Treat Zip files like folders.

Overview

Zipster makes life with Zip archives better. Ever been envious of the way Windows users can just browse into Zip files, copy files in and out of them with ease and all without running a Zip utility? With Zipster, your Zip files are just like another folder in Finder. And, even better than Windows, you can open files and save into them from any application.

  • Zipster is fast; writes and compression are done in the background so you can get on with your work. And we’ve done a bit of work to make reading snappy too.
  • No more pesky .DS_Store files--your friends on other platforms won’t be complaining any more!
  • Zipster works great with JAR, WAR, ipa, and apk files.

Just so everyone is aware, there is presently a bug in OS X Mavericks (OS X 10.9 13A598/13A603) that sometimes causes a kernel panic when ejecting zip files from Zipster. Having investigated it ourselves, sadly we don’t think it’s something we can work around in Zipster. To be clear: this is a bug IN MAC OS X ITSELF, not in Zipster (which doesn't even contain any kernel code), and we’ve reported it to Apple in the hope that they’ll fix it soon.

It is a free utility and that is much appreciated. There are some bugs that are annoying but it is useful overall. In particular, when opening a zip file, Zipster closes the folder that contains the zip file. Very annoying and disorienting. This forces you to have to open the folder that contains the folder that contains the zip file before opening the zip file... to allow you to maintain your context in the finder after hipster changes it. A new one that I found today is where a zip file contains folders and you create a new one, then try and move an old one into the new. A dialog opens telling you that whatever you are moving is already in the empty target folder. Overall, this idea is good but the implementation suffers a bit. I keep it in spite of the bugs and owning BetterZip because "less is more" but the first bug is why I only use it on occasion.

Didn't work for me. After installing it and allowing it to make itself the default app for ZIP files, I clicked on a ZIP file and it simply expanded instead of opening like a Finder folder as promised. (System 2010 Mac Pro, OS X 10.8.5, enough RAM and disk space to kill a horse.)
