Multi-ZIP-licity is my golden find for this month. Do you ever surf for items, only to end up with a folder full of zip files you must extract one at a time, only to put the contents into the SAME folder? Since I've become hooked on a certain simulation game, I do. To me, unzipping all those files one at a time takes the fun out of surfing: I spend twice as much time unzipping and putting files away as I did finding the files in the first place!

Here's the answer to my problem: Multi-ZIP-licity. Multi-ZIP-licity allows you to extract an unlimited number of files to either an existing folder or new folder which it can create for you. I ran Multi-ZIP-licity through its paces one day after about four hours of surfing for game extras and I'm totally impressed. All you have to do is select the zip files you want the program to extract, choose the folder you want the contents delivered to, and click "extract all files". I had collected 98 files whose contents all belonged in a single file within my game -- Multi-ZIP-licity extracted all of them in under a minute!

The shareware version "reminds" you to register with nag screens, but it is fully functional. The website says nothing about any time limit. The current version does not contain a help file, but the user interface is so clean and simple, I had no problem using it. It's well worth the miniscule $10 U.S., folks -- go try it!
