  • I'm a hipster. I got this when it was free :)
  • I just use 7-zip. It's free and better. :P
  • I also got it for free in the Good old times.
  • Got it when myAppfree gave it free.... :)
  • Been using it since one of the free giveaways - they used to have one every few months. Way better than subscribing to WinZip UWP :)
  • Great app.  Buy it!
  • is it one better than 7 Zip?
  • 7-zip is good for the desktop.  This runs on my phone which means I can open files people send when on the road.
  • Best Zip archiver in world
  • From $19.99 to $0.99! I don't understand them
  • That's a marketing trick. They put the price on 19.99$ and sell for 0.99$ 99% of the time. Such scams are not just allowed in the Windows Store but even promoted by it and by the Windows blogs.
  • It's not a scam. I bought this in its infancy and they are supporting it like no other. I use it on my PC, why would I download .rar trial when it is constantly trying to install crap every other update?
  • The question above was about the pricing and yes the app pricing is a pure scam and would be expelled from every store except from the Windows Store where that discount is promoted.
  • Ohh thanks, I get it now
