Ratings and Reviews
Minor Quibbles, Good Archiver Replacement
I've had Keka on my account for quite some time. I'm not primarily a Mac user and have extended durations away from the platform. I don't remember what Keka was like when I first purchased(?) it, but I recently wanted to archive a bunch of files to send off, only to open the app and be stumped by the UX understanding implied by your interface design. Since I hadn't looked at the store page, I had no idea what the window that popped up was for. I assumed it was asking maybe what default format and options I wanted. So when I closed that window, there was another settings window, which only further confused me. So, in the interest of being clear with your UX, please add a line or indication that the first window that opens is a drop target for files to be compressed, that the format selection in the top right is actually the format that will be used on the intended output, that kind of stuff. If you look at it with a fresh pair of eyes, the window doesn't declare it's intent anywhere for someone coming in fresh. Maybe everyone looks at the photos on the store page, but I downloaded it from my purchase history... so I missed those images. Anyway, minor gripe aside, it's a great app that functions as intended. The icon is cute, but lacks some contrast to see what it is for folks like myself with less than optimum vision.
The best if not one of the best file compression
I found this program exploring the app store. I didn't really felt the need to download it due that I had another program for that. At the end of the day, I lost files from the other program and it wasn't working at all later on. I remembered this one I decided to give it a try. I have run multiple tests and different situations where I put on test how good and efficient the program is and can be. This app is worth the money and it's super effective and get the work done. Totally reconmended!!!
I had a bit of a learning curve being new to macos but this is a great app. I use it to password protect sensitive files on Icloud storage since there is no way to password protect folders natively. This works great because I just zip up the folder, encrypt and password protect it.
I want to thank the developer for replying to my previous review. They let me know I needed to set Keka as a default app otherwise extraction would fail. Thank you.
Developer Response ,
Be sure to open those files with Keka, macOS can open 7Z files but can’t extract AES-256 encrypted files.
