WinZip now available on the iPhone and iPad
So, you are waiting for this extremely important file to be emailed to you, and when it finally hits your inbox, you realize that you cannot open it because it has been compressed with WinZip. That wouldn't have been a problem if you had a computer nearby, but when an iPhone or an iPad is all you have on hand, frustration can ensue.

Fortunately, WinZip is now available on iOS. The popular file compression software lets you open zipped email attachments, such as documents or images, right there on your iPhone or iPad. Opening attachments is possible when you are using a web email interface as well.

The app can't let you make your own Zip archives, however. Doing so would still require you to use a computer, but hey, the mobile app comes free of charge, so you can't really complain. If you want to download WinZip for your iPhone or iPad, just hit the source link below.
