05 August 2019

Mac edition of established compression utility.

Overview

WinZip now lets you access key features more easily, share links to files in the cloud, and zip and protect with confidence:

  • Zip and unzip files instantly with WinZip’s trusted compression
  • Protect files with strong AES encryption
  • Share directly to iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Google Drive and ZipShare, from within WinZip
  • Successfully email large files and minimize storage needs
New in 5
  • Easily share links to files in the cloud - WinZip Mac 5 automatically generates a link when you upload your zip file to a cloud service. The link is placed in your clipboard so you can easily paste it into other apps, such as Skype, for quick sharing.
  • Apply to all files in your Zip - Resize images in a Zip file without having to manually unzip and then zip them back up.
  • Resize images - Resize images any time you create a Zip file, not just when emailing.
  • More resize options - Choose from two additional options for resizing images: X-Large (1920 x 1536) and XX-Large (2880 x 2304).
  • Actions pane - Easily access frequently used features, including encryption, image resizing, link sharing and zip actions, on this new context-sensitive pane. Show or hide the Actions pane as needed with the new toolbar button.
  • Quick Action button - Use this menu on the Zip pane selection bar for fast access to many actions, including Unzip, Rename, Delete, Get Info and Quick Look.
  • Preserve the View type - During the Save process, WinZip Mac now saves the currently selected view type before saving the Zip file and then restores the view type when it re-opens the Zip file. This prevents the view type from changing during a Save if the current type does not match the default type.
  • .app file display - To simplify unzipping .app files in a Zip, they are now displayed as a file in the view instead of as a folder.
  • Default SaveLast Access Locations - A "New file location" default is used when saving a new Zip file. There is also a last accessed location to use as the default when requesting a location that is "from this Mac" or "to this Mac". And there is a last accessed location used as the default when requesting a location that is "from the iCloud Drive" or "to iCloud Drive".
  • Re-use password - Additional encrypted files are added to a Zip of encrypted files using the same password, rather than requesting an additional password. Password re-use is available for the length of that Zip session.
  • Check your password - Select the new "Show Password" checkbox to view your password and ensure it is entered correctly.
  • Apply to all files in the Zip - Encrypt files in an existing Zip without having to manually unzip them and then zip them back up with encryption enabled.

No need for this over priced piece of bantha excrement. There are many free alternatives available including Betterzip The Unarchiver and so on. I made the mistake of installing the win version on a pc and after the trial ran out it began constant nags and annoyances -which continue to this day even AFTER uninstalling it. So nice that they bury nagware that is not removed when the program is uninstalled and someday I'll have to spend time researching how to remove the garbage. So, like on South Park when the Yo Gabba Gabbaites told Foofa about showing her 'strange' on TV -Don't Do it!

Winzip works great but it forgets you purchased it. I have had to purchase it more than once and there are plenty of options for this product so why bother with the hassle.

This really is a frustrating piece of software. It is very picky about the kinds of files it will recognize. For example, I sometimes want to edit or pull an image from a cbr file and the easiest way to do this (that I know of) is to append the .zip extension to the file and open it up. Entropy does this without a problem Unarchiver (I think that's what it's called) did too (when I last used it). Winzip gives me errors. It also doesn't like numbered archives. I found some ancient (by web standards!) files that ended with a sequential number string (xxxxx.0001, xxxxx.0002 etc) and wanted to know what they were. Winzip volunteered to open them (it has a habit of doing this without asking) but couldn't. Entropy, again, opened them no problems (turns out it was an archive of old TV shows BTW). Entropy was last updated in 2013 and still blows Winzip out of the water. Now, the thing that really irritates me about WinZip is the number of steps required to open an archive in the first place! I can't choose a default place or way to open an archive, so when I want to open an archive I have to click the "unzip" icon, then choose from a list of services that I want to open the archive on my mac, then choose the location on my mac where I want to open the archive, then open the archive. So annoying! I was going to rate this two stars, but because the developers want $30 for something of this quality, I think one star is fair.

Oh dear. Now they release a version 5. I'd strongly recommend that people avoid Winzip for Mac. I can't remember how long I had V4 installed -- quite a long time -- and I do not recall one update. This is what I'd call hit-and-run software.

Very buggy on 10.10.5. Furthermore, now there's the XCodeGhost spyware problem. WinZip for iOS was coded using a spyware infested Xcode. So it's possible that the OS X version is infested as well. I don't know how probable that is, and I don't know if the spyware can also run on OS X, and not only on iOS, but I suggest everyone stay away from WinZip until we know more.

Just doesn't work with Yosemite 10.10.4. It falls into an infinite loop due to the use of setShowSplitter which is a deprecated function.

They could at least change the name of the software... If you really need something more than system built-in tools (i.e. for RAR files, 7ZIP, segmented files, password protected archives etc.) then the BetterZIP is simply the best. And I am not developer of BetterZIP. I have just checked and it turned out that I purchased my first copy/version of BetterZIP in late 2007 !!! And it never let me down.

If you need only to open ZIP files, then the built-in ZIP capabilities of OS X will suffice. WinZIP lets you view the contents of a ZIP archive, delete individual items (like the invisibles that drive Windows users crazy) and quickview items (oddly with a button, rather than using the spacebar). There are newer ZIP formats that OS X can't open that WinZIP handles flawlessly. The only thing I found that it can't do is let you rename files within an archive.

I just tried BetterZip and, wow! Image preview is automatic, and you CAN rename the contents. So far it looks like a much better program than WinZip.

The "product" they're selling here is available in so many other products for far less. A Mac-aware version comes with the MacOS which won't litter your zip files with dot or resource files. And the company just won't take "unsubscribe" for an answer. So I've taken to reporting their marketing emails after my unsubscribe request to their ISP as SPAM. Don't bother with this product or company unless you need to be sure that the zip files you create are 1000% compatible with windows. I've never had a problem with the free or native alternatives already available on MacOS.

Compression is already build into the mac, and if you want the best archiver on the mac, it's already free and called the unarchiver. It's what 7 zip is on the PC. Winzip was bad on the pc and now they're taking it over to the mac. Ug.

Are you speaking as an expert, or are you just perpetuating Mac vs Windows in-fighting? Your comment that "compression is already built into the Mac" is correct, but misleading, for you imply compatibility between a file compressed by the built-in File > Compress function on a Mac with a zip file created, or opened, in Windows. If you do a Google search, you will find a lot of evidence to the contrary, with no one that I see writing a correct, comprehensive answer to the problem. Case in point. Yesterday I sent a file that I zipped on my Mac to several Windows users. None of them can open the file. Although my file appropriately ends with a .zip extension, that does not by itself mean that Windows--for some reason not clearly understood or fully explained in my so far cursory Google search for an answer--can open that file. Some people speculate that the incompatibility is due to the fact that the Mac saves files with resource forks which Windows has no clue how to handle, so it considers an archived file zipped on a Mac as "corrupt." I seek a definite answer to the problem, along with a solution. I want to be able to archive a file on a Mac into a zip archive, or into a Stuffit archive, and I want to have a guarantee that an unsophisticated Windows user can open that archive without having to install any additional software or their end, else they will balk at the idea of installing any additional application that they are unfamiliar with, no matter how "good" it may be for them to have it on their computer. I read about "unarchiver" so I went to their website to check it out. No where does it say that it can create an archive on a Mac that can be sent to a Windows user and opened on the Windows end. All of the features I read promoted unarchiver to do exactly what it says: open up a variety of archived files that a Mac user receives. But no mention was made of being able to create an archive that will compatible on the other end. That's the function I want. So, if this program can do that, if this program can guarantee me that I can compress a number of individual files into an archive that Windows users can open up and access, then it is worth getting over the built-in Mac compression feature, which, most likely due to a "bug" or other incompatibility on the Windows side, cannot accomplish. If anyone can address this issue, chime into the conversation. In the meantime, I will be checking out this application to see if it gives me what I want. If it works, fine and dandy. If not, then somebody what the solution is.

@Mac Os X 4ever, Thanks for the tip about Keka, Since I first posted my remarks, I did buy WinZip both for archiving and for opening up zipped files. So far, it works quite well on the Mac platform: I have had no problems with it at all.

You've been a free-loading Member of MacUpdate for exactly one day, during which; you wrote several negative comments that are shorter than tweets and indicate you have no CAPS key and no understanding of grammar. Do you even know what a complete sentence is?

Lacking discipline, wisdom, and education, you don't know how to make a case to back up your pejorative judgements, indicating an extremely irrational, incompetent, and lazy character.

You have a zero score, which indicates that no one likes your comments, for you are not making a contribution to the community.

Yet, you think you are entitled to be a troll whose presence, once you leave, won't be missed at all.

What entitles you to be so ignorant, other than maybe you didn't graduate high school yet, and are therefore both young and stupid?

I suggest that you get with the program here, or get lost.
