WinZip makes its way onto iOS Devices

WinZip on the iPad

WinZip, one of the most popular file compression softwares for Windows (Mac support was added in 2010), has landed on the iOS platform. Countless have relied on the utility for compressing/decompressing files, data backup and even file encryption. And now, as per app description, the mobile zip file management app can:

– Open Zip files and Zip attachments from email
– Browse and view Zip files, including multi-file attachments
– Open encrypted Zip files
– Copy the contents of Zip files to the clipboard
– View Zip file attachments from webmail (Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, etc)
Zipped file types that can be previewed:
– .txt, .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt, .pptx, .rtf, .pdf, .key, .numbers, .pages, .htm, .htm, .jsp, .bmp, .jpg, .jpeg, .tif, .tiff, .png, .gif

WinZip isn’t nearly as sophisticated in terms of its feature-set as ReaddleDocs, but for the price of free, there’s really not much to complain about. You can download the universal app now on the App Store for your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
