WinZip Mac Edition
Compress and decompress files using WinZip Mac Edition

For the Windows platform, WinZip has long been a stable application, making it possible to work with a large number of compressed file formats for both compressing and decompressing. Just like Windows, OS X has long supported the creation of compressed archives as well as extraction of files from such archives, but turning to a third party tool opens up a number of additional options.

WinZip Mac Edition supports Zip, Zipx, RAR, LHA and 7Z formats, and the application integrates tightly with OS X. Quick Look can be used to preview the contents of an archive before extraction, and of course you have the option of extracting a single file or an entire archive.

The application also offers security features that can be used to keep your files safe. Archives can be encrypted and password protected so they cannot be accessed by unauthorised people. If you do not want to encrypt and entire archive but would still like to keep files grouped together, you have the option of encrypting individual files.

WinZip Mac Edition acknowledges the fact that one of the main reasons for compressing files is to attach them to emails. As such the program provides the ability to compress and attach a series of files to an email in a single action helping to save time as well as storage space.

This is the new v1.5, which ships includes options for excluding hidden files in archives, better support for Mac-specific .app archives, an improved interface and better archive sharing features.

Verdict:

WinZip Mac Edition is comparable to its Windows counterpart. It is fast and effective, but it is a Windows app at heart and there are cheaper alternatives available that are just as capable.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
