iPack is a full-featured compressed archives manager.


- Compress 7z, zip, jar, and rar archives
- Decompress 7z, zip, jar, rar, cab, deb, iso, arj, gz and bz2 archives
- NEW! Integration with Finder: compress and decompress files in Finder directly
- Quick preview files without extracting them
- Conversion from 7z/zip/rar/gz/bz2 to 7z/zip/rar formats
- Quick archive decompression by dragging files to the drop basket
- Take advantage of the power of multicore CPU: iPack works at least 100% faster when you have 2011 Macs.
- Superb speed benefited by 64-bit computing power
- Full support of international file names (especially Chinese, Japanese and Korean file names created by old archivers)
- Full support of password-protected archives
- Full support of drag and drop
- Multi-volumed archives support
- Search file names inside archives


(1) You must own a valid copy of rar to use rar compression. Rar decompression doesn't require it.

(2) When you compress to multiple volumes or open split volumes, you need to specify the folder of all volumes again.


Release Notes:

It's been a really long time since the last update: so long that OS X got its new name macOS.

* Fixed: possible crash when creating or reopening archives under OS X El Capitan and macOS Sierra.

Great Lightweight Tool, but Fails with Heavy Weight Work - I’ve been using iPack for some time now. For the most part, I think it’s really good. I mainly use it as a 7z frontend, as the developer of 7z (Igor) has no desire to make his cmdline interface even remotely intuitive, and instead feels perfectly fine insulting people from his ivory tower. If it weren’t for the next comment, I would be giving iPack 5 stars however, Any attempt to make a 7Zip archive above about 8GB will simply fail. There were times it would work, but lately, it seems it just can’t handle it anymore. I’m force to go back to the horrid existance that is Igor’s cmdline to make archives when this happens. Interestingly, iPack WILL read these and extract them, but making larger .7z files is the achilles heel of iPack right now. I hope it will improve. There’s seems no way to contact the developer, although he/she does update this from time to time and that’s a good sign as many other apps just stay stale. So if the developer of iPack is listening, please fix the large 7z creation problems and send Igor back into his dungeon of cmdline doom for me.

Version 1.70
Review by JSN-KW

Rubbish, I want my money back - 1) Trying to create a zip file with password, after adding the file to compress and going through all the save settings nothing happens. This would not be a disaster if it wasn't for the next point. 2) There's NO iPack support whatsoever. The link directs you to a blog, no user manual, no faq, no email support, no contact details. They just put their app on the store, take your money and run away with it.. Apple should ban this kind of companies from the appstore. Next time I'll stick to software outside the appstore where I can try it before I buy it or at least check double check that they do have real support.
