Editors' Review Staff Mar 3, 2013

With mobile computing becoming the norm, more and more utilities are being made available for phone and tablet use. WinZip has now introduced its zip file tool to the mobile world, and simply put: It works.

WinZip smartly opens with a two-page, quick tutorial for opening zip files on your iPhone or iPad. To open an e-mail zip attachment, just tap and hold the attachment and then tap Open in WinZip when the menu pops up. To open files from a Web page, the steps are the same. It's as easy as that. Using a zip attachment in our e-mail, we followed the instructions and were able to open our zip file; each of the Word docs in the zip file appeared on the screen where we could tap to view each one. Likewise, when we opened a zip file from a Web page, the files appeared for view on our screen, and they remained there until we sent them to the Trash to delete.

We love apps that are simple and straightforward to use. WinZip definitely fits that description. We recommend it for all users.
