Go to app for opening archives. Handles everything I throw at it and loading as a virtual drive is a nice bonus.

Very very handy. Zip files show up in Finder like a removable USB stick and all files operations update the zip.

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

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!

PRO: - nice, because i like that are the archives are visible as drives. (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

Avoid this program like the plague! There are plenty of good, free applications which can open zip files. This one crashes constantly (I'm running it on a brand new macbook pro which never crashes with anything else) and is totally unreliable. Additionally, the way that it converts all zip files into a "drive" on your desktop is really inconvenient. I've been using it for about a month, and after this final crash, I've decided to remove the program and switch to something that actually works!

Tried to open a password protected RAR file, iZip needed to connect to GoogleCode for MacFuse and then crashed. Subsequent re-launches resulted in an immediate crash, had to delete.

Since i saw no mention of a solution to this behavior i mentioned before :"stores log file in the prefs file and no way to disable ", i thought i would just try it to see if anything has been changed but it wants to install "a component" before it can run ......it doesn't tell you what component, which makes it sound suspicious, so i checked the package and assume that the mysterious 'component' it wants to install is 'MacFuse' .....which i already have installed the latest version ...so why would i want it installed again? ....and why does the app not see that it is already installed? Too much strange behaviour with this app for me. I'll pass thanks.

After starting iZip it states that some missing sofware needs to be installed, but never will. Hence the half-star-rating, since I could not test the product ...
