Was free of charge until version 2.4.8 released 2013. The next update was the last update in January 2016 but since then available on App Store $4.99 - what for? I like it and I use it time by time but what justifies $4.99 since there is no real development since 2013 ?

All I need is the ability to ZIP without the hidden .DS_store and __MACOSX showing up for the Windows users. This app is small, simple, and does exactly that.

I tried a couple other apps that have this feature, but they're either expensive, bloated, or don't do the job correctly. This one does.

This is an awesome piece of useful software. I love it. It works, it doesn't demand a lot of attention. I am rating it as a way of thanking the developer. I think I bought it (because I don't see ads) , but if I can't ascertain if I did previously, I'll pay the very low fee, even if it's a 2nd time.

Very useful for staying PC-Compatible without bewildering Windows users with resource files and such. Fast too and I hardly saw the ad that felt relevant too and I hate ads. I might upgrade to the Pay app as it's so nice.

i've used Yemu for a few years now: it's still fabulous, reliable, and i've not had any trouble whatsoever in using Yemu. YellowMug provides regular updates and has quite an array of user friendly products. There's currently a special for Yemu on their site, and gosh, it's worth it. The customer support is so refreshing and prompt! Thanks for the well-earned glowing comments for YellowMug! (And i'd suggest going for the token $4.99, but i'd bought the bundle and have actually used each one ~ and never have they required a fee for updates). Give 'em a try - i hope you enjoy their shareware and freeware! Finally - a company that truly supports the MAC platform! Thanks ~ i learned about them from MacUpdate, and fine forum pals like each of you.

I have been using this for a long time and finally purchased it at the App Store. With this latest version, it appends the file extension twice (….zip.zip). Odd.

Please note that the FREE version is not really free anymore. It appears to be ad-supported. If you do not want adds, you will need to buy it for $4.99 on the App Store.

As a daily user of YellowMug's great EasyCrop app (a massive timesaver!), I'm delighted to have the chance to rave about YemuZip. Recently I had to zip over 80 humongous files (between 1GB and 2GB). OS X's built-in zip compression utility is good, but it's slow and it eats system memory. If you have a lot of really big files to zip, you'll end up with lots of inactive memory (as revealed by Activity Monitor). So, I fired up the free version of YemuZip, which I've used with good results in the past. It did such a superb job that I bought the paid version of YemuZip on purpose...just for the pure selfish pleasure of giving YellowMug my $upport. Oh...and I should mention that YemuZip is very conservative in the amount of system memory it renders inactive after compressing a bunch of files. Thanks, YellowMug, for writing great apps!

As stated before, this little proggie will make your ZIP files look like they need to on a PC. It's great. Drop onto Icon in the Doc, give it a name or accept the default and it's done. I use this on a regular basis and it is fantastic!

I have a number of clients on PCs who get zip files from me regularly. Once I started using YemuZip it was nice to stop getting those emails asking "What are the extra files? Am I missing something?". Now they just get what they need.

Good, simple zip utility for those poor sots that have to work on PC's. The benefit is that most of my clients that I send zipped files (that are on PC's) get confused by the extra files that the Mac OS adds upon archiving. This app keeps the zips clean and easy for them. Thank you.

For compressing and zipping files, I merely select the file, pull down the File menu in Finder, select "Compress (the file) and the Mac OS does the heavy lifting. Now that's pretty simple. Does YemuZip do anything else for me other than costing a shareware fee? For example, does it compress the files any smaller and/or anything else?

If you are tired of programs that try to throw in every feature in the book and are so complicated you have to RTFM to figure out how to use them then this program is for you. It does one thing and it does it very well. And that says it all.
