    My Thoughts on CAM UnZip

    There really isn't much to say about Cam UnZip except that it's easy to use. I like that you can drag and drop files into the program to add to a new archive, but you can't even drag over existing ZIP files to be extracted - you must manually open an archive file to unzip it.

    Because only one format is supported for both creating and extracting an archive, I have to honestly recommend you use another program. I don't find the features in CAM UnZip to be so overwhelmingly wonderful to choose it over a similar program that can do more.

    However, if you know for a fact that you'll just be dealing with ZIP files, then go ahead and install CAM UnZip. But if you're looking for something better, I strongly recommend 7-Zip or PeaZip.
