    On the iPhone? Well, PDF Expert can open RAR, for instance.

    Edit: whoops, thought I was in the iOS forum. On my Mac I usually use Archiver for RAR files. But there are lots of RAR expanders for Mac.

    I use The Unarchiver. Its free on the App Store and will handle most archive formats.

    I used macpar deluxe as it's easiest to automate

    I use Unarchiver as well. It simply works without having to configure a lot of stuff, and it's noticeably faster than Windows apps like WinRAR that do the exact same thing.

    I have three that I use--two mentioned here--unarchiver and MacPAR Deluxe (which can do additional things--especially handy if you like Usenet). One of the best still works in Mavericks although it is no longer supported--and it is still available to download--SimplyRAR.
