MacPaw Acquires The Unarchiver

The Unarchiver has been around for more than a decade unpacking a wide array of archive file types. Today MacPaw announced it acquired The Unarchiver, which will become part of its stable of Mac utilities, which include CleanMyMac and Gemini II. According to MacPaw’s blog post about the acquisition:

MacPaw developers hope to not only maintain, but improve The Unarchiver. We plan a major facelift and a couple of new features. The app is going to get prettier and we’ll keep it updated for the upcoming macOS. Naturally, it will always stay free for all users.

In recent years The Unarchiver hasn’t received many updates, so it’s good to see the app find a new home where it should fit right in with MacPaw’s other products.
