Is there any good, free program for OS X that can create RAR files? Preferably with a GUI.

It seems there are plenty of options for extracting RAR files, but not that many for compressing them...

Thanks, SimplyRar seems okay. I wasn't sure which answer to accept, but I guess this one, as Simplyrar is free (as in cost), has GUI, and you mentioned it first. :) –  Jonik Oct 8 '10 at 23:32

You can use command line rar for Mac OS X, but it doesn't have GUI. On the other hand, it's useful for scripting. (I feel that it should be mentioned here anyway).

It's not free, but Rucksack is a great app to create all kind of archives, ".rar" included.

Actually, Rucksack no longer supports creating 'rar's. –  The Doctor What Feb 23 '13 at 2:24

BetterZip, it does rar's too, it's easy to use. It does cost though.
