Keka is a full featured file archiver, as easy as it can be.

With Keka you can compress as many files as you want in a bunch of formats. Divide files and protect them with a password is now a kids game. Just drop the files you want to compress to the Keka icon in the Dock or the main window.

Also Keka can extract lots of compressed files, from Zip and 7z to Rar archives, even parted ones. Just double click on those files and they will be extracted using Keka, or drop them to the icon in the Dock or the main window.

Compression formats supported:
7z, Zip, Tar, Gzip, Bzip2, DMG and ISO

Extraction formats supported:
RAR, 7z, Lzma, xz, Zip, Tar, Gzip, Bzip2, ISO, EXE, CAB, PAX and more

Customer Reviews

It works, I haven’t had any issues with using it for over two years


The best kind of utilities are the ones you don’t even know you have, because they just work. This is exactly one of those. I have used this for over two years and never had any issues, it works with anything I throw at it. No complaints, and I would highly recommend. I got a new laptop and I couldn’t extract rar archives any more, realized I forgot to re-install this app!

Developer Response

Glad to hear that! Thanks for using Keka 😊



Where is the unzip option? This new update is too complicated.

Developer Response

Just drop your files to the Keka icon, to the main window or open them with the contextual menu in the Finder > Open With.

Before today I would have given Keka 6 stars. I hate doing this, but you now get only one star because of a total lack of support. I’ll explain.
When this product works, it is beautiful in its simplicity and speed. Now it has stopped working (due to El Capitan upgrade? Don’t know). When I try to compress, a progress window goes on forever, saying it’s calculating the time remaining. When I inspect the process Keka7z in Activity Monitor it seems to be examining EVERY FILE ON MY DISK. That’s not the worst part. When I clicked on Keka Support here in Apple’s App Store, I followed the path to manual registration on the Forum page. A registration confirmation (anti-spambot) question asks who won the MotoGP this year? It would not accept Rossi or Márquez, and finally kicked me out for too many tries. Because of this idiotic filter I’m unable to reach Keka tech support.

Developer Response

Sorry to hear that. Hope it's not too late for you to give Keka another try. I'm now using the more easy GitHub issues section:
