WinZip 3.5.0
Open compress archives on your iOS device with WinZip

The need for compressed files is far less pressing than it used to be. Increased hard drive sizes mean that there is now less need to worry about running out of space, but the humble zip file does still have a place in modern computing. When transferring files online, things can be greatly sped up by reducing the size of the files in question in advance, and the ability to encrypt compressed archives provides a good security option.

For many people, zip files are generally used for email attachments, and this is true whatever platform you happen to be using. If you receive an email with a compressed attachment when you are using your iPhone or iPad, there are no built in tool that will enable you to view these files. This is where WinZip can help, making it possible to extract the content of zip files and view the files they include.

Anyone who has used the desktop version of WinZip’s famous tool may be disappointed to find that the iOS version of the app only features one way handling of file compression. This means that it is only possible to open compressed files - there is no way to create from within iOS using the WinZip app. However, the app can be used to open zip files that are attached to emails and there is support for previewing a wide variety of file formats.

WinZip includes support for compressed files and the app can be used to open zip files that are attached to the emails you reads in the local mail app, as well as those you read with web based email services. There’s little reason to choose WinZip over any of the countless other free compression tools available for iOS, but it does its job well and if you’d prefer to stick with a name you know, this is a good option. A cut-down free version is also available.

New in version 3.5:
- Direct access to Google Drive and OneDrive in WinZip full version
- Support iWork13 files, including Pages, Numbers and Keynote.
- Access to helpdesk when you open an archive file fail.
- Redesigned to make it easier to navigate, and zip, protect and share files

Verdict:

A simple utility from a well-known name. WinZip for iOS is starting to add new features to set it apart from the crowd.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
