Integrates with Finder. Archives appear as removable disks. Genius! @cmyzxqkzink, no malware and it does not 'require sign in'.

Contains also iBoostUp.app, a potentially unwanted software!

Does it? I clicked the "clean you mac" button and it just prompted me with a text explaining iBoostUp.app (by the makers of iZip) . I clicked cancel and nothing happened. Nothing else was installed.

No potentially unwanted software, did you download it from macupdate or izip.com?

Just finished testing it with on text file. It has a number of nice features but also an issue. I tested it by doing a simple, no frills or options compression of a simple log (text) file. No issues compressing with iZip but unfortunately the default MOS tool (Archive Utility) could not expand it, but instead generated an error. I had to use iZip or UnArchiver to expand it. This could be an issue when you are sharing zipped files with someone does not have such a 3rd party option, but is just using the MOS default option for expansion.

Another possible issue: Right now the utility is free and no plans are indicated for that to change. But should it transform into a fee based app, you might somewhere down the road have to effectively pay a ransom to uncompress your files, especially if you utilize some of the advanced optional features such as password protection and advanced compression.

- hidden bugs while extracting archives. apps and files are corrupt but still working until some point. it takes me hours to point this out :-( i always thinking some apps are with errors, but the errors coming from izip. (this apps not working if i unzip it with izip ShortCataApp, GitHub Mac App, RapidWeaver) - NO answer from izip to my 3 bugreports to the support email CONCLUSION: do not use this program because of the hidden bugs!

(why? i dont like the default unarchive from OSX which spit out all files in the current directory - usualiy my download folder) CONS: - hidden bugs while extracting archives. apps and files are corrupt but still working until some point. it takes me hours to point this out :-( i always thinking some apps are with errors, but the errors coming from izip. (this apps not working if i unzip it with izip ShortCataApp, GitHub Mac App, RapidWeaver) - NO answer from izip to my 3 bugreports to the support email CONCLUSION: do not use this program because of the bugs! PS: i still search a similar app where i can mount my archives as drives

Keka supports more compression formats, does it with style, is free too, .. Do we really need another (un)compression tool? Nope
