Zippr – The Mac Utility Has Been Pre-Ordered 11,000+ Times on the Mac App Store

AppYogi Software announce the official launch of Zippr which is Pre-Ordered 11,000 on the Mac App Store. A-Zippr is a simple, fast and powerful Mac utility that allows users to archive Zip, RAR, 7z, SIT, TAR, IOS, ZX, LZIP, Gzip, BZIP2 and unarchives in 70+ different commonly used file formats. It is handcrafted to make it most customizable to archive and unarchive files on macOS.

 

Zippr also makes it easier for users to browse contents of the archives without extracting the file – particularly useful while working with very large files. Apart from that, it also allows users to create encrypted / password protected archives. We are sure our users will love the clean and intuitive UI and the unique features of the app which makes working with archives seamless.

 

Zip and Unzip files instantly:
* Preview file details before extracting
* Protect files with strong 256 bit AES encryption
* Extract only files you choose without having to extract the entire archive
* Notifies once compression or extract completion

 

Archive & Unarchive:(Easy):
* Drag and drop the file to Zipping or unZip
* Resize file size for faster sharing and to reduce storage
* Extract major file formats like Zip, RAR, TAR, LHA, 7Z, JAR and 70 more formats
* Automatically identify to zip or unzip the file when dropped to Floating drop window
* Set floating drop window to any corner of the screen
* Compress files in the different method like fast, faster, normal, slow and slowest

 

File encryption:(Secure):
* Password-protect confidential files and apply powerful AES encryption
* Prevent unauthorized access of email attachments
* Encrypt individual files within a zipped folder

 

Preview Files:(Safe):
* Quick look framework to preview files before unarchive (not even in temp file like other apps)
* Unarchive individual files from an archived folder
* Get detailed file information individually before unarchive
* Native user experience to preview files

 

Now all the archive files you have will automatically open with The Unarchiver and you’ll forget the “Unknown format” alerts and extraction errors forever. Having a RAR extractor for Mac saves you tons of time when dealing with archives.

 

Supports file formats:

* Archive: ZIP, TAR, 7Z, GZIP, BZIP2, ISO, XZ, LZIP

* Unarchive: ZIP, Z01, RAR, 7Z, TAR, LHA, ZIPZ, SIT, SITX, HQX, BIN, MACBIN, AS, GZ, GZIP, TGZ, TAR,GZ, BZ2, BZIP2, BZ, TBZ2, TBZ, XZ, TXZ, ISO, CDI, NRG, MDF, GTAR, Z, TAZ, TAR.Z, LZMA, XAR, XIP, ACE, PAK, SPK, ZOO, LBR, LQR, LZR, PMA, CAB, RPM, DEB, ALZ, DD, CPT, PIT, NOW, SEA, EXE, MSI, CPIO, CPGZ, PAX, WARC, HA, ADF, ADZ, DMS, F, LZX, DCS, PKD, XMS, ZOM, PP, NSA, SAR, JAR, CBZ, CBR, NDS, PKG, A, SWF, LZ, TLZ

File Extractor Quickly Extracts Files Hidden in Other Mac Files

Independent developer Mac OS X File Recovery has released File Extractor 1.0, their new file extraction utility for macOS computers. The app offers users the ability to extract files embedded inside other files, such as PDFs, DMG disk images, and many other files formats. File Extractor can recover over 100 different file formats.

 

File Extractor can extract text files, graphics images, individual files, and other types of files embedded in any blob of data. Once the files have been scanned, users can select the files they’d like to recover with just a few clicks of their mouse. The app uses state-of-the-art algorithms to extract data, even from third-party formats that might otherwise be inaccessible.

 

The app is an excellent utility for use when the need arises to extract data from files, browser caches, DMG disk images, and other data sources. Users will find File Extractor especially helpful when attempting to extract files from those pesky third-party file formats.

 

File Extractor uses state-of-the-art algorithms designed to extract data from any type of file. Users will be surprised at the quantity, quality, and types of data the app will extract from source files. All extracted text is saved as “Raw Text (Plain)” files, meaning they can be read in any plain text editor, like the macOS TextEdit app.

 

Deleted files can be recovered from disk images created using Disk Utility, as the app can scan deleted files from the disk image. The feature can also be used with SD cards, hard drives, and other media types. (On .DMG files created from a digital camera’s memory card (using Disk Utility) users can recover deleted files from their camera or recover files if the card becomes corrupted.)

 

File Extractor can scan:
* PDF files (extracts both text and images)
* Graphics images (it can extract separate images contained in them (such as PSD files))
* Disk images (with the .dmg extension) to recover deleted files
* Any large complex filetype. For example, JPG files embedded in Photoshop documents
* Browser caches. Users can view the files they contain using File Extractor
* Corrupted documents for information that can be salvaged

 

Pricing and Availability:
File Extractor 1.0 is only $14 USD (or an equivalent amount in other currencies) and is available worldwide exclusively through the publisher’s website. A free trial download is also available. Review codes are available to members of the press upon request.

Obvious Matter Releases Fossils for macOS

 

* Take back control of your Documents folder – Is your computer’s storage getting full but you don’t know what to delete anymore? Now you can find old files you don’t need anymore.

* Find, delete or archive your old files – Browse your documents and decide if you want to delete or archive the document. Conveniently, you can choose to archive certain files. These are then stored in a separate folder. This can be useful, for example, for family photos or files that you are not quite sure if you still need them. You can then choose at a later time to further clean these files.

* Quickly preview your files before deleting or archiving them – Fossils uses QuickLook to preview your files. This means that you can also preview files from third-party apps that support QuickLook from within Fossils. We’ve included a QuickLook plugin for zip files that also works in Finder.

 

Fossils supports previewing a large number of file types: image, movies, documents (PDF, Word, Pages, Excel, Numbers, Keynote, and more), zip files, and more.

 

Pricing and Availability:
Fossils 1.1.1 is $4.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the Mac App Store in the Utilities category.

Simplify the Movement of Data on Your Mac With Enact

Mac-Chi has released Enact 1.0.7, their new productivity app for macOS computers. The app offers Mac users the ability to edit, print, and share information from their computer’s clipboard or keyboard via a large number of methods.

 

Simplify the Movement of Data on Your Mac With Enact

 

In addition, users can share posts to Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, save the information as a new note, an addition to an existing note, or print the information directly to their printer. The app also offers the ability to jump to any open tab in the Safari with a click of the mouse in the Mac’s Menu bar or Dock.

 

Users can quickly create a text file, post text directly to popular social networks, or share the data via AirDrop with other Mac or iOS device users. Clipboard contents can also be shared in a variety of file formats including plain text, rich text or PDF formats.

 

Enact is designed to grow in the future, using an “dataSource -> embedded capabilities -> dataTarget,” API model. The developer says new capabilities will be added to the app in the near future, encouraging users to subscribe for 3 months to see for themselves how the app will be improved.

 

Current Features Include:
* Highly Customizable User Interface
* Custom formatting of information before sharing
* Change font, font style, and font size of datasource
* Provides a sentence and paragraph listing for any text
* Share from Enact to popular social networks, including Facebook and Twitter
* Share with other Mac and iOS users via AirDrop
* Print formatted information
* Save and share info in popular file formats, including .txt, .rtf, and .pdf
* Jump directly to any open Safari tab from the Mac Menu Bar or Dock
* Use information from any selected Safari tab
* Drag text onto the Exact Dock icon to customize before dispatching
* Save directly to a new or existing note in the Apple Notes app
* Create a reminder in the Reminders app
* Send text as an SMS message in the Mac Messages app
* Compose an email from your datasource to send in the Mail app
* Have your Mac read aloud highlighted text from the app
* New dataSources for Spotlight and Google Chrome on the way

 

“We’re not offering a normal short trial period. As we get started, I know a few days is not enough to understand what Enact has to offer. This is what’s behind our $0.99 3-month ‘get to know us’ offer,” continues Steve. “Buyers can benefit from Enact right now, but they’ll also get to discover how the app will expand over the next few months. Enact was designed from the ground up to plug in new stuff; Chrome and Spotlight are up first. A subscription really fits our engineering/product rollout at least for the next 6-8 quarters, but know we’ve got a subscription-less, snap-on version of Enact that will begin to make more sense as a product later this year.”

 

Three in-app purchases are available:
* Use – 3 months of Premium – $0.99 USD “pay-as-you-use”
* Subscribe – Auto-renewing 3 months subscription – $0.99 USD
* Buy – Premium – $12.99 USD A one time cost. No upgrade fees or subscription fees – ever

 

Enact 1.0.7 is free to download and is available through the Mac App Store. [GET IT HERE]
