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.

This is not free.
And I recommend Keka instead.

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?

The Mac OSX compress archive will add extra hidden files that YemuZip doesn't. Although hidden to a Mac user, a PC user will see those files and complain or question why I added those files. I use this program when sending any compressed file to a PC user.

And, yes, YemuZip is free.

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.

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.

Danger! This program can destroy files without warning!

I was cleaning up some archives of font files. Many were .sit and .sitx and I was changing them to .zip so I wouldn't need stuffit. PC-compatible was selected, and I was getting really good compression. It turns out the compression was so good because YemuZip deleted the resource portion (I'm guessing) of the font files, totally destroying them.

Luckily I do have backups, but be careful what you do!

Uh, you need to read YemuZip's website. You can choose to include or remove resource forks in the prefs.

"The Finder's Archive function makes zip files that contains Mac-specific information that, when extracted on a PC, looks like garbage. YemuZip lets you choose between a PC-compatible format and a Mac format that preserve all the Mac-specific metadata."
