Review

The Unarchiver is a program designed for Mac users who wish to have access to more file compressing features than the ones offered by the Mac default Archive Utility app. This application supports a wide variety of archive formats and integrates seamlessly with the Finder tool.

A smart thing to do before working with this app is to configure its compatibility and output settings. You can select which archive file types can be opened with The Unarchiver, choose a destination folder for the extracted files, and much more.

Once you finish selecting the proper application options, you can start creating and extracting archive files. An advantage of The Unarchiver is that the processing speed for both actions is very fast.

As I mentioned on the introduction of this review, the application supports a wide range of archive formats. Among these are popular ones like RAR, ZIP, 7-ZIP, GZ, TAR, ISO, CDI.

To sum things up, The Unarchiver proves to be a smart addition to my collection of programs as it provides plenty of helpful features when dealing with archive files. The application makes it easy to configure settings, communicates well with Mac Finder tool, and comes with no price tag.
