Rip-off of 7zip

This is clearly a dressed up rip-off of 7zip, a popular, FREE compression tool. There's NO reason why you would need this.

Great utility

Windows seems to be lacking in the area of ez file management and I'm thankful for programs like this that really fill in the gaps.

It doesn't work on Powerpoint files

Tried to zip up a large Powerpoint file that should have grown much smaller and it didn't minimize it at all.

Nice and Easy

Simple interface, very easy to get around on, works perfectly for the large amount of .rar files I need to work with.

No Right-Click Menu Integration

It does what its supposed to very well but as far as I can tell there is no right-click menu integration and that's significant. I'd like to be able to unzip files without having to open the apps interface first, as I can with WinRAR.

A Windows Mobile Essential!

I used a free ZIP and RAR archiver before, which worked okay. However, it lacked a lot of features. So I decided to buy this app, and I immediately found features I was missing in the other app, like the ability to create ZIP archives (both with and without password) and the ability to select which files you want extracted. I am loving it so far and I think every W10M user needs to have this one. Recommended!
