Looking For A Zip File Utility Compatible With Mac Computers? WinZip Is One Of The Industry Leaders, And Here We Look At How This Mac Software Matches Up.
As one of the leading file compression programs on Microsoft Windows operating systems, WinZip is now ready to move into the Mac market with the new WinZip Mac Edition. This powerful zip utility will make sharing large files between Windows and Mac computers even easier, allowing compressed zip files to be transferred across the operating systems quickly without as many compatibility issues.
Unlike some Windows-to-Mac file and disk software, WinZip Mac Edition has been specifically developed for Mac users to help compress and secure files with the latest in file compression and encryption technology compatible with Apple's operating systems. The new functions and user interface introduced in WinZip Mac Edition 1.5 make it easier to zip, encrypt and share files, along with options like:
- Extended support for compressed file formats
- Resizing and compressing image files
- Sharing zipped files between Mac and PC platforms
- Creating WinZip's smallest files to date (.Zipx); and
- Easy steps to zip and burn files to a CD or DVD
The drag-and-drop function of the program also makes selecting files to zip a quick, simple process and offers file encryption for more sensitive zipped data. Users can also apply a password to specific files when adding them to a Zip file, without having to encrypt the entire contents of the compressed file.
WinZip for Mac has also gone one step further than the Windows version of the program by integrating with the Quick Look tool for better previewing functionality. That means Mac users can browse zipped folders in a familiar way before deciding to unzip them.
While it may seem strange to pay for a file compression program when there are free options available, many of them are not specifically designed for Macs and do not work as well with the Mac operating system. For people who share large files between computers and operating systems, WinZip Mac Edition is definitely worth a look.
