Zip View Pro for Mac
Zip View Pro is an easy-to-use Mac OS X application which enables you, on the one hand, to open archived files (ZIP, RAR, 7-Zip and JAR) without decompressing them. Secondly, Zip View Pro allows you to extract only selected files from the archive.
The application supports OS X’s built-in QuickLook tool for previewing files inside an archive. You can simply press space on a selected file or click on its designated icon on the lower bar of the app’s main window to do so.
Furthermore, Zip View Pro features a minimalistic user interface comprised of an upper bar (that displays the path of the current folder), a middle area which displays the archived content, as well as a lower bar that includes a slider for enlarging / diminishing the file icons.
Zip View Pro is also designed to make it easy for you to browse the contents of a compressed file. As mentioned, the upper bar serves as a navigation tool for the archive’s folders. You can even right click on it to browse the archive using hierarchical menus.
To open an archive in Zip View Pro, you can just drop it onto the app’s dock icon or use the standard File > Open option. Moreover, Zip View Pro provides several ways to uncompress selected files inside the archive.
One method consists of dragging and dropping selected files onto the desktop or on the Finder’s windows. Of course, it’s also possible to copy / paste files into the desired location. Another way is to use the context menu of a file and click on the “uncompress” option.
Finally, you can click on the Uncompress Archive or Uncompress Selected button (which appears only if a file has been selected) on the lower bar, and then choose the output folder. In addition to this, double-clicking on a file will open it in the appropriate 3rd party application.
