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.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
