simple to understand

Once you get used to the icons and buttons, it is a helpful app/program. I don't know about paying since other ZIP and RAR ISO Opening programs are free or cheaper.

Great but missing some things.

This app is great. I only wish it had an option to shuffle slideshows. I also wish it had a "folder up" button.

I love the light version, and this version is awesome!

I've used the light version of this app for quite awhile and I am very pleased with it. With the special price being offered I was definitely snagging this upgraded version. It's even more fantastic. Definitely give it a try.

Great

This is great. Using Windows Hello to lock files is awesome. Only real issue is how the system sometimes treats Windows Hello login, telling me to enter the pin instead. But I've discovered that is an issue with Win10, not the app. 5/5, would Zip files again.

Servicable

It does the basic job with no fluff. Kind of an amateurish UI.

Trouble Extracting?

I've had trouble in the past finding an App that would Properly extract items from different compressed files. This App does it PERFECTLY for me. It also extracts ever item I needed extracted, unlike other Apps that leave you with Less than a complete extraction. Great App for Torrents. Must have App.

Nearly perfect archiver for the Windows platform, I wish for a "clean history" option.

Not very good.

Free options such as WinRAR are much better at extracting when permissions or needed, and/or dragging and dropping to folders (or extracting through File Explorer with a right click). This app is much less intuitive & also is much more susceptible to failures if anything is slightly wrong with the zip file. I've almost entirely stopped using it & feel like I wasted my money.
