I'm very disappointed that its "Convert" does not work -- I want my money back!!! It also becomes unresponsive (hangs) when doing various things, such as .7z archives and Convert. It is slower than Keka at .7z archiving and also has fewer options. I also do not like how it requires a window showing the archive open which can take some time even when you only care about drag & drop compression & extraction. I recommend Keka, which is free, instead.

I love this program, just wanted to alert people that want/need to create RAR files, iPack can't do this out of the box (although from the description it looks like it can). You still need RARLABs rar binary for OSX, which sells at US$30

Why not make it easier to extract the archive to the folder it's in? An option to double click on it and it extracts automatically or something. Now you have to open the program and drag it on the drop basket

iPack is designed as a manager instead of an extractor. I have planned a feature which allows you Cmd+Double Click in Finder to quick-extract the archive to the folder it is in.

haha this is great, out of my own experience i feel obligated to admonish that this application is entirely identical to the other version created by the developer, "ipackr." I had been perplexed as to what the differences of the two were while I was searching for a simple gui for compression rather than using command line, and until recently when the application was released free for a limited time, I was still left without answers. It wasn't until I had both applications open in a double pane view when I realized the extent of their similarity. In conclusion, the application gets the job done efficiently, however, I feel consumers should should be more aware of how the applications are distinguished in more extensive detail

Thank you for your comments. iPackr is the freeware edition of iPack, and it lacks the support for password-protected archives.

In my initial designs, the difference is obvious, but Apple reviewers rejected it, and again and again, until they didn't see any prompts which let you know the difference.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

i tried the free version just to see how it is and it is really pretty good, couple of small bugs, but doesn't really do anything that izip can't do faster, regarding compressing and uncompressing, worth the price though i suppose

Would you please kindly tell me what bugs have you encountered and, if possible, how to reproduce them? I do think I am a quick bug fixer.

i remember one of them, the other was prbly too insignificant:
when adding an item to an existing archive then closing, asks if i want to save, click yes, changes were not actually saved, had to go "menu->save" before closing for it to actually save

oh yeah, i remembered the second one:
it automatically changed all my zip files to open with ipackr as soon as i opened one zip file with it, even though i never told it to

Thank you very much Trance. I believe that the first bug you've mentioned has been fixed. The fix will be included in iPack 1.50 and iPackr 1.02.

Compression utilities are things that should be able to be demo'd
prior to purchase. There are dozens available and everyone has different taste as far as what they like about each one. Speed, interface, and preferences vary considerably. So to expect people to plop down money without a chance to take it out for a test drive is unreasonable.

Thank you for the advice. I am planning to release a free lite version with some limitations.
