* On Mountain Lion, you can store archives on iCloud and share them with other Macs and iOS devices using iUnarchive for iOS *

With iUnarchive, you can create, modify and open archives. Instead of cluttering the disk with files, you can preview and open files directly from within iUnarchive. Only files selected for preview and extracted files are actually uncompressed.

Please note: extracting files with iUnarchive replaces existing files with the same name in the same folder.

If an archive contains another archive, you can choose to open the nested archive with iUnarchive.

Archives that can be opened by iUnarchive include zip, rar, 7-zip, tar, gzip, bz2/BZip2, LhA and StuffIt, including password protection for zip, 7-zip, rar and multi part rar.

Archives of type zip, jar, war, ear, cbz, 7z, tar, tar.gz and tar.bz2 can be created and updated.

Files opened from within iUnarchive using the 'Open with' option that have been edited can be updated back into the archive. iUnarchive will detect the changed files and present the option to update the files.

Files can be added or extracted with iUnarchive using drag and drop from or to the Finder.

iUnarchive uses the Quick Look framework to preview files. File types that can be previewed in iUnarchive include JPG, PNG, GIF, XLS, DOC, PPT, PDF, RTF and iWork (Pages, Numbers and Keynote) files, but also a large number of text files and programming language source files which use syntax highlighting. Supported types include c, h, cpp, hpp, cs, html, css, js, java, php, py, rb, sql, xml, xsl and wsdl, depending on which Quick Look plugins are installed. An interesting site listing QuickLook plugins is www.quicklookplugins.com.

Works like a charm - Finally a way to see what you are unpacking before you actually have to start extracting

Not working for bz2/BZip2 Files - I know it seems harsh to give only one star simply because this program failed at one file type, but that's the entire reason I purchased this program. I searched the Apple APP store for an application that would help me read bz2 files (my Console System.log archive files). When I try to open one of those, I get the message "Archive could not be opened." I didn't even bother searching for a free program, because with free programs you typically don't get documentation and they don't deliver on promises. So, I spent $5 on this utility. However, this $5 utility doesn't open bz2 as promised, and there's no built-in Help. Even free programs come with help. So, then I searched Download.com for something free and found Pacifist. The key to opening these bz2 files is to let the Apple Archive utility expand them to cpgz files. Then, drag the cpgz file to Pacifist and choose View Files. By the way, the iUnarchive won't let me uncompress or view cpgz files either. I'm hopeful that my $5 won't be a total waste and at some point the publisher will create something more user friendly that works (and comes with a help file). Please fix this program. Thanks.

Slightly slow processing for larger archives - It works fine, and it does it’s job. It has a clean UI and every small feature you would expect in an unarchiver. The only thing I’ve noticed as of yet is that it takes a minute or two to open larger archives (In this instance, 8GB zip),but other than that it works great! Worth what I paid for it!
