Zip View Pro

By ilia

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Zip View Pro allows you to quickly view the contents of compressed ZIP (.zip), RAR (.rar), 7-Zip (.7z) and JAR (.jar) files (with limited support for .zipx), and uncompress only those files you choose without having to uncompress the entire archive.

You can quickly preview one or more files in the archive (without uncompressing them) by simply pressing the Space key to launch Quick Look, or clicking on the Quick Look icon.

It is a great complement to Finder's built in compress feature.

It supports password protected ZIP, RAR and 7-ZIP files, as well as multi file spanning RAR archives.

Zip View Pro is quick and easy to use. Drag an archive file onto Zip View Pro's dock icon or application window and see the contents of the archive in an instant.

You can easily navigate the contents of the archive by right-clicking the folder navigation bar at the top and selecting the sub-folders or by double-clicking a folder within the archive itself. The path navigation at the top of the window clearly shows where you currently are in archive's hierarchy and you can easily move back through the hierarchy by clicking on any of the navigation items.

Zip View Pro gives you a number of ways to uncompress a file or folder (or the entire archive):

* Clicking the Uncompress Selected or Uncompress Archive button and selecting the folder to uncompress into.
* Drag and dropping the selected items from Zip View Pro into a folder in Finder.
* Double-clicking a file will open it in the default editor for that file type.
* Right-clicking an item to bring up a context menu and selecting the option to uncompress to a folder (or a temporary folder to save you having to delete the folder afterwards).
* Using the Copy menu item (or standard OS X copy menu shortcut) and pasting the selected items into a folder in Finder.

When no items are selected in Zip View Pro the default action is to uncompress the entire archive.

With Zip View Pro you no longer have to uncompress an entire archive to view its contents or to extract only those files that you really want extracted.

Remember you can preview one or more of the files in an archive with a quick press of the Space key or a click of the Quick Look icon.

Zip View Pro's little brother Zip View offers similar functionality but without support for 7-Zip (.7z) archives.

NOTE: Zip View is not able to uncompress zipx files that have been created with proprietary types of compression.

Easy drag and drop unzipping

I have to use encrypted zip files in my work and being able to drag a zipped file into the app and then drag the file out and being prompted to enter the password is so EASY! I love it. Much easier than similar solutions on my Windows 7 machine. Thank you for writing a great app.

Don’t usually write reviews. I felt compelled to; this is terrible.

As a developer, I can’t image the process that went into the UI design of this app, which, oddly enough, would be forgivable if the application actually WORKED. All the archives I’ve checked and confirmed working with other programs don’t work with this one. They are claimed to be “corrupt” by this program. Waste of 5 dollars.
