Expand your archive files with this handy Mac utility.
Nearly everyone knows that computing means working with archive files such as ZIP, RAR and TAR files. Having a good 'unzipping' app is important no matter what operating system you use. This is why I really like Stuff-it Expander for Mac. It’s a fast, efficient archive utility for your Mac; and it works with the latest OS X versions.
Stuffit Expander has been redesigned for better performance. It expands all of your compressed and encoded files; and access any file, any download or email attachment. It will also scan your compressed files for viruses.
The app supports RAR, TAR, GZIP, BZIP, standard ZIP files among others. All you have to do is drag and drop the compressed file over the main program window and Stuff-It Expander will decompress the file. The app requires OS X Leopard 10.5 or higher, and works with Mavericks as well as Yosemite Beta 7 as of this writing.
App Pro’s: Free
App Con’s: Decompresses only, Free version won't compress files.
Conclusion: Stuff-It Expander is a good decompressing utility. Though OS X has a decent stock tool, it isn't as fast or efficient as Stuff-It Expander. The tool is wicked fast, and handled just about any and every type of archive that I threw at it. The app was easily installed, and worked well. If you're looking for a better than stock tool, this is a really great choice.
