tool. It supports quite a lot of formats. It can extract RAR, 7Z, ISO, CAB, MSI, Zip, Stuffit, Arj, Z, Lzma, Tar, Gzip, Bzip2, EXE, and PAX files and compress the 7Z, Zip, Gzip, Tar, and Bzip2 formats.
Unlike other similar archive applications, Mr. Zipper has a graphical user interface. When you launch the application, a sort of file explorer will be shown. Here you can simply select files to compress them or expand them. You can also put files or folders into DMG images. When you select files and click on "Add", a new window will pop-up asking you the format you want to work with and whether you want to encrypt or split the archive. From the "Advanced" tab, you can also choose the compression used. The default value is "Normal", and there are five other compression options.
From the file explorer, you can preview files inside an archive or files on your Mac.
In my time with Mr. Zipper, I didn't experience any problems. I tested expanding and compressing files. I like this application. It is complete and easy to use. However, there are a ton of other free tools out there that work just as well.
- It works well
- Lots of features
