There are two version of Express Zip, a free one and a premium one you pay for. We only tested the free version and found it to be efficient and fully featured.
The only thing we’ll say about the free version is that you will occasionally be asked to make sure you are using it for non-commercial use and be prompted to upgrade to the ‘pro’ version. It does show ads for other products created by the same design team. That said, we found them to be unobtrusive and didn’t detract from using the software. Overall, Express Zip is a fully formed, decently featured compression software that does all that you would expect from compression software.
For those not in the know ‘zipping’ files is a way of reducing or ‘archiving’ files in such a way that they remain unaltered but their overall size is reduced. Put simply, a file with a .ZIP extension is a compressed file and the most widely used archive format in the world today.
