Horribly Buggy depending on size and file type. Overloads Mac w/ memory spikes!

This app works fine for small files but for big files and certain compression formats it will freeze up or just crash after uncompressing just afew small files. Especially on 7zip files. iZip is HORRIBLE at uncompressing 7zip files. It will literally take 1+ hours to uncompress a small 7zip file that would take other programs 10-30 seconds….and i’m running a i7 quad core Mac with a 750GB Samsung SSD and 16gb of RAM! I produce entire songs on my Mac and iZip struggle to uncompress a 20mb 7zip file?! Use this program if you want to….but there are much better free programs out there for this. Literally just downloaded Unarchiver off the Mac app store to give it a try. Been using iZip for almost a year without questioning all the problems. Can’t believe how much better Unarchiver is. What freezes iZip, or would take an entire day to uncompress, took only 5 minutes on my Mac with Unarchiver. Thats how buggy and how bad iZip utilizes the power of your Mac.

Quick If you know what you are doing

I was looking for around for a program to unzip rar files for brushes to use in photoshop. I found this gave it a go an had my brushes in 5 minutes.

When it opens close the archive window. Click open and go look for your rar file. It'll open 2 windows. Pick the one with the most files as that's usually the contents instead of the folder. Just drag and drop it out of the window to the location you want and wallah!

Good but some problems

Hello. The app iZip in itself is good. But it needs some patches improvement yadda yadda. I like using izip to unzip roms. i then put them on a microsd to use on my son's r4 ds. but sometimes for some of these roms while extracting ghave a message pop up. it goes "ERROR EXTRACTING
An error occured while trying to load or extract one or more files" this results in the rom on the sd having zero bytes of data yet int the orginal zip file it has the correct amount if anyone can answer why this happens or the game patches this problem Izip will receive another five stars.
