Better than the built in archive utility

"I originally downloaded Unarchiver to see if it would operate quicker than the regular Mac unarchiver, but I discovered that it actually was much better anyway. It can handle many, many more file types than the built in archive utility, and operates so smoothly."

Evan Allen, US

The Best Unarchiving tool ever

"This has long been my go-to utility for unarchiving files. It handles pretty much everything that you throw at it, and does it guickly and without issue. Definitely the best unarchiving tool on Mac OS X ever!"

Cindy Colombo, CA

Great App

"This is great because I can finally unzip files Mac with Japanese titles and not have the Japanese turn into bogus characters. Most other unarchivers do not extract asian fonts correctly, this does it perfectly!"

Robert Lopez, US
