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.

Big download then prompted to pay and then crashed on Catalina. What gives?! Found a free unzipper instead that works great.

Should've paid attention to fwilkinson's review. Over 200mb. Expensive, clunky, slow. Tried to install other products. Crashed. Please stop bringing Windows crapware to Mac!

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.

I'll take your word for it but now I'm worried that I installed this. Can someone recommend a good anti-spyware to get rid of this? Quick Google on XCodeGhost and wow must be outsourcing to china yet trying to charge us premium at like $60? Ridiculous!

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.

Four years later I'm still using BetterZip. It's still better.
