CNET Editors' review
WinZip zips and unzips files very quickly and even includes some extra features that make getting to your documents easy. It might be even better than the desktop software you know and love. It won't wow you with its looks, though.
Though you probably might not have any on your phone, this program handles ZIP files really well. It can zip or unzip a folder in seconds, even if the folder is larger in size. It even works on encrypted files. Finding things is easy thanks to WinZip's list menu, but it definitely sacrifices style for substance. Unlike the desktop version, this one doesn't make you pay after a certain amount of days or uses. Once you've unzipped a folder, you can view the contents right from the app. The app even includes a built-in viewer for Office documents. You won't be able to edit them, but you will be able to read them without any ads getting in the way. Some dedicated Office suites can't even promise that.
You couldn't ask for much more than this solid program. It packs neat performance with a few really handy features. There aren't a lot of frills, though. Since that has become standard for archive software, you shouldn't expect anything different from WinZip. It brings everything you like about the desktop version to your smartphone or tablet.
