Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

This file archiver/unpacker is fast, familiar, and simple to operate, but offers little in the way of unique features and even less in terms of reliability. EasyZip's interface resembles so many similar applications: large function icons over a file list. Operating EasyZip is just as familiar: you choose a directory to open a new ZIP file, and then name it. Oddly, though, EasyZip doesn't open the file-add function in that chosen directory. Unpacking archives follows the same series of steps.

You spend a lot of time browsing to choose the destination directory. We weren't impressed with the interface or functions, and EasyZip moved a step lower by disappointing us with its performance. During testing, we experienced program crashes, freezes, and general quirkiness. Sometimes merely minimizing a window caused EasyZip to freeze.

Testing this application is restricted to 15 days, but most users won't need that long to uninstall EasyZip. An uninspired interface combined with programming errors makes this file compression utility an easy skip.
