Any standard zip file is PC compatible,this app is not necessary and definitely not worth one cent. Good try developers! Built into OS X,simply select any file and either with click and select compress file, or control click and select compress file. Im sure ill get a few frown symbols clicked for my honesty. thanks macupdate just trying to help you schmucks out!

Not sure if this app is actually needed. I mean, I create zip files with the default OS X right click 'Compress' and they work fine on PC.

Don't most apps (free or paid) capable of creating archives, these days, have options to exclude resource forks/DS_Store files, or otherwise create "Windows-friendly" archives?

Sure looks a lot like the WinZip logo, makes me wonder if WinZip Computing and Corel know about this?

As a creator of a competiting application I can't express my opinion about this app or rate it because it's gonna be wrong, but I think it's too expensive for what it's doing. Maybe you should reconsider the price until you implement more features. That's just a friendly suggestion. Wish you good luck with the project.

u have to admire the moxie and eternal optimism of someone who expects to sell an app that just zips files without .ds_store and other invisible mac files, for $14

totally unnecessary! simply select the file/files/folder of files you want to compress and control click,select compress files,wait till its finished and wallah! a perfectly compatible zip file,that will unzip with ANY utility program in mac or windows with the resulting file/files/folder exactly as it should be. if the windows user is having trouble opening the files,he probably doesn't know how open them correctly to begin with,or doesn't have a proper application that can translate them to open them correctly,but as for the zip file itself,it will ALWAYS unzip correctly. No need for this $14.00 program.Built in feature for mac's since 2002 or mac os x 10.0-10.6 snow leopard.

It's hilarious how the mac users are expected to cater to the incompetent windows users. This for example, or anti-virus programs. Yeah, I'm gonna spend money to protect windows computers from MY computer. I wont see any harm done without the antivirus software but since the PC user I'm sending the file to doesn't have the intelligence to switch to a mac, I am told that I "need" a virus scanner to protect the PC users. HAH! I'm not really bashing this program per say, since I have yet to try it but just the whole "windows-friendly" genre.

You can do the same for free with "YemuZip" if you choose "PC compatible". Or you can simply create the zip archive with the built in right click method and then drag & drop the zip file on the free "ZipCleaner" program afterwards. (YemuZip and ZipCleaner are free and both can be found on MacUpdate or your favourite search engine) If you spend more money (ranging from $5 to $15 more), then you can buy a fully loaded compression program like "BetterZip" which can do the same as "Zip Mac Files for PC" and much more, like creating files with other compression methods, deleting files from archives and so on. *** By the way, I send zip files to Linux and Win users and they don't complain about the .DS_Store file and __Mac_OSX folder. Even PC beginners don't complain, they usually realise pretty fast that these things are not relevant for them or they simply ask. :-) .

FOLLERRC - Thanks for your straight-forward input, and good suggestion. I will see if I can change the header with MacUpdate to help people better understand the purpose of this product. Also, you're right - many (skilled) PC users have no problem figuring out how to deal with zip files created on the mac using the right click + create archive feature. Our website even has video instructions to help users use this (free) method if they want. Meanwhile, there are still many, many PC users who would get a zip file created in this way, and be "uh... what?" If you have clients / vendors who fit this profile, and you don't have time to spend educating them on the wonders of a Mac, and why Mac Zip files look this way, then this program can help you out. Also, as mentioned before, many of our customers use automation to process zip files - and their automation is expecting a specific directory structure. Rather than jam their automation, or make them re-write code, we simply cater to their needs by giving them a file that they can use. It's simple.
