Clean and intuitive interface
From BetterZip’s main window you can have quick and easy access to various tools that can help you save an archive, add files or folders to it, delete documents, preview files, extract data, clean and test archives with just a few clicks of a mouse button.
The left sidebar enables you to add your favorite folders into which you usually save your archives and explore their content. At the bottom of the sidebar you have a search form that can help you filter the displayed folders and files.
At the center of the main window is the file list panel that displays the content of the currently selected archive. By right-clicking on a file you can add it to your archive, extract all selected items, delete, preview or rename them. Thanks to the right sidebar you can preview the selected file, check its path, kind, size and dimensions.
If you need to filter the items displayed in the file list panel you can use the top right search form and type in the name of the file you need to find.
Seamless Finder integration
BetterZip’s features can also be accessed via the contextual menu and the practical queue list helps you perform multiple tasks in the desired order. In addition, BetterZip supports Quick Look fact that enables you to preview your files without extracting them from the archive.
Powerful archive password manager
You can use BetterZip to compress multiple files into different archive formats. BetterZip allows you to set the desired compression level, choose the encryption method, split your archive into multiple volumes and remove Mac specific files from the archive. What is more, BetterZip is capable to store a list of archive passwords in your keychain and automatically use them when you want to open an encrypted archive.
