Decompressor with multi – format and encrypted password manager.
BetterZip is a multiformat compressor and decompressor, compatible with most formats, offering unique features such as password manager for encrypted files, file encryption with AES-256 algorithm and editing files without extracting them .
With the password manager BetterZip you can open password protected from a master key files. BetterZip will search the appropriate password. Furthermore, BetterZip generates its own files compressed using the AES-256 algorithm.
But the most interesting feature is that it allows BetterZip edit the contents of the ZIP or RAR shift with an external application, such as TextEdit, Photoshop or Office without extracting files out. On the other hand, BetterZip also shows images and documents using Quick Look of OS X.
And last but not least, BetterZip will give information about the space occupied by each file, the read and write permissions, the appropriate format and Modification date.
