WinZip arrives on iOS, realizes you won't pay for it
The WinZip file compression utility arrives on iOS for free
Remember WinZip? Did a chill just run down your spine? Not to worry, you might actually be happy that WinZip is available on iOS.
For one thing, WinZip realized that the only amount you've been historically willing to pay for the service is $0, so the app is free. No annoying registration fee warnings this time around.
As TUAW points out, the utility allows users to:
- 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
