Editors' Review

by   / May 05, 2013

Users who handle large files may need an application to compress and extract them. Keka for Mac performs all of the functions expected of a file archive application, and has many options that would be useful for advanced users.

The program is free, and better yet, comes without any advertisements. The download and installation completed as quickly as expected. There did not appear to be any technical support or product updates available, and furthermore, there were no instructions, which less experienced Mac users might find disappointing since the program's options can be confusing. The user interface also lacks helpful details, but the program proved easy enough to use. The settings menu has options for type of output, with all of the commonly-used formats available. Users can also adjust the speed of the compression and the output file location. While there are few additional options, Keka for Mac also allows extraction of compressed files, which is a must for this type of program. Once set to default, the program can be operated by right-clicking on files that need to be compressed. During our testing, compression completed as quickly as in similar programs.

Despite its dated interface, Keka for Mac performs compression and extractions well and works with a number of useful formats. This program is suitable for advanced Mac users dealing with larger files.
