Ratings and Reviews
Stick With Free
I got the Premium because you could delete, now the feature is gone. I was able to highlight and press delete down bottom but now I paid for nothing!
Sorry, gave it an honest shot
As stated in previous reviews, the audio is hijacked. Any audio playing turns off when I have the app open and:
I go to the iPhone Home Screen
I turn off the screen
The screen turns itself off
I think the asking price isn’t much but I wasn’t ready to immediately pay for the program. So I stuck with free, deciding if the program made my zip-life significantly easier, I’d support with a subscription. I needed a difference, as well as consistency.
The program was good enough free. So I wasn’t inclined to pay for free any more for that reason. But I figured if I use it a pretty long time I should still support it.
Well, not even a full month in and anything I downloaded from The WinZip transfer files just vanished. Completely whimsied itself into thin air. So much for that consistency.
All this app did was help me learn how to use files and Google drive together to get what I need without any purchases or apps at all. I hope it improves in the future, but I cannot currently recommend this app to anyone.
Freezes, asks for too many permissions up front
Even though it’s 2023 and everyone uses zip now, someone gave me a .7z file, so I thought I’d try this to extract it. “Extract” immediately froze the app. “Extract to here” gave me a loading bar that was stuck at zero and the app still froze when I tried to cancel it several minutes later.
It also asked for full access to my photos, videos, and media the moment I opened the app. I get that it can be used to archive those things, but maybe wait until I go to do that before trying to access them? The fact that it tried to access them immediately is extremely questionable.
