Introducing WinZip® Mac 6, the latest version of WinZip's powerful file sharing application that makes it simple to manage, protect, and share your files - whether they're in the cloud, on the network, or your system. With the new WinZip Mac 6, powerful file management, industry leading compression and encryption, and simple sharing are now available in a single app for your Mac.

Redesigned to offer a highly visual way to manage and work with your files, WinZip Mac 6 is more responsive and easier to use than ever. With new enhancements to WinZip Mac, including the Files pane, WinZip apps now offer a more consistent experience to boost your productivity across virtually any platform, including Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android.

"With WinZip Mac 6, we're excited to offer a unified environment where you can quickly accomplish your file management and sharing needs. As our reliance on cloud storage grows, it can feel increasingly complicated to manage your digital world, know where your information is saved, and keep it safe. WinZip now gives you a single app that makes working with and sharing files on your Mac simple and worry free," said Bill Richard, Vice President of Development for WinZip.

Thanks to new features including the Files pane, WinZip Mac 6 boosts productivity by enabling you to manage your files, zip and unzip files, and add powerful AES encryption - all through a single, unified, file-sharing environment.

  • New! Files pane for file management and sharing: Be more productive with the new file management features in WinZip Mac 6. Use the new Files pane to browse, select, zip, and unzip your local, network, or cloud files easily without having to move between Finder and browsers to hunt through folders or multiple cloud services. Delete and rename files in the cloud and between accounts and drives. Use the new File pane context menu to get info about a file, do a Quick Look, see Package Contents for Mac application files, and much more. Protect your privacy by encrypting files before they are saved to your Mac, uploaded to the cloud, or shared via email.
  • Enhanced! Unzip from more file types: WinZip Mac 6 makes it easy to unzip more compressed file types including: gzip files (.gz, .tgz), Unix tar files (.tar), Unix compressed files (.z, .tz, .taz), LZMA2 compressed files (.xz, .txz), BZip files (.bz, .bz2. .tbz, .tbz2), and Virtual Disk files (vdisk).
  • Enhanced! Zipx File Compression: With new LZMA2 support, WinZip Mac 6 can deliver smaller compressed file sizes, especially when zipping files that have some amount of compression already, such as Microsoft Office files.
  • ENHANCED! MP3 Compression: Keep more music on your phone or on a cloud service, or share playlists more easily. WinZip now compresses your MP3 files by 15 - 20% on average with no loss in quality, thanks to the enhanced Zipx format.

WinZip Mac 6 integrates with the Mac OS X Quick Look tool, enabling you to browse the contents of a Zip file before it is unzipped. With support for Zip, Zipx, RAR, LHA, 7Z, JAR, and WAR formats, WinZip makes it easy to open any compressed file you receive, no matter which platform it was created on. With apps for Mac, iPad and iPhone, WinZip makes it safe and easy to share files on your favorite Apple hardware.
