iZip is the easiest way to manage .ZIP, .ZIPX and .RAR archives on your Mac, and best of all it's completely free! When you open an archive with iZip it appears as a removable disk. This allows management of your files right inside the OS X Finder, all view modes including cover-flow just work. For extra security iZip supports up to 256 bit AES zip encryption.

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 ...

Hi Trance, just letting you know this was addressed in the 1.1.4 update - if you have the "Notify me of updates" preference enabled you should've got it in the last couple of days. If not then please grab the latest from here. Thanks.

iZip is one ofthe VERY few Mac programs that support .ZIPX files. (The Unarchiver does NOT support ZIPX).

So if you have ZIPX files, you will want to try this free program.
