Disapointing, only provides ⭐️Read Access⭐️

After seeing what appeared to be a slick alternative for the late great Zipster, I grabbed this thinking that the "lite" version only handled one archive and only read access.

Opened full version and all it does is provide read access. Could have had this with macOS FUSE and Archive Mounter.

To ZipMounter's credit, it does open a wide variety of archive file types, including .pkg files which is nice.

Still no write access to Zip files is a real let down. Not sure I really need this without write ablity.
