BetterZip 5 has become easier to automate when compared to the previous versions. You can connect the workflow of BetterZip with apps like Alfred, Automator, Dropzone, Hazel, and LaunchBar. All of these apps are awesome in their own right, and BetterZip 5 makes the best use of them.

BetterZip can create archives with these formats: ZIP, TAR, TGZ, TBZ, TXZ, 7-ZIP, XAR, and — using the external command line utility — RAR. You can also add files to or delete files from archives, move and rename files inside archives. Edit archived files in an external application and BetterZip can update your archive. BetterZip Quick Look Generator lets you view the contents of compressed archives through OS X's Quick Look functions. Simply select an archive in the Finder, in Mail, or Spotlight and press the spacebar. BetterZip: the most advanced zip and rar archiver for file compression, encryption. BetterZip makes it easy to work with zip, rar, 7-zip, tar, and xz files and it helps with opening winmail.dat files on your Mac.

You can simply drag files and folders from the archive into any Finder window, onto the desktop or even onto folders in the Dock.

Alternatively, choose File > Extract All… or File > Extract Selected…, choose the destination folder in the open panel and click the Extract Here button. If any items are selected in the archive window, you can tell BetterZip to extract all files anyway by holding down the ⇧ key while choosing the menu command.

To extract an archive using one of the configured presets, choose File > Extract with Preset > Your Preset or click and hold the Extract button in the toolbar and choose the preset from the menu that will pop up after a moment. You can uncompress the archive using the default preset by clicking the Extract toolbar button once (without holding it down too long). If no default extract preset is set, this single click will extract the selected files (or all files, if none are selected) using the standard open panel.
