ZipIt features a complete Mac interface. In version 2.0, the ZipIt interface was completely overhauled. Now easier to use than even before, ZipIt makes file compression fun. Mac OS X users will love the fact that ZipIt runs natively on OS X. ZipIt also takes full advantage of the Aqua user interface.

This was a handy app but sadly it doesn't work with Lion. And the developer's web site seems to be inaccessible.

Hopefully the current StuffIt Zip Archive will work for our PC friends (in the past ZipIt was the only app that successfully worked when sending zip files to PC people).

Guess the ZipIt authors decided not to adapt the program for the newer OS. Shame, it worked well. Fortunately, now, the zip portion of StuffIt works well for my Windows users. Used to be a StuffIt Zip Archive was not able to be opened by them. That's why I had ZipIt - it worked. Too bad it's gone...

Disappointing software.
Often fails when MacZip is always efficient.

It would be really useful if one of the free zip clients on OSX would just support passworded zip archives.

I love ZipIt. No problems, good compression ratio... better than SE when compressing to the "other world"...

i have to disagree. extremely buggy and unreliable. i made the mistake of purchasing multiple copies a while back, and they never get used. Stuffit Deluxe does a better job.

Mac OS X users will love the fact that ZipIt runs natively on OS X. ZipIt also takes full advantage of the Aqua user interface.

A zip archive is any file that ends with the extension '.zip'. The zip format is popular on the IBM, and is widely used as an interplatform compression format. In addition, ZipIt can compress Mac applications and documents without losing any of their data. ZipIt is best used when transferring compressed documents to and from other computer types. Some examples are: text files, TIFF pictures, Excel databases, and QWK message packets, to name just a very few. Note that files that end in '.Z' or '.gz' are not ZipIt files, even though Netscape may give them a ZipIt icon.
